Paris has an incredible number of beautiful and stylish restaurants which capture the spirit of the district they are located in. However, only a single restaurant has the privilege of being located on the most famous building of the French metropolis – the Eiffel Tower!
The 58 Tour Eiffel restaurant might not be located at the top of the tower, but still offers beautiful views and a unique environment: it epitomizes the luxurious ultra-contemporary décor by Patrick Jouin. The open kitchen will allow you to admire the work of chefs first-hand and the gigantic windows offer the best views of Trocadéro, Palais de Chailot and the Eiffel Tower itself.
During the day, the premises are lit by sunlight, but in the evening you can enjoy luxurious sunsets. The day is perfect for a pleasant sit-down with your family, with a picnic-style lunch. In the evening, your eyes will be captivated by the beauty of the interiors of the Eiffel Tower, where the tower’s light effects do a great job at showcasing the luxurious metal structure and the interplay of shadows and light: a perfect time and setting for a romantic dinner full of refined tastes.
Are you wondering why the restaurant is called 58 Tour Eiffel? Add an altitude of 57 meters from the ground level to the one meter of additional elevation of the kitchen, and you’ll get your answer.
There was a certain restaurant at the same place already in 1889, when 4 wooden pavilions were built here on the occasion of the world fair. In the thirties of the 20th century, the pavilions were demolished and replaced by two restaurants. Renovations took place in 1980, after which restaurants La Belle France and Le Parisien were created here. In 1996, these restaurants merged and operated under the name Altitude 95; this restaurant’s interior was reminiscent of a classical blimp. And the current luxurious restaurant was created and renamed after the last renovation in 2009.
