This terrace spans part of the length of the Tuileries, the part closest to the Louvre and within view of its iconic Pyramid. The main, or indoor, part of the restaurant is the on-premise restaurant of the Musée d'Arts Décoratifs that is just next to the Louvre but not part of it. Of course you don't have to pay for entrance into the museum to enjoy a meal or an afternoon coffee/tea/snack outside here. The terrace has tables and chairs set up on the inner courtyard side of the address which is where the Tuileries span. Where else but in Paris can you enjoy a salad or a coffee and slice of Tarte Tatin while gazing directly at the Louvre's Pyramid on one side and the vast expanse of the Tuileries gardens on the other?
- Outdoor Dining: "This terrace seating is on the inner courtyard side of the building's address. The restaurant is part of the Decorative Arts Museum but their terrace seating is actually all outdoors and uses part of the actual Jardin de Tuileries for its seating."
- Best for Outdoor Dining Because: When the weather is beautiful and you feel like gazing at the Louvre while you sip your iced coffee, this would be that ideal spot.
