“Nice atmosphere, good food”
Reviewed 29 March 2013

Montparnasse has a nice touch to it - it has two distinct parts that serve different food. One side of the restaurant is Italian and the other one is French food. Make sure you sit on your preferred side ;-) otherwise you'll stay hungry. I've been there several times, and I always sit on the French side. I've tried many dishes, and the food has always been delicious. Service is efficient, but I don't like how the manager (or owner) is 'extremely' friendly - it looks very superficial and fake, though I might be wrong and she might be genuine. Make sure you call and book in advance, as the place gets busy!

“Excellent venue”
Reviewed 8 January 2013 via mobile


I was taken to Montparnasse for a business dinner. The restaurant can offer Italian and French menus and we ate on the French side. I was impressed with the service which was efficient granted that they were not exceptionally busy. The menu was quite extensive and the food excellent.

Would certainly recommend the venue to anyone.

“Expect the unexpected”
Reviewed 9 October 2012 via mobile

I was pleasantly surprised by the Montparnasse. From the outside it does not reflect what you get inside.

What I did like:

- the service, very kind and helpful. Always a smile that makes you feel confortable,
- food, large choice, fresh ingredients and tasty, nothing revolutionary though
- sitting area is good
- restaurant and toilets are clean

I personally like less the style, but that's a question of taste.

“Great food and location in the heart of Zone 4”
Reviewed 4 September 2012

Really impressive as there is an Italian and French side of the restaurant.

Gives the restaurant good return factor. Dinner was delicious both times I went.

Highly recommended (little bit expensive) but well worth it.
