Took lunch menu and the food quality and taste are something average. Ok for one time if we do not have any choice.

Tourist trap. Steak tartare is obviously a pre-packaged meal disguised as « freshly prepared ». No visible egg and no controllable ingredient whatsoever, sauce tartare was much too sweet and here again another avatar of industrially processed foods. With half a bottle of Pellegrino charged at 5€...More

In fairness we only stopped in for a drink but I paid €8 for a coke in hindsight I should have just drank beer! Lovely atmosphere and kind staff though

A historical restaurant just behind the Louvre on rue St. Honoré. In olden days King's advisers used to come and eat there --- now you can do the same... It looks simple but we had a good service. All dishes are fresh, nice choice and...More

My wife and I stopped in for lunch after our Louvre visit. We each had salmon and risotto. The salmon was overcooked and the risotto had too much cream in it, which made it inedible. When we asked for butter for our bread the server...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

Le Ragueneau restaurant in Paris two steps from the Louvre and the Palais Royale is one of the literature���s most historic eateries. This is the location of the restaurant of Cyprien Ragueneau, 17th century chef, poet and great friend of Moliere and others, after whom Rostand named Cyrano de Bergerac���s friend. The new incarnation is a chic, extremely French brasserie in warm tones of red and ochre with brass chandeliers, absolutely stuffed with Ragueneau-related art. Vincent Sitz, formerly of Taillevent, offers snacks and teas on the ground floor, more complete meals in the elegant first floor dining room, a modern menu inspired by Ragueneau���s dishes, braised lamb en cocotte, salads, entrecotes, and especially tarts. The wine list is devoted exclusively to wines from Bergerac.
