Eiffel Tower restaurant

You are looking for a restaurant in town to propose, celebrate a wedding anniversary or another great event.

Take the spectacular private lift of the restaurant to the second floor of the Eiffel Tower. At 125 meters, enjoy the breathtaking view, the excellent service and the gastronomic cuisine of Alain Ducasse, a well known French chef. The restaurant is expensive. Try the 105 euro set menu for lunch during week. Good value for money. Book very early.

The more affordable Ciel de Paris, another great restaurant, has a breathtaking view of the Eiffel Tower. Check our selection of the top restaurants with a view Paris.

Art Nouveau restaurants

Paris has a rich legacy of restaurants from the Art Nouveau time (1890-1914), a very lively and artistic period in the city, kicked off by the Eiffel Tower inauguration in 1889 and ended by World War 1. A few combine beauty and good food.

We love Mollard, an affordable brasserie near Saint-Lazare train station, the Opera Garnier and the department stores.

The seashells, sauerkraut and the famous Omelette Norvegienne make up a delicious meal. Drink beer from the tap or alsacian white wine. We are regulars.

Relai Louis XIII

Relais Louis XIII is housed in an old house near Notre Dame. The interior features old stones, noble wooden beams, engravings, stained glass windows and antique chairs. Very attached to traditional French cuisine, Manuel Martinez, the cook, revisits it and brings an elegant modernity to his classical dishes. The cook is obsessed with finding the truth in flavors, through a meticulous produce selection process. Great gastronomy.

60 euro signature menu at lunch time. Web site.
