We were a group of five, looking for a good breakfast to have on our last day in Paris. On Sunday, we couldn't find a lot of open restaruants that served breakfast, or served them for a reasonable price for what you got. Le Saint Jean had two full breakfast options which were very resonable and filled us up. The... More

The location is absolutely perfect, though it's a tourist trap which can be noticed on the high prices and very bad service. You get an assigned waiter to serve you, and suddenly he has taken a break and you have to wait until he gets back to be able to pay and leave the restaurant. Also a long time to... More

Very expensive with a very bad service and a small variety of food, drinks and coffees.The only positive thing is it's position.

You can't beat the view. It's all about location. I came back to Paris after many years and had drinks with friends. This place has been around for so long and it keeps it's charm. If you want to enjoy Montmartre and you have time to enjoy the the view, I highly recommend!

We had a couple of salads - my daughter's plain "tomato" salad looked better than my more expensive "vegetarian (or Italian?) salad" - both were just okay. But the creme brulée we shared for dessert was really outstanding! Very busy at lunch time with a mix of locals and tourists. Staff was efficient but not too attentive.

We were on a 17 hour layover in Paris and decided to visit the Mont Martre area. After visiting the Basilica, we were hungry and stopped here for a late lunch. We enjoyed a three course meal with pastis outdoors while people watching. It's a busy area do lots to see. Service is decent, they speak English but a little... More

We went to 'Le Saint Jean' restaurant in Montmartre for a late breakfast and the bill was 27 euros. I gave a 50 euros note and the waiter came back to give me 3 euros change. I am actually French but they thought I was a tourist as I was speaking English to my friend. We were quite upset. I... More

The waiters were dismissive and rude, they appeared annoyed that we changed seating and didn't serve us any popcorn like they did for everyone else. I ordered the "limonade/ citronnade pressé" so I was expecting a freshly squeezed refreshing lemon drink or at least a good quality artisan lemonade- and the price would have indicated that it should have been...

Staying in Montmartre

Neighbourhood Profile
Montmartre
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 features shops not intended for young audiences, while residences are scattered to the north and east. The diverse population includes a large part from the Arab-speaking world, Africa, and Turkey. It’s a corner of Paris full of life and dynamism with charms that can’t be found anywhere else.
