La cuisine de Monjul c'est aussi le métissage culinaire : des saveurs et des textures venant du monde entier qui bousculent, qui font l'expérience d'un apprentissage gustatif. Cette osmose, cette passion toujours en ébullition, ce gout de faire plaisir sans chichis ni gravité, c'est la cuisine de l'amour...de la gourmandise !

Inventive French cuisine.

Ideally situated in the heart of the Marais, this restaurant is definitely a lovely place to stop by for a dinner with friends or family for its warm atmosphere and friendly welcome from the staff who knows to be both discreet and obliging. Inventive food on a classics basis.

I love this place! Young, creative and talented chef serving French and international classics with a modern touch. The place is not pretentious and very well situated in the Marais area. It is not cheap but the quality/price ratio is very good. Bon apetit!

We ate tasting meal in Monjul and expected a special meal but was dissapointed to get quite pretty dishes that most of them weren't good enough, It seems like the chef perceive himself as an artist and tries to create pretty dishes but in the way he forgets that the taste of the food is what's most important. We got... More

Lovely to experience Monjul after several years and see that the quality of its food and the level of personable service has not changed - it still has wonderfully inventive dishes and happy, friendly staff. A fun evening - we'll be back and continue to recommend Monjul to all our friends who are visiting Paris...

This place offers a great lunch menu. The food is imaginative, delicious and served on beautiful plates. We had a deep-fried mushroom ravioli with a mushroom cream sauce (in a totally different flavour) as a starter, followed by salmon tartare on potatoes with a lentil soup/sauce. Dessert was a pistacchio cake base with peach cream and tonka bean flavoured ice... More

Each of our courses really pushed the boundaries - from snails and filo to tuna tartare with cabbage and noodles. Delicious and light with lively service. We had no trouble understanding our lovely waiter and she had no trouble understanding us - we were able to choose terrific experimental food with no trouble. We asked for advice with our wine...

Was looking forward to this. A tiny jam packed place with good atmosphere, completely let down by the food. Every dish was completely unseasoned and bland. Couldn't finish any dish. Couldn't understand any dish! Foam on everything doesn't equal flare or taste. Nothing blended, I think they are artists not chefs. Melbourne far outweighs this place at even the most... More

We visited monjul last year and had an excellent meal so decided to try it again this year. Once again the food was delicious, my main of smoked fillet of beef was terrific. Our waitress was very helpful and spoke excellent English, she described all the aspects of each course wonderfully. You get 3 courses for €35 which we thought... More

I am interested in creative cuisine, but i find Italian creative kitchens, which tend to build upon tradition, generally more successful than French ones, which seem obsessed with being revolutionary and breaking with tradition. In this respect, Monjul is quite typical. Its "creative" dishes simply don't taste very good and make little sense. For example, what on earth is accomplished... More

Staying in Le Marais

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
