We booked because we liked the look of the menu. On holiday I go to a restaurant to enjoy the experience and pass a pleasant evening and enjoy good food. This do not happen here. An American couple squashed beside us said they had never seen such a crowded restaurant. They counted 25 people inside a very small room. Most... More

My husband and I found this restaurant through TA and could not have been happier. We asked our hotel concierge to make a booking and realize that we would have been turned away without this. We enjoyed a bream pâté win truffles, a pork fillet and a goose main, followed by a shared raspberry crumble. The maître marched our courses... More

Small lively restaurant that we could not get into until 10:00 pm or 2200. Folks truly enjoyed food here. Lingered and visited and enjoyed every morsel. Tripe, duck, pigs head, foie gras, snails are some menu items. I had milk lamb buddy had tripe. Fish bisque, and very good deserts of rhubarb and berry cream compote and a great warm... More

A most pleasant surprise in a spot that is not on the typical tourist or business path. I found it while looking for a hotel near Gare Montparnasse. The chef (Cyril Lalanne) and his wife are making the most of a tiny store front on Blvd. Edgar Quinet. If this restaurant were in Los Angeles or San Francisco there would... More

One of the best meals I have ever had in Paris, maybe in the world! This place is small, but very efficient. The staff were very friendly and the food is excellent! Every thing is fresh and prepared very well. I highly recommend this place. You will need a reservation.

A very small restaurant - with exceptionally good food. Wonderful atmosphere and waiters providing great hospitality. It may have been the best meal I ever have had - and trust me, I have tried some pretty good restaurants. I cannot recommend it enough

Discovered "La Cerisaie" by chance upon wandering near Montparnasse. Good Southwest French food can be quite nice. Now in USA, I love small places 11 tables like La Cerisaie. Had Snails Cassoulet, then the Black Cochon and then decided to go for special with Blue Cheese Ice Cream, Prunes and red fruits. The desert was to die for, loved it:... More

I have been to La Cerisaie a few times, and I can say that the things the Chef can do with trouffles is amazing. Your experience will begin once you leave the subway and feel the vibrant neighborhood. A short walk will take you to the entrance of a very small, quaint, neighborhood restaurant. I have always had the same... More

We have now eaten here three times and the food has been fantastic each time. From a small kitchen, one person manages to keep us all happy with marvellous south-western French food. A lot of game: today we had pheasant pie, venison and partridge and all were superb, as were the desserts. The quantities are correct for such rich food... More

This place is one of our favorites. Cecile serves 11 tables with efficiency, but what comes out of the kitchen is just short of fantastic. We've had three or four meals here and will go back again, and again.
