Dreamy and elegant

Le Mini Palais looks as if a French Imperial palace met the Mediterranean on a curious midnight summer walk. Absolutely gorgeous place, with prices that are surprisingly low considering the overwhelming sense of elegance the venue exudes. I look forward to returning during the daytime, as it... read more

Le Mini Palais looks as if a French Imperial palace met the Mediterranean on a curious midnight summer walk.

we went for dinner with some friends, one of whom was a parisian local who made the booking. as others have mentioned, the terrace is amazing. dominated by huge columns and a sky-high ceiling, the terrace is a sought-after spot. unfortunately they have a policy of no groups larger than six people, so as a table of seven we missed...

I like a cocktail and I am not scared to part with quite a bit of cash to enjoy one. So when my friends told me about the Mini Palais I had to put it on the must do list during our holiday. When we arrived I explained that we would like drinks on the terrace. Whilst being taken to... More

Beautiful place for an afternoon drink - cocktails delightful and setting is wonderful. Discovered the terrace at the back of the grand palace and stayed for an hour - very peaceful not busy at all.

Probably not a place I would have gone to without a recommendation. We enjoyed a glass of champagne and lunch on the terrace in beautiful sunshine. The staff seemed disorganised at first, it's a very large and busy place. We wanted to eat on the terrace but they kept trying to get us to sit inside. We persisted and after... More

Being a bit short of time I stopped by the Mini Palais Restaurant and was lucky to get a table on their beautiful terrace. My starter (polo carpaccio) and my main (steak tartare with fries) were both fresh and very tasty, the service was friendly and fast, and price-value is fair for Paris and the location. A nice touch is... More

Honestly speaking I go there just for the amazing terrace. The restaurant is good especially if you are looking for a romantic dinner. French modern cuisine, food is good and prices are a bit expensive. Wine especially. Service: it depends how works. The other night we had to wait a lot and ask more than once the same thing to...

The venue is stunning. Within the same building as The Grand Palais - a proper old beautiful historic building with columns. Service was slow, food was very average. It's all about the location - it does feel very classy.

This place is first of all a beautiful site. A long outdoor hall bordered by high columns give you the impression of having lunch in a roman temple. There is a light wind and enough shade to feel some coolness even during the Pak of temperatures we had in Paris last week. Food is good and can even be refined.... More
