We had a delightful lunch as Pastis, sitting under the umbrellas a few steps from the restaurant. The menu was inventive, and each course was delightfully thought out and more importantly, truly wonderful. This was one of the best meals we had on our trip to the region.

This restaurant was simply fantastic. It is a lovely restaurant tucked away in a little rue. The menue is set and varies day to day according to fresh local produce. The wine selection was superb and the service was first class despite my embarrassingly poor command of the French language. Loved this place so much I went back a second time during my stay in Montpellier.

Make sure you book at least one week ahead if you don't want to miss this unforgettable experience. The restaurant is quite small (one of the pros : you get full attention by the staff, little noise and a feeling of intimacy...).
In the heart of the old town a very pleasant place to surprise your taste : the products (all selected, fresh and coming from the region's best producers in each field) are carefully chosen and used with creativity and ... passion. This passion for EXCELLENT food and wine you will share with Jean Philippe and Daniel (the chef). You are in for a surprise, as you will not know what will be in your plate till it is on the table, and a divine surprise each time.

Absolutely the best combination of haut cuisine and excellent service in this price range in Montpellier. For €36.50 you get 3 amazing courses, plus an Amuse, plus a Verrine, and then petit fours after dessert. Tables are spaced well apart in a casually elegant room with minimalistic decor warmed by the tall limestone walls. The room seats no more than 20 diners, with an open kitchen so you can watch the chefs in action. Usually a small restaurant like this is operated by just two people but here you have four, the Chef and assistant, and the Maître D' and his assistant. This enables the perfect service; semi-formal but warm and efficient in the way that only the French do so well.
The best two meals we had while in Montpellier and we wish we could stay longer. Do not be afraid of the absence of a menu. What you will get is good ingredients, cooked to perfection, with truly amazing sauces. Incredible value, rush there before they increase the prices! Reservation essential.
