Really wanted to like Le Mini Palais - the setting inside the Grand Palais was attractive: one large contemporary room with very high ceilings. My salmon was supposed to be on bed of braised fennel but onions were substituted without warning. Several items on menu not available. Pricy.

The restaurant is in an awesome location overlooking the inside of the Grand Palais with ice skating rink. Stylish bar and atmosphere inside the restaurant. Ordered 2 dishes and desserts. Desserts were good yet one of the main dishes (pheasant with foie gras filling) overcooked. The place tries to position itself as fine dining and charges accordingly, this should not... More

Indeed ! Great location, just by the Grand Palais, one of the greatest building In Paris. The restaurant remains opened to service until late (around midnight or so), the food is very decent without being striking, but i have taken people there for late business diners and everyone always ended happy. If you are enjoying a late night walk In... More

We ambled down to Le Mini Palais when the Relais de l'Entrecote was too long a queue, and this turned out to be a wonderful surprise! Food was great (though obviously different cuisine from the steak house), staff smiley and efficient, fun arty decor. Can't believe it wasn't busier!

The mini Palais is a beautiful looking and relatively trendy restaurant located in the Grand Palais of Paris, close to the Champ Elysées. Built for the 1900 universal exhibition the Grand Palais is a monumental building typical of the Old Europe industrial period worth visiting. The restaurant has a relatively chic atmosphere albeit noisy. A place to see and to... More

Our experience was a bit disappointing regarding the reputation of the place.The food is nice and well cooked at rasonable prices so close to Les Champs Elysées.But there is much room for service improvement.It is surprising that such numerous staff are not better trained and managed.

we went there for lunch as we were advised about the place. this was a nice idea. You cannot find the restaurant by yourself if you do not know it is there. it is located at the back of the Grand Palais, you have to go up the steps to enter the restaurant. Once you are there, if weather is... More

On this Roman-style terrace, you certainly won't be disappointed by atmosphere, food or service. I had great dinner here. The ambition of this restaurant is exemplified by their on-point waiters, who were very accomodating at all times.
