Le Jules Verne Review

Alain Ducasse doesn't set his sights low, so it was no real surprise when he took over this prestigious dining room on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower and had designer Patrick Jouin give the room a neo-futuristic look in shades of brown. Sauces and pastries are prepared in a kitchen below the Champ de Mars before being whisked up the elevator to the kitchen, which is overseen by young chef Pascal Féraud. Most accessible is the €90 lunch menu (weekdays only), which brings you à la carte dishes in slightly smaller portions. Spend more (about €175 to €210 per person without drinks) and you'll be entitled to more lavish dishes such as lobster with celery root and black truffle, and fricassee of Bresse chicken with crayfish. For dessert the kitchen reinterprets French classics, as in an unsinkable pink grapefruit soufflé with grapefruit sorbet. Book months ahead or try your luck at the last minute.

    Le Jules Verne Review

    The only positive point here is the view !
    Quality of meal is the one of a diner and it's not a nice comparaison for the diners...
    Truffle cookpot with truffles : 2/3 of the pot is a Paris mushrooms duxelles,1/3 is potatoes, some undercooked and ONE TINY SLICE of truffle, even not tasty...
    Lobster with overcreamy sauce, used saint honore...
    For 4 with a glass of champagne and half bottle of wine ....1000€...Keep your money for another experience
