They don’t take reservation but when you come in they note your name. While waiting you can have a nice coctail or a good glass of wine.

They bring in a new way of running a restaurant, starting with breakfast till dinner non-stop.

The portions are not big but very succulent.

And it’s on walking distance from the montmartreparis appartements.

When you are in the mood to hear good music, have a nice coctail, a great nibble , then La Conserverie is your place to go.

The ambiance is hip, the atmosphere is great fun. It has a warm decoration.

We had a nice evening (we could not reserve anymore because everything was full, but they told us to try at the door, and so we did). The waiters and mixologists are very professional and friendly.

Le Saturne announces itself as a table-cave, which means the food and the wine are equally important.

We went for lunch with friends of us some weeks ago. The food goes for the knew kitchen with forgotten vegetables and new combinations. The wines are very exciting. And for the bread… They serve pain des amies which has a crunchy crust and a great nutty taste.

Skip the dessert but don’t forget to order some of their excellent comté, you won’t regret is.

We did pay 40 Euro for the lunch, food only. Service is very good, they are very friendly and have a lot of humour.

El Fogon

An unexpected taste of Spain-sur-Seine; the idea behind El Fogon, which translates as hearth, was that it would be “modern, convivial and delicious”.

The dining area features padded bronze and purple benches, and wooden tables with cutlery hidden away in a drawer.

The most striking element in the simple décor is the Jamon Iberico, the finest ham in the world, that hangs hoof and all in the dining room, waiting for its curtain call, to appear in paellas or croquettes.

The chef comes from a family with four generation in the restaurant business. He’s not interested in trends. He uses the finest products to create a taste of Spain.
