having visited many other places in Paris, this one surprised us with absolutely amazing view on Eiffel Tower, wonderful service (which is very rare in Paris) and lovely athmosphere! It became a "must visit" for us since first time we went there!

High end restaurant with excellent food but lacks warm human service. The staff are efficient but could be friendlier. No need to clear the table the minute we have finished eating. Even the set menu comes out pricey. The ambience provided by the Eiffel tower illuminated just beyond the balcony makes up for some of these minor issues.

We wanted to make our last night in Paris special and so booked this restaurant for it's view over the Eiffel Tower. It was perfect. We were welcomed instantly and well looked after the entire night. Food was cooked to perfection and served promptly. Wine was also excellent. There is a rooftop restaurant outside which we went out on after our meal and gave us superb views of the city at night. No complaints.

Go here for cocktails with an amazing view of the Eiffel Tower on their outdoor patio, but don't stay for dinner. We were here for my birthday this year and although the ambiance is lovely, the service is great and that view is spectacular, the food is lackluster. For as pricey as this place is, you would think the food would be so much better! The coconut curry scallops were mostly beans (yes, beans) under the 2 small scallops I received. My husband's chicken was over-cooked and tough. Dessert was not redeeming- a licorice-flavored creme brulee? Blech. In short, the view is worth the visit, but take it outside for a few drinks instead of eating here.

I Wish that I had researched this more before going. As it was our first time to Paris we wanted something really special for our first dinner there, and this seemed to fit the bill. It was an absolutely shocking experience!

Atmosphere & location: yes it is under the Eiffel Tower and does have a good view however having said that in the subsequent days walking through Paris we found numerous restaurants that have the same if not better views

Food: abysmal, to say I have eaten better quality food out of vending machines is in no way an exaggeration. The meal sizes are outrageous, having eaten in Michelin star restaurants (which this place is not) through out the world we were expecting small beautiful portions but really on receiving 3 peas and one slice of 2cm by 1cm beef for the not so small cost of 44 euros(!!!) for a main we were flabbergasted! And for that price was it amazing? NO it was shocking and flavorless - the lamb slice on one meal was so full of fat and gristle it was inedible.

Service & Staff: Our waiter was average and everything took an age! We waited 30 minutes before being able to place a drinks order and then another 30 minutes before he would take a food order. And then to top off the experience the restaurant refused to even call a taxi for us making us walk a number of blocks to find our own way.

I would not recommend this place to anyone, there are so many beautiful restaurants in Paris where the view is spectacular, the food exquisite and the staff friendly do NOT waste your time or money at this shameful place.
