Typical Museum cafe

The waiters not being interesting in serving, not just us but anyone, perhaps they'd had a long day after all it was 3 in the afternoon

I had lunch here today after visiting the museum next door (Musee de Quai Branly). This was quite simply the best Caesar salad I have eaten in a long time. The food was fresh, tasty and simply served. Waitress service was impeccable

The menu is simple (croque monsier, ceaser salad, linguine with pesto), but they also offer a plat du jour in the formula. I got there too late for the plat du jour. The cafe gourmand was just okay, not impressive at all for 8 euros. The formula is around 20 euros, I think. The cafe is nice for its atmosphere,... More

After a few hours in the museum, I decided to stop in to the café for a late lunch. The staff here were very friendly and I ordered a linguine with pesto. The bread served with the meal was beautifully fresh and the pasta al dente. I finished off the meal with a very nice coffee and the price was... More

Lukewarm cheeseburger and a salad of cheap ingredients that bore no resemblance to a Caesar salad, all at ridiculous prices for the quality presented. Couple that with lacklustre service and an insufficient number of toilets for the number of patrons, and the result is very disappointing.

... and even worse, in most cases your table will not have any view on the Eiffel Tower ! So why go there ? For the garden around, and of course for the museum. Because there is nothing better half a mile around is another reason. Or may be becasuse you can not afford Les Ombres, two floors above. Having... More

High staff-visitor ratio, and still, they manage to make this an irritating experience. Unfriendly and inefficient. One toilet, that wouldn't be misplaced on a building site. Food is quite appalling and, for what it is, very expensive. To be avoided.

Such a beautiful setting for an unappetising Caesar Salad. The view of neighbouring buildings, the Eiffel Tower and a verdant garden made up for the quality of the salad. Chunks of Parmesan, deep fried chicken, boiled egg quarters, tasteless tomato slices? Perhaps a good place to stop for a glass of wine and an espresso

We had lunch before visiting the museum and enjoyed our cheeseburgers. This is certainly not a top tier restaurant, but it was a nice break in our day. We sat outside and had a perfect view if the Eiffel Tower during our lunch. The staff, surprisingly as it is attached to a big tourist spot--the museum, was not very fluent... More

When you enter the Musee Du Quay Branly it's like you travel to another world in no time. After visiting the exhibits from Africa and Americas, we needed a break. There is a special atmosphere within this museum, so we decided to remain in the museum's garden for lunch. The Cafe Branly terrace is surrounded by exotic plants and the... More

Staying in Tour Eiffel / Invalides

Neighborhood Profile
Tour Eiffel / Invalides
With the Eiffel Tower at its core, the Invalides area of Paris is guaranteed to impress. Golden towers and Baron Haussmann's urban vision meet military precision, stretching avenues, and luscious lawns. The area boasts the Musée D’Orsay, the tomb of Napoleon, the National Parliament and UNESCO, as well as luxurious, exclusive residences. In fine restaurants and at the weekend markets, families, diplomats, and politicians brush shoulders with the tourists who come to see this postcard-perfect area for themselves.
