Le Calife is a dinner cruise that suits your budget. And you get many views.
The restaurant on top of the Institue du Monde Arabe should be within budget, as well.
For a smaller view, but a view, none the less, Cafe Marley over looking the pyramids of the Louvre.
For excellent food at that price, head to Le Timbre. It is so small. they'll probably be blown away that you know about it and it is excellent value.

This post brings to mind a story I just read about the late Craig Claiborne, the late New York Times food critic and cookbook author. In 1975 C.C. won a tv auction with a prize of dinner for two at any restaurant, anywhere in the world.

His choice: Chez Denise in Paris, recommended above.

My dad just sent me $150 to enjoy one dinner at a famous restaurant. I posted my question on another thread. I think spending the money on two restaurants would be better for me and in reading this thread it sounds like some excellent choices.

Any recommendations in selecting two of these might provide different ambiance, meal choices, etc?

We will be staying at the Novotel Les Halles (Chatelet.

I would love to go to Chez Denise, where exactly is it? Will I be far from it?

These are great suggestions - I hope to try some of them out myself on my next trip!

I do have a question about Les Ombres. The tasting menu: When I hear "Tasting Menu" I think of very small portions of each dish and not filling (based on one bad experience years ago). Is that the case for Les Ombres? I don't want to walk away feeling stuffed but don't want to walk out either feeling like I didn't get enough to eat for dinner.

I was in the station last week and it looked open. Didn't go in though.

We stopped in Le Train Bleu on our way to Dijon a couple of weeks ago for a pre-trip petit dejeuner.
