Located just across the river from the rose window of the Cathderal of Notre Dame, we were part of a tour group. Multiple waiters took our orders and gave us timely, attentive service. The restaurant served a multi-course meal to over 25 of us. The food was delicious, the service top notch and very importantly, the chocolate cake dessert was... More

This restaurant has a great setting but there are a lot better just nearby. The food was reasonable but nothing that really grabbed you and said, 'this is good food'. The service was quite good but we just beat a large tour bus group in there so I guess we were lucky to beat them. The menu is quite extensive... More

We were with a large group of 2 busses. They have a larger patio so they can accomodate a large group. It's covered in case of bad weather. The food was served in a timely manner & was good. We walked there from Notre Dame. Was a quaint area walking along the vendors along The Seine. I would go back... More

My husband and I sat street-side at this lovely cafe for lunch on the day of our elopement. It was freezing, but thankfully, we could sit outside to admire the front-row view of Nôtre Dame because of the heating lamps just above the tables. The staff was super friendly, and we enjoyed the food very much. I was sorry to... More

We had an early dinner in this restaurant. It is true that it is very expensive for what you get (menu of 15,5€: a small portion of pasta and ice cream, for everything else you have to pay extra). But you have to pay this for the location and the view of Notre Dame. The service was quick and friendly,... More

.....unfortunately this was a first and a huge disappointment. My first choice of lunch in the area was Les Degres de Notre Dame but the restaurant was not in operation when I arrived. Oh well !! My second choice was La Rose de France in Place Dauphin but they do not appear to have the 16 euro lunch menu that... More

Food was bad, the service was good, our servers really tried. My problem with Le Montebello is the price doubled when I got my check. The drink prices doubled.. there were add ons for when I got the beef, and other add on charges they couldn't explain. So a mediocre meal that should have cost 60 Euros ended up costing... More

Nicely placed near Notre Dame the restaurant has a really nice out door eating area. The waiters were very friendly . However the portion size isn't large for what you pay. The wine is very expensive. Four of our party had the beef bourguignon and unfortunately all suffered upset stomachs the following day. Just a warning too if you need... More

If you're prepared to pay top money for a beautiful view and terrible food, this is the place to go. We ordered an entrée size salad with goat cheese. For the price of 14 euros any other restaurant in Paris would have given us a plentiful serving of salad and half a melted goat cheese... but this one only gave... More

Food grossly over seasoned (too much salt) and drenched in sauces. None of the 4 of us could stomache our meals. Dont go, staff was nice enough.
