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.

The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the
landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that
goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas,
brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and
parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away
from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and
historical monuments and treasures. In between lie
adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small

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.
