Voted best Boeuf Bourguignon (beef wine stew) by a national newspaper, and I agree, it's an absolute must. The other dishes were delicious too, the service prompt and kindly, and the prices (25-30 euro for a menu) quite reasonable for le Marais. Good location for...More

I'll start with the positive. The beef bourguignon was delicious. Tasty, meaty, tender and great mash. However, the turbot was tasteless and a very small portion for the price. My daughter had steak which was extremely gristly. I felt the food was expensive for what...More

Café des Musées has all the allure of a classic bistro, with an Art Déco window and exposed wood finishing, but the menu has a touch of the modern about it, with far more of a focus on vegetables than most bistros show. Alongside classic...More

splendour. This neighbourhood unites a rich mix of
