We were at the Grand Palais for an exhibition, and looking round for somewhere to eat, found relatively little choice. The Mini Palais looked a bit forbidding, up a formidable flight of stairs and with a very formal reception desk. But the welcome was gracious,...More

It was a perfect summer night. Starting with an outstanding welcome from Rebecca at the reception, our table for 6 was ready without delay. ( Restaurant was full). From our arrival we have enjoyed every minute. Great food, I am too lazy to describe it...More

To start with the positive aspects: very nice location, good food (not superb, though) and nice wines. But: slow and not very friendly service as they know you won't be back. We had a reservation but we had to change table 3 times (!) because...More

This is a delightful place to eat, whether inside or by the columns outside (weather permitting). The service is excellent and the food is a real delight. The presentation is exquisite. The brioche is to die for. It may not be the cheapest of places...More

Stopped in here for lunch after a couple of different people recommended it. Glad we did, the food was amazing and the atmosphere was wonderful. It's absolutely stunning sitting out on the terrace enjoying your surrounds over good food!

Just came here - after a visit to the Musée de l’Orangerie just after arriving in Paris - for a break and a snack. Had the cheese and the charcuterie boards and a glass of Chablis and sat outside. Nice place.

We stopped for a Sunday afternoon lunch and while the restaurant was busy, we didn't need a reservation nor did we have to wait. We first sat out on the patio, but cigarette smoke forced us to move. Smoking in restaurants is still legal in...More
