A welcome restaurant with full service. The food was nice with a wee wine list which was more than adequate. A bit expensive but what do you expect from somewhere which is in the centre of Paris in a former Palace.

There is a long queue but we were able to get a seat in a short wait. Food is okay. I wish they had more food options.

Me and my husband stopped at Cafe Mollien for lunch after a visit to the French painters Gallery at the 1st floor in Denon Wing. After 5 minutes stay in line among the columns inside the cafe we had a table on the terrace which...More

I'm giving Cafe Mollien 4 stars because of it's location inside the Louvre and because it does have a nice selection of sweet treats and drinks. It's in a beautiful spot and the view from the windows and patio is simply fantastic! After making a...More

go for the daily cake special, but only if you can get the balcony... the view/ambience is what makes it a special treat (overlooking the pyramid)... also a nice ham sandwich

My husband and I decided to take a break while visiting the Louvre and have a snack at Cafe Mollien. I had a lemon meringue and my husband had a slice of chocolate cake. They were both good for a quick sweet treat.

ALthough the wait is substantial, the food was good enough and the prices weren't outrageous. The service (once seated) was fast and friendly.

Near where the Mona Lisa is situated. Had to queue quite a bit for this fast lunch. Price is ok considering it within the tourism belt & in the Louvre. Food doesn't taste that great. But if u are really hungry, who cares?

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops
