The view from this restaurant is fabulous but the food is not. It's expensive, overpriced and needs an overhaul. The room itself is painfully retro, which could have been overlooked if the food had been better. Or even ok. Go for a drink or to the observatory to see the view but don't go for dinner...unless you like overpriced tourist... More

The view is great - no doubt about that. However, the breakfast was poor for the money (dry pastries that didn't taste fresh at all) and sloooooow service. The restaurant was not busy, but only one of the 5 or so staff members milling around were serving breakfast. Didn't have a premium feel unfortunately, which is a shame given the... More

I would highly recommend this lounge for having a cup of tea or your pleasure. It is on the 56th floor and faces the Eiffel Tower. There is wonderful window seating and the service is pleasant. We enjoyed a couple of cups very good tea with comfortable Window seating. There was no fee for the elevator 😁--unlike the observation deck... More

This has to be one of my favourite eateries of all time. So walking towards this giant ugly building (Montparnasse tower) is a little under-whelming ....but most parisians say the best view of paris is from the tower .... because you cant see the tower! Once inside (after walking around it twice looking for the door) We took the lift... More

The view is spectacular. But compared to other sky top restaurants (think in London The Shard, Duck and Waffle, Searcy's at the Gherkin) the decor is dated and it feels a little like you're eating in an airport lounge. The €39 menu is well priced however a la carte is tremendously expensive. My date had a €55 steak which came... More

Loved the night time view of the Eiffel Tower. Dinner was pricey, but everything was delicious. How many times am I going to have the opportunity to do a dinner there? Go all out and enjoy yourself!

Not the sort of restaurant where you go once a month, but you should definitely go at least once in your lifetime. The view is simply breathtaking. Food is good, not stellar, prices are expensive, but you do pay for the location, so they make sense. Service is very good, considering it's Paris.

We opted to skip the observation tower and went straight to the 56th floor to the restaurant! We say at the bar and each ordered a drink. Yes, they're expensive, but only a few euros more than what you would pay for the observation deck. The drink was lovely and the view was to die for! We opted to do... More

This was a family treat during a visit to Paris. We had been unsuccessful in getting a reservation at the Restaurant atop the Eiffel Tower - so we opted for the Le Ceil de Paris in order to enjoy a great view of the Tower while dining. The view was not disappointing. However the restaurant was very, very crowded and... More

I visited here back in July with my partner and was not disappointed! We opted to go at lunch time due to plans in the evening and although the view isn't quite as magnificent as the ones pictured at night, it was still the perfect lunch location with amazing views of Paris. We had a 3 course set menu and... More

Neighbourhood Profile
The namesake tower of Montparnasse dominates over the landscape but the fun part is the throbbing life that goes on below it. Bright lights, busy cinemas, brasseries and diners encompass hidden museums and parks to entertain the masses. Long avenues lead away from the tower to take you to unsuspecting places and historical monuments and treasures. In between lie adorable ivy-covered houses with beams and small gardens to match. Just a short metro ride away from the centre of Paris this neighbourhood has something for every hour of the day.
