I guess the food here is something you will either love or hate. Not being familiar with the traditional "Truffade" from Auvergne, I was completely unprepared for the massive cheese-and-grease attack which arrived with my duck breast. The truffade had way too much cheese and...More

Just had a stop while waiting to take a bus. The chocolate mousse and espresso were really tasty. Will easily come back!

Went to have an evening meal and were presented with a more than generous and reasonably priced serving. We enjoyed it so much that we went back the following day. Loved the dessert.

No surprise in this place if you like Aligot or Truffade. Huge quantity ensure you to be fed up at the end of your diner.

I had such a wonderful time here and the food was amazing. I went for the sole purpose of trying their aligot, and it did not disappoint. The portion of the food is humongous and it was worth every penny. I highly recommend giving this...More

I visited Le Plomb du Cantal while traveling through Paris on business. I arrived in Montparnasse late after a long drive from Germany, and wanted a quick bite. Le Plomb du Cantal obliged at 2330 in the evening. I had a cheese plate with some...More

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
