Le Jules Verne Restaurant Review

About the restaurant: Situated 125 meters above the City of Light, Alain Ducasse's restaurant in the Eiffel Tower has hosted numerous notables --- starting with the most powerful men President Emmanuel Macron of France and U.S. President Donald Trump, Tom Cruise, Arnold Schwarzenegger and David and Victoria Beckham. Le Jules Verne is an opportunity to enjoy an exceptional view of Paris and a Patrick Jouin designed dining room, at once elegant, sober, contemporary and mysterious thanks to the central honeycomb wall enclosing the kitchen.

Likes: THE view.
Dislikes: Getting a reservation is practically mission impossible.

Food & Drinks: There, Pascal Féraud, who has worked at Le Louis XV in Monaco, executes classic Ducasse dishes with clarity. The lobster bears witness to this, as well as the Noirmoutier potatoes with smoked cream and gold caviar, tiny artichokes in a barigoule-style jus and, to finish, a gourmand clin d'oeil, the écrou de chocolat. The wine list is entirely French, and an effort is made to include quality estates that deserve more recognition. Service is professional. Overall, Le Jules Verne is a great establishment for important occasions (lunch menu at €105; dinner menu at €190 for five courses and €230 for six courses).
