Le Square Marcadet
Here is a reason to venture 10 minutes from the crowds of Montmartre, to the backside of that legendary hill where you will experience a "restaurant-oasis". After a troubled history, the Square Mercadet has been reinvented by a team of three, notably a very talented South African cook.
A dinner with six friends gave 100% satisfaction to all. The cuisine was inventive and savory, with particular mastery demonstrated in the cookery of the meats and fish: not a second too much nor too little. We dare you to find a better swordfish or burbot dish.
Before becoming absorbed by our taste-buds, we felt the coolness of the early April evening fall upon us as we sipped Chardonnay on the secluded terrace, nestled among blooming vines and far from the noise of the city.
Of course, you can find comparable quality in reknown Parisian restaurants, but not at these prices: 15€ for a lunch menu, 24€ for a dinner menu (appetizer + main dish). Lucky readers, that probably won't last for long.
