We stopped in for an early dinner (by Parisian standards) after a long day of touring. We both opted for variations of their Croque-Monsieur and some wine. The sandwiches tasted delicious and the staff helped out with our basic French phrases. Reasonably priced.

Enjoyed the lunch with picon sitting outside enjoying people watching. The food was good and so was the service.

Lovely spot to sit outside on a summer evening and watch the people drift by. Sadly though the food was disappointing - pretty standard tourist fare.

Called by to this popular spot for a drink and a snack. Food and drink ok - service was curt, miserable and staff were uninterested. More bothered about serving new customers than dealing with those already in the restaurant.

Terrible service- the waiters took 10 mins to even acknowledge us, then another 10 to bring the menus. Food did arrive quickly but was only average quality. I certainly wouldn't bother going back

What an awesome atmosphere and lip smacking simple food. I had a perfectly cooked omelette with chips and salad and hubby had a croque monsieur- excellent service!!

We were a group of five, looking for a good breakfast to have on our last day in Paris. On Sunday, we couldn't find a lot of open restaruants that served breakfast, or served them for a reasonable price for what you got. Le Saint...More

Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colours, and
styles which changes from one street to another. Ride
the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the
steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the
Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The
church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano
bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers
thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy
