“Monmatre as the artists would have enjoyed?”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

This restaurant claims to have amongst it's past diners Van Gogh, Renoir and Cezanne, but we only clued into this fact once inside. It's very 'pretty' on the outside and has a lovely terrace where we opted to dine and make the most of the sunshine. I was there with my niece and mum and we were all happy with our meal choices.The French onion soup was yummy but the snails were a tad dry. The mains were a bit pricey (Euro 17-19) but very French, (Canard Orange, Estoufade de Boeuf and menu bistrot) really tasty and the fact that it took them time to get them out to us meant they weren't a microwave job. Service was good and on the day we were there the restaurant was filled with mostly French speaking clientele-always a good sign. The wine selection is extensive, but as it was lunchtime I opted for a glass of Bordeaux, good and very reasonably priced! If the selection of restaurants in Monmatre seems overwhelming and you want something non-tourist trappy and good enough for the crème of the crème of French Impressionists then don't hesitate.

“The perfect tourist trap”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

This time we've been mislead by tripadvisor, the place is on a beautiful corner in montmartre and this could have lead people to overevaluate their meal.
dishes were of a lower average quality, i cook better myself, while price was unacceptable for what we had.
you can eat there, but only if you want to pay three times its value.

“Great location, nice atmosphere”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

Very close to Sacré Coeur - you even can see it when you sit outside - and just opposite the famousl restaurant "Consulate" - this restaurant is a nice place especially to have a drink outside and watch the people around. The staff are friendly but not very fast (even if not many guests are there), and the prices are rather high. I ordered a "Cidre" (a well known drink from France) and I received one from Ireland (tasty, but they should inform the guest before opening the bottle).

“Decent Food, Slow Service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

The food here was tasty, but it was very difficult to flag down a waitress. Granted, there were a few large groups seated in the other room, but many waiters passed by our table while we were waiting to order without so much as a second glance. When the food eventually came, it was tasty. The starter salad had a very nice vinaigrette, and the beef stew was hearty and filling. However, we didn't stay for dessert or coffee because we didn't want to wait for another course. Overall, the food was fine, but we won't be coming back for a return visit.
