We have just had dinner at La Coupole and the food was truly awful. We had onion soup, which was like some left over greasy broth with a couple of onions in it. This was served with grated cheese and some horrid dry nasty factory grilled bread. The lamb curry was cold. Nothing at all like the original Coupole lamb... More

Had Christmas day lunch here as pre booked and were delighted by the whole experience. We were fortunate to have a fantastic waiter who was very attentive and instructive to my sister-in-law in the correct way to eat oysters. The ambience was celebratory but quietly so although a nearby table had all our attention when the lights were dimmed and... More

Despite having email confirmation of a booking for 6 people at 10.30am for brunch on 1 January we arrived to be told the restaurant was not opening until midday. I had mentioned it was due to be a birthday celebration in my email and despite showing their email confirmation at the door, we had no apology but were just told... More

Dear Anne, we are sorry about this situation. Actually we don't serve brunch in our Brasserie, the breakfast service closes at 10:30 am and the lunch service starts at 12:00. We strive to welcome you in the best condition. We will be more vigilant in the future. This situation was exceptional and we hope to welcome you a next time... More

You decide to go there for the place itself, its historical dimension, the Art Deco surrounding, the waiters friendliness. Not really for the food which is ok, not more.

Atmosphere and surroundings were great, but my meal was disgusting (andouille à la ficelle - ok, I knew what I was ordering, namely pig's innards, but they had not been cleaned properly and the whole was inedible). Seriously, don't bother.

We have eaten in La Coupole many times- a trip to Paris isn't complete without it. This time, we had a delicious lunch there before leaving Paris. La Coupole is a grand brasserie. The interior transports you back to a more civilised time. The welcome is slick and you are escorted to your table. The waiting staff are a joy... More

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.

Staying in Montparnasse

Neighborhood Profile
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.
