Wit was raining pretty hard and it was lunchtime. We were treated very well, amidst well-dressed Frenchmen in impeccable suits and a pair of well-coiffed, politically minded French ladies. The room is lovely, but no tower view from where we sat. Fortunately, they were happy to serve us the more inexpensive things on the menu and with graciousness. Food was unremarkable, but then we merely had a croque Monsieur and some smoked salmon as a light lunch to wait out the rain. Expensive, seems to be a place where the well-heeled go, but service was impeccable even for our meager order. Food was average, but we were glad they had those items. Sparkling clean and well decorated, we later saw it was bustling around 1-2 pm, probably local lunchtime, again lots of business suits. Fun to overhear snippets of conversation about economics and French geopolitics.

It is a traditional French cafe food (even though they have restaurant menu) open all the time. In a touristic area, on Sunday, Christmas time, holiday, all the other places are closed but this place is open all the time and always find a place. This is 'pro' thing with very Parisian style atmosphere, after all, it's next to the famous avenue Montagne. 'Cons'- food is mediocre and sometimes not get a quick attention when you ask for a bill - we had to wait for a while. The location is fantastic - view of Eiffel tour, pont Alma, next to the famous grandiose avenues. If you get tired of touristic walking, not finding place as others are too crowded, you can count on this all time open cafe.

View great, food average to say the least and very overpriced. I would not recommend here or go again, only gets marks for the view. Our lunch for two cost us over 100 € which was at least double what it was worth, even with the view.

this was recommended to us and whilst was nice was vastly overpriced, the cheapest wine on the menu was €32 and it is very nouveau cuisine so if you are hungry...walk on! food was lovely but vastly overpriced for what you get. have been and done and probably won't do again

We arrived before the normal start of dinner hour, but Chez Francis welcomed us anyway. Situated with an excellent view of the Eiffel Tower, the decore is casually elegant. It seems there is a wide variety of clientele, so you may occasioannly run into a celebrity or two (as we did). The staff was pleasant and helpful with the menu and service. Most dinner items ranged from 25-40 euro/plate. It was recommended to us by a friend, and I'd gladly forward the recommendation to others.
