We dropped into this little restaurant after a visit to the Cathedral de Notre Dame. There were a lot of people around and we wanted to walk about 200 feet farther to get away from the crowd. Our visit was on a Wednesday around noon. This establishment is medium priced. We were very happy with the food and the staff... More

Had lunch by Notre dam. This was just an average lunch. I think you could do better. I had tuna fish on baguette. It was very bland. My review is just as bland. I cannot get excited about this place.

We were a group of five and ordered the main course with dessert combo for 14,90€. The bread that we thought came with the pasta costs 2€ extra and the drinks were really expensive - 5€ for a Coca Cola. Well... the chicken and fries dish was dry meat with half cooked fries. Not too happy. But I guess that's... More

Don't go there for the food!! The price you pay is not for the quality you get in your plate! My wife booked it for the location in front of Notre Dame but unfortunately we have been very disapointed of all the food we've got! Rather getting a sandwich than going there.. Soupe à l'oignon => so salty, lot of... More

We tried many restaurants in the area, and the Montebello was a very decent place, service is good, and food is not pricey! We felt we did not fall in a tourist trap this time! Great view on Notre Dame! Not disappointed this time!!

We ate dinner here in our first night in Paris. We walked from where the bus dropped us off where we can see Notre Dame Cathedral along the way. This restaurant is very nice, wine was at the table. You have a choice of red or white. Food was delicious. We ate escargot here and it was delicious! All the... More

I ate lunch here -- solo-- a year ago around Christmas on my last day in Paris. I ordered from the "formule" (set menu) and it was excellent, at a good price. I had a good waiter who tolerated my mediocre French. The meal was excellent (5 stars) and I was looking forward to returning again this Christmas, which i... More

We have been there four times over last five years. Always find its staff very friendly and the restaurant has a nice selection of food. We are particularly fond of the onion soup , which is great. Recommend it when you are visiting Paris
