Very good last minute option

We did not have reservations for lunch at MiniPalais and I was worried that we would not be able to get a seat but they graciously found a spot to fit us in. My husband and I were very tired having walked several miles that day already and just wanted something nice but simple. We found what we... read more

We had a full day activities in Grand Palais (science museum) and had been to Le Norte across the Avenue once too often. So it was s nice change to discover Mini Palais. Given the location, the deco, the presentation of the waiting staff, I must admit that the food was lacklustre. I always order the simplest thing to see... More

Dining outside on the magnificent terrace on a beautiful warm July evening was simply gorgeous. The surroundings are simply stunning - I would always sit outside! Decor is tasteful and elegant! Cocktails to start, followed by a delicious 3 course dinner! The highlight for me was dessert - cafe gourmand - 4 yummy mini desserts! My only negative comment is... More

We made a reservation 3 weeks in advance and we were told that tables on the outside terrace could not be guaranteed. As we really want an outside table, on the day we decided to turn up half hour earlier for drinks at the bar and to make sure we get a table outside as soon as the terrace was... More

We were a bunch of 10 friends who enjoyed the dinner at Le Mini Palais. We stayed inside, it was too cold for us to opt for a table on the terrace that gives on Le Petit Palais. The atmosphere of the restaurant was very nice. We tested various meat and fish meals and all of us were satisfied with... More

I visited this lovely restaurant with friends for dinner whilst visiting Paris last week. It was a very hot and humid evening and we requested to dine outdoors and although the large terrace was full, we were asked to wait for ten minutes so that we could be accommodated. I had written to them about a month prior to our... More

Went for our wedding anniv. Phoned couple of hours before to book a table on the terrace. Car valet so no problems for parking (10€). Very nice setting. A few things were not on the menu and the internet menu is not up to date. Food was very good and we had no problem at all with the service. Quite... More

We were really looking forward to this restaurant but our experience there was spoiled by very poor and inattentive service. While the food was good,just getting it was a chore. And after dinner? No one came to clear the table or ask if we wanted anything else. The manger disputed what we said instead of simply offering us his apologies.... More

The food was excellent - well cooked and beautifully presented. Location was also faultless and the building was lovely. Service was hit and miss - when we asked for a table the girl at reception went to check - however when we went in the restaurant was no where near full. Just seemed odd. Some of the other staff were... More
