Finally a neigborhood bistro in Montmartre!  I can now stumble down my 5 flights of stairs and walk around the corner and experience Paris bistro dining at its best. Le Miroir serving crusty bread, fresh fish, meat and produce is a wonderful spot for a long lunch or a charming dinner. I enjoy their authentic French dishes with a twist, homemade desserts, friendly service and daily specials. Tucked into a small side street in Montmartre, the restaurant’s simple decor and cozy ambiance make for an ideal stop for a a meal in the heart of one of the best neighborhoods in Paris. Le Miroir aims to please and pleased I most certainly was.

  1. Erica, stumbled upon your blog while googling cell phone usage in Paris. My mom lives there (a bit south of Montmartre, rue de Rochechouard) and says that cell to landline calls cost the landline owner. She gets me so confused that by the time she’s “explained” it to me I’m back where I started.

    I read your blog piece on it but thought you might be able to answer the question more directly?

    Anyway, your blog is very nostalgic for me, as I spent a good part of my life there. Hope you’re enjoying it all.

    1. Hi Suzy… thanks for your comment! As far as I know, land line owners aren’t charged for incoming calls, but they are charged for outgoing calls to cell phones. All the phone providers in Paris have slightly different rules, but I think that’s the standard. Hope this helps! Tory
