Setting and duck to die for!

We had a lovely lunch at the Tour d'Argent. The delicious duck is their signature dish and was prepared in front of us on a raised dais. The views of Notre Dame over the river are fabulous and the setting couldn't be better. Foie gras amuse bouches were lovely. Likely the finest (and very large... read more

I've eaten here before, but this is the first time I've brought my daughters here (ages 10 and 12), and was unsure what kind of reception they would receive in this hallowed restaurant. Of course, I needn't have worried. The girls behaved perfectly, and were treated as the Tour d'Argent treats all its guests: like royalty. The food was superb... More

The food is superb and the service impeccable. The dining room is beautifully appointed with great views of the back of Notre Dame. My only disappointment is that I was expecting the pressed duck presentation to be done tableside (the pressing is done in advance from the previous day's ducks).

I'm sure most people who book to go here are aware of the hype and the history. French Presidents and Kings, Napoleon, John F Kennedy, Nixon and Japanese Emperors have all eaten here. Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip ate here on their honeymoon. So is it just faded glamour or is there still a serious restaurant here? Today is... More

The food is fantastic. Classic french cuisine. The whine list got it all! The sommelier give you a very competent and helpful hand. The view over river Seine and Notre Dame is absolutely stunning. If you got the money, just go there and enjoy the dinner of your life!

If you are in Paris you must come here. Incredible dishes and desserts of The Modern French cuisine. Beautiful view on Sena and NOTRE DAME de PARIS. Those who love Onore de Balsac`s books can eat in his favorite restaurant.

Dining at this restaurant is a wonderful experience. The atmosphere is so enjoyable - tables aren't close together, view of Notre Dame, pleasant surrounding. The duck is a must! If you have the opportunity, ask to visit the wine cellar - over 400,000 bottles!

Staying in Odeon / Saint-Michel

Neighborhood Profile
Odeon / Saint-Michel
As the bustling center of entertainment for the residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just next door and the prototypical terraced French brasserie is on every corner. The setting for this area is second to none; the Haussmann-style boulevards are contrasted by monumental architecture and overshadowed by the iconic Notre Dame, all within a moment’s walk from the Seine. This neighborhood's world-famous bookshops, cafés, and streets will not fail to impress you.
