We went here for a quick lunch whilst sightseeing and had the worst foie gras I have ever tasted couldn't finish mine and my boyfriend had food poisoning as a result! The wine was nasty and cheap tasting whole place a rip off do not go!

They have mainly one shot tourist clients so they are highly marging on them with s... products without any flavour and maybe outdated.

I had the worse foie gras of my life there And Was ill for 1 week so avoid that place for your wallet and your health too. Terrible!.

We stopped here for a snack/meal. The posted menu looked OK to us, since we do not eat three course meals anyway.
A tuxedoed waiter approached us with a look of contempt. After we asked for menus, he brought us two (there were three of us), looking as if he was doing us a favor. He was so full of himself, so arrogant and unpleasant that I asked my family to leave. I would not be able to eat with a waiter looking down at us instead of serving us.
Fortunately, we did not have a chance to taste their food.

Trapped here on a Sunday after long walk from arc de triumphe and famished from insufficient breakfast and in need of sustenance before visiting Orangerie museum. There are very few economical restaurants in this area around place de la Concorde. Like none. So, how about finding no formule on Sundays, just a la carte? Price for two average onion soups, 2 lousy sandwiches, a water and a glass of beer? 51 euros. That's about $60 for a lousy lunch that should have cost $15 max. This place was next to maxim's but the only thing "minimum" about this place was the quality. Moral of story? Plan to buy sandwiches and picnic in Tuileries if you are visiting at lunchtime as cafes are in short supply. One last thing: toilets were filthy, stopped up, and paper on floor not in holder. Ugh!!!!

Located besides Maxim´s, Minim´s honored its own name! The food is good but over priced. One thing in favor... Service is very good and attentive. We had a midday lunch and was under our expectation. There are a lot of better restaurants in this area.
