19th arrondissement

Transformed into a bar-restaurant, the magnificent ancient Rotonde on Place Stalingrad has become a favoured destination for partying Parisians. A vestige of the old city wall of ancient Paris, the Rotonde was built a year before the French Revolution by Claude Nicolas Ledoux, one of the founders of the neoclassical movement. It only just survived Haussmann, who wanted to knock it down in the aftermath of the fire of Paris in 1871, and the construction of second Metro line in 1903, which also threatened it with destruction. Today, miraculously conserved, the Rotonde is the jewel in the crown of a district that, since the development of the banks of the Ourcq canal, has been enjoying a thorough renaissance.

Went to Paris in September 2012. Stayed just down the road from here and went to the bar here every night of the holiday. Such a great atmosphere. We ate here on the last day, and I have no complaints about the food or service in fact it was brilliant. Pricey for us, but we got what we paid.


I arrived just as a new menu was introduced, i was surprised at how reasonably priced it was for the quality of the food and the service was very good. There was a lot of variety in the available drinks and i ended up staying for the club afterwards which made the night pretty long!!
