Our first night in Paris and we were tired and hungry. This was a short walk from our hotel. We arrived before they opened for dinner but were happily greeted and seated and offered wine. Dinner was delicious! The place was completely full by the time we left. If there weren't so many choices in the Marais neighborhood to try... More

The restaurant was recommended to us by a local whose parents often frequented the restaurant because of the quality and service. The staff very kindly let us make a late booking and they managed to squeeze us in before their busy time . We had excellent service and the food was indeed very tasty and fresh.

Typical french cuisine. Wine is a bit expensive. Worth visiting if you are in the Marais neighborhood.

Everything we wanted to experience in Paris food wise. Excellent. Service was very professional and accommodating. We liked it enough to return twice.

My wife and I were among the first to arrive for dinner. Pleasant setting in a section of Paris well worth an after dinner stroll. Food and service were fine but. Bread arrived from the baker for their signature mushrooms stuffed with sausage in garlic butter well after the dish was finished. A waste and very disappointing.

One of our favorite places to eat when we visit Paris is Cafe des Musees. We last dined there in May 2016. What a disappointment! Evidently ownership has changed which showed in the quality of the food.

A favorite of locals and tourists, near galeries and the Picasso Museum. Cosy atmosphere--in fact, elbow to elbow most nights. Classic meat dishes appear to be their specialty. Good wine, fair prices.

Staying in Le Marais

Neighbourhood 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 splendour. This neighbourhood 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.
