Le Café Marly – Paris, France | Restaurant Review

Location in the Louvre is the Only Reason To Go


Restaurant Category : French

Le Café Marly – Paris, France: Located at the Richelieu wing of the Louvre Palace, Le Café Marly is a restaurant museum, a pit-stop for tourists to see and be seen among the hip art crowd and the occasional celebrity. The place itself is a must-see; glass walls separate the café from the sculptures and artworks in the Louvre, the restaurant’s terrace overlooks the Cour Napoleon, and I.M. Pei’s famous glass pyramid is only meters away.

The décor is contemporary chic with its plush red and gold accents and the cuisine is traditional French, but they also serve Asian-inspired dishes and salads at certain hours. As can be expected, food and coffee here is a bit more expensive than the usual street cafes in Paris with brunch costing around 35€. I grabbed a club sandwich (15€) at the Le Café Marly while touring the Louvre and it was nothing special, needless to say—as ordinary as a Starbucks club sandwich. For the price, it was certainly not worth it.

I recommend dining at a more proper French restaurant in this city than this museum restaurant. Just visiting the Louvre is enough to whet anyone’s appetite and I suggest not ruining it with so-so food. I rate the Le Café Marly Somewhere between bombastic and not.

What I liked: The décor and view

What I didn’t like: The prices and the sandwich

Rating: Somewhere between bombastic and not
