58 Tour Eiffel Restaurant

58 Tour Eiffel

58 Tour Eiffel is a restaurant situated on the first level of the Eiffel Tower. This restaurant lead by famous Chef Alain Ducasse offers fine French cuisine in a unique environment. Guests can enjoy freshly prepared dishes high above Paris in an easy-going atmosphere. For dinner, the restaurant is more in a brasserie mood with its soft musical background. Look at the impressive steel and wood staircase leading to the main dining room. The menu features a tasty traditional French cuisine with dishes such as bell onions and girolle mushrooms with their red wine sauce (sauce 'meurette'), boiled egg pan ('oeuf mollet') fried with bacon, baked John Dory ('Saint pierre' fish) with its vegetable tart and herb vinaigrette. As for the dessert, try the excellent rum and light vanilla cream parfait. Combine the best of the worlds in Paris having a fine dinner at a restaurant on the Eiffel Tower.

When I was in Paris for an exhibition recently I took a couple of American customers to this restaurant because it combines a famous landmark with French cuisine. I thought it would be an unforgettable experience for them and I was not disappointed.
It is on the first floor of the Eiffel Tower so at night the views are spectacular especially if you can get a table by the window. It is quite avant garde in the way it is designed with a sort of circular swirling purple light above which sounds strange but it is all done in the best possible taste. The lighting is quite subdued so that people can see the city and there are candles on the tables so the atmosphere is wonderful.
I am not easily impressed in restaurants becuase I do a lot of entertaining all over the world but I thought the food and the service here was excellent. We had the cheaper of the menus (not that any of them are exactly "cheap") but it was just great and as far as I was concerned it was certainly worth it.
You'll skip the queues at the bottom and go straight up to the first floor in a lift. If you are looking to do something in Paris for your partner or customers, you can't beat this.
