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.

At first the Mini Palais ticked all the right boxes. Great location, very stylish decor, buzzy atmosphere and good food. But the service really is the pits and lets the place down. When we were given our menus we were not told what they were out of, so when they finally took our order- 30 minutes later - we all... More

We had lunch reservations and the place was packed. Lovely outdoor dining with a nice view. The gougere which I had with my cocktail was super and too much of a temptation. We had duck and chicken for our plats and everything was excellent. The highlight was my husband's chocolate dessert which was gluten-free (he has celiac disease). Not a... More

Recent review from Marc definitely hits the spot. A big resto in very grand surroundings, with service definitely better than previous reviews had led me to expect, food good but not exactly memorable, and at a price just a bit higher than I was comfortable paying for what we got. We dined inside on a cold autumn evening in uncertain... More

The restaurant is huge, and so are the portions. The prices are also high, and the food, although good, nothing that will last in your memory. It is a good experience if you want to dine in the Grand Palais. Service is very attentive and cordial. Wine list also very nice.

Zero stars really. Despite having made a 2pm reservation for lunch, there was no table available and my party of three were 'told' to stand at the end of the queue, of mainly people who had not made reservations. After twenty minutes of standing there, with no evidence of anyone ahead being shown to a table, we left. From our... More

I came for a business lunch and I would definitely recommend it. The food was delicious, portions are great if you look at the quantity / quality / price ratio and the location is clean and prestigious. Being a little picky, I would say that we could have expected a warmer welcome in this kind of place: we were seated... More
