Estimated Time

Montmartre (French pronunciation: ​[mɔ̃.maʁtʁ]) is a large hill in Paris's 18th arrondissement. It is 130 m (430 ft) high and gives its name to the surrounding district, part of the Right Bank in the northern section of the city. The historic district established by the City of Paris in 1995 is bordered by rue Caulaincourt and rue Custine on the north, rue de Clignancourt on the east, and boulevard de Clichy and boulevard de Rochechouart to the south, containing 60 ha (150 acres). Montmartre is primarily known for its artistic history, the white-domed Basilica of the Sacré-Cœur on its summit, and as a nightclub district. The other, older, church on the hill is Saint Pierre de Montmartre, which claims to be the location at which the Jesuit order of priests was founded. Near the end of the 19th century and at the beginning of the twentieth, during the Belle Époque, many artists had studios or worked in or around Montmartre, including Amedeo Modigliani, Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Suzanne Valadon, Piet Mondrian, Pablo Picasso, Camille Pissarro, and Vincent van Gogh. Montmartre is also the setting for several hit films. This site is served by metro, with line 2 stations at Anvers, Pigalle, and Blanche, and line 12 stations at Pigalle, Abbesses, Lamarck - Caulaincourt, and Jules Joffrin.

    We came here because the reviews. Most other places were 3 star and under in the area. It was very expensive for what we received. The French onion soup is fantastic, and worth the stop, even though it's 10 euros for a small cup size. Drinks are very expensive. Not a very large menu. Meats are duck, lamb and frog legs and rump steak. Nice atmosphere. But I wouldn't go back unless I wanted to introduce someone to French onion soup, until I find a place that has a larger bowl for 10 euro.

    Very nice, cozy and classic place. The staff are friendly and the food is very good compared to its price. View is amazing. I had turkey breast. The sauce was tasty and turkey was delicious. Definitely would go there again.

    It might be the only place in the area which is not a tourist trap. The Service was very friendly. We had a Burger (medium-rare, spot-on) with awesome fries and an omlet and enjoyed it a lot. The prices are $$, but ok for Montmartre.

    A historic little restaurant in Montmartre at the top of the hill before you enter the cobbled streets to the painters. We had lunch, the food was fine and the service was equally good. A very touristic spot, little high prices..

    My daughter and I were delighted with the cozy atmosphere and pleasant staff while enjoying delicious lunches of Croque Madame and Croque Monsieur in a beautiful setting!
