Changed tables hoping to get served after 15min no service and no menus. Went in and got them myself. Service was terrible! My girlfriend ordered the worst club sandwich ever. I ordered roast chicken that I believe was microwaved. Even the fries were not good. Could get him to come back to pay so i went in and no-one would... More

Le Saint Jean is located in a charmy region of Paris and offers traditional french créps. In general, food is not cheap, as in whole Paris, and not that special. Onion soup is good. If you don't speak french perhaps you will be overlooked.

Perfect to hang out on a great Montmartre street. The many reviews of Saint Jean should make it very clear that it is not about food.

Prices in the average of Montmartre, but expensive if you consider what they offer. Microscopic portions of tasteless food served by rude and hasty waiters. In the end, considering only the great offer of good restaurants in the area, with the same prices and better food, there's no single reason why you should choose to have lunch or dinner here.

The food that I had which was the plate du jour was awful. Overcooked and not fresh. The service was nothing special but not unpleasant.

Went to Monmatre, but all the restaraunts round the pace du tertre were crowded, so walked down a block into this one. The reception was amiable, The waiter recommended a dish that was not on the menu,... More
