We are often asked about a good Paris restaurant with a view. An obvious candidate is Le Ciel de Paris, a famous restaurant on the 56th floor of Tour Montparnasse spectacularly facing the Eiffel Tower and Paris city.
Ciel de Paris serves affordable set menus at lunch and even for dinner in a quiet and spacious environment.
The quality of food and service at Ciel de Paris are much debated. It would indeed seem to be natural to pay less attention to customers as the Paris view
is a unique advantage over most restaurants in Paris
We therefore test regularly this restaurant and were there again last Thursday with a party of four. We took the 39 euro three course menu for lunch and drunk a good bottle of Provence red wine. Altogether, this added up to 200 euros, a reasonable price for quality restaurants in Paris.
I must say the service was over standard in Paris and the waiter was nice and enthousiastic. Everyone was delighted by the food of which we took pictures. There is only something to hope : that Le Ciel de Paris will continue to provide this unique Paris experience at a price that is affordable to many.
