View Le Jules Verne ParisThe extraordinary Le Jules Verne restaurant is set 400ft up the Eiffel Tower reached by the restaurant’s own lift in the South pillar. The interior of Le Jules Verne has recently been reborn, the designer Patrick Jouin created a modern, elegant decor which is unstuffy and unpretentious. The kitchen is divided from the restaurant by a luminous glass wall which allows glimpses of the energy and creativity involved in preparing your meal while still ensuring you have a romantic and cosy retreat.

The nonchalant waiters are to be commended for not batting an eyelid when you get up to take photos of the impressive view and as the evening turns to dusk, the Tower and ‘the City of Light’ is the most amazing sight.

The food at Le Jules Verne matches the views, with an up-to-date take on grand classics, right down to a chocolate bolt dessert that pays tribute to the 2.5 million bolts that hold the tower together. The creative Chef Alain Ducasse, is a culinary master for the 21st-century, inspired by the comtemporary changes all around, he and his team create dishes with the heritage of the best French tradition while pursuing the most genuine of flavours from around the world.
