Pretty good

The food and service were good, not great. It's a beautiful spot, however, so if you're near the Grand Palais or Musee Jacquemart-Andre it's worth a try.

Food is usually very good. Service can be slow sometimes but nothing too bad. Brunch on Sundays on the terrace on sunny days is awesome.

Great location, specially if you seat out side on a clear day or evening. Sometime the service as in any of this kind of locations can be slow. Good point is that they are open from 10 am till midnight and that you can eat breakfast, a snack, a tea or a romantic diner. The food is classic brasserie type.... More

Beautiful location, amazing terrace, great food (not gastro but high end bistro), good and friendly service, not overpriced ... Very different from a 'Costes' especially if you compare it with places such as Café Marly: here there is 'content' and it is a 'true restaurant' ! I may be sounding over-enthusiastic but it is simply because I had a great... More

I dined here with my wife on a Thursday night in May and it was a very enjoyable experience. There is something about eating diner in a building full of history. With it’s extremely high ceilings, columned entrance, and simplistic yet modernized décor, the ambiance has a special vibe to it. The food itself was very good, and the tuna... More

Took my wife to Le Mimi palais for her 45th Birthday anniversary. We had Cannett breast and a wonderful young wine called Henry Marionnet Premiere Vendange Touraine Gamay. It was superb. Service was top notch. We sat outside in the terrace in front of the Grande Palais. Unforgettable evening.

We were taken to this quirky new venue in the Grand Palais for a delightlul evening meal. the food is genuinely good and well cooked, the staff more than helpful despite their lack of experience, a wonderful setting amongst museum pieces, some of whom were diners! The service was slow but the young staff tried their best and were very... More

Under arcades of Grand Palais, a large and secluded terasse with nice view and, by far, the best capuccino in town (as surprising as it seems, French barista are unable to produce milk foam, so capuccino in Paris is usually coffee with milk and some barely rigid foam). Worth stoping just for that !

Went there for dinner with friends and loved it. Can highly recommend if you look for a place with a special, fancy atmosphere and if you are ready to spend some money of course as it is not cheap. Food is good but - and it is a big but - servings are not generous; they actually are ridiculously small.... More

Delicious food, great range to choose from and good service, all within the Grand Palais on the corner nearest the Seine.
