Lovely setting and History. Sadly let down by the dreadful waiter service, they really do not care. The food was average, the escargot was good but the steak was just dismal, also we could not relax as they wanted our table. Sadly not worth visiting,...More

Elegant yet simple. Excellent food, which is no longer assured in Paris, and attentive service. Tartare aller retour and filet de bar are both excellent. Pricey though.

Really Don't bother with this place, the service is appalling and the food, overpriced and not very good. Give this place a wide berth.

I visited this restaurant in January 18. I had foie gras with toast, delicious and not so low in calories... I then had profiterolles au chocolat for dessert, puff pastry cut in two and separated with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, covered in hot...More

A cosy place to have a simple meal or a drink ! Do not go there to have a gastronomic dish... Last time we went for lunch with friends and stayed a very long time , it was just a nice time !!!!

We came in for drinks a bit after six. There was a lively animated crowd. The drinks and the service were very good.

We joined friends from Paris at this classic brasserie; they had suggested it and we were glad they had. The duck breast was superb as was the tarte tatin. Full of literary and artistic history, the brasserie maintains its traditional atmosphere. .

This mythic address of Montparnasse is more likely to be considered as a perfect location for having a drink with friends than to eat. The best location is to sit on the terrasse either protected or not depending on the weather conditions.

We only went here because of the historical importance, and in that regard it didn't disappoint. The food however, did. My advice is go to the bar (which is the original bar) and order a drink. Pretend you're Hemingway then move on to Le Rotonde...More

We hopped off the sightseeing bus and used this restaurant. The prices were ferocious - 12€ for a relatively small beer. The food was, at best, mediocre and the service surly and slow. I suspect they have given up trying to produce good food as...More
