We stopped by with some friends after work and the place was ok. Initially we had to get our own drinks from the bar which i thought for those prices services was key. Nothing much here.

A good to be place with friends particularly in the evenings. The restaurant mainly serves drinks and plays light music to keep the spirits high. Prices are quite low compared to other restaurants nearby. Staff are attentive,but lacks the strength to serve the huge number of guests. They speak English.

I met up with a supplier at the restaurant. We'd eaten there before : it wasn't great, but convenient. I wasn't expecting much more this time. However, I didn't expect to have to leave half my main dish on the plate because it was so disgusting ! I chose an avocado/prawn starter : it was served as a sort of... More

Service average location great. Closes early like many La Defence bistros. It's aimed at the workers and not tourists.

Tried this bar near the Grand Arche on the way back from work.its unassuming and delivers on that assumption. Untidy, cigarette ends all over the floor - menus strewn around anywhere but on the tables. Basically a mess! Service was prompt but immediate payment required which was a bit impolite. The place was also infested with pigeons, which a similar... More

Let's make this brief. When I spend 70€ on lunch for one I want to be able to justify the expense. Food was pretty good and staff were courteous but still not worth what they charge for meals.

Excellent location in the middle of La Defense plaza, by the Agam basin. At lunch time the place is full of people working in the area. Before Malongo Cafe had a large offer of international specialties. To-day Globe Trotter Cafe gives only a limited choice of exotic dishes but food is correct, copious and well presented. Wine list is still... More

The staff is courteous. Food is ok, nothing special. The best part is the scenic view and also the staff ;) Should try meal of the day, they are pretty good in that. not very expensive.
