Located in southern France, Montpellier is the fastest growing city in the country. Established well within the city’s center, Boutonnet is a bustling neighborhood where most locals and visitors flock to enjoy a night out on the town or a delicious bite to eat. Read our list to discover the 10 best restaurants in Boutonnet, Montpellier.

1. La Cocotte

Restaurant, French

La Cocotte serves classic French favorites. Order menu items such as duck breast with goat cheese, casserole, French onion soup, poached foie gras, chicken polenta, and more. The menu is prix fixe, so you can enjoy an appetizer, an entree, a drink, and dessert all for a very affordable price. The restaurant is tucked away, hidden from most tourists, so you’ll be surrounded by mostly locals and regulars, giving you an authentic Montpellier experience. However, this means that the wait staff may only speak French.

2. Le Pré Vert

Restaurant, Brasserie, Cafe, Mediterranean, French, Vegetarian

A neighborhood cafe, Le Pré Vert is bright, fun, and oozes folly. The front entrance is adorned with strings of flowers, flourishing plants, and brightly colored miniature furniture perfect for children to enjoy. The back patio is also equipped with bright furniture, including orange and pink tables, and green and yellow chairs. Come and enjoy refreshing salads, goat cheese toast, minced beef burger, potato gratin, and more.

3. Burger N Co

Restaurant, French, Vegetarian, Fast Food

Burger N Co is no fast food restaurant. The funky Montpellier favorite is themed after rock and roll, with burgers titled after famous songs. Bite into a juicy ‘Personal Jesus,’ ‘Stairway to Heaven,’ ‘Highway to Hell,’ or ‘I Love it Loud.’ There are a total of nine signature burgers on the menu, not including custom and vegetarian options. Order your burger with a side of crispy onion rings and an ice-cold beer, making a perfectly delicious and filling meal. Be sure to get there early if you decide to stop in during the lunch hour; there is limited seating inside and it’s a very popular place.

5. La Bistrote

La Bistrote

La Bistrote is chic, elegant, trendy, and affordable. Pull up a chair and order dishes such as escargot, baked razor clams, lamb shanks, beef tartare, and more. Then, compliment your meal with a phenomenal glass of wine. La Bistrote has everything from pinot noir and merlot, to chardonnay and sauvignon blanc. Wine bottles are used as part of the decor, along with a luxurious chandelier, quaint table lamps, chalkboard cheese platters, and framed art and photographs hung on the white, brick walls.
