Beautiful restaurant - poor food. Not good for vegetarians.

Well worth going just to see the art deco interior - very impressive. We recently had a 50th Birthday meal at La Coupole. Service was brilliant & atmosphere was lovely. Unfortunately the food let it down - the vegetarians in our party were given a starter of salad, followed by a main course of hot... read more

we popped in for a late night snack. I had a cheese plate for 15 euros and it was THE BEST CHEESE PLATE I HAVE EVER HAD. Yes that necessitated all caps! I hate it when you get a cheese dish and the portions are small and only 3/5 of the cheeses don't smell like feet. Every single one of... More

This is the BISTRO with all the classic and charming Parisian atmosphere. The ambiance is very good and the "tout Paris" is there, especially for dinner. A MUST for the experience.

This enormous Art Deco restaurant is best visited for its buzz rather than for its cuisine which reached its zenith in the 1970s and then lost something when it became part of a much bigger group. I still like the classic onion soup gratinee.

A visit to Paris is not complete unless having a dinner or lunch at La Coupole. This restaurant is the ultimate "Brasserie" with an embedded history. The food, service, and atmosphere is excellent which is what you pay for.

Great interior with photos of the great and good and art by Chagall adorning the pillars. Drinks only but good, bit quiet when visited but was late afternoon so probably yet to kick off.

Our waiter disappeared for long periods of time. The signature lamb curry was fine, the sole was delivered lukewarm (waited too long to be picked up by the waiter?), nothing was great.

We visited here based on the recommendation of our hotel and the reservation included a free glass of champagne. This place is truly amazing if you enjoy a slice of theatre with your food. All the staff were courteous and friendly, full of old fashioned charm. In fact the place just oozed charm and combined with an amazing meal we... More

Fantastic food and the real surprise is the Indian Curry. The sea food platters are also very good. Jean-Luc always made my stay feel special!

Neighborhood Profile
Montparnasse
The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas, brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and historical monuments and treasures. In between lie adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small gardens to match. Just a short metro ride away from the center of Paris this neighborhood has something for every hour of the day.
