This was a really beautiful restaurant, in a perfect location in Paris. I sat on the outdoor terrace. Although I spoke English and could not speak a lot of French, the staff were only too happy to help and offer English-speaking waiters as well. Courtesy was top notch and food was delivered in good time, and all my courses were... More

Once again in my 2nd day in Paris I chose Steak Tartar and was pleased. Very pleased in fact. Though not as exceptional as Le Bistro du 15eme, still very very good. You probably need to ask for added extra accouterments but the quality was exceptional. The service was slow but friendly and I think that I may have been... More

We all know the French are a little pretentious and the girls on reception were definitely that but once you walked into the restaurant you are surrounded by the opulence and grandeur of the restaurant and the pretence stops there. There is a wonderful terrace and you sit under the huge columns of this most magnificent and historic building. I... More

Both times I've eaten lunch here, I really enjoyed it. The food was very good, the service attentive and friendly, and the outside dining area is really delightful. I'll definitely return on my next visit to Paris.

On our trip to Paris for the day to see the Rodin Museum we lucked out and found a restaurant, Mini Palais, that was convenient to our second stop at the Tuileries Garden. The restaurant can easily be overlooked in that it is housed in a official looking building without a name on it. There is a vertical stanchion outside... More

Really enjoyed the food, and we had an accommodating and lovely waiter who was very patient with our lack of French culinary vocabulary. In particular, I enjoyed the Mackerel starter, which came with a horseradish foam that kind of blew my mind a bit. It was also nice to see some advanced culinary techniques at a reasonable price. Well worth... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our first lunch in Paris in this nicely appointed restaurant. A friend who lives in Paris recommended it and they were right on the mark.
