We ate at this restaurant many time during our stay in Paris because they were so entirely friendly and it was close to our hotel. The food is excellent as is the service! They must not get a lot of tourists, but they sure did treat us well and welcome us so warmly each time we entered. Thank you for... More

Not bad but nothing special but the view on the Eiffel tower which is amazing. Very typical parisian Brasserie

This restaurant will hold a special place in my heart, as it was my first meal in Paris. It has been a lifelong dream to visit the city and it was fitting that the,meal we had was a sandwich fromage. We stopped in mid afternoon, between lunch and dinner, and the menu was limited to just sandwiches. I am sure... More

After a long day viewing Parisian monuments and sights, we decided to venture on the wild side and seek out this restaurant, Aux Ministeres, pretty far off the tourist beaten track. We sat down at an outside table but didn't even bother ordering. The stench and smell of cigarette smoke hanging over the restaurant was simply unbearable. We were a... More

Aux Ministeres, located far away from tourist trap restaurants, and serving an area very critical at lunch times (big organizations and public offices around), is a great bistro/brasserie for a good lunch. The menu is very diverse, and their daily meal has many options. Quality and price are good, and the service, for Paris standards, is superb. I recommend it... More

We were starving and hoping for a real meal after our visit to the Musee Rodin, but by the time we got to Aux Ministres, they were closing (early, as Bastille Day was the next day). Nevertheless, the helpful waitress scrounged up a nice ham and cheese sandwich for us, and a glass of wine and one of beer.

Have been to this restaurant several times as it is just around the corner from our house. It is a place that caters to the numerous civil servants, as indicates its name, in the building across the road, so it has to deliver quality. This far from the tourist track, you cannot simply rip off people and wait for the... More

Service was extraordinarily attentive and helpful to these two Canadians who were fresh off of an overnight flight from Toronto. The lamb stew and my wife's fish (with some sort of really great sauce) were true taste treats. The prices were very good and the ambiance was very comfortable. We went back for a second time, but the dining room... More
