Where the Elite Meet to Eat

I like La Coupole for sentimental reasons, but It's not about the food. Parisians still love this place because it's rich in history, it's beautiful and it's a "scene." Very fine people watching! They also love scallops, a house specialty that cost more per once here than jewels. Meh, they're... read more

My wife and I visited this place 13 years ago before the children were born. Overpriced but historic. Stravinsky loved the place. We told our young daughters about it and this was our splurge lunch in Paris. Unfortunately, Paris is having a terrible heat wave and we arrived at noon, exhausted. The place was half full. They seated us in... More

Our food and service was of excellent quality and although the space felt like it was still retained its feeling of a bygone era, we felt it could do with a bit of a reduction of price and rather attract some locals to bring back some of that old flare Of the bygone era.

Quick weekend in Paris with my wife and son and a couple of friends. Booked dinner at La Coupole on a recommendation from my father who was a regular patron in the 90's and early 2000's. The place exudes Paris chic and perfectly mixes and matches the artistic side of Paris with an unforgettable atmosphere and a sense that one... More

I believe that the restaurant is one of the most famous in Paris. The place is nice and pleasant. The service is the best you can think of. Unfortunately I must say that even though the food is not bad at all, it is no more than that. What annoyed me most is that they serve quite small portions and... More

One of our group desperately wanted to eat at Sartre's restaurant. Once there we were taken to a table just to the side of the coupole and so we asked if we could be nearer. We were immediately moved right under, which was probably the only mistake we made. The food / the special menu was very good value, the... 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.
