La Mascotte is the last authentic Parisian bistro left on rue des Abbesses and a local favorite. It was founded in 1889, the same year as the Eiffel Tower and the Moulin Rouge. Great wines from local producers, fresh seafood from Britanny as well as meat from the family butcher and ice cream from Berthillon. No wonder it’s always packed.
So many restaurants! We have a list of our favorites and places guests have found to help you decide. Our list includes suggestions in other parts of Paris as well as Montmartre. Maybe you’ll find a new one to add to our preferred list.
Le Basilic, good food in a rustic 19th century setting.
If you saw the movie Amélie, you will recognize this as a main part of the film. Café de 2 Moulins remains a popular place with locals as well as tourists. It is on Rue Lepic, about a 10-minute walk away.
Bistro Poulbot, another traditional French charmer.
