“Quality restaurant and service”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

We went here for appetizers and drinks. The staff was friendly and efficient. All the tables at the front were reserved, so we didn't stay as long nor order as much as we were in the back room with no view. My appetizer with bread and mushrooms, cheese was good.

“Grand Cafe = grand experience”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

Grand Cafe is not a typical belarusian cuisine restaurant, but more a place that could be located in any other place in the world. It has a nice interior design, friendly personnel and good food. We had a beef tatar, various salads and desserts -all delicious. It is pricey, but the place is worth visiting.

“A very upmarket restaurant”
Reviewed 21 April 2014

As many of the reviews point out, Grand Cafe is a very nice place to eat. I can certainly vouch for that but I have to admit not the best meal we had in Minsk. Nevertheless the food was very good and the staff excellent with very attentive but not overbearing service. It is a pity that the prices are so high because I am not sure why this should be so. I ordered a bottle of wine which we tried several night previous in another restaurant. The same bottle here was almost 20USD more expensive.

You certainly get what you pay for though, so if you want a nice meal out in pleasant surroundings this place is certainly worth a go. A reservation seems to be mandatory to eat here too.

“Profiling”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

If your wish is to eat well in a sophisticated location and venue this is the place in Minsk. Most people like to book the window seats and watch the pedestrians go by whilst they enjoy an extremely good menu washed down with a coctail. Al little more expensive than most but worth the visit once in a while.

“Paris meets Minsk!”
Reviewed 12 March 2014

A bit pricey but some of the food was quite delicious, especially my unusual fish carbonara. My wife (a chef) said she had eaten better steaks but the peppercorn sauce was good. If you eat here you will certainly not be disappointed, at least until the bill arrives! Great looking staff though and very polished service in a nice French type restaurant.
