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
