You may be asking “are there eating places in the Eiffel Tower?”

In fact, there are five. Three on the first floor, two on the second floor, and one on the third floor (although one restaurant spans both the first and the third floor, so you can only count four places to eat in its entirety). Plus, their dishes are phenomenal. Here they are:

  1. 58 Tour Eiffel (1st floor).
  2. Le Jules Verne (2nd floor).
  3. Champagne Bar (3rd floor).
  4. Gustave Eiffel Room (1st floor).
  5. Buffet Tour Eiffel (1st & 2nd floor).

If you’ve already visited places to eat that have a view and/or are in a tower, don’t worry, there are other options.

If you’d like to go to a more subtle and quiet place without a kitchen, to try the food, check out the cheese and meat shops or small restaurants. They’re so simple, yet so delicious.

Brush up on your knowledge of cured meat in Paris before you go. Then, follow up with questions at each shop to make sure you get the most traditional cheeses and meats they have to offer. You might fall in love with several different kinds.

Last, if you’re in the mood to walk around while tasting french delicacies, check out the gourmet food walking tour. Some of these tours allow you to enjoy tasty beverages, too.

Whatever option you choose, they are all enjoyable. Or, go all out, try them all, chances are, you and your family/friends will not regret it. (Just a little tip: save up your money so that you can visit as many of these places as possible, even if it is just for an appetizer!).
