This high-end restaurant is created for the times when you wish to pamper yourself or have a special occasion to toast and celebrate.
The spirit of “vieux Montmartre” is pretty much alive at La Mascotte, one of the hill’s emblematic and authentic Parisian brasseries located on the picturesque Rue des Abbesses. Dating from 1889 (the year that saw the inaugural of two other indispensable Parisian landmarks, the Eiffel Tower and the Moulin Rouge), this old-fashioned bar and brasserie welcomes everyone – from colourful regulars gossiping around the bar to curious first-timers who came to savour the restaurant’s celebrated seafood platters.
A great spot to mingle with the locals, enjoy a glass of chilled Chablis or feast on mussels and prawns, this is the place to go for an exceptional lobster or oyster fiesta in Montmartre.
With its classic dining room featuring Art Deco décor, wood-paneled and mirrored walls and signature green banquettes, this neighborhood restaurant has local color galore. Its amicable personnel, great service and authentic Parisian atmosphere render a dinner at La Mascotte into your favourite French movie scene, starring you.
Catering some of Paris’ best fruits de mer, La Mascotte has been serving regional French products for over a century. Delivered “straight from the farm” to create some of the most beloved classics of French cuisine, the pork, ham and sausages come from premium free-range pigs in Cantal, the beef originates from the Joffrois family butcher in Pierrefort and the fish and seafood, which are the restaurant’s specialty, are brought in fresh daily, straight off the boat in Brittany or from the best Atlantic fish farms.
To explore the chef’s gastronomic mood of the day, go for the set three-course meal menu. Whether you pick the spiced velouté d’asperges (asparagus cream soup), the excellent steak tartare, the warming potée auvergnate (pork stew) or the moist rum baba cake, you will come to understand that at La Mascotte no choice is unfortunate.
