Reserve your table now 

Enjoy a delicious freshly prepared lunch or dinner indoors in the dining room or in fine weather on the paved terrace at Maison de Mallast in the centre of Montolieu, the fascinating village of books and art.

Reserve the table by our elegant Caunes-Minervois fireplace and you will be sitting where President François Mitterand used to dine with the former owners of this historic house, which was once the Château de Mallast or Castrum Mallasti that protected the village from the 6th to the 13th centuries!

Offering French and international dishes, accompanied by the finest wines of the Occitanie region

Our intimate Restaurant at Maison de Mallast serves both visitors to Montolieu and residents of the local villages, indoors from autumn through winter until the beginning April.  We offer a simpler menu outdoors in our beautiful walled garden from spring to summer, subject to fine weather.  From September until spring there will be some outdoors dining in good weather at midday, on the paved upper terrace but the downstairs garden will be closed until summer.

The restaurant remains available for exclusive use by groups of 10-16 for private evening celebrations all year round, subject to availability. Please email us with your enquiries.

Themed evenings & special offers will be announced from time to time.  Make sure we have your email address to be kept up-to-date.
