I may have underestimated the restaurant by the decor (or lack of it), but I must say the food and the service was impeccable.

We were delighted by this little find, thanks to TripAdvisor. It was a one-man and one-chef show in there. Our waiter was superb: he was friendly, attentive, walked us through the whole menu in English, and kindly offered to make me his specialty non-alcoholic cocktail...More

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
