My table at the front provided a perfect view of the kitchen, where I watched with admiration the dishes being prepared so expertly. I also could see the host welcome diners, greeting many by name and warm embraces. I loved this restaurant. Maybe five years I was there late night for a dessert, coffee and a cognac. This time I...

I was there years ago and it was one of my favorite haunts. I have recommended it to many who were also happy. Get the fois gras w haricot vert.

Cafe des Musees changed hands in August, and early signs aren't good. The atmosphere has been "brightened up" significantly, and while I'm sure some will like the fresh white paint and dramatically improved lighting, I'm afraid I'm not one of them. I prefer the older, less high gloss atmosphere of before. Similarly, the food is still good, but definitely not... More

An easy block or so from the Picasso, this restaurant serves typical brasserie food. The food was good, but not outstanding. Prices are typical.

The French ambiance of the restaurant was nice and so were most of the staff. But one of them tried to sell us a more expensive wine (winetrick). More important: the quality of the steak was'nt good. The chicken was better, the wine was ok.

We went to this restaurant on a Rick Steves' book recommendation. The wait staff was very insulting. We were handed a menu in English and sat at a table by the door when we arrived. Okay, but when I ordered dessert in English later, the waiter mimicked my english to the cook at the front kitchen and they shared a... More

Following a change of ownership over the summer, I have detected some disappointment with the new régime coming from old regulars. So I thought I would re-visit and see for myself. After all, any restaurant can experience teething troubles. Well, I thought when I arrived, on a Saturday night but early, at least the new owners haven't thrown the baby... More

We had been told that the Steak Frites was pretty good here in the Marais. First night we tried they were out of steak and we had a pork filet and a fish dish. Both were above average. Service okay. Second attempt a few nights later they had the steaks but they were the toughest and most raw beef we've... More

The Cafe des Musees has recently changed ownership, and many of the regulars are decrying the new regime. We had lunch there prior to a trip to the Musee Carnavalet, and enjoyed every mouthful. We selected the daily formule, which was salmon tartare, followed by a wonderful breast of duck with squash puree - both absolutely delicious and well prepared.... More

Perfect French meal from starter to desert with very good service and nice atmosphere. I will come back for sure when I'm back in Paris.
