We were having difficulty to find a good fish restaurant in Montpellier and as a last choice chose Le Pescator. The fish we wanted, Halibut, was off the menu so we chose Oysters to start, followed by Poelee de Saint Jacques and Medallion de Lotte, both only average we have had better.
Reasonable choice of wines. Would not go back.

We were greeted by a friendly waitress and were given the choice of a table. The menu offered simple fish and seafood dishes, which is what we wanted. We both ordered the fish soup as a starter and it was very good, nice texture, well spiced and not too "fishy". As a main dish we ordered one plate of grilled prawns and one grilled cuttlefish. They both were cooked all right, and served with some ratatouille as side dish. They were both ok dishes, but nothing special. Wine prices were reasonable. We didn't order dessert because the restaurant was too cold inside and we just wanted to go back to our hotel room. To be fair, this was during the cold spell, the temperature had been below zero outside for a few days, which is unusual for that part of France and it seems like the heating system could not cope. I would like to add that they had nice jazz music in the background, which is quite rare in France!

We went with the 30 Euro menu:
The smoked salmon for the entree was bad - you could smell it. The antipasto was limited and had a piece of the same salmon. Both were changed for salmon that was not rotten. with a limited apology. We now dreaded to next courses.The Dorade was passable but not up to expectations. The dessert, tarte tatin, was soggy and had clearly been microwaved, as had the potato dish with the dorade. T he redeeming factor was a very pleasant bottle of local dry Muscat.
Good 'Marine' decor and good tableware etc.
We expected more from the tourist bureau description. However, out of season there are very few customers and one can see how hard it is ti survive. If they want to be a genuine fantastic fish restaurant, why not push it upmarket and the quality with it?
Not recommended with its current quality and performance.
