We were looking for a highly recommended place for lunch following our visit to the Louvre. The charming Louise herself waited on us--no problem with the English language. The food was delicious and the service excellent. The desserts may have been the best part. Highly...More

We had a great dinner of traditional french food at Louise Cafe near the Louvre. Louise greets you and will recommend food and wine for you. We chatted in half French/half English about our families and her daughter makes all the desserts. We had beef...More

I've been eager to come back after my trip 8 years ago. I can't believe it has been that long. I'm happy to say that the quality at Louise Cafe has not changed. I was in town for business and stopped in for a meal....More

Found this gem via Google maps which has very good reviews. This place did not disappoint. I had coq au vin and my husband had beef bouginnone which portion sizes were not huge and very tasty. I found this the perfect proportion as we are...More

This restaurant is near the Louvre but on a street that is not too busy. That makes sitting outdoors less noisy. It is reasonably priced and the food is fine. I am amazed at the other reviews that raved about it. We were a group...More

Our family of 8 found this little gem through google maps while we were at the Louvre. We didn't want to eat an expensive and most likely mediocre restaurant at the museum. This restaurant was a short walk from the museum and totally worth the...More

We asked the hotel concierge where can we go with kids for an unsophisticated dinner. The place is nice, on a street corner surrounded by four other restaurants. The menu is rather simple (few options) and no kids menu. The staff was friendly. Some things...More

Best meal in Paris so far! Absolutely charming cafe with by far the best ravioli I've ever tasted! Two teens and two adults and we loved it. Great hot chocolate as well. Would like to go again before we leave. Lilly was so kind.

Ravioli with cream sauce was awesome!!!! Staff was friendly and kind. It was so great lunch. 추천메뉴를 받아 주문하였는데, 그 중 크림소스 라비올리가 정말 맛있었다. 진한 크림소스와 고소한 치즈가 정말 최고!!!! 우연히 들어갔는데 맛있는 점심식사를 하게되서 정말 기분이 좋았다. 주인도 엄청 친절친절해서 편안한 마음으로 식사를...More

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighborhood oozes luxury. The grand arches along
Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front of
decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is lined
with the world’s best jewelers and their glittering
window displays. Every other establishment has someone
to open the door for you or park your car. You can
spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops or

These days most restaurants have gluten free choices on their menus. However, I don't remember them being individually noted on the Louise Café menu. If they aren't listed, I feel absolutely certain that they will be very... More
