Walking around Paris, and in particular in the Montparnasse district, you will have the opportunity to see lots of restaurants and cafes, each more appetizing than the next. A question then arises ... Which restaurant to choose?

To avoid wasting precious time in searching for The Restaurant, we have listed a selection of restaurants / cafes especially for you who honor the art of traditional French cuisine.

1. Lunch: The legendary restaurant La Rotonde Montparnasse

Let's go to the restaurant La Rotonde in Montparnasse.

At the start of the 20th century, Mr. Libion bought a small bistro at the corner of Raspail and Montparnasse boulevards. This restaurant will become over time, one of the high places of Parisian life, a real institution. Immerse yourself in the cozy atmosphere, and take a seat on the red velvet benches, in the spacious, wooded and luxurious lounges. Then, taste a “reference French cuisine, traditional and rich.” A typically Parisian place, in a lively district 24 hours a day.

2. Snack: The famous Café de Flore

Now let's meet in the heart of the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district, in the 6th arrondissement.

The famous Parisian café-restaurant is located at the corner of Boulevard Saint-Germain and Rue Saint-Benoît, next to Café Les Deux Magots. “This Parisian institution is a historical center of literary, philosophical, cultural, artistic all-Paris, and a famous place for international tourism.” Recognizable by its flowery storefront in all seasons, you will quickly be captivated by the charm of the place, while enjoying a good hot coffee accompanied by its sweet pastry.

3. Dinner: The Bouillon Chartier Montparnasse

Finally, we invite you to one of the iconic places in Paris: Le Bouillon Chartier Montparnasse.

With friends, as a couple or with your family, let yourself be tempted by a bistronomic dinner in a sumptuous Art Nouveau decor: “ glass roof in shimmering colors, mirrors surrounded by woodwork, long railing in ornate wood and soft light.” You will discover “à la carte”, a french cuisine that will offer you a meal worthy of the name at a low price: Country terrine House, Grilled andouillette with mustard sauce & Whipped cabbage to finish. Enough to visit Paris with a full stomach for a whole day!
