One of Montparnasse's most famous brasseries, La Coupole opened in 1927 and soon became a home-away-from-home for Apollinaire, Cocteau, Satie, Stravinsky, and (again) Hemingway. In the 1980s the brasserie was bought by the Flo chain, which preserved the superb Art Deco interior, including pillars by Chagall and Brancusi. The place retains its hustle and bustle—with scurrying waiters and the overwhelming noise of clinking glasses and clattering silverware. Executive Chef Jean Philippe Bourgueil whips up house specialties, including curried farmhouse lamb (served since 1927) and beef filet flambéed with Armagnac.

Before arriving to Paris I get informed about this place and I think it was the best idea and trip advice i received. The menu is incredibly delicious in this place. Everything is a poem, a rumour confirmation to the palate about the deliciousness of the French food. I have been in Paris lots of times but this one was exclusively dedicated to the food. I ate here the best crab i have ever ate in my entire life. It was delicious. I recommend this place
tremendously. My only suggestion would be to do a reservation because the place can be overcrowded and finding a table can get tricky.
