Superb!

Somehow the 4 of us managed to get a table here without a reservation (it was on a Monday and a but early for dinner). The day was brutally hot, and the place is so cramped that there is no room for a fan. There was one in the kitchen. There was only one waitress for the full house. She... read more

We have been coming to La Cerisaie for many years, whenever we are staying in Paris, and it has never let us down. Yes, it is tiny and the tables are close together and there are two sittings, but the food is wonderful and the service is great. We always phone up to make a reservation some weeks before we...

For approximately 20 fortunate weekday diners, La Cerisaie presents fresh but consistent approaches to excellent Southwestern classics in an intimate and relaxed setting at fair prices. Merely steps from the Montparnasse train station, two young proprietors are turning out mouthwatering renditions of fois gras, cassoulet, lamb, fish, et. al. The asperagus starter in a lite leamon sauce was a pleasant... More

What these two ladies can do in such a small space is a tribute to their professionalism.. What the chef can do with food is the cherry on the cake. I normally cannot stand being in small spaces but the food and the welcome here are second to none. Great food in nice atmosphere.

We made reservations at Le Cerisaie on the urging of a friend of my traveling companion. The reservation was for 7:30 PM (we were not told of a 2 seating time policy for 7 PM or 9 PM). The place is crowded and small, but we knew that going in and it has a certain charm. The service, mostly by... 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

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 (well, the... 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.
