Walking round the 18th trying to find somewhere to have lunch, my friend and I stumbled upon this little gem. Purportedly a Spanish restaurant going by the name Casa Lola, my friend was initially a little skeptical because she'd lived in Spain for 12 years and doubted that the food in some Montmartre place would be up to her high standards. However, we'd looked at the other restaurants in the area and decided against them for one reason or another so as time was ticking by and our stomachs were grumbling louder with every 60 seconds, I managed to convince her that we should try it.
It's a very pretty, modern restaurant. The service was efficient and yet polite. We both chose the plat du jour, which on that day was a roti de veau (roast veal) with jasmine rice and a tomato. It wasn't culinary genius but it was well-cooked and tasty.
And it might sound stupid, but the ice cream that we had for dessert was the best part of the meal. Tangy, full of flavour and very generous with the chocolate chips or real fruit depending on the flavour - I plumped for the strawberry and vanilla, and her for the coffee and chocolate.
Actually, I lie - the best part of the meal was getting the bill.... because, having chosen the lunch set menu, it only came to 12 euros per person for the two courses.
