Les Ombres Restaurant

27 Quai Branly, Paris, Paris, 75007

The Basics

Famed for its striking looks—it was designed by French starchitect Jean Nouvel—Restaurant Les Ombres also offers one of the city’s best perspectives on the Eiffel Tower, as well as panoramic views over the City of Lights. Situated five stories up on the Musée du Quai Branly’s roof, the restaurant has been a popular sightseeing destination since its opening in 2006. A top choice for epicureans, the restaurant specializes in classical French cooking: think foie gras with purple figs, roasted salmon with caramelized leeks, and confit pork belly.

A visit to Restaurant Les Ombres can easily be paired with a tour of the worthwhile Musée du Quai Branly, or with a sightseeing stop at the Eiffel Tower, which is located just east of the museum.
