We found ourselves in this cafe due to a bout of bad weather when visiting the Louvre. The cafe was nice, the food was ok, but the service was interesting. We watched a number of Tourists be seated in the colder, weather exposed parts of the cafe, including ourselves. We noticed all decided to leave due to the cold and the fact that they were paid little attention. We decided to stay as we were quite hungry. The food came and it was ok. The funniest part occurred when we went up to pay and the waiter decided to help himself to a tip, and a reasonable one at that. We decided not to argue the point, but wanted to leave a note for future clients. Check your bill, and if you receive poor service, move on. There are plenty of other lovely restaurants and cafes in Paris.

After a long day that included our arrival from London, a trip to the Paris visitors' center to pick up our museum passes, and another trip to the local Monoprix to pick up some necessities for our apartment stay, my family and I walked down to this corner bistro to relax and have a bite. Although there were multiple open tables near the windows and outside, for some reason we were shown to an unoccupied, rather warm corner of the establishment. Service was rather sluggish even though the bar was not very busy. After having a cold drink each, we ordered the assorted meat and cheese plate, which came with a reasonably decent assortment of, as you might expect, meats and cheeses, as well as a basket of nice crusty french bread. The cheese selection was good although the portions a tad small. The pate was very good. Based upon the service and our general level of fatigue, we decided against ordering dinner.

This was a great little gem we found on our trip to Paris. Not knowing the area at all we were looking for somewhere with good food, good service and reasonable prices. This place ticked all the boxes plus more. While we possibly should have been a bit more adventurous during our 2 night stay in Paris, Coup d'Etat was so good we came back here the second night too... And the food and service was just as good the second night. My partner and I still talk about our meals here and recommend it to anyone we know who is heading to Paris. Thank you for being so memorable!

If you are looking for a place with good french food, this is not it. Although the food was not bad it was not that great. I had the Entrecote and the steak was very chewy and tough to cut. My partner had the "Canard" (Duck) and it was the worst he had all trip.

After long hours at the Louvre, if you are not in the mood for a hearty meal, which could prove quite expensive, this café would provide a place to rest and enjoy hot food while relaxing at the tables outside or - if it is too cold - a second floor hall with panoramic views of Saint Honorè
The waiter was friendly and helped us with our choices. The glass of wine was nice also.
