I had lunch here with my wife. The view on the surrounding prairie parkland, old Parisian apartment houses, and Eiffel Tower was lovely. But the food was at best mediocre and the service was the worst I have experienced over the 12 months I have lived in France. Additionally, the prices were quite high for the food provided, and there... More

I had lunch here after spending much longer at the museum than expected. The staff were very friendly and attentive, and the food stock standard. A bit pricy for the portion sizes in my opinion. I had the salad, very simple but fine, and sparkling water for 20 euros.

Attached to the museum, this is clearly a popular spot. The food -- I had stir-fried chicken with veg -- is good, the ambience agreeable. An unhappy child somewhat spoiled the mood, but on the positive side: there was no background music. More restaurants should adopt that policy

Like others we had a very mixed experience with our lunch. The cafe was understaffed despite it being a busy Saturday. The chicken dish we ordered was fine but the flank steak was a tiny portion cooked well-done despite being ordered medium rare. The steak delivered to a neighboring table was much larger and cooked perfectly. I'm not sure if... More

We waited 20 minutes to get a table for three at 1:00 in the afternoon. Once we sat down, we knew why there'd been a line. Great view of garden with the Eiffel Tower in the background. Friendly service, and delicious food. Fair priced lunch menus. We got out of there paying 64 euros for 3 good meals (no wine.).... More

This litte restaurant looks inviting and ideally located after visiting the musee Branly. Have a coffee - just don't bother with the food. We got a table, the place was not even that busy. I had asked our waiter whether it was possible to order some food and be out in 30 mins, and he said 'oh absolutely'. That was... More

The Cafe Branly looks good, but it does not live up to its standards. At lunchtime we were told that the time to wait was u to 30 minutes. Quite annoying when you notice it is the only place to eat in this extensive museum. We came back at teatime and were served lukewarm tea. Black tea will not get... More

Crowded at lunch so we had to wait. Very nicely appointed with lots of light and space between tables. You could have a full lunch or something lighter. Recommended!

Hadn't been back to this place for museum+lunch for several years but had the same experience. It's a place to grab a bite if you need replenishment while touring a great museum. If you can wait, you can probably get a better meal in the neighborhood, although this is a very touristy area. Servers were very nice and professional but... More

If you are heading to the Musee Branly do yourself a favour and bring a bag lunch and sit outside in the garden instead of giving this place your money.
