The motto – “Eat in a colorful market-place atmosphere” – is certainly meant to be taken literally in Mövenpick Marché restaurants. Marché is a totally FRESH concept in dining pioneered by Mövenpick in Europe in 1983.

Marché ( pronounced ‘Mar-Shay’) is an extravaganza – a hive of culinary and market activity where the only constant is change. It abounds with color from the mountains of produce, baked goods, meats, fish, pastries, fruits and other foods. Colorful tiles, flagstone flooring, bright awnings and ceiling hangings, barrels, baskets and wagons create the flavour of a bustling European market.

Marché opens its doors every day at 11.00am and virtually everything you see in the way of raw foods, prepared foods and ingredients are brand new. All breads and pastries are fresh baked continuously. Wherever possible, produce, meats and seafood are fresh from the market. Pasta is prepared right in front of your eyes.

Located at the ground floor of The Curve in Mutiara Damansara, Marche provides a totally different dining experience .. at least for me it is. Imagine this, before entering the restaurant .. you are given a Marche market passport .. like this one here. Please do bear in mind that this little card actually cost you RM200 if you ever lose it. Well .. unless your food costs you more than RM200, it’s quite a painful experience. Once you’re in the restaurant, you will see something quite familiar, a marketplace of some sort. You can wander around different market stands and freely select whatever food that appeals to you. You get to see for yourself the freshness and quality of the produce; smell what’s baking in the ovens; hear the food sizzling; and watch the food being prepared right in front of your eyes, fresh from the “market”.


When you’re done choosing your food from the stations, more selection lies ahead. It’s time to choose which of our seating areas go with your mood of the moment. La Poterie is reminiscent of the pottery-making cottage, while the Bistro is typical of a Parisian tavern. The Swiss House has the flavour of a Swiss mountain inn.


You pick and eat all you can, most of the food are deliciously prepared. I guess the only thing about this is when it comes to the bill. Remember the market passport I meantioned? Yes, everytime you pick and choose the food the card is stamped. When you “check out” from the restaurant, you pay based on the stamps on your card. Let’s just say, not only the food is european … the price is also as such.

The key to the Marché concepts is the collection of market tables and stations where daily specials are prepared and cooked to other. Its fun to discuss techniques and recipes with the chef’s and you can actually buy raw ingredients and others to take home with you if you wish. (After all, Marché is a market too!) The extensive food offer includes Meat and Seafood Grills, Salads and Delicacies, Pizza, Rösti, Pasta, Roast, Sausages, Vegetables, Sushi, Bread & Pastries, Desserts, Coffee, Fresh Pressed Juice, Wines and Beers. New items are always cooking.

  1. maya ghazali Said,

    ambience in this place is no doubt very conducive and cosy….

    BUT i was unpleasantly surprised when i visited this place last weekend…. my family ordered our normal dishes and were surprised our dishes did not come with the usual side orders of salad and whipped potato…

    the miserable piece of fish/chicken/steak was served by itself…’s trully ‘amazing’ coz if we want sides, we have to buy them separately….

    and to make it worst, the price of the meal alone was not cheap….22rm for a small piece of dory??? hello!????! in other places, with that price, we can definitely get a small salad and some potato (fries or mashed)….

    if they want to adopt this concept, well…fine…but the least they could do is reduce the price of their main dishes….DUH!!!

    if this place wants want to make more money, by all means…but they will definitely lose more customers too…

    my family and I will definitely not come here again…and their staff is also saying, a lot of customers complain about this too….


  2. Dominic Said,

    May i know the price of the food in this restaurant? From the picture it seems that the food and view are great, any comment on my oppinion?


  3. bitchywitchy Said,

    um.. truth be told.. be pricing r outrageously expensive.. basically u have to budget about rm80-rm100per person…and that is to be on the safe side..unless u have a credit card to fall back on.. cause everything is counted separately… and the portions r not that fulfilling…anyways, i think its more worth it to eat any hotel buffet then go here … the food is great.. but cause of the pricing.. um… Never again!!!
