58 Eiffel Tower ...
Ever thought about how wonderful it would be to dine high up in the Eiffel Tower?
So had we, and twice in the last month or so it happened. First time Kiwi Chris and company chose the Jules Vern restaurant for their dining experience. This was their story.
Ours groups experience was different yet very similar other than more affordable and slightly less fancy French fare.
I had chosen to dine at 9pm at restaurant 58 Eiffel Tower for my groups dining experience. This allowed us to be at dinner when the lights went off. Each hour after dark the lights sparkle. Quite spectacular!
A few comments. Expedia has quite comprehensive instructions and directions but there are some gaps that caused some moments of confusion. Like where the checkin locations were. We were not the only ones a bit lost. But once in line for the elevator all was super smooth.
We arrived at the restaurant and were escorted to our dining tables. Bubbles were poured and the dining experience was soon underway.
Look, this experience was heavily anticipated and as such had all kinds of pressure to be an amazing evening. So how did it stack up?With its wall-to-wall windows, the restaurant offers a breathtaking view over the Trocadéro, Palais de Chaillot and the beauty of the Eiffel Tower's structure. Views are good from any table and sunset is simply spectacular.
The food is excellent and not too 'foody' so a regular bloke can enjoy a good feed. Oh and by the way the desserts will not disappoint.
The food, the wine and the ambiance were all on point and the true test. Would we do it again? In a heartbeat.
So look at some of the photos below and don't hesitate to book your own dinner at 58 Eiffel Tower when in Paris.
Happy Travel Adventures,
