The Bistrot Benoit Under the Pyramid


Under the Pyramid, in the heart of the Louvre, the Bistrot Benoit welcomes visitors all day long in a cozy atmosphere typical of Parisian bistros.

An authentic bistro in the heart of the museum

At the Bistrot Benoit under the Louvre Pyramid, enjoy traditional French dishes like those on the menu at the famous Benoit restaurant—one of the last real bistros in Paris.

In a decor of zinc, brass, wood trim, and red velvet, waiters in white aprons and bow ties serve traditional French dishes with a contemporary twist: snail cassolette, pâté en croûte seasoned with thyme, frog quenelles, veal blanquette, rum baba, etc.
The wines are carefully selected and served “à la ficelle” (you only pay for what you drink).

The perfect place for a delightful break.
