Marion D

Who knew there was a restaurant in the Eiffel Tower, and I feel honoured to have eaten there. Food was exceptional, so many courses with plenty of drinks. Need to book well in advance and be prepared for the lift journey up. Views of Paris were stunning, certainly was a once in a lifetime experience and worth every penny. Very helpful staff when choosing gluten free options and customer service when we accidentally left our photo behind. If visiting Paris this beautiful restaurant is a must 10/10.
