Café Marly – Eat In the Louvre
The Café Marly belongs to the Frères Costes who are building an empire of restaurants based on a very parisian atmosphere, on the same quality of food and a great range of plates. They can thus satisfy a lot of clients but without sacrificing the high-end cuisine they want to provide!
Even though the cuisine is quite modern, it is not too show-off and some of the creations of the Chef are to be tried, for example the chocolate cake, the croque-madame or the sole meunière, which are a great pleasure for your senses. The plates are well-presented, the tastes very light, but in the mouth, the flavors explode, and it is a real pleasure.
The service, although, can be disappointing if you consider the prices and the quality the restaurant yearns to. The waiters are very “snob”; you have to be clear on that from the beginning and don’t let them walk all over you! But anyway, if you came for the food, you won’t be disappointed because it is really worth going and trying!
But definitely, the top tip is the surrounding and the setting of the restaurant. The tables inside take place in the salons of Louis XIV, under the high arcades of a gallery: beautiful! About the terrace, the setting is even more beautiful because you have a nearly panoramic view on the Cour Napoléon and the Pyramid. When the weather is nice, you can enjoy a sunny breakfast or a drink, far away from the crowd, and it is divine!
We loved: the setting, obviously, and the food too which has quite a good standing. We advise you to go there, even if it is only for the setting!
