The setting is unique. The scale probably too big. It was an interesting experience, but I doubt if we will return here on a next visit to Paris. On the other hand, we did enjoy our dinner at La Coupole.

I imagine that this is what the classic french brasserie would have been like decades ago. Great food, bustling room, indifferent waiters, cheesy birthday celebrations, what more could you want? A man at a nearby table sent his steak back 4 times which provided some entertainment. Highly recommended.

We weren't going to be in Montparnasse at a mealtime, but just had to visit the iconic La Coupole. So we went for morning coffee. The interior is fabulous, especially the deco details like light fittings, paintings etc. Even the loos have a touch of thirties elegance! Far from being reluctant to serve two gawping tourists with simply coffee, the... More

I have been coming to this restaurant since I was 21 and I am now 46 years old and it is still consistently wonderful every time I come. A trip to Paris is not complete without a night spent at the famous La Couple.

My girlfriend came here five years ago so we came back together yesterday evening. The place was really nice and funny with Art Deco decorations. The waiters were really kind, spoke a very good English and friendly helped us with the French menu. The food was very very good: my girlfriend took an excellent onion soup and I took a... More

I took my cousins from CA here when they came to visit. I thought they'd enjoy the ambiance and the food. They did! It's always a pleasure eating here. The food is good, solid, French fare without being spectacular. They've been successfully doing the same things for decades. There were five in our party. We had two Prestige Menus, duck... More

One of the best examples of art deco bistros in all of Paris. It is a simple pleasure to sit at the "American" bar, order a champagne and drink in the entire room. One does not go for the food, but for the art here on the walls, pillars, lamps and even their amazing ceiling. It is really a wonderful... More

Boulevard Montparnasse has everything: nice bookstores, nice old buildings, houses occupied by famous writers and artists, the tallest building of Paris - but it also has this landmark to modernity and art deco: La Coupole. Even if you may find it expensive, a tourist trap or "démodé" - especially after the new central atrium that looks more like a Star... More

The price is not really cheap but you get what you pay for. It's one of the good french restaurants in Paris for seafood and a nice french brasserie experience. Many residents went there and almost no tourists

Let the good times role at La Coupole. Great food. Classic architecture and a fine place to celebrate a birthday (the staff sing for you!)
