About Montmartre Restaurant Francais
Great deal, good food
The £12pp for 2 courses was a great deal, wine was reasonable at £20-25, we had pinot noir and it was beautiful. Ordered mussels to start, amazing and quite a big portion, my partner had rabbit terrine and again, good quality and large portion for a starter. Mains we had gnocchi and the sausage/harissa - both very nice. Got sat at private booth without requesting which was lovely. No fish option on rustic menu would be my only criticism.
