The little big restaurant

We bumped into this small restaurant, a bit hidden near the Tour de Montparnasse, and as it looked interesting, we booked a table for the evening. Two seatings - one at 19.00 and the other one at 21.00 - a way of making sure there are more people at the table every evening and they do not linger... read more

Quite simply one of the best meals I've ever had. Beautifully presented in a cosy restaurant that oozes warmth and care. It's a little cramped but don't let that deter you! This place truly is a slice of Paris not to be missed. Excellent service from our waitress (who served the whole restaurant by herself) and even offered to translate... More

For crowds, sleaze, debris and disorder, the Paris quarter of Montparnasse ranks right down there with the Times Square of a decade ago. But in the thick of it, in the shadow of a 59-floor grotesquerie known as the Montparnasse Tower, is a slot in a wall along Boulevard Edger-Quinet that serves cuisine as inspired as the city's most celebrated....

初めてここを訪れたのは10年ほどになりますが、今に至るまで時間が許せば夕食に訪れています。小さな店なので予約が多くの場合必要です。 以前はフォアグラやカモのローストといった料理を選ぶことが多かったのですが、前回はオニオンスープ、カスレをお願いしました。どちらも重すぎず、かといって洗練されすぎもせず、まだまだ寒さが残る3月にはうれしい、温まる料理でした。サービスも10年前から変わらず、アットホームです。 ワインはボトルの他、グラスでも注文可。

Nice surprise. No Parisian arrogance here. From the car park to the hotel we walked by this restaurant that seats approx. 22 persons. We were lucky because without reservation we were allowed in to take the table of a couple that canceled. I suggest though to make a reservation. They appear to also have special "fast" service to cater for... More

Restaurant was close to our hotel. It has two seatings. 19:00/19:30 and 20:30 We were lucky to get seats because it was full. Most are locals and regulars. Food is great. Seems expensive because the portions are small, they don't have any formule or prix fix menus and with mains you don't get any side dishes. These cost extras, Good... More

While making a stop of 2 days in Paris I decided to make the most out of it and La Cerisaie was definitely a nice part of it. It is a small and cozy restaurant in Montparnasse. The service, the presentation and quality of the food is top notch, but it is a little pricey (what in Paris isn't?). So... More

We continue coming back to this place despite its somewhat cramped quarters because the food is so good. Our waitress serves the 10-12 tables very efficiently. My cassoulet was great, and the roquefort ice cream was quite tasty. This is a good place to dine.

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

Neighborhood Profile
Montparnasse
The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas, brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and historical monuments and treasures. In between lie adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small gardens to match. Just a short metro ride away from the center of Paris this neighborhood has something for every hour of the day.
