La Rotonde – Quartier Montparnasse
The Rotunda is a mythical place in the Montparnasse area.
The story goes back almost 90 years to when a certain Victor Libion took over the institution, which was then just a simple neighborhood bistro.
In 1910, many artists moved away from Montmartre to Montparnasse, which was very popular during the Roaring Twenties and became a hub for intellectuals and artists: Picasso left his mark there, followed by Vlaminck, Braque, Léger … It also included Modigliani, Cocteau, Apollinaire, Hemingway, André Breton … big names in music such as Debussy, Satie, Stravinsky, Gershwin, Georges Simenon …
Today la Rotonde is always well attended.
The food is traditional French cuisine.
