A lovely place for lunch. The menu-du-jour is always a good idea as is the café gourmand. The service is friendly and efficient. The place has a certain ambiance which is particularly appealing in rainy days. It is cosy and very pleasant to be at.

Had eaten here three years ago and it was wonderful. Back to Paris again and thought we could revisit pleasant memories; wrong. It was poor in so many ways, overcooked duck with an overpowering sauce, paper thin veal picatta with bland sauce. Acceptable service and okay desserts that must have been brought in from a patisserie. Just don't bother going... More

Our Parisian friend who lives in the local area recommended the little cafe after our visit in Montmartre. Excellent service, very friendly staff who were able to advise us for food/wine, we loved all the dishes - veal, 2 fish dishes, vegetarian dish and burger. Fantastic dining experience. Looks like they have more local clientele & we really enjoyed the... More

We were recommended Le Cafe qui parle by the owner of another restaurant further up the road which was full. Le Cafe qui Parle had a busy traditional menu and good wine list. The duck was excellent and the beef ribs too.

The cafe is located only two blocks north of the Mercure Montmartre hotel, and we stumbled upon it while rambling about the area. The sidewalk cafe is great for watching neighborhood residents strolling by as you unwind at the end of the day. Everything we ordered was excellent and fairly priced for the high quality. Most entrees were around 20... More

We just popped in and asked for a table and they gave us a choice of tables to pick from and served with a big smile. The staff was attentive in every way, they tried very hard to speak as much english as they could, so we try to speak the bits of French as we know and ending up... More

Had a really nice Saturday brunch here. Seemed a little pricey at first, but the brunch includes a big plate of very good quality cold cuts and cheese for each person, as well as a modest sized but very well-stocked buffet. Delicious and very filling!

Came here as part of a 16-person GoAhead tour group "final evening in Paris" dinner. We all fit inside around 3 tables, and despite our large group (and all the other dinners) we had reasonable service and great food (and wine, of course). Several of us had the fillet of salmon, several had beef ribs with baked potatoes, both prepared... More

Decided to go here because it was near our hotel (ibis Montmartre) and I'm so glad we did. We had the 10 euro breakfast which included coffee, orange juice, croissant, half a baguette, and a serving of quiche and green salad. It was a nice "last breakfast" in Paris. Great deal, very filling and delicious breakfast. Best of all, we... More

Staying in Montmartre

Neighborhood Profile
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 features shops not intended for young audiences, while residences are scattered to the north and east. The diverse population includes a large part from the Arab-speaking world, Africa, and Turkey. It’s a corner of Paris full of life and dynamism with charms that can’t be found anywhere else.
