My husband and I have been going to this restaurant for many years since it opened. It was our absolutely favourite local restaurant. We lived close to it for 7 years until we returned to the UK. We were back in Paris and visited Mare Monte once more. The welcome by Madame and Monsieur in charge was as warm as ever despite the 2 year gap. It is small, and so booking is essential. I was lucky to get a table for 2 at lunchtime on a Tuesday. It filled up completely and people were turned away.
The food is fresh, of outstanding flavour, Our favourite is the grilled sea bass. Simply cooked and melt in the mouth. To accompany this we could have 'frites, salade ou haricots verts'. 'Simple' is the watchword for this gem of a restaurant. Whether it is a starter of taramasalata or delicious mozzarella and tomatoes, one of the main courses, grilled fish, chicken brochette or a steak, followed by a crepe or homemade greek yogurt with amazing honey, this small family owned restaurant will not disappoint. We always loved eating there, and going back after a break, we wish we could find such a restaurant near us in the UK.

Almost all others were locals. Delicious food, charming, intimate. Especially liked chicken brochettes. Also liked nutella crepe for dessert. Good value, down to earth owners.

The food tasted so good, we ended up eating lunch the very next day at the same restaurant. Everything was fresh and very well cooked. I recommend to everyone. The price for this kind of food, is ridiculously low. just 17 euros!

It was recommended to us by our landlord. We tried it and we loved it. The menu was 17 euros for a starter, main course and dessert. We also had half a bottle of wine for 10 euros. All food was great and they spoke a little English. Very friendly staff. The only cons is that you are very close to the other tables, so if you like your personal space, this is not the place. It seemed like a mom and pop restaurant. Just a bit off the tourist track.
