Authentic and delicious

A fabulous little unassuming bistro in the Montparnasse district. Everything about it – the atmosphere, the decor, the food – was wonderful.

I suggest to take to chef's surprise menu. 34€ for a lot of small dishes (forgot to count :)). All in a typical french atmosphere. Be there on time because they don't take reservations. If you have to wait, you can always have a glass by the bar.

14th arrondissement is not a tourist area, so when you discover a popular restaurant for the local Parisiens, it should be excellent! And indeed, the receptionist of the Fred Hotel (I recommend) advised me this little gem on a street corner. At 8pm some people are waiting for a table at the bar, but service is excellent so you don't... More

It is hard for people like me, who speak only the basic of French, to communicate with people working in a place like this. What I mean, is that when I asked for a menu in English, I got a rather impolite reply from the owner that i was in Paris (like I didn't know it), which is in France... More

Passed by as recommended from the nearby hotel. From the outside you could se that this was good. Had to wait a little to get a table on a Wednesday evening in November. The staff enjoyed their work. The food was simple, but extremely tasty and well prepared. The menu is written on the blackboard and you choose from there.... More

Last year whilst holidaying in Paris we went here twice. Pleased to say the high standards are still maintained and we visited La Cantine twice again. Fortunately we know the drill that if you get there around 7pm you should get a table. Leave it till 8 and you'll be queuing as reservations are not accepted. The menu, which constantly... More
