We thought it was goi g to be an expensive place to have lunch since in was in the museum but it was reasonable. For 22 euros, you can choose between a starter & a main or a main and dessert. The portions were good and our sodas were larger than usual and half the price of other restaurants. Of... More

We visited the Musee d'Orsday on a Thursday, which is when they are open late. Our trip was in February, so we were lucky enough to finish our wonderful museum tour by dining in this wonderful restaurant without any reservations needed. It is beautiful inside and the service is wonderful and very friendly, especially considering we don't speak French, but... More

My parents and I found this restaurant inside Musée d'Orsay and we decided to have lunch here. Luckily we were the first or second customers in the line but after they open, there was a long line along the restaurant. So definitely recommended to be in the line before they open. I had a causal lunch course and chose Salmon... More

We are glad that you liked your lunch course, the setting of the room and the service. We hope that you had... More

The restaurant of the Musee d'Orsay is in a very spectacular room on the 2nd floor of the museum. I love the combination of modern furniture with ultra bourgeois surroundings. The service was also very warm and welcoming. However, we were there to eat and the standard lunch menu left much to be desired. My husband had the plat du... More

Better than average risotto and red wine revived us. All the desserts looked great--and the coffee superb.

After wandering around Musee d'Orsay I found this special gem of a place. What a wonderful way refresh and contemplate the beautiful building. Even the chairs were part of an exhibition. As to the food and service - so lovely I didn't want to leave

The dining room of the Musée d'Orsay is one of the most beautiful lunch (or dinner) spots in Paris. A long, high-ceilinged, light-filled cream and gold Beaux Arts salon overlooks the Seine and the right bank. A short menu of five starters and main courses at €22, and a third course for a bit more, is good value, but not... More
