First of all, if you're American, you've got to understand that the French have nice, long, leisurely meals. That being said, you will not have a server hovering over you asking if "everything is OK" every 2 minutes. If this is what you want then...More

We were staying round the corner in a hotel and had a pleasant drive and decent dinner. Nothing fancy, but good for what it is. Place does a happy hour and the bar was pretty busy, so a nice buzz.

The receptionist was right when he told us to go there. The meal came quickly. It was not the best quality but regarding to the price I would recommend this place.

Located near the Arc de Triomphe you would expect the food to be expensive and average. This was one of the best meals we had in Paris. The staff couldn't have been nicer. Their deserts were exceptional.

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
