This restaurant gives you the chance to experience the Eiffel Tower in another way; that is, rather than looking at it from afar, you could dine inside it. Explaining what makes Le Jules Verne special, Michelin-starred Chef Frédéric Anton tells us:

"The restaurant Le Jules Verne is unique as it is located at the top of one of the most emblematic monuments in the world, the Eiffel Tower, and it proposes a wonderful view of Paris and a gastronomic experience. Le Jules Verne is the perfect spot for a memorable Valentine's Day."
