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

On our way to tour the Musee Branly we stopped in the cafe for a lite lunch. We both had the Caesar Salad with Chicken which was very different but tasty. It was relaxing sitting outside looking at the strollers walking on the greenway paths nearby. The service was good. Food was good and so was the atmosphere. A good... More

Popped in for a quick cup of coffee with my husband and children before heading for the Eiffel Tower. Far too expensive and not great coffee. The kids did not finish the hot chocolate and did not enjoy it - fortunately they shared one. Location obviously very good. No problem with the service.

A very pleasant, airy cafe alongside the Musee du Quai Branly, surrounded by gardens which must be lovely in summer. We both had the great value onion soup - the best I've had in years. Highly recommended - and the museum is pretty good too!

I stopped with my family for a quick bite before returning to the museum. I ordered onion soup and it was absolutely delicious, with lots of cheese and bread included to fill you up. However, it seemed rather expensive at 10€! The staff were friendly and the service was quick, despite the restaurant being full. One main negative- they need... More

The restaurant at Branly Museum is a good choice for a lunch break after visiting Eiffel Tower and before tackling the Museum itself. It is an oasis of quietness for a short break to rest your feet and at reasonable food prices it will give you a chance to recover your weariness and senses before receiving another onslaught of visual...

Set in the garden of the wonderful Musee du Quai Branly, this is a perfect place to take a break from the Museum -- which is worth an extended visit, rest your feet and have a bite. It's cafe food, but good cafe food,
