I went there to have lunch before going to the exhibition at Grand Palais. We were escorted to our table which was located near the bar. The waiter might see my face so she asked if I would like to change the table. I chose the new one at the sofa area but she told us that table was for... More

One of our favorite restaurants in Paris (we are Brits but have lived here for six years). Had lunch there with my family on New Year's Day - food was as ever superb, especially my ris de veau. Service was ok, though our desserts (some hot) were left waiting on an adjacent table for several minutes and it was only... More

If you come to Paris you should visit the Grand Palais for art and installations and if you get hungry, the Mini Palais is a lovely place to dine. The food is French and the service with a smile and very attentive and that is a bit unusual for Paris is excellent and very attentive.

This is a great place to impress that someone special or as a treat. The service is outstanding. Food excellent, the little cheese popovers they bring with the bread are so good. The wine selection, glass or bottle, are excellent. The presentation and quality are good, the down side is the price tag suits the location.

Everything in this restaurant was beyond perfect. From decor to service this place gets it right. We were sat at the bar and were waited on by a very helpful and knowledgable bartender. He was very polite/professional and happy to answer any questions we might have about the menu. The Onion Soup here was not only served with pomp but... More

The "mini palais" is a fabulous place to visit. I would go again just for the venue! Just splendid! The food matches the venue as well, the menu is created by top chefs and it's a délice! The selection of wine will suit most demanding guests. Service style is typique French style and could be the only downside at times,... More

The waiters were very professional even though very young. The place is beautiful. The food was great, very well worked and it was a pleasure. Highly recommend the sea bass with cucumber jelly.

This is truly a partisan restaurant and a great place to take a date. The food was wonderful and the wine delicious. I was on a date with a French restauranteur who if very particular. Service was great and it was very intimate for conversation. It is in a mini palace so the ceilings soar but the environment was still... More

Modern restaurant within the Grand Palais. The atmosphere was relaxing and chill, and the service was friendly, competent and generous. The menu was modern and french, with some asian inspiration and flavours. It was all perfectly put together :) ¨
