A little bit tucked away and certainly not pretentious or over-hyped, Pause Gourmande deserves to be higher up the Montreuil rankings. It's a husband and wife team and they are good at what they do, which is providing freshly cooked food in a very relaxed atmosphere. Maybe the big TV puts people off but it is easy to ignore.

We recently visited and sat outside for pizza at lunchtime. Half way through eating, we were asked to move table in order to accommodate another customer. The restaurant staff should never have asked us to move in the first place whilst eating our hot food. Very embarrassing and rude service.

When we ordered, we asked for a "rumsteaks". instead we were given "bavettes", which were literally impossible to chew. When we asked for replacing it, the waitress gave me a choice of keeping the plate vs. switching to "a la carte" while we had already ate the starter and ordered the dessert... Ultimately it has been a poor dining experience... More

Wide selection of pizza and local dishes (snail pizza, anyone?). Very friendly service, and they tried very hard to understand my broken French. Food was good quality and generous portions, served with a smile

Chose this for its vegetarian pizzas and were not disppointed. We had different pizzas and both were well cooked, good portion size and very tasty. Very good service too.

A family run restaurant in the centre of town. The fixed-price menu is excellent. Can recommend the beef carbonnade and the cod. The wine is good and also very reasonable in price. At first glance you might think it only does pizzas but don't be fooled by this. They serve many other dishes both a la carte and the fixed... More
