Montmartre.Any restaurants to be recommended?

I am planning to stay in the Montmatre district of Paris..Can anyone recommend any restaurants worth visiting.I will have a limited budget,but would like to try something French,rather than a big chain .....And did you find that this area was safe to walk around at night...Any good/bad experiences of walking at night??

Where exactly are you going to be? Montmartre is a large area. It's probably at least a mile from one side to the other, so you probably aren't going to want to go to a restaurant on the far east side if you are staying near place Clichy, for example.

Hi C,

>Any good/bad experiences of walking at night??<

Montmartre is very, very hilly.

Is there a particular reason why you have chosen this area?

Not sure where in Montmartre you are staying, but this is a nice restaurant near Sacre Coeur.

L'Etten Pente Douce, 26 rue Muller (take the stairs to the east of Sacre Coeur, this place is right at the bottom). It hides under generous branches below the crowds on a classic neighborhood corner, with fine indoor and outdoor seating. Plats, salads, veggie options and good wine.

After fighting with the crowds at place du Tertre and Sacre Coeur, we descended into a quiet peaceful neighborhood where this place is hidden. It was heavenly.

We had a great dinner at Le Restaurant on Rue Veron, right near Rue Lepic and Ave Abbesses -- Rue Lepic is a great walking street with outdoor markets.

We stayed near Sacre Coeur on our last visit. I found it safe with a nice ambiance at night--artists, musicians, etc. We had a romantic and affordable dinner at Chez Claude & Claudine. It was darling and cozy.

94, rue des Martyrs 75018
Tel: 01-46-06-50-73

PS, Although next time I am trying the one that cbleigh recommended above--that sounds fabulous!

I think you will love the neighborhood. Be as cautious as you would anywhere in Paris at night. This area is lively, and you certainly won't be alone.

Les Feuillades: Totally adorable, small, neighborhood-y, very French, and a 22E fixed price, three course menu. Yum!

Les Feuillades
6 rue de la fontaine au but
Paris 75018
Metro: Lamarck-Caulaincourt (right at the base of the stairs as you exit the metro)

For a neighborhood joint, friendly and inexpensive:

Un Zebre a Montmartre
38 rue Lepic
75018 Paris
Serves from 9 a.m.- 2 a.m.

Great big, yummy salads:
Le Relais Gascon
6 rue des Abbesses
75018 Paris

We had a suprisingly nice lunch at Le Vrai Paris, which right around the north corner (to your right) near Rue LePic.

There's a little neighborhood bar/brasserie on Le Rue LePic, the second block on your left hand side if heading down the hill. Can't remember the name, but it felt like it was filled with people from the neighborhood and prices were reasonably cheap.

Le Progres, near Sacre Coeur. Must say that was the best meal I ever ate in Paris last summer. It was a cafe/bistro, with the best lunch special ever including duck, andouillette (sausage), salad, potatoes, wine... Wish I could remember the exact address. I want to go back when I return in mid-March. When are you going?

Eat at Le Petite Poulebot (15 rue Frevise or Freoise) tel: 0144830335. Everything we ordered there was fabulous in the most adorable, intimate setting.
It almost looked too adorable from the outside--I feared it was touristy--but my husband and I (travelers and foodies) agree it was one of our favorite meals ever.
