My daughter and I came for dinner and had so much fun. We ended up having a lively dinner with the 3 other pairs of people at our end of the tables. The cheese fondue was delicious, the staff friendly and welcoming, and the atmosphere was festive.

We came here on our honeymoon 8 years ago because a relative had suggested it and had such a wonderful time that we had to do it again. The atmosphere, the food, the drinks, everything about this little restaurant is special. If you love making new friends and trying something new, this is the place for you. We love it... More

I first came here in 2001 and last in 2006, the place has changed little since then. The menu is the same as is the fun atmosphere. Very easy to get cozy with the other diners. Just be careful not to put back too many bottles of the house wine...

You get two choices - meet or cheese, and red or white! This small fondue place close to Montmartre and Sacre Coeur is worth a visit for the atmosphere. We tried the cheese fondue with red wine and it was good, but the place is much more than the food, and that is why this small place is worth a... More

Don't go to this place for the food but for the fun! The service was extremely nice and the ambiance was lively. The beef Bourgogne was decent as well as the red wine. The best was their floating island dessert!

This resturante is an extraordinary experience! The food and service is very very good. You have to jump over the table to be able to sit down which is fun! Very cheap price for the quality of the food and the service. Highly recommended!

This place gets mixed reviews -- and I can see why. It really is "as advertised" -- a Fondue restaurant where you get no choices, drink wine from baby bottles, and are squeezed into a cafe that should fit 20, but seats 40! BUT** If you accept all of that as part of the experience, and the fact that you... More

They offer just two differents Menus, both based on the tipical Fondue, Bourguignonne and Savoyarde. But, trust me, worth all the time and money ( 22 Euros each) you're going to spend in there. Definitely unmissable in the borough of the wonderfull Montmartre.

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.
