A true Art Deco masterpiece, La Coupole is the most famous Parisian brasserie in the world. Today it is the quintessential symbol of Montparnasse's history, as well as a key component of the art of living and socialising in Paris, particularly in the 14th arrondissement.

Visit at La Coupole

The restaurant is a piece of art.... literally. The setting and decoration are beautiful. Is located nearby the Tour Montparnasse so you can combine both. Seafood was very good, and service was OK.

My partner and I were engaged that evening and it was definitely a suitable choice to celebrate in. We hadn't booked but staff quickly accommodated us before serving us with our delicious choices from menu Josephine, which was very good value for food of this quality. The building and art-deco design is beautiful.If we return to Paris we will definitely... More

La Couple pretty much lives off its history. Although the Art Deco ambience is still impressive, the service and food are not as good as they presumably once were. Having said that, I still go there on each trip to Paris to take a glass of Champagne and an assortment of oysters. You can get some very fine ones, especially... More

Food: we have order one menu(salmon spring roll + whiting fish)and another starter(onion soup) and main dish(COD fish) for two~ it taste like... More

A famous Paris institution that certainly lives up to its reputation. The decor is absolutely beautiful and worth a visit just to wallow in the opulence of the surroundings. The welcome was delightful and we were quickly seated at our reserved table. We chose snails to start with and lobster and steak to follow - both courses were absolutely delicious.... More

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.
