Paris Travel Planner   Montmartre Restaurants, Paris
The Montmartre area offers a large variety of restaurants, from traditional French to a variety of ethnic choices.




The heart of Montmartre is the Place du Tertre, the main square, which is encircled by restaurants and cafés. Catering largely to tourists, these bustling restaurants offer everything from sandwiches to complete meals.

You'll find plenty of traditional French foods here, and a wide range of prices. As might be expected, you'll pay a premium to eat right around the Place du Tertre.

If you want to get away from the crowds a bit (but not too much!), head down the hill to Rue des Abbesses, which offers a variety of restaurants and traiteurs providing prepared foods. The street is lined with cafés and restaurants where you can get a drink or a meal.

Le Vrai Paris, Montmartre
Is it really Le Vrai Paris (the real Paris)?
A Rue des Abesses restaurant likes to think so.

Wandering on the Montmartre Hill, I came across Le Relais de la Butte, which provided me a welcome place to rest my feet, have a drink, and enjoy a lovely view. With its large terrace it's a popular stopping point.

Further down, off the Montmartre hill and in the Pigalle area are a variety of informal neighborhood restaurants. We enjoyed Turkish food from one small restaurant, and there were a number of other local spots to try. Le Gourmet, on the rue de Bruxelles, provided us with a lovely and reasonably priced dinner once on our arrival day in Paris.
