At the top of the Tour Montparnasse there’s an observatory. Right under this observatory there’s the most beautiful restaurant I’ve seen, called Le Ciel de Paris (The Sky of Paris, in english). There you have the unique view of the city that only the Tour Montparnasse can give with an amazing food and service.
Before we went there, I looked at TripAdvisor and people said it was expensive and the food was not as good as the price was high, but that the view made going there worth it. So, after seeing some photos, I decided to go. I made a reservation through the restaurant’s website and asked for a table with view to the Tour.
When we got there, we noticed the restaurant’s exclusive elevator was also part of the experience. It had this beautiful decoration that combined with the restaurant’s decoration and was really fast.
When we got inside, it was a huge surprise that they had actually reserved for us a table with view to the Tour (I thought they wouldn’t) and the most amazing view to all Paris. We could see, also, the Musée d’Armée, the Arc de Triomphe, the Ferris Wheel, etc.
I was, also, surprised by the food, because I found it delicious and quite the oposite of what I was expecting. A good amount of food, for a not-so-bad price. The waiter gave us the best recommendations and we loved every single dish.
Tips for those who want to go there
- Make reservations a while before going. The restaurant is full almost every day and you may lose the best time and table if you book too close.
- The sunset is just amazing from up there. Try to book a time close to it.
- Don’t choose the Menu Balcon, it’s too far from the window and people are always passing by.
