Delicious delicate dishes. The mini Palais is situated in Le Grand Palais! Has a wide selection of fine dishes. The carpaccio St. Jaques was superb. Has a wide selection of wine, too.

For a bunch of eight, not pricy, and not overrated, we had the perfect celebracion at the Grand Palais. The large Room was perfectly arranged and iluminated to feel cozy and warm!. The menú was the standard every day list, with a few main courses that suited everybody. .....we had an excepcional night in great company!!

My one really special meal in Paris and it was nearly perfect. Eating in the Grand Palais is pretty great to start. The room itself was enormous but the setting very comfortable. Beautiful plaster busts, lighting, views. The food, especially the seafood dishes we had and most especially the scallop carppaccio (sp?) were light, subtle and yummy. Of course the... More

Located at Le Grand Palais, the room is superb and offers a nice frame for a lunch. It is actually a very modern brasserie in a historic building. Staff is friendly, service efficient,; quality really good. Simply ideal for a stop after walking down the Champs Elysées, or before a visit to the Museum as was the case for us.... More

We were looking for somewhere easy to reach, serving good food at a reasonable price (for Paris!) and we found it here. It is right next to the tube stop at the bottom of the Champs-Elysées. We didn't have a reservation but arrived fairly early (7pm) and decided to sit outside under the columns with the heaters. Service was relaxed... More

We came here on recommendation by a local friend, but left not super impressed. First of all, this place definitely has the looks. Located inside Grand Palais, with a terrace looking out. I can imagine this place to be a nice place for breakfast, lunch, or tea/coffee when the weather's nice. But that's not enough for a good restaurant, right?... More

This is a beautiful place and I wish I could recommend it to you. Unfortunately I advise you to avoid it if you don't want irritating service which starts with 1. having to wait a very long time to be served, 2. then another long wait to have the order taken, 3. then to have a waiter, who is not...
