Mare Monte has a 18 euro 3-course menu that is an excellent value in Paris. This is a family restaurant run by an old couple--lady (french) works in the dining room and man (Greek) works in the kitchen. The food is Greek-French, simple but very fresh salad and grilled fish (Bar), very tasty, tender and fresh. Dessert is crepe. Nothing fancy, but always fresh. Excellent value as a neighborhood eatery. Make sure to make reservation.

This had to be the blandest meal we have had since we arrived in Europe 6 months ago! Lovely place and nice service, but the chicken and fish were tasteless. Tasted like frozen and then microwaved...maybe not, but could have been. This is not the place to go for "French" food. True, €18 for set menu is low for Paris, but in this case, I didn't get what I paid for.
This is the first negative review I have written in ages.

Excellent and tasty meal, price was quite reasonable.

The restaurant gives you the feeling that you are at home, very friendly.
The food style is Cyprus which the owners are from there.

It was an excellent day end with that wonderful dinner.

Please update the address : "19 avenue Felix Faure, Parice, France"

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.
