If you love sculptures and a nice eating place then this restaurant is a must go place. Not a long list of food to choose from means it is fresh and it is. It is located near the amazing Grand Palais which is again another place to visit. So go and enjoy the visit.

The restaurant is located in a wing of the Grand Palais. You can see the columns outside through the large French windows. It is tastefully decorated with many huge bouquets of white lilies. The food was very well-presented and delicious.

What a pleasure to eat facing the Petit Palais in a great building, built for the universal exhibition early 1900's. The terrace is surrounded by columns and you have the feeling to have lunch or dinner with history. The menu is short but the food is good and the staff (at least the ones that serve us) is very nice.... More

French friends made a reservation and took us here. The restaurant is gorgeous inside, but sit on the terrace if you can. The food was oustanding - I highly recommend the duck entree. Had a baba rhum for dessert (my friends asked the waiter to pour extra rum on it) that was one of the best I've ever had. Loved... More

Yes, the food is expensive, but our meals were cooked to perfection. I have read some reviews on here stating that the staff have been rude, however, this was not our... More

Far enough from the hassle of the Champs Elysee, this restaurant is a great place for lunch and I understand also for Dinner. Efficient service and a menu, even though not too big, but the selection of dishes is excellent. Take to start the small sardines in the tin, then the Salmon or the Beef Filet...the fries are delicious. For... More

Lovely place for an evening dinner. Although service was abit laid back and slow we didn't mind as this is a place you don't want to be rushed. Dinner & dessert was very well made, we would definitely be back to dine here.
