Le Grand Colbert

French in Louvre & Les Halles

This former workers’ cafétéria transformed into a fin de siècle showcase is more relaxed than many similarly restored restaurants and is a convenient spot for lunch after visiting the neighbouring covered shopping arcades or cruising the streets at night (last orders: midnight).

Don’t expect gastronomic miracles (despite Diane Keaton's claims in Something's Gotta Give), but portions are big and service is friendly. Sunday ushers in a pricier €45 menu.
