After an exhausting day in Paris, we came across this cosy bistro. We immediately got a seat and did not need to wait long to be served. Highly recommended!

My wife and I and two old friends from the S.F. Bay area popped in to the Cafe after a full morning of seeing the sights in that area. The staff was gracious in finding us a stop even though it was late and they were closing soon to prep for the dinner crush. We all enjoyed the mushrooms and... More

We stayed in an apartment a block away for three weeks in Sept/Oct and enjoyed our visits to Cafe des Musees. The new owner, Serge, is working hard to improve on what is already a great place to eat or have a drink and snack. He was having it repainted while we were there and it looks really nice now....

A classic french bistro in the heart of the Paris Marais area, you can't go wrong both in terms of friendly service, romantic and cosy atmosphere, and classic good food. You will feel like you are Picasso, observing near the artist's museum the mix of Parisian "regulars" and tourists - in couples, in families or with freinds. I recommend the... More

I live locally and have taken many overseas visitors here over the years. Sadly a recent change in management has brought a decline in service and quality. We had to ask several times for bread and water, waited ages for our wine and waited more than an hour for our dishes, and when they arrived they lacked finesse, especially the... More

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.
