Ok, but nothing more

Cafe has a small lunchtime menu, with only one choice for children, and chicken nuggets and chips! It was quite expensive, food was ok, but found nothing wonderful or terrible

great location inside the garden of the museum though very poor service... they really need to care more... i was tempted to give an even lower scoring (as definitely they seem to be under staffed and not coordinated at all ie lack of mgt), but the rest of the place is nice. terrace is enjoyable with view on the eiffel...

The museum is nice but the café Branly is very disapointing: Quality for money is poor, the floor management is quite strange: no sir you can't install yourself in this empty area we'll not serve there... so we had to wait for a spot in th ecrowded area... You can find better food and service not so far, i think... More

Musee du Quai Branly is a marvelous museum. And, we really enjoyed the exhibition on Tatoos. Marvelous. Marvelous. Marvelous. And for only Euro 11.00 each. The Cafe Branly is also a marvelous, wonderful SETTING in which to eat. Intelligently designed to face the street on the residential street on the OTHER side of the Musee which does not face the...

We saw the café and thought. Okay, a little pricier since it belongs to the museum, but okay the ambiance was nice. Boy, we were wrong. Horrible ceaser salad (couldn't even eat it), small (and I mean tiny) pasta < and 2 other entrees that I can't remember> all for the glorious price of 70 Euro. This is not our... More

We stopped here for lunch before looking at the Musee de Quai Branly and were not disappointed. The service was friendly and efficient, the garden setting was amazingly landscaped – hard to imagine you were in the middle of Paris – and the view of the Eiffel Tower was stunning. Delicious, nouveau quisine meals (Parmentier duck and Pavé de Saumon}.... More

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.
