Au Bon Acceuil
One of the best French meals I’ve had in France. Three course menus using seasonal ingredients. Inventive starters, plats, and desserts. VERY curmudgeony waiters, but the food makes up for it. Great for special occasion.

Perfect when you don’t feel like cooking dinner and are hungry for meat and potatoes. The take-away ribs are delicious and the free-range chicken is nice. (Right next door, is a good carryout place to pick up your veggies.)

Cuisine: Tasty, authentic and affordable crêpes. Galettes and crêpes made with traditional Bretagne recipes. The cider and flour comes from Bretagne.
My favorite crêperie in Montemartre. Make sure to order the menu with une galette salée et une crêpe sucrée. And please don’t forget the le cidre (cider)!
