“If you love Paris do not miss it!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

The view, the view and the view. Speechless. For those of you who like the city or for romantic couples. Excellent service. Good food but sooo overpriced.

“Amazing view but average food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Walked in excited for a really lovely lunch with a wonderful view. Unfortunately we were greeted by an extremely rude receptionist who denied the fact we had a booked a reservation. We were seated in a terrible position unable to see the view (the whole point of the visit)

Atmosphere was lacking and it was very quiet with sulky staff.

Food was average. We started with lobster soup which was good, (I've had better), followed by veal and salmon for our main which was completely tasteless. The only reasonable tasty thing was the dessert which was presented well.

Bill came to €138 excluding drinks for three courses which is even more expensive than London/ New York.

All in all, very disappointing - only go for a drink as otherwise a complete waste of time and money!

“Fantastic view, excellent food and wine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

The highlight for Le Ciel is definitely the view. This inevitably makes it a bit touristy, but you can forgive it once your food arrives - the food is exceptional here as well! Whether you are visiting or live in Paris, this place is worth a look, and if you can stand looking like a tourist, take your camera!

As is normal with any good French restaurant, there was a great selection of wine on offer, from all parts of Europe.

The service was better than I have come to expect in Paris - no complaints about the service at all, prompt and effective in all cases.

I had the lamb, which was prepared just right, it was tender and matched with an excellent sauce.

The chocolate dessert was also a highlight, a chocolate ball filled with cake - definitely one of the more intricate and tasty desserts I have seen!

Paris has a great many good restaurants, but this one stands out for the view, and carries through with the meal. Worth checking out for sure.

“It's worth the visit.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

Let's face it - you're here for the view and you hope the food is good. Well, it is; and to enjoy it with an unsurpassed view of Paris is a special event. I had the steak, which had a very flavorful mushroom sauce. Daughter had chicken, which she enjoyed. Desserts and salads also were good. Yes, a bit pricey - but it's worth the experience. And one more thing - service was superb.

“WOW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2014

This was the best restaurant we ate at on our trip to Paris. It is located on the 56th floor of the highest tower in Paris (other than the Eiffel tower) It is not cheap, but worth every penny. It was delicious. We had Lamb that was so tender and grilled vegetables that were out of this world good, and don't get me started on the dessert - WOW. All this with a 360 view of Paris, absolutely beautiful
