Any good restaurants in Montpellier for a Saturday night anniversary dinner?

We're looking for something intimate with a good wine list

  1. Depending on when you are planning your evening, I heartily recommend Le Mimosa, some 30km to the west in St. Giraud. (They are closed from 4 October through March 24.) Bridget Pugh's food is lovely and David Pugh's wine pairings are local and inspired (or excellent bottles from other premium wine areas if you prefer). We never fail to book here whenever we are within a hundred km. Also highly recommended is staying in their tiny hotel a few km away in St. Saternin. In my estimation, a perfect anniversary evening.

    1. Obviously le Jardin des Sens--been a while but still great, one assumes (2 stars Michelin, if I remember right)

        There's also the Pourcell Brothers other restaurant in Montpellier - La Compagnie de Comptoirs. We ate there a few years a go and it's great - a more affordable version of Le Jardin des Sens, and as far as I remember, the dining room was lovely.
