The restaurant looks very nice and typical. Once inside the waiters want you to take the most expensive menu. We had the cheapest day menu with a onion soupe, chicken + french fries/pizza. The onion soupe was disgusting and we and even our neighbors didn't finished it. The chicken + french fries were ok but it was a really small plate and definitely not enough. The pizza was eatable but not good. In fact nobody asked us if we had a good lunch. This restaurant is definitely just focused on money and tourists and they don't care at all about quality. The only positiv thing in the restaurant was the pianist - he played very well.

Amidst the highly touristy Montmartre, La Petaudiere is a wonderful restaurant that was a very pleasant surprise. After a visit to Muse'e de Montmarte and Su Lapin Agile, this is a great respite from all the tourists. The staff are delightful, the atmosphere and piano wonderful, the food delicious, and was a great value.

Looking for lunch while sightseeing in Montmartre we ended up here after rejecting the slightly pretentious Clare De La Lune round the corner (pas de vin en pichet). Nothing pretentious about La Petaudiere, just efficient friendly service and good quality food at a reasonable price. We all (4) had the lunchtime set menu, food arrived promptly an was well presented, nothing extraordinary but good value. Staff were friendly and the efficiency never tipped into rudeness, happy to delay cafes to let us finish our wine.

There was a pianist playing which added to the atmosphere.

Not a stop for a leisurely lunch, but if you want a good value lunch in Montmartre I suspect you won’t do much better than this.

Surprisingly superb - friendly & professional service, would defnitely return. Great for an informal lunch at a very affordable price, cheap for Paris! Food is good, atmosphere very relaxed & pleasant, pianist excellent. We had around 20 minute wait for a table, after 5 minutes we were offered kirs on the house - what a lovely gesture! A really great experience & refreshing to experience such wonderful service in such a touristy (but great) part of Paris!

We enjoyed this so much we went again. Very good value set meals (try the french onion soup), and my eldest son loved the snails! Staff were very friendly too.
