“Beautiful terrace, ok food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012 via mobile

We (3 friends) went there yesterday night, 14th July, and had a very nice evening as the light show took place on the Place de la Rotonde fountain, just in front of the restaurant.

The positive points:
- location
- nice terrace
- good service
- pleasant atmosphere at night
- modern design

The negative points:
- food was ok but nothing special, although the menu looked really good
- we had to pay extra for having half a portion lettuce and half a portion pasta instead of a full portion (and the pasta were served with nothing, not even with a bit of butter, too plain I think for paying extra!)

I would return with pleasure as we overall had a good experience and the service was very friendly.

“Thoroughly enjoyable.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

Very French, pricey, excellent ambiance, outstanding service. I was thrilled to dine at the historic La Rotonde and enjoyed every minute. Our first dinner in Paris and the staff was kind and helpful despite our lack of French language skills.

“Creat menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2012

We started with oysters that were very plumpy and delicious, then moved on to filet de bar. I have always had this at la rotonde - it hasn't changed much in the past 5 years, just slightly more buttery. It is a great mix of sweet butter and sour lemon! And then finished with the macaron that just melts in your mouth. Paid just under 100 euros for two menus and a wine.
The atmosphere is great - busy and bustling. The service is very French, I.e. not friendly but I think it is slightly improving - we got smiles and thank you's.
You must go at least once to this restaurant and eat French food - not salad or pasta!!!!
