The focus of Mesdames-Messieurs is clearly on the wine. And on organic – and similar – wines in particular. They call themselves “bar à vin dînatoire”, essentially a wine bar with something to eat too, and that is a fair description.
Mesdames-Messieurs Restaurant is not quite a fully fledged restaurant. The wine selection, which is clearly the most important part of the place, is very focused on the Languedoc and you can find many good producers on their list, and also some unknown, worth discovering! We have tried for example Domaine Terrasse d’Elise, cuvée Pradel, which is a 100% cinsault, Vin de Pays de l’Hérault – a rare thing to find a pure cinsaut wine.
Food is uncomplicated and straight forward, well made but don’t expect any thing sophisticated. Definitely an address to go to to explore the wine selection and then also to have something to eat from the decent but limited restaurant menu. Do ask them for advice in choosing the wines, since it is likely that there are many that you are not familiar with.
You find Mesdames Messieurs on a small street behind the Préfecture, not far from the indoor food market.
