Superb service and a really local vibe made this restaurant very special for us. There wasnt a tourist in sight and everyone was under 40 yet it was a real restaurant not a hangout for kids. We had an entree and 2 mains to share with a couple of glasses of wine and at €55 we were hsppy with the bill We really enjoyed the excellent scorpion fish bourride and the mushroom pasta was good too The decor is old world railway station Gorgeous

We stayed in a flat just across the bistro and started our day with a nice cup of coffee in the bistro. Very friendly and nice staff, great coffee and not expensive. Lovely quiet place. Loved it there.

Great beef and awesome parmesan salads. The prices fall in line with Paris prices but the food is way better than average. Friendly and lively staff. Sits on a busy intersection so is a great place to people watch.

We went here purposely when we were in Paris because a scene from the Quentin Tarantino film "Inglourious Basterds" was shot here. I don't think many people know that, or maybe they don't care...haha. However, my husband and I are huge film nerds and figured since we were already in the area we might as well go and see it.

It was very neat for us to be somewhere that was featured in a movie. The waiter most likely heard us talking about the film but didn't seem phased by it. He was very pleasant and attentive. We each had a chocolat chaud to drink - so tasty! We didn't have anything to eat but I am sure the food would be great also. The atmosphere is very cute and Parisian!

Check it out if you are in the area and looking for a sweet spot to stop in at, or are a big film geek like me!!

In our quest to experience the historic bistros of Paris, we traveled to Montmartre and found La Renaissance. For us this proved to be a perfect destination: authentic in period detail (stained glass, frosted glass, dark woods, menu on a blackboard) with a waitress tres’ joli and great food: Turenne, again oeuf cocotte, lapin, pave du saumon, Compari, wine, and such people-watching! A pumpkin masquerading as a dress was funny to observe along with the general hustle-and-bustle of a neighborhood restaurant. Just what was hoped for a birthday celebration. Well worth the trip off the beaten path to find such good food and such neighborhood authenticity.
