Food is good classic, but it is the atmosphere that makes it. The place has been operating since just after 1900. I thinks it is the best of the classic places on the street. Perfect for romantic French dinner. Go late to eat.

Whilst we were staying in Montparnasse we visited La Rotonde for breakfast one morning. The gentleman who served us was very friendly, personable and yet professional.

A great landmark restaurant - many celebrities (poets, authors, and even Lenin !) hung out here in the last century, and the restaurant has a wonderful ambiance and sense of history. You can easily imagine yourself transported back in time. Service was good, and the waiter-gentleman had an exceptional sense of humor which made the visit even more memorable. Food... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
