  • Was thrilled to see the icon of the bohemia plaza, but when it reaches what I found was a square full of tables of restaurants and some painter at the edge of the sidewalk, the only square-free space, was such a disappointment that I didn't or a photo in overview could be any any tourist town square , bars, restaurants and tables stacked side by side

  • Isn't a staple of Paris and the Montmartre district, 2 of the sacred heart, it's really very very nice. A square cut place occupied year-round by artists, in a portrait or other, it's very beautiful. Surrounded of restaurants more or less interesting also. There are great views of the city or the small charming corners, recalling the Paris of the belle epoque. A must see!

  • We finally made it to here one evening, on our most recent trip to Paris to see the artists at work. The restaurants felt very touristy - with people on the street trying to convince you to eat at their establishment (usually if someone has to convince you, run!), but watching the artists at work, and listening to live music (cellos, oboes, quartets) throughout the square and around the corner was a treat. I can't compare this to the past, and we didn't find it too overrun with tourists while we were there, but I'm sure it changes with day of the week and time of day. I found the entire area charming and a visual treat, and would highly recommend it. Some very talented artists at work here.
  • Full of artists offering to paint a portrait of you in a quintessentially French cobbled square. Restaurants seemed very expensive. Try to avoid the roaming artists as they can be more annoying than the ones with a table set up in the square itself.
  • A great place to stop at the top of the hill. And have a long lunch. Artists in the square are interesting.
  • Fête du vin is a really cool event taking place here yearly. It is really pleasant to drink a good wine with this beautiful landscape
  • World famous artists' square in Montmartre. Not to be missed!
