Fodor's Review

Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.

For a great taste of Provence right in the heart of Montpellier, this is the place to go. The decor is nothing to write home about—spartan Provençal feel, even with the odd splash of a painting on the wall—but the cuisine proves a very satisfying gastronomic surprise. You come to L'Olivier for the good food. The filet de sole aux homard et morilles (sole and lobster in a wild mushroom sauce) and the slow-cooked Costières du Gard pigeon aux cepes (regional pigeon in a wild mushroom sauce) might not equal the three-star extravaganzas served up at Le Jardin des Sens, but they are well worth the price.
