What a find for visitors to Paris. One minute from the metro station so easy to get to, come rain or shine. The greeting staff made us welcome, and every courtesy was extended. Great atmosphere, and as the evening trade built to a climax, there's are dozens of staff racing around a gigantic dining hall, serving fabulous food. Wine waiter... More

We were with a group tour and were offered a fixed menu, and each course was delicious and nicely presented. The bright ambiance is lively, though noisy. The restrooms were spacious and impeccable. The service was efficient and friendly.

We were having a few days in Paris and booked a table at La Couple for dinner. It was just like stepping back in time - the decor although fresh was so art nuveau and in keeping with 1927 when it opened. It's very large and most tables taken by tourists and French alike. Wonderful food and wine and attentive... More

This is a famous, very large restaurant and its a gorgeous art deco place in the heart of Monparnasse and it has a great buzzy atmosphere. There were 12 of us in total and compared to other restaurants I have eaten in in Paris the food wasn't really more than average and it was expensive. What really let this restaurant... More

We visited La Coupole again last week and because it was a Saturday booked on-line before we left the UK as we knew it would be busy, and it was. However my partner had the "signature" curried lamb dish and despite the fact that they have been serving it since 1927 they still CANNOT manage to serve it hot or... More

We visited this restaurant a few years ago for an evening meal. We returned on this visit to Paris for lunch. The food was great and the decor still amazing.

I know this is a tourist place for almost one hundred years, but I go back every time I am in town during oyster season. Although the season was almost over our selection of fruits de mer was great.

Maybe this place has a good reputation but they didn't live up to it for our visit! We had a reservation for 8PM, didn't get served until about 9:30 even though people around us who came later were finishing up their meals. My daughter ordered her steak "well done" it came out medium rare. My chicken dish arrived cold, I... More

The famous La Coupole restaurant is a must visit in Paris. The quality of food and service is impeccable. The Art Deco interior combined with the hustle bustle of the place creates a great atmosphere. I will be visiting again.

Staying in Montparnasse

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.
