This place is one of the closest places to la louvre hence why I stopped by.
The owner stands outside at tries to lure people in. Doing his job I guess.
The Service, AWFUL - waiter was unpleasant and was scratching himself in all the places you don't want to see your waiter scratching himself, sneezing and coughing into his hands... and never washed his hands once.
The Food - pretty terrible... especially for the prices you pay in there.
Drink - a glass of Fanta was 6 euro with no refills.... how do you enjoy that?
Terrible Terrible.... AVOID IT
its a shame this place doesn't go out of business. Lot of foot traffic I guess.

This may happen to many people, as we walked out of the Louvre, hungry and tired, we stopped for a quick bite to eat, and needless to say, the food was not good, we had a nicoise salad and a croque monsieur, and, I cant say it was horrible but I do not recommend this place, unless you go for a quick coffee or drink, and even that was not good

Stopped here after visiting the Louvre, made of mistake of getting talked in by a waiter.

The food was inedible, even a simple baguette was like chewing into stone, my wifes ceaser salad, had a no discript sauce and bitter sauce on it and about a tin of sweetcorn.

Waiters were miserable, give it a miss and walk on past

Sit curbside, get the Cesar salad (which is very filling and very good), and enjoy the people watching next to Pont Neuf, Pont des Arts and the Louvre. Maybe a little over-priced, but friendly service and the food is fine. And when you are done you are right in the heart of everything. We ate lunch here a couple of times while visiting Paris and enjoyed it on both occasions.

Luckily we hadnt read the reviews on here, before going to this cafe! As we are vegetarians (who sometimes eat fish), it is difficult to find food in paris that we can eat, luckily they had a nicois baguette that sounded quite pleasant! the sandwiches were ?7.40 each, however when they arrived I couldnt believe how big they were! The bread was delicious and the waiter was ok, the tuna was a bit odd being made with salad dressing. My only complaint was the price of diet coke being double the price of a take away diet coke!! Other than that, it is in a lovely location and it wasn't as bad as some of these reviews!!!!
