    La Bonne Franquette: Even if just for the atmosphere.....

    This is a restaurant that you will fall in love with on sight. Situated atop Montmartre it is so pretty on the outside that you ache to get inside and have a proper look. It is rather big with a huge back section where large groups are accommodated. Regular diners sit in the front section and a wandering musician caters to both areas giving it that french atmosphere that you see in old movies. Inside is just as attractive as outside, but the place tends to lose its lustre a little once you get seated.

    Favorite Dish: We ordered four different bottles of wine before we finally settled on a suggestion from the waitress, the reason being that everything we asked for was met with "Don't have" from her. What we finally got was mediocre to say the least. The food was fine but not memorable although, my friend tells me his salad was outstanding. (Rocket, pears, walnuts etc.)
    Medium priced.

    One of the most famous Montmartre historical restaurant. A good way to have on step back in the "années folles". Good food, very nice "atmosphere".
    The historical garden was used by Vincent Van Gogh, for his painting "La Guinguette".

    Favorite Dish: Traditional French food, excellent. "La bonne franquette" means a user-friendly atmsophere and cooking, when you're enjoyig your life, happy to share a meal (good taste) with friends.

    Auberge de la Bonne Franquette: Fun atmosphere

    This has to be one of those 'touristy' places, there were 2 tour groups (including ours) dinning at the same time. The food was good, the service was superb and the ambience was the best. They had a life band who played very upbeat music, they put everyone to dance. I am sure the wine had something to do with it too! The band had a intersting look...something between the GooGoo Dalls and ACDC.
    This is a very good place for large groups.
