Lunch at swanky le Cafe Marly in Paris: Tomates Anciennes Burrata

One of our highlights in Paris is our late and long lunch at le Café Marly, a Costes restaurant that is known for glamour and the concept of dining to be seen. The elegant café restaurant is located under the arcades of the Louvre Palace with a majestic view to the glass pyramid.


It was scorching when we had our late lunch here. I ordered a glass of champagne of course and the ‘Tomates Anciennes Burrata’. When the food arrived, it was love at first sight. I mean, how can you not fall in love with this!?!?!

The tomatoes were so colourful and tasty, so I got curious and googled ‘tomates anciennes’ and then I switched to translate. It means ‘heirloom tomatoes’ or ‘heritage tomatoes’. I love tomatoes, I always buy them every week. They are a staple at home. The burrata (buffalo mozzarella) on the other hand was heaven. So creamy, the cheese melted on my tongue. This has got to be a 4.7 stars out of 5.

As for Bru she ordered chicken cesar’s salad. She said it was good.

Now, our waiter was quite a cutie—he’s got that Ronaldo (the Portuguese footballer) look going on but taller. We told him IT IS SO HOT WE ARE MELTING! He was like—‘Oh yeah, you tell me, I am melting here as well!’ he said that with a smirk on his lips. So that response ladies and gentlemen led us to the conclusion that he is gay =)

We had a grand and fabulous time sitting here at the café, talking about Paris, our careers in the Netherlands and life in general while enjoying the beautiful view of Louvre Palace and the pyramid, which brings me to mind the Da Vinci Code book I read several years ago. I would not be surprised if Mary Magdalene was Jesus’ bride and they had children. The possibility is out there...

Anyway, this was a nice respite from the burning temperatures outside. I pity the poor waiters who had to go through a whole day’s job in the sizzling heat clad in long sleeves and suits. OK, we did tip.


Hi there. Bienvenue! Sante! =)
