A nice lunch close to Louvre Museum

I was walking in the surroundings of the Louvre Museum, in the cold afternoon of Paris, in December 2014. We tried to avoid the "tourist traps" of the the "isle de lá cite" and neighborhoods, so we stopped by this place. Their menu outside is in English, but it wasn't at all a tourist driven... read more

Stopped here on our 1st night in Paris. It was after 10pm and we were very tired and a little cranky. The food at this restaurant was wonderful and changed our moods immediately. We left full, happy, and very excited to begin our Persian holiday. My 9 yr had a bacon cheeseburger that was better than some steak house in... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

Not your typical 3 course set dinner that you find in every corner of paris. I had the duck confit and it was out of this world. The portion is big. Not the typical French tiny portion you might think. And the service was 5 stars

The bar was a 2 min walk from an apartment we stayed in, visited for drinks before retiring for the night. Very friendly staff with a well heated outside area. Wine was good, as was the service. Toilets were very clean.
