Le Jardin des Sens is a Michelin Star restaurant located a short walk away from Louis Blanc in a fashionable and contemporary four-star hotel. Its setting is spectacular: a glass room with views to a typical Mediterranean garden. Their menu changes seasonally, guaranteeing the freshness of their ingredients. Their sophisticated dishes include a fusion of flavors like this combination of Mediterranean flavors and textures: tuna tartar with crustacean cannelloni, nuts in a pasta salad with squid-ink sauce, and a grilled red mullet over a quinoa tabbouleh with shrimp and ceviche.

Argentinian food in Montpellier might sound like an unusual mix of cultures, but the chefs at this Empanadas Club have worked wonders in fusing these two cuisines. They have even created a special empanada that intertwines both gastronomies: a Nutella and banana empanada (which is as delicious as it sounds). The place oozes charm and is covered with mementos brought all the way from Argentina. Visitors will sit at one of their long, wooden tables, but it gets busy so reservations are recommended.
