Located on a quaint square in the middle of the downtown pedestrian area, it offers ok food at reasonable prices. Special mention for the high quality meat even though the cooking was not always as expected.

This popular spot in central Montpellier majors on pork and lamb, cooked slowly on a rotisserie. Other dishes are available! It is situated in a picturesque square with several other restaurants. The food is delicious. Staff were very helpful, and quickly moved us inside when an unexpected rain shower interrupted our meal.

We really want to like this place, cause the service was good, and my husbands steak was good, but when I'm in France and eating at a better restaurant, I expect a perfectly cooked duck, and sadly mine was way overcooked, and not very tasty. Everything else was fine, nice wine and ambiance. But grey cooked duck made this a... More

Was there last night for dinner. The location is very good, walking distance from the center. Wanted to eat the Tartare de Poisson but it was late. The waiter suggested a kind of Spaghetti with shrimps. It's was not as the Italian spaghetti but an enormous portion. We were happy to find a waiter who speaks Italian as there is... More

They serve good roasted meat. But they had less luck with the very dry accompanying potatoes. Very good wines by the glass at reasonable prices.

This place was amazing. Now it's just average. Too bad. I loved the energy and the intimacy you found there before. Now you can eat the same dishes and the concept is the same as before but it lacks that little plus. There are many other options around. Ther

Ate dinner here and really enjoyed the food. Price of food and wine was average. Presentation was above average. I would eat here again.

It's a nice restaurant in a nice square, if the weather allows it you can enjoy a nice dinner outside. I have eaten the "magret de canard", but it was not the best I have eaten. Service is a bit slow, their was only 2 waitresses.

Nice square, dissapointing food with ingredients of poor quality (canard, carpaccio et fromage de chèvre).

Me and my friend decided to try this restaurant situated on a little nice square following TripAdvisor advice. We asked the waiter to advice us on the best dishes they had and we ordered them ("epaule d'agneau rotie a la broche.." and "epaule de porcelete rotie a la broche.."). After less then 5 min we received 2 heated up dishes... More
