Description: Opened since 2002 at the heart of the district Montparnasse, Backstage Cafe became the major restaurant of gaite street , the Mecca of the theatrical culture. In an atmosphere cosy with a magnificent lounge decoration, and an immense glazed facade which can open on a terrace, you can taste a good revisited traditional cooking with fresh products. Backstage Cafe is the good address for a lunch (lunch set menu 16€) or a quality dinner with a selection of owners' wines or simply to taste some cocktails with friends.

Great place, as 2 English people we wern't brave enough to try the many french places around the area but then found this which looked good enough to be able to hellp our limited french. A great choice as the waiter spoke superb English he brought the english menu that was a literal translation from the French menu and funnily made no sense on English but the waiter advised on everything and gave us wine tastings to find the good bottle of wine. So great service and great food. When in France however if you want and English medium rare then order medium otherwise your steak will still have a pulse.

Went there to have a drink and ordered two cocktails for 10 € each. A small beer comes at 8 €. Cocktails were not great at all. Service was "OK", not great. Can't comment on the food but I would not return for drinks only.

It was busy and we waited a little, but it was sooooo worth it!. My steak was yummy and priced well. Very trendy restaurant and it seems that a lot business people come here to eat. Never got treated differently or anything.

There are so many great things that I could say about this place. I absolutely loved Backstage Cafe. The service was excellent which made the experience great. My friend and I stopped through on a cold winter day December 2012. We were greeted immediately, sat at a cozy table in front of a picture window then ultimately enjoyed a tasty lunch. We both order the Backstage Burger which came with fries and the freshest green beans. We also had an assortment of breads and wines. Needless to say I was toasty and full by the end of the lunch. Great place to stop in if you're in this part of Paris.

2 course for 16euro at lunch time. You can choose from the specials or the items on the menu with love hearts next to them.

Well cooked and large portions. The pork and garlic roasted potatoes were delicious.

Many business men and women having lunch.

Modern decor and furniture.

Friendly and attentive staff. Swift service.
