Although our first choices had already been taken off the menu (this was a Monday) we found delicious alternatives, Rouille de Seche, A fresh wild Barre, and tiny Scallops/ St Jacques, Gambas, Beignets de Calamari, and a perfect Tarte Tatin. We walked past and reserved a few hours before - and all the tables were reserved so its a good... More

This is in a great location in the heart of the historic district. We walked past, liked the look of the food and decided to try it. It was a fresh as could be and the food and service were impeccable. We started with oysters, white bait and I had fish soup and a heritage tomato with mozzarella. All excellent,... More

Very good location with airy tables on the street & friendly service. Fish was fresh & well cooked, some meat courses (confit delicious) & some Spanish influences. Very reasonable at 70 euros for 3 courses plus 2 pichets of wine. But delightful staff were run off their feet - fine if you are happy to chill, not otherwise.

The title says it all. 3 course menus at a reasonable price emphasising sea food. Great clams, good ceviche great fish soup. Decent fresh fish of the day and a sort of fish Mattelote with a single shrimp. Tiramasu was tres bien. Reasonable wine prices good service from nice people.

Most dishes were oily, tasteless and pricey. Any fish and chips in London would serve better dishes than here let apart a proper fish restaurant as this is supposed to be one of them ! Good luck to future visitors

Sitting outside is the best. The razor clams were awesome as was the crudo! The whole sea bream fish was perfectly seasoned. The calamari á la plancha was fantastic!

I had oysters, and they were delicious. Both my friend and I had the beignets maison de calamars. They were very good and crispy when hot, but for our taste there was much too much dough. However, extremely nice atmosphere, a very French place that is totally recommendable!

Given other reviews, it looks as if care is needed when choosing a meal in this maritime themed small restaurant. Our starters (razor clams and tempura prawns) were excellent, the clams very fresh and simply dressed with olive and parsely, and the batter on the prawns light and crispy. Mains were also good, the scallop pasta with a mild squid... More

After reading good reviews, my son had booked this restaurant for the first night of our weekend in Montpellier to visit our French family. We were the first customers to arrive and took the set menu - choosing fish soup and the 'fish of the day' en papillote. The soup was watery and tepid and was accompanied by croutons that... More
