Great place to relax and mix with real Parisian writers and artists. Across from La Cupole, Le Select has remained true to the authentic Paris. Still locally owned and staffed by waiters who have been there 20 years or more.

One of my favourite meals on this trip. Service was good, the atmosphere was good, the prices were good, and the food was exceptional! We both ordered the chicken and the serving was huge but it was so tasty we ate every morsel. Thoroughly enjoyed...More

Several scenes of Ernest Hemingway's novel The Sun Also Rises (1926) is set here. Man Ray, Cocteau and Lost Generation Americans hung out at its vast glass-fronted cafés, socialising. Worth visiting.

This cafe is really good at maintaining the atmosphere of The Lost Generation. I had a Cafe Noir there every morning. They were not a typical tourist spot, which is something I liked actually.

We needed to eat a light meal before turning in early for our flight home. It's hard to find "light" food in the evening In Paris. Our hotel "Le Royal" sent us here and we were seated in the café part of the restaurant where...More

We liked the location but the menu offered few and rather disappointing choices. The chicken club sandwich had more mayo and bacon and hardly any chicken; similarly, there was hardly any chicken in the chicken Caesar salad. We left rather disappointed and decidedly hungry.
