Our hotel made us the reservation as we stood and listened, but the restaurant denied we had made a reservation. The glam girls at the front desk were supercilious. But after a long conversation with waiters they offered us a tiny , cramped table in the only part of the restaurant that was occupied - jammed between two other tiny,... More

This restaurant may have had its heyday in the 40s and 50s when it regularly hosted Picasso, Camus, and Sartre, but the art on the pillars, walls, and ceiling cupola is still just as nice, and it remains a solid value in Paris today. The seafood platters are generous and impeccably fresh, the steaks are flavorful and tender, the service... More

We have been to La Coupole many times, but somehow had given it a miss in our latest trips to Paris. I'm so very glad that this time we decided to return. La Coupole is now back on our little list of unmissable restaurants when in Paris. Perfect service, great atmosphere and excelent food. Their oysters are definitely second to... More

We had a great dinner at La Coupole with our family. We thought the food and wine were very good (traditional French cuisine). We loved the history of the restaurant. Very friendly staff. Seafood is amazing and order the Crepes Suzette for dessert. Merci Beaucoup!

In Paris celebrating my mum's 70th birthday with my wife and decided to book La Coupole - wouldn't normally book a touristy restaurant but thought it would be nice to try just for the atmosphere and history.

A large party of us dined here on business and the food was really nice, the staff were attentive and accommodated colleagues' dietary requirements fluidly and without complaint. Also the interior decor of this restaurant is stunning!

Despite the history and decoration of this restaurant, do not waste your money here, Or have only a coffee if you really want to see the decoration. Very noisy, service very long, waiters not listening to the clients, too busy to sing every five minutes happy birthday to the clients (which is an attraction for tourists). One of our friend...

Today the restaurant La Coupole is a historical monument of Paris. Decor is a mixture between harmony and elegance, with brown soft sofas, magnificent sculptures, columns, mosaic floor and, of course, a dome! You sit in a circle of celebrities, who at one time or another often visited the restaurant. This Hemingway, and Picasso, and Edith Piaf and many others.... More

Neighbourhood 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 centre of Paris this neighbourhood has something for every hour of the day.
