In July a lot of good Paris restaurants are not overflowing with customers. Time for the Brits to get over before the August holidays arrive! We had a very agreeable lunch at the Cafe des Musees, a restaurant that used to be great for many...years, then was merely good, then went off a bit, and now seems to be back in decent form. The starters were top - fish soup and tomato salad with blue cheese. Avoiding beef on a hot day, the squid and clams main (clams in particuar) were worth turning up for, as was the creme caramel dessert with hazelnuts. Jolly good.More

Went here for my sister’s birthday dinner while in Paris. We went for the beef bourguignon and the steak, and both were excellent (the beef was truly exceptional!). We then had some of the tarts for dessert which was just as good! Very good option...for an authentic French bistro experience without being too expensive.More

Got there and the atmosphere was good. Ordered the beef bourguignon thinking the price would probably be worth it for the hype it seems to have. Had a nice but overpriced salad for a starter. With the first bite i had into the beef bourguignon,...i was frankly disgusted. I don't use this word very much, because i reserve for things that deserve it, but it was truly rancid. It tasted identical to when i accidentally had a splash of bin juice into my mouth when cycling over a puddle created from a knocked over bin. I was hungry, so i managed to bare on by combining it with the small dollop of mashed potato that came with it, but this only lasted for about 10% of my way into the beef bourguignon. I tried to power on anyway for the protein, but with every bite it became maybe around twice as unpalatable and made me very nauseous, so i had no choice but to stop. After asking for the bill, with literally only 4 other people still in the restaurant, i was waiting for 20 minutes, still for no one to come along. So i went to the counter to ask for the bill, to which they gave me an embarrassed sorry for forgetting. Rubbish experience. There are so many other scrumptious places around, so keep looking and go to one of those instead.More

When this place boldly states it has the best boeuf bourguignon in Paris; take it seriously . We ordered this signature dish and a big bubbling delicious pot was placed in front of us. Was truly excellent . We saw other dishes arriving that also...looked good . The escargots in particular looked and smelt amazing. Desserts were fine. Service was great.More

Excellent bistro. Needed an evening meal while on a business trip. This place was recommended by members of our local team and did not disappoint. Between us we had 3 different beef based meals and all were excellent. We were served by the delightful Juliette...who was friendly, patient and wore some excellent shoes. Will certainly come back next time I’m in Paris.More

Super meal last night. Fabulous scallop carpaccio to start then ribeye and chips for main. Really full of flavour. Great atmosphere and very busy. The house special was beef Bourguinon - none of my party tried it but it smelt amazing. Would definitely return. Remember...to book!More

Amazing food and ambience. Stumbled across this restaurant. The beef bourguignon was superb, the meat was so tender. Best I’ve ever tasted.

After much research (so many amazing places in Paris to try), my partner and I decided to spend one of our nights in Paris dining at this bistro. The experience was amazing and we cannot recommend this place enough. The wait staff were very patient...with us as English-only speakers, the ambiance was lovely and the bœuf bourguignon was out of this world. The best meal we had on our entire 5-week holiday throughout both England and Paris. Excellent value for money as well with the 3-course meal option.More

I like their steak tartar - if you like the chef to mix all the ingredients and season you need to tell the waiter as such (“préparé”)If you like mixing /seasoning yourself that is the de fault setting. Their sauce has... More
