Description: This bistro is a concept-restaurant that honors French cooking and hospitality with an all-inclusive 3 courses, house aperitif, half bottle of wine each and coffee for ���36 per person. Bistro Melrose restaurant in Paris at the foot of Montmartre has all the bustling energy of the Place de Clichy. This small, intimate bistro with its traditional decor of red velvet banquettes and draperies, brass chandeliers, pretty cupolas, white linened-tables with nosegays of fresh flowers is a comfortable haven in a busy part of the capital. Some fans cross town to get here. The seasonally changing menu offers both traditional French cuisine like roast rack of lamb with rosemary jus and gratin potatoes and more innovative dishes like sizzling gambas flavoured with citronella with fresh Tagliatelli. Excellent service and a pretty terrace for sunny days.

“Nice bistro in Montmartre”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012

We were taken to this bistro by dear French friends and while we enjoyed the bistro itself and the food and wine were excellent, unfortunately there was a very large table of Irish soccer louts who proceeded to yell and carry on and make it almost impossible to carry on a conversation for anyone there. I realize that it is very difficult for a restaurant to control the drunken and obnoxious behaviour of other diners but I do wonder at a restaurant accepting a large group as this. They definitely put a damper on the evening for everyone in the restaurant and our friends were very upset about it. So, as long as you make sure there aren't any large groups booked, you will have a very good meal in a warm and very French bistro!

“A much appreciated gesture”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2012

We called in for what we hoped would be a quick lunch. The place was very busy, not a bad sign. However, it was soon obvious that the staffing levels were not right for the numbers! (Had someone not turned up?) The few staff were doing their best and constantly on the move. I wanted their menu, my family just a main course each. To cut a long story short, there was not time for me to have a dessert from my menu nor for coffees. When the bill arrived, we noticed that they had charged for drinks and the main courses - and not my 2/3 of the menu. I had noticed the manager talking to the waiter before they ran the bill through their till. Although the food was not memorable, but reasonable for what we expected from this type restaurant, this gesture left me feeling very posititve about the Melrose.

“One of the finest French Restaurants you should not miss.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 25, 2012

This petit restaurant along Place De Clichy is not easy to be missed. Despite it's small dining area, the interior decoration actually made it look rather spacious.

Food is really good. The lamb is spectacular. Dessert, go for classic Creme Brule and if you want something stronger, the Crepe.

“Food poisoning”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2012

Went on our last night in Paris for a fancy dinner on Sunday 17 th June and it seemed lovely at the time but a few hours later my husband became very unwell with vomiting and the other! Not good .... We narrowed it down to two possible suspects .... Prawns or whipped cream! Not the most romantic way to end your trip.

“Le Bistro Melrose welcomed us to Paris”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2012

My husband promised he would take me to Paris, and this year it happened! Our first day in Paris, we ate at this restaurant. We were greeted with a glass of champagne. The atmosphere was charmingly French. The dinner was perfect in every respect. From this moment on, I fell in love with Paris! We stayed in Paris for several days and went back to this restaurant to celebrate our friend's birthday. BTW, the creme brulle is to die for!
