In the 7th arrondissement of Paris, Les Ombres restaurant is as famous for its view of the Eiffel Tower as it is for its menu designed by chef Jean-François Oyon. Set in a glass and iron-ceilinged atrium on the top floor of the Musée du quai Branly, the restaurant’s outdoor patio looks out over the Eiffel Tower and makes for a popular place to enjoy contemporary French cuisine with a fusion twist.
Dishes depend on the season but can include combinations such as warm oysters with sabayon sauce and buttered leeks or escargot in wine sauce. Desserts range from Savarin cake in Limoncello to crispy chocolate fondants.
This destination restaurant is an ideal spot for a late dinner, over which visitors can enjoy seeing the Eiffel Tower light up and glitter gold every hour. Les Ombres is also open for lunch.
