I am a flight attendant. I read the TA reviews and decided to try this place. It was everything everyone raved about. Pascal was a VERY gracious an funny host making us feel comfortable the minute we arrived. The food was EXCELLENT! Everything we ordered from Itallian toast, salad, chicken rigatoni, crime Burke and apple tart dessert were EXCELLENT. Nice wine selection too all with extremely reasonable prices. Make sure to make a reservation if eating 8:30 or later! We had an 8pm reservation and it was perfect timing. Can't recommend this place enough!!! Pascal is the only server so it he gets pretty busy around 9, don't be in a rush.

The food was very good. The place is very intimate and cozy, with the staff joking around, making you smile and having good English to top it off. It's rare to find a place with great attitude and an English menu :) The food was very good too, and in general not expensive compared to Paris :)

I keep coming back to the Mini Festin...This is on of the very few restaurants in Paris where you can be sure to have a fresh and 100% homemade meal..All this for a fragment of the usually over priced meal you tend to find here because of the Eiffel tower being close by.

I brought my in laws here for lunch today and they loved it! They live on the Cote D'Azur and found the lunch really good and super cheap. As I stated in my earlier reviews, if you want a "cuisine gastronomique" pass you way but everything here is super fresh and tasty...and home made plus really really tasty. The restaurantGO is very cosy and the acceuil is well, what can I say, we just adore Pascal, the owner...Great service, friendly as ever and not just with the huge amount of frequent and happy customers who keep coming back!

As soon as we got to the restaurant, the owner welcomed us in and made us feel welcome. He seems really proud of his restaurant and he showed us his tripadvisor certificate proudly on the window. As soon as we were seated he asked us if we would like a drink and then we ordered from the menu. The food took about 10-15 mins to come out and it was well worth the wait. The food was definitely value for money and the owner/waiter made it a good experience. I highly recommend.

It was a thirty minute walk from our hotel, but worth it. Had toast, tomato, and mozz and anchovies with basil for starters. Rigitonni with four cheese and ravillo. Then finished off with two raspberry creme brulli. Had a couple of beers and wine as well. All for 52 euro. What a deal. The owner spoke English well and was really nice. This small place is a hidden gem and a must visit. You won't regret it.
