Reasonably priced restaurants near the Louvre

I tried a search and found a couple of relevant responses, looking for a few more restaurants to add to my list!

We are leaving on Wednesday for 4 days in Paris - I have only been once before for a total of a day and half (sad), my husband has been twice (but many years ago) and this will be my 8 year old daughter's first trip!

We are staying at the Hotel Lumen Louvre and are looking for restaurant suggestions in the 1st, preferably somewhat close to the hotel / Louvre / Pyramides metro stop, depending on your point of reference.

We don't want to spend a fortune on dinner and would prefer a few suggestions where it won't be necessary to make a reservation if we eat early (say 6:30-7 pm?).....

As we will have our 8 year old daughter with us, we would like restaurants with a more casual atmosphere (if that is possible in this area?). Don't need the BEST food in Paris, but also won't sacrifice taste just to save a couple of dollars... guess I'm looking for those reasonably priced gems in this area.

Any suggestions are much appreciated - many thanks in advance.

Both l'Ardoise and Le Soufflé on the r. Mont-Thabor are reliable.

Well, you're not too far from Les Halles, which has Le Pied de Cochon open 24/7 (as with most "Freres Blanc" restaurants, the effort is done more on the decor than the food, but this remains very decent still).

On the other side of Les Halles is the meat specialist Louchebem (not sure they are open as early as 6.30-7 though, which is very, very early by Parisian dining standards).

Just over on the Left Bank, across from Notre Dame, is l'Ecluse Grands-Augustins...

Le Souffle is quite good. I've eaten there and can vouch for it.

The other option is to go to a Bistro where you'll find the food quite good, a good variety of options and very reasonably priced. There are many in the area you're in, try Le Nemours, Le Musset all in the immediate area of the Louvre and rue Rivoli.

We had good Italian food at Oscar on rue des Pyramides if you are in the mood for Italian that day. We ate at 7:00 with a reservation but saw several couples come in and be seated without reservations...

You won't find a restaurant open before 7 pm (and usually not until 7:30). The Nemours, which is just across the rue Rivoli from the Louvre, is a cafe and would be serving. The food is good; they usually have a quick of the day with a salad, and they have composed salads and sandwiches. If the weather is decent, you could sit outdoors and watch the world go by.

Bistrot Richelieu is an excellent little restaurant , 45 rue de Richelieu.

www.bistrotrichelieu.fr. If you check on their site 'accès' there is a map with their location. They are very close to the Louvre and Metro Pyramides.

Thank you very much for your replies...

I feel much more confident that we can find some decent food (at a fair price) close to our hotel.

I have a dislike for restaurants that cater primarily to tourists and given our location, I'm sure a lot of them do. I have read the reviews for the restaurants mentioned and it appears that many have local guests as well - this helps!

Very excited - only 2 days and we'll be on a plane to Paris!
