Located on a pretty corner of Paris’ trendy Marais district, Cafe des Musees is a typically stylized French bistro with atypically good, modern French bistro cuisine. The lunch menu, at only €13.50, is a two-course delight and an absolute steal, while the €20 prix fixe dinner offers the freshest, most flavoursome and affordable bistro cuisine in the area. Dinner a la carte staples include wild mushrooms cooked with escargots served in a bubbling hotpot, a perfectly cooked entrecote with a creamy bearnaise sauce and hand cut frites, and chunky, marbled steak tartare. Its prompt, friendly service is a rarity for similar Parisian eating establishments, and here the staff offer friendly banter and helpful wine suggestions. When the weather is warm, the handful of tables out on the terrace are perfect for see-and-be-seen dining. Cafe des Musees is also open for a coffee and croissants in the mornings, and everyday for lunch and dinner, making this a fantastic all-day dining spot. A must-visit French bistro if you’re in the neighborhood. Bookings advised.
