Situated close to the lagoon side of the Pullman hotel, La Taverne Romaine (the Roman tavern) is in a small 2 story building.The menu is a mix of Italian and French dishes, with pizza being a popular choice.
With its lacquered wood and subdued lighting, Montparnasse transports clients to the Art Deco Parisian brassieres on the boulevard of the same name. For the ex-pat and local elite, this is of the one of the must visit places for French cuisine in classy surroundings.
It's also a regular haunt for local businessmen who constitute a major part of the clientele. Montparnasse has two main parts; a brasserie and a trattoria. From September to June, the restaurant has a selection of sea food as well as a broad selection of meat dishes (veal, kidneys, andouillette de Troyes, steak Chateaubriand, hock of ham...) with a ceiling price of around 13,500 cfa.
The prices will put some people of, but the Montparnasse is one of the culinary highlights on the Abidjan scene. The varied menu is regularly updated, the service is impeccable and waiting times are limited. Great for business lunches, but also for those special occasions when you're prepared to go the extra mile.
