This hidden little gem is situated in a nice part of Paris, not so far from the Moulin Rouge. A cosy atmosphere, comparable to a pub. The quality of the food exceeds the quality of such pub by far however. Everything is fresh made. Worth...More

This small restaurant has a simple menu but does what it does very nicely. I didn't need a reservation on an October evening, and no one else appeared to have one, but the restaurant did fill up. Almost tables were occupied by non-French speakers although...More

Excellent meal. Great service. Another reservation fell through. We called and left a message around five. They called us at 6:45 and said to one over. A really great experience.

Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colors, and
styles which changes from one street to another. Ride
the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the
steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the
Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The
church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano
bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers
thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy

Small bistro located in Montmartre, in the Abbesses / Lepic street area, we offer a seasonal cuisine. The presence of available candy jar and a swing will allow you to return to childhood for a moment.
