Dining room Rivoli in Paris

rivoli-1.jpgWhen you are in the centre of Paris, close to Louvre, and you would like to eat quickly and cheap, then you can go to the Rivoli.fr dining place. This typical self-service canteen is located on the street rue de Rivoli number 206, in front of the metro exit station Tuileries.
Details about the opening hours, prices and exact meals offer can be found on the official website www.rivoli.fr. Paristep offers you mainly personal experience with this dining place.
The canteen has an ideal location in the very centre of Paris on the favourite metro line n.1. The advantage is also a lot of space (what is suprising in Paris), number of seats and if it is not crowded, then also a fastfood speed of the service. We We must praise a very rich offer of quite fresh salads, standard offer of drinks including wines and the possibility to take a jar with water and ice. The cheap coffee prepared by experienced barmen from the freshly morivoli-2.jpgulded coffee beans has also a very good taste.
This canteen is visited by organized trips from all over the world, especially from Russia and South European countries, so if you are "lucky" to be there with two organized trips, it becomes quickly crowded. You can also notice the long servicing of this place, the interior is used, there is a lack of comfort, service or higher gastronomic level. Aften being opened the canteen functionned also the canteen of employees for the surrounding companies, today it is visited especially by organized trips to Paris.
I would recommend Rivoli.fr as a cheap choice for lunch, where the ratio of prices and big portions is attractive. The quality of meals from the permanent offer can vary, but in a long term it keeps its stable level. Once again I underline the fact that except the outdoor possibility to buy baguettes, pieces of pizzas and sweets, it is a canteen which does not have much in common with the real Parisian atmosphere and charm.
