Bastille Day restaurant recommendations - 2014

I've searched the forum -- and haven't found current information.

We'd like to be in a restaurant with a view of the fireworks for Bastille Day 2014. We'd love to hear specific recommendations, if possible, to achieve that end. We are thinking in the 100E per person range, if possible.

Thank you!

Look into the dinner cruises. They "park" near the fireworks and you'd have a pretty good view from the water.

Thank you for your clever suggestion!

Adding ---- if the suggested money limit is too low, please advise! This will probably be a "once in a lifetime" so limited our options if the difference is something we could manage would be shortsighted!

You shouldn't even assume that the fireworks will automatically be at the Eiffel Tower this year. We are getting a new mayor in March who might have new ideas. Since I moved to Paris, the fireworks have usually been at the Eiffel Tower but not always...

Les Ombres was closed for a private party last year on Bastille Day. I believe Phread says they close every year for the same party.

I wonder if Le Ciel de Paris has anything that night.

Le Jules Verne was about E600 per person that night. I don't know if the first floor restaurant was open that night or not.
