Taxi drop-off for Eurostar

Can someone kindly explain why taxis drop off at the other end of Gare du Midi for Eurostar? I find it confusing crossing to the other end of the station, though I would get used to it if there is a reason for it. Thanks.

I didn't know they did: I take the 27 bus which stops under the railway bridge, about as close to the Eurostar terminal as it is possible to get on wheels, and taxis wait there for pick-up. If they are dropping you in Avenue Fonsny it may be because that is the end at which they have to join the taxi queue to pick up again.

As rue de France is pedestrianized at the level of the Eurostar terminal, they can't drop you right outside the door closest to platform 1: but they ought to be able to drop you close by. You might try asking them to get as close as possible to the Midi Station restaurant - which is just across the way from the rue de France station entrance.
