I accidently confused this terrible cafe with the nearby Le Palais Royal which has a much higher rating. This is an expensive place because it's so close to the Louvre: half a liter of flat water will cost you EUR 6, I found out on...More

We stopped in for a quick drink and a snack after stopping by the Louvre at night to take some pictures. I've seen varying reviews on this cafe but I can honestly say our experience was very good. I can't speak for full meal quality...More

The food and atmosphere were pretty bad. Our waiter was the worst service giver in the world. Obnoxious, unpleasant and didn't listen to us at all. First time in my life I didn't leave a tip! Do not go there!

Great salads and menu with average Paris prices. Free water and bread which always gets the extra star. Comfortable off road seating but with fold away window walls for a breeze and crowd watching. A pleasant lunch, all in all.

One of those cafes you adopt as a local when on holiday. Went there for lunch and breakfast. Happy, friendly, attentive staff. Quick service. Good food and wine. All the things you want. A well cooked steak and big, cheesy Croque Monsieur & Madame. I...More

A bit overpriced, but what isn't, in Paris? I had tagliatelles carbonara which I thought was quite tasty. He had lasagne bolognaise and was not disappointed. Don't know if it was the time of day, but the place was mostly empty, which may not have...More

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
