After a few hours pacing up and down musée du Louvre, you feel exhausted, may be your feet hurt, you’re thirsty, hungry or both ?
There are several places under the pyramid or in Carousel shopping center where you can eat and quench your thirst, but none of these are to be remembered.
The best place to rest enjoying the view is café Marly, inside the Louvre palace, it is located at the end of Richelieu hallway.
It’s terrace, heated in winter, has an impressive view on Louvre and Pyramid. It will cost you between 30 or 60 euros for a meal, but you can also just have a drink.
If you prefer, you can go inside, and have tea or lunch in a cozy room.

Another option would be le Fumoir, facing Louvre Palace,
and next to Saint-Germain l’Auxerrois church.
