Montpellier has cultivated a certain way of life that's not complete without a fine dining experience. Like many of its Mediterranean neighbours, Good restaurants are not in short supply in this beautiful southern city. And given the talent of those who own and operate the city's restaurants, some may think that it's thanks to these culinary virtuosos that the city owes its nickname of "la Surdouée" (the Gifted).

    From Fougasse bread, la Brasucade de moules (mussels cooked over coals) or la Chichoumeille (a sort of ratatouille) with its sweet scent of the market, Montpellier's specialities evoke a certain mystery, hidden beneath their enigmatic names. And yet, these flavours are just waiting to be tasted. Treat yourself to a meal in one of the following restaurants, whether you're looking for a relaxed atmosphere, luxury, or just something in between.

    As its name suggests, Le Petit Bistrot is one of those unpretentious places that's always a good place to be. This is down to its owners' warm welcome, but above all to its fine French cuisine based on simple, subtly enhanced and beautifully dressed produce.

When the weather is nice, settle down on its adorable micro-terrace to make your choice from its small but inventive menu. The generous plates of duck parmentier, sliced chicken and its crumble-style ratatouille, old-style lentils and pan-fried scallops leave little room for its classic but masterfully executed desserts.
