“A little gem”
Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

What a find! Small but super and lovely French food. The menu caters for all with fish, meat, game and vegetarian dishes. Try something different and you won't be disappointed and if you like truffle, then you have come to the right place. You have to book in advance and choose for 19:30 or 21:00 sitting - only 90 minutes for dinner but still worth the experience. We definitely recommend and we shall return.

“Excellent restaurant”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

We booked this restaurant based on a recommendation in one of our guide books. The restaurant is a simple room, with tables closely packed, a great atmosphere. The service was very good, with the waitress speaking English to us, even though I could speak French, so my husband could understand. The menu and the food was fantastic, can particularly recommend the snail & chorizo stew for starter. One of the best meals we had in France.

“Like eating in a small kitchen or large elevator, La Cerisale”
Reviewed June 8, 2013

La Cerisale was warmly recommended by our B & B host. We ate there twice with excellent, but small meals both times. Space is at a premium but the head waitress spoke good English and you are likely to rub elbows, literally, with interesting fellow guests. We enjoyed the first white asapargus of the season as a starter. My husband had tripe stew, excellent in their capable hands, and I had wild mushrooms with specially raised "white" pork. Moderately expensive but worth it.

“Small but great”
Reviewed April 15, 2013

La Cerisaie is smaller than your bathroom, but still big enough to accomodate 20 or so guests. Food was excellent and atmosphere friendly, although a bit hectic.

“Petite Restaurant...Grand Flavor....Wonderful Service”
Reviewed March 22, 2013

While researching restaurants in the Montparnasse area I came across Restaurant La Cerisaie. "A young innovative chef", like my son, so thought I would give it a try. Previous reviews were very positive.

First, definitely go.....it was fantastic. Second, make reservations or stand at the door at 7 for an early "seating"....you have one hour. In my one hour I had two "entreés (appetizers), one main course, and two (yes, deux) desserts, 3 (very good at only 5 euros) glasses of wine. Every dish was fantastic....the lamb was incredible, the roquefort ice cream was astonishingly good. Re-booking with a female friend....this has to be shared. No, not cheap, but good value for a wonderful meal.
