My boyfriend and I arrived in Montpellier during a major rain storm, we stumbled across pl. Jean Jaures and found Cafe Joseph. We ordered a beef burger and chicken burger both came with home made chips, the burgers are outstanding and full of flavour. My bf didn't rate the fries he found them greasy, I however thought they were pretty... More

It was a nice evening to sit outside with a beer and the classic burger Joseph. Waiter was very friendly and willing to talk in English. I can recommend Cafe Joseph.

Best location in Montpellier for people watching and for taking a break from the heat under the "machines a brume". The staff was nice and friendly, the atmosphere very pleasant, the food (canard and tartare) fresh and tasty. Will go back for sure

Unfortunately the lunch was a disappointment... The service was extremely basic, it took time to get someone's attention and the food was served cold. The meat not really tender as well... The environment is nice but we won't try again. Probably better for a drink only.

A nice restaurant/café with cordial service as its best asset. I ordered a tartar tuna dish which turned out to be really nice. They have a vast outdoor seating. I would have been better if the indoor seating was air conditioned on humid days.

The food was correct and good, but the service was amazing. We had dinner with our three kids, and the staff, especially a young lady, has been fantastic. Very attentive and caring, we had a great time, it felt like the perfect customer experience.

Since 24 years, Cafe Joseph, or even CJ, or Cafe Jo' for many is on the center of Montpellier. This place of life in constant turmoil is a crossroads of single generations in Montpellier. Eclecticism of the parties that are proposed only matched cultured human dimension in coffee by all staff, making it a place where people like to chat with everyone. Cafe Joseph became through that over time an institution stimulating the Montpellier nights. Since summer 2010, the Cafe Joseph has expanded its business by developing a continuous catering service from noon to midnight. Cafe Joseph is also "L'Etage". In a Haussmann frame in the center of Montpellier, Upstairs Cafe Joseph is the ideal place to organize your company parties, galas, conferences, product launches or parties with friends. Do not hesitate to contact us to establish together a performance that will stick closer to your expectations. Cafe Joseph is also the retransmission of all televised sports events on the screens of the Cafe.
