Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Such a lovely bar and cocktails were so tasty - creme brûlée and a nutty cocktail. Waiting staff lovely too and prices so good for london. Only issue was it smelt like a house with a dog - not sure how but only reason for...not giving a five starMore

Good well balanced cocktails in this cool bar in hip Bethnal Green. For a refreshing drink try their Apples cocktail, the only thing is you can drink it too quickly! We had thorough explanation from our waiter on how they pressed the apples for this...drink. Also tried Pina colada.... hadn't had one in years, it was superb. You get a bowl of popcorn with the drinks which is a nice touch too. We went early so it wasn't very busy but still nice atmosphere, welcoming, good friendly service.More

Coupette is a chic bar in a hip London neighborhood. We had a great experience, and I can’t wait to return. The bar is French-inspired and features a large selection of Calvados; that said, there’s an innovative cocktail program that goes way beyond Calvados. The...vibe was casual—darker space, GREAT music, friendly people. We sat at the bar itself (you can make a booking online); the bar surface is covered in old French currency. The bartenders were super friendly and happy to make special things for you, based on your taste, or something out of the multi-page cocktail menu. Their passion for their craft was present without any whiff of snobbery about it. That menu had great variety—boozy bitter stirred stuff, shaken fruity stuff, etc., with a large variety as to the featured spirits. We had two cocktails each, and they were really delicious. They were also sensory experiences: beautiful glassware, the perfect ice for each drink, etc. Small food menu, too; our cheese plate was excellent, with a nice variety of cheese and plenty of bread. Really great experience.More

I visited Coupette just before Christmas and had a lovely time. I sat at the bar and was served by Jay who was extremely friendly and attentive, keeping me entertained and advising me on what to order. The food and drinks were delicious and there...were lots of excellent non-alcoholic options to choose from. The live music was also lovely, the musician was very talented and also friendly, interacting with the patrons and taking requests. It was a delightful experience and I plan to return as soon as I have the opportunity.More

I'd visited once before with some friends pre-lockdown, and decided to visit again, this time with my girlfriend. It was great to be sat at the bar again, especially to watch all the staff work, which was a pleasure. They were exceptional. Attentive, knowledgeable, engaging,...and all with a smile. We tried numerous cocktails, and enjoyed each and every one of them. The Mojito with the sorbet was a particular highlight of a great evening. Can't wait to come back again.More

Good Value, strong cocktails at a reasonable price for London. Nothing to disappoint. The visit was perfect and the service was great. Only thing; the waiter needs to listen about how the bill needed to be split.....The split was not even, so people in the...party paid more than others despite asking for a specific split. He needed to listen, rather than rush. That is the only feedback. We were no over charged, but there was a failure in comms. Will be back for sure.More

We had a table for four. The staff were all outstanding and attentive and get top marks. The cocktails / wine and beer that we all had were very very good. Indeed as expected the cocktails were actually superb. Unfortunately what was described as a...sea plate was a massive let down as everything was deep fried and not presented well at all, piled up and messy. I would have expected a mix of fried ( fish fingers) and grilled or pan cooked perhaps, but no. The sea plate was edible but was like something i would have expected to get at a cheap seaside pub. I expected better.More

We booked in advance as not to miss out on a table, we live in Bath and had heard great things about the place. We were really happy to find they have live music on early in the week, so we had a live singer...playing the piano just tables away from us, such a fantastic atmosphere. The drinks are amazing, definitely recommend the Champagne Pina Colada and Apples (a must, really). We also had The Big Plate, it was the perfect charcuterie board for 2 people and tasted delicious. Was really lovely to visit and will definitely be recommending and returning when we can.More

I have been to Coupette already few times, last Friday was the first time after the reopening and the team did not fault. We never waited too much for our food and drinks and the guy (Italian, don't know his name) that was at the...entrance was constantly checking if we were fine etc. Also we got some nice welcome treats, very much appreciated! Thank you and see you again :)More

Fabulous cocktail bar. Loved it from the moment we walked in. Came here specially and so glad we did. Great atmosphere and wasn't too busy on the Saturday night. Mixologist was friendly and helpful. Cocktails were divine and they were happy to make drinks not...on the menu. Definitely coming back here for their development drinks on a Sunday, which are only £5 each. Fabulous.More
