Read about this restaurant in multiple food magazine and blog articles. It's cozy inside, seats along the wall have a view of the city at night, and the food and staff are fantastic. I had foie gras, steak, and a cheese plate. All of it was wonderful. The cheese plate in particular was phenomenal and it was exactly the delicious... More

Don't let the size of this restaurant fool you. What it lacks in square footage is made up by the preparation and quality of the food, the ambience and the friendliness of the owner. We had the lamb chops; done to our liking. It was a rainy night, so the hot squash soup was perfect.

Went to Paris in a group of 11 and someone I know who lived for a while there recommended this place. When we arrived we found out that it had recently changed hands but the new owner was delightful. A fiery little mademoiselle who has lived in the UK in Bolton who spoke excellent English. The menu is simple yet... More

Near Sacre Couer, a fabulous, interesting restaurant with an engaging owner. Amazing what food can be created in a small place by a small staff. Also helpful, knowledgeable suggestions for wine. Beautiful view out the back window.

After spending 8 days in Paris trying different restaurant options at different "arrondissements", I can say how difficult is for any restaurant to stand out from the rest. We had one of our best dinners in Paris here. Food was great and service extraordinary! It is located very close Sacre Couere, so the view of Paris is also great.

Wonderful dinner. Open kitchen so the sounds and smells previewed our meal. Great fish soup and panfried pollock were just right. My wife's lamb with leeks was perfect. Get away from the crowds and enjoy a great neighborhood spot.

My fiancé and I, with another couple stumbled upon Le Grande 8 by chance when seeking some lunch. The restaurant was empty, but the patron was friendly and welcoming. We had a fantastic set of starters and main courses and the desert was simple but superb. The owner was humorous and attentive and the whole occasion was fantastic. The food... More

The food was excellent. Perfect Sunday service, laid back and wonderfully knowledgeable owner who also waited our table. We had a lovely afternoon and the view is excellent. Highly recommended and not the tourist trap we were expecting. Have recommended for my Parisian friends to visit and experience the tasty food.

This restaurant received an average of 4.5 stars on Trip Advisor and we wondered why. This restaurant was a huge disappointment on every level. We had an early reservation, yet we were seated in the back behind a pillar. There is absolutely nothing warm and cozy about this restaurant. The staff were less than friendly, dressed like street people and... More

Staying in Montmartre

Neighbourhood Profile
Montmartre is a bustling mix of cultures, colours, and styles which changes from one street to another. Ride the funicular (or, for a real workout, climb the steps) to the sublime Sacré-Coeur (Basilica of the Sacred Heart) with its inspiring view of the city. The church is surrounded by provincial streets and piano bars where tourists, artists, and street entertainers thrive. At the foot of the hill, Boulevard de Clichy features shops not intended for young audiences, while residences are scattered to the north and east. The diverse population includes a large part from the Arab-speaking world, Africa, and Turkey. It’s a corner of Paris full of life and dynamism with charms that can’t be found anywhere else.
