This used to be a sure bet on a restaurant-deserted stretch of Rue de Turenne, opposite Galerie Maria Lund. You'll hide there from the rain, the corner space warm in atmosphere - and in the very good, authentic French food you were guaranteed... The open grill at the entrance is still there, the setting is still the same. But the... More

My husband and I wanted a casual dinner with steak and frites in the Marais and found exactly what we were looking for at Cafe des Musees. My husband started with the salad and I had the soup de jour and they were both great. Then we both had the rib steaks with Bearnaise sauce and frites. Everything was perfect.... More

We were here in a party of 11 in July and the table had been booked in April and yet they sat us downstairs in the basement which wasn't very good. Between us all we had a mixture of feelings about the food, the service was poor and even if they were busy they should have had more staff working.... More

I have been dining at the Cafe des Musée once or twice a year for about ten years. Until about three years ago it was just excellent,specialising in slow cooked ragouts type dishes.Then it changed hands and the quality of the food dropped a bit and it got some unenthusiastic reviews which I suspect were in part due to an...

Near Place Vosges. The Paris cafe / bistro style is so widely imitated in New York, all the real places - like Cafe des Musees - look like imitations thereof, when in fact it's the other way around! Tasty brunch - I had the duck - on a recent Sunday. Service seemed a bit distracted; also, you are paying for... More

My Wife, two adult Daughters and I ate dinner at this restaurant based on recommendations. The good: the escargot, steak and chops. The not so good: A live, fair sized spider was in the lettuce that came with the salmon appetizer. Although we weren't charged for the salmon salad (which we did not eat), the restaurant made no further concessions... More

We stopped in for lunch after spending the morning at the Musee d'Orsay. The ambiance is French cafe/bistro with tables quite close to each other. I had a salade de cruditees which was wonderful.

Realizing there are less options for eating on a Sunday night in Paris, we chanced by here without a reservation. It was a cold wet night with heavy rain and people were lined up out of the door. We spoke to the waitress and ascertained that a table could be had in around 40 minutes, so we went for a... More

ABSOLUTELY TERRIBLE. If you like fried stewing steak, this is the place to go. If you served this steak in New Zealand you would be shot. It was full of fat and so tough, the type of steak you would use in a casserole at best. The waitresses were rude and snobby, we mentioned to one waitress that the steak... More

Staying in Le Marais

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
