This is a very good restaurant beautifully presented with as garden you can sit in at lunch or when the weather gets warmer ( this was April). The food was good as was the choice. I still felt that I had enjoyed the experience at l'atelier gourmand better the night before. I think it was down to the staff. Efficiency... More

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel desk staff Makreb, and it was exactly as he described. .. Food cooked with care in a serene atmosphere with lovely service. The grand marnier souffle was a standout experience. Priced very reasonably.

Recommended by the hotel next door, we found Le Petit Jardin to be of good quality with good service. Two three course menus were available on the evening we visited and both offered good choices. We went with one of each and enjoyed the experience. The sommelier had good advice re wines for our food choices and for a digestive... More

Although named Le Petit Jardin, the jardin or garden section was closed for the season which is a miss as I am sure it makes all the difference. Upscale food with very good service, especially the young woman. Not a restaurant where one would wear blue jeans. Very knowledgeable Sommelier who made an excellent recommendation.

We went for a business dinner and we sat by the open courtyard. We felt immediately welcome with many well-dressed waiters waiting by our table. Food was great and service was better than above. Wine was always topped up and the waiter appeared as soon as you wanted to order something. Price wise it's not the cheapest by any means... More

I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Montpellier. Service is prompt, there are very nice indoor & outdoor areas to eat & the atmosphere is so relaxing. The waiter suggested a red wine to accompany our steak & when they arrived, both were delicious.

We visited this restaurant on the endorsement of our hosts, this is a hidden secret in the midst of the busy city. On arrival in Montpellier we went straight to the restaurant to make a reservation for lunch, we would never have noticed this restaurant without the recommendation. The service was outstanding and the food sublime: a highlight of our... More

After walking through the old parts of Montpellier we finally found this wonderful restaurant where you can dine outside in a beautiful garden. We stayed inside because the night was a bit chilly. We chose from the € 39 3 course menu and enjoyed every bite of it. Do not miss it when in Montpellier.

The food was amazing and presented in a very nice way. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the location is just amazing in a little relaxing garden in the center, in front of the cathedral. I really recommend it to those visiting Montpellier for a small city trip
