This restaurant is at Place du Tertre, very close to the Sacre Coeur. It is possible to sit both in- and outdoors. It's a busy place which means that it can seem a bit chaotic. However, service is fast and food is okay. All in...More

We went back to Paris during Good Friday and we wanted to visit Sacre Coeur, but being good Friday, there was an activity and they were not letting people in so we decided to have a late lunch first while waiting. We decided to go...More

The food is good, but a bit overpriced. It is in a very touristy area, so the price comes with the territory. The seafood salad and the beef Carpaccio were very good.

We've been to Paris many times, and never eaten in this restaurant which we had often passed by. It is a well established traditional French bistro, which is really living on its location. The food is only average, my friends were happy with their meals,...More

The service was great and my croque monsieur was nice, but drinks here are incredibly pricey which is hardly surprising given the location.

After a fearsome and tiring walk up the stairs from the lower level of Montmartre Mount to the Place du Tertre with another two couples, the French 'bistro' restaurant Chez La Mere Catherine was our reward. They deliver what they promise. Beautiful classic bistro surrounding...More

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

One of Paris' most historic restaurants, founded in 1793 by Catherine Lemoine, the decor of Chez la Mere Catherine respects its past, retaining features such as traditional antiques, chairs and a bar. Spread throughout large rustic rooms, this is the original 'bistro' overlooking the city, with a peaceful garden and a blooming flowery terrace for wonderful summer dining. Although the menu has certainly changed over the years to meet the wishes of the clientele, the changes are not so radical as to stray from the typical cuisine of France. Offerings on the menu include Honey Confit of Suckling Pig, Ginger Grilled Frog's Legs and Seabream with Mango Coulis, amongst other delights. Entertaining you with performances of yesteryear, cabaret singers put on a show every night, whilst you enjoy your dinner in the romantic atmosphere of the village of Montmarte.
