Lonely Planet review
If you’re intrigued by the idea of a meal in the Tower, the 58 Tour Eiffel is a pretty good choice. It may not be the caviar and black truffles of Jules Verne (on the 2nd level), but Alain Ducasse did sign off on the menu, ensuring that this is much more than just another tourist cafeteria.
For lunch, go first to the restaurant’s outside kiosk (near the north pillar); for dinner, reserve online or by telephone.
