Located one plateau lower than the famed Jules Verne, you would expect the restaurant that is pretty hard to get reservations for to be pretty good.|
In fact, the restaurant was a huge, outright disappointment, a bastardization of French cuisine that really does not belong anywhere near Jules Verne, which requires a 3 to 4 month advance booking, or even belong on the Eiffel for that matter. Service was terrible from the start, setting a foul mood for the dinner, and continued through most of the night until it became evident that we were not impressed at all, at which point it finally improved a tad, but it was too little, too late.
Although we had a set menu (€50) so one would expect mass-produced food, the quality, with exception of the okay Fish Pastry appetizer, was barely worth €10. The main course, chicken served on a bed of spinach, was tough, dry, and reminiscent of Swiss Chalet without the skin. The dessert was a store-bought chocolate mousse cake.
Conclusion: They have a nice view and somewhat decent appetizers. Apart from that, the grossly-overpriced restaurant just isn't worth visiting.
