The "mini palais" is a fabulous place to visit. I would go again just for the venue! Just splendid! The food matches the venue as well, the menu is created by top chefs and it's a délice! The selection of wine will suit most demanding guests. Service style is typique French style and could be the only downside at times,... More

The waiters were very professional even though very young. The place is beautiful. The food was great, very well worked and it was a pleasure. Highly recommend the sea bass with cucumber jelly.

This is truly a partisan restaurant and a great place to take a date. The food was wonderful and the wine delicious. I was on a date with a French restauranteur who if very particular. Service was great and it was very intimate for conversation. It is in a mini palace so the ceilings soar but the environment was still... More

Modern restaurant within the Grand Palais. The atmosphere was relaxing and chill, and the service was friendly, competent and generous. The menu was modern and french, with some asian inspiration and flavours. It was all perfectly put together :) ¨

Despite it's within the palace, it's a really lively place for lunch. The service staff was friendly and prompt. Enjoyed the canard and dessert very much. Will be back if i'm in the area again.

Had a wonderful Saturday evening dinner at Le Mini Palais on October, 22, 2016. Le Mini Palais is in an absolutely beautiful location, inside Le Grand Palais with views of the Seine and Le Petite Palais as you enter the restaurant, you feel like a VIP as you enter via the stairs. The inside of the restaurant is very nice... More

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.

Thank Kilese
