Typical museum eatery

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... read 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!

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.

After a long visit in the museum we had a nice leisurely lunch - food was tasty, well plated and the coffee excellent. Our service was good and it was very comfortable. The only negative was watching them reuse bread from one basket to another, may be an acceptable french practice - ugh.

after a visit to the fabulous Musee Branly we saw this place in the garden. As it was a lovely sunny day we sat outside and had the best view of the Eiffel Tower. Food was pleasant and typical casual lunch place.

Being in such nice surroundings and inside the area of a really terrific museum, one expects something better. It is expensive, poor service and OK food. A pity the restaurant on the top floor of the museum was closed, otherwise we would have never fallen into this place. In a city like Paris, it is easy to find something better.

Arrived mid afternoon with my wife and 2 kids. Was met at the door by a semi friendly waiter who asked us to wait 2 minutes. Not a problem. Happy with that. Wife and kids went to the toilets (more to follow in those later). While waiting in walks what I think is a manager in a blue suit. He... More

We had coffee and 3 mini cakes for 8 euros. Pricey yes, but what do you expect from a restuarant linked to a museum, and less than 15 minutes walk to le tour effiel? So don't know why people are complaining about the cost. This is purely for the setting you can bring your own sandwich and sit by benches... More

The museum and surrounds are incredible but the restaurant is really not worth it. We had the most insipid coffee, complained and got two more of the same. What a shame.

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
