Convenient for Abasses

Staff were welcoming and attentive. Food was relatively cheap for Paris. Menu was in French and English. Food was of a good standard, not outstanding, but certainly delicious and was served promptly. Would go back anytime.

Spending Christmas in Paris&Montmartre, it was great to visit the Church together with all local residents. It gave a warm feeling.

I have been a customer at St Jean for over 20 years, long before the area became trendy, it was a wonderful brasserie and cafe, I visited last week and was genuinely sad to see how it has deteriorated. It looks ripe for a makeover and I hope that when it comes, it will retain the charm and quality it... More

We were staying opposite to this cafe and tried it on our last day. I paid €6.00 for an awful cappuccino! Our bill came to €25 for 2 coffees scrambled eggs, a croissant and a coca cola. The food and coffee were awful..This does not happen in London! To be avoided!

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. It is the outside seating, facing the charming rue des Abbesses, perfect for people watching and to be seen, at half the cost of Cafe de Flore or the Deux Magots. Rude waiters? Sure,... More

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.
