Had a delicious and very french lunch (rabbit, glass of wine, coffee €19) in a cozy environment after visiting the catacombs. Lunch was quite plain, perfectly prepared, but i assume the AC should be a notch towards the haute cuisine. Anyway - a traveller tip: if visiting caracombs (wait plus walk) you may feel a need for a little something...... More

Came to this neighborhood restaurant as we were airbnb an apt around the block. Reviews were mixed so we didn't know what to expect. In the end we left really happy, as it was probably our best meal in Paris. But we tend to like simple places with good food, and for that this is a really good: food is... More

No tourists here just locals enjoying, in my opinion some of the finest traditional French food around, sans the pretentiousness that is so common in this city. It is a bare bones bistro (no fancy tablecloths), simple ingredients, well made and presented food, and a small but lovely selection of wines. You can tell that this is a spot that... More

After visiting the Catacombs we came here for lunch on friday around one o' clock. Every filled table seated locals or Francophiles, so we already knew we were in the right spot. We took the lunch menu which got us un plat. My girlfriend had the canard with asparagus / mashed potato., I had the lamb rack with risotto. It... More

We turned up on a Friday night without a reservation and after a short wait were seated. The menu was in French only but the very helpful waitress translated for us. She also recommended a wine which was excellent. The food was really good, the starter, mains and deserts were superb. One word of warning if you are not used... More

It's a small restaurant, but has the best food. Very fresh and special, foie gras is excellent! I like the environment also, small, warm and very typical European decorations, you also can see beautiful plants in the garden through the window. And price is very reasonable price, I paid double but couldn't get such good food in New York. If... More

Went here with some French friends recently. Lovely local restaurant with very good, if somewhat limited menu. Nice atmosphere and good choice of wine. We had set courses as ordered in advance by our French friends but quality of all three courses was excellent. Would love to return and order from the a la carte!

Food was delicious, the atmosphere as well. Dropped in by coincidence as we arrived late to our hotel nearby. Service was very good, informal and personal. The food was very special, this place is highly recommended!

A warm welcome from the charming hostess and helpers at this classic neighbourhood restaurant. Menus in French comme il faut. Classic dishes but with an enlightened angle, eg my starter was beetroot, mature Comte cheese, and a poached egg. A bit rough round the edges : plates not hot enough, bread late, no salt and pepper. But this place is... More

Staying in Montparnasse

Neighbourhood Profile
The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas, brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and historical monuments and treasures. In between lie adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small gardens to match. Just a short metro ride away from the centre of Paris this neighbourhood has something for every hour of the day.
