Tour d'Argent (La)
A combination of fine cuisine and stylish wooden decor has made Claude Terrail's restaurant one of the most fashionable in Paris. Young, talented chefs ensure that the menu is of consistently high quality, and prices are what you would expect to pay for its sublime offerings of duckling, foie gras and lobster. It also has an exceptional wine cellar. Situated on the sixth floor of a luxurious champagne-coloured building, the restaurant offers stunning views over the Seine and the rest of the city.
WAY over priced.. the place badly needs a face lift, Service was horrible. It was like going to a Duck fast food restaurant.. Many better places to eat in Paris. They are living off their old reputantion!!
For any visitor to Paris lunch at Tour d'Argent is the experience of a lifetime. The view of the Isle d'City & Notre Dame is breathtaking. You will never wonder - not even for a monment - if you are anywhere except the very heart of Paris. Yes, the food is wonderful. What to order? Duck, duck and more duck. Don't miss this historic eatry.
We dined at Tour d'Argent during the Vietnam War and were seated next to the peace negotiating team for North Vietnam. Their table seating about 10 was dissatisfied with the meager size of the caviar bowls and Madam Nu had them deliver the caviar in a hugh serving bowl! At the time we couldn't help but wonder about the starving people in Vietnam engulfed in misery whilst their dignitaries engorged themselves at the expense of the masses. So much for collective farming! However, our meal, service and quality were of the highest order and with a after dinner liqeur in the candlelit wine cellar below capped a truly wonderful epicurian evening. Not to be missed under any circumstances. B. Jerome & J. Parker, Gainesville, Florida
Whatever critics may see (Sometimes I wonder where they go for dinner) it remains one of the most exceptionnal restaurants in the world.
The view is great of course but I was personnally impressed by the food and even more the wine selection. They have an English Sommelier, his name is David Ridgway!
I took my wife for her birthday, plus our daughter and two teenaged cousins, last summer. The waiters were extremely friendly, taking the girls over to another window to see the light show on the Eiffel Tower. The wines were excellent and the food was very good. I will have something other than the duck next time, which will be my wife's next birthday. It was expensive but worth it. I recommend dinner after dark, which is late in July. I asked the sommelier to choose the wines for us. They were superb. Everybody should try the duck but the rest of the menu looks great and I will sample it next summer. Expensive but worth it.
Old is truly gold. La Fontaine de Mars, with its old chequered tablecloths, lacy curtains and wooden doors, retains the
old world charm. The ambience is cozy and warm, serving authentic French food. Get a taste of Parisian delights ...
Founded in 1903, this majestic tearoom is definitely worth a visit, maybe two in fact. Try the Chocolat African, the
piece de resistance of the hot chocolate menu. Angelina is also known for its other specialty the Mont Blanc ...
This brasserie is listed as an historic monument the reason being, the beautiful Art Nouveau decor that takes you a
step back in time. Not only is the setting marvellous, but the menu is also appetising. Try the Sole ...
