If you like a more leisure way of admiring the Eiffel Tower, book a table at Les Ombres, the rooftop restaurant of the Musée du Quai Branly. The restaurant has a glass ceiling. So while dining on French classics such as foie gras, oysters, and grilled steak, you can admire the beauty and architecture of the Eiffel Tower. The view is at its most magical at night, when the tower glows .
At dinner as a lot of restaurants in Paris it can be quiet expensive but there are excellent deals to be had at lunchtime . Or you can just head to the adjoining salon de thé to toast your savvy tourist skills with an alfresco flute of Champagne or a fine tea.
