The food is good, but it's the fun & festive atmosphere that shines here. A Parisian landmark that is as much theater as it is a late-night dining spot. The seafood is always a standout.

We tried ravioli lobster, sea bass risotto, a platter with shrimps, crabs & lobster and an onion soup. We didn’t like anything and it was very expensive! The place is nice but I definately don’t recommend it!!!

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

Hi! Yes, 90 minutes will be enough time for you and I think you also will have time for coffee. Tell the waiter that you have 1,5 hour and they will set up everything for you. I hope that you will have a great dinner... More
