The food is perfectly cooked and seasoned, and definitely affordable (both the Noix de Saint-Jacques and Magret de canard for 13 euros each) and the desserts, which I am not usually a fan of generally, are really great. I had the dessert with white chocolate and raspberries, very light and not too sweet!

My gf and i dined there last evening with friends from Paris and they insisted that we have the oeuf cocotte au foie gras a starter...a soft boiled egg combined with foie gras and creme fraiche servec in a ramekin. Served with mouillettes (slices of toasted bread which can be translated into English as dunkers) this dish was a real treat to both the palate and the eyes.

The place is tiny with many half a dozen tables inside and another half dozen on the sidewalk. The wait staff is young and friendly and the menu is quite extensive for such a small place. They have a whole section dedicated to pain poilane, open faced sandwiches.

Its located in Montmartre therefore you can take a lovely after dinner stroll and take in the ambience of the neighborhood.

I've lived in Montmartre for over a year now and this is honestly one of the best restaurants I've encountered in the area (and maybe even all of Paris), particularly given the quality to cost ratio. It's really a little gem tucked away on a street not far from the Sacre Coeur. Whenever I get visitors, I almost always bring them by Le Jardin d'en Face (or its sister restaurant just across the street, Le Potager, which shares the same menu), and everyone always walks away delighted. I've enjoyed everything I've tried on the menu, particularly the scallops (sauce varies, but usually something creamy) and the fish special (usually a whole grilled fish). My partner usually gets the rum steak and says it's excellent. The desserts are excellent - my favorite is the berry crumble. A main dish will set you back only 14-15 euros, which is a bargain for the neighborhood. The place is packed Thursday-Saturday nights, and even other days of the week, so it's best to make a reservation. One thing to note is that the restaurant is tiny, so you will most likely be a bit crammed. There's usually 1-2 waiters to service the entire place, so at times the wait to take the order can be lengthy & the servers clearly seem to be in a rush, but the food makes it worthwhile.

The place is great. A tiny cozy room of stone with terrific food. I had the the tartine to start and scallops as my main dish. The shellfish were bathed in a nice herbed cream sauce that was so complex. Wonderful night.
