Lourve restaurant - budget - late night

Going to lourve on a Wed evening (heard it is less packed). Will want to grab something to eat after touring. Looking to be budget friendly, nothing over the top.

Just looking for suggestions, which I can take and look for a menu on line to see if we can all eat there.

Any help is appreciated.

  1. Menus on line are not standard here especially for budget places. Rouge is not bad can your bunch afford oysters

      Understand about menus online
      Biggest problem is that daughter dosent eat meat and Im not into veg. None of us do oysters. And want a bit more than a snack. We are from US and used to having a larger late night meal.

        Sorriest, it's Louvre.
        You are building an extensive list of no-no's.
        If you absolutely cannot streamline your long list of preferences and restrictions in terms of food, place, time, budget, food, food, you may consider eating safely and non-disastriously instead of eating well.
        Le Grand Colbert is not far from the Louvre, has a lovely décor, very ince service, non-pathetic food from largish Brasserie-size menu. Best of luck.

    2. Here is the link to The Louvre's website. There are several restaurants in the museum itself that might be a good option for you.

      1. Bistrot des Victoires on the rue Vrillière between the Palais Royal gardens and the place des Victoires... 10-minute walk... amazing value!

          Good direction Parnassien, Palais Royal gardens.
          Prompted me to recall that A Casaluna just across it on the rue de Beaujolais has quite nice Corsican food (with a good variety for belferdad's big bunch), 18.50 for two dishes, 23.50 E for three.

        2. The extensive menu at Chez Flottes, available on line, should satisfy everyone. Don't miss the Aligote. Situated across from the Concorde metro.

            I have trouble putting the words "budget" and "Flottes" in the same thought.

              Agreed; pleasant enough, but not the bargain basement.

          2. Cafe du Trésor, just off the rue Vielle du Temple in the 4th. Open very late, very good late night menu, cool atmosphere and wonderful outdoor patio.
