Modified the 25/01/23
Since 2019, the Eiffel Tower has completely revisited its food and drinks offer, whether for dining at a table or on the go. The two “flagships” of its eateries are, of course, its restaurants: Le Jules Verne, situated on the second floor, and Madame Brasserie on the first.
NB: restaurant bookings do not include a ticket to visit the Tower, only access to the restaurant.
The new brasserie style at Madame Brasserie
Located on the first floor, Madame Brasserie was inaugurated in June 2022 and offers a unique gourmet experience in true Parisian style, headed by Chef Thierry Marx. Madame Brasserie is a fine-dining restaurant with seasonal, local produce and a bright, chic setting. Guests can choose between a view of Paris, the Trocadero and west Paris, or the entrancing structure of the heart of the Tower.
At lunchtime, savor the typical Parisian brasserie experience with views over the French capital. Choose between the Brasserie menu (from €48 per person, not including drinks) or the Madame menu (from €69 per person, not including drinks). A children’s menu is also available for 4-11 year olds (€20). Guests can dine at 12pm or 1:30pm and it is advisable to book in advance. Bookings include a ticket up to the first floor (€9.10 per person).
For dinner, the atmosphere is more refined and romantic with stunning sunsets and views of the city of light coming to life. For this unforgettable moment, Thierry Marx and his teams have put together two menus to treat your palate: Menu Gustave (from €90 per person, not including drinks) or Menu Dégustation Grande Dame (from €175 per person, not including drinks). A children’s menu is also available for 4-11 year olds (€35). It is well worth booking in advance for both services: 6:30pm and 9pm.
Madame Brasserie is also a lounge bar that is open all day and in the evening, offering a cozy haven of tranquility with unique views of Pont d’Iéna and the Trocadero. The Lounge serves an authentic Parisian breakfast from 10am to 12pm and a range of options for those with a sweet tooth between 3pm and 6pm, with no reservation required (subject to availability of spaces). In the evening, the bar is the ideal setting in which to sip delicious cocktails and savor refreshments while enjoying the warm, muted atmosphere and gentle background music.
Everything you need to know about dining at Madame Brasserie:
- It is strongly recommended to book in advance for both lunch and dinner.
- Guests must arrive at the Eiffel Tower 30 minutes before the time of their booking (allow 10 to 15 minutes to pass through the security checks at the entrances to the Eiffel Tower) to collect their booking and ascent tickets from the Madame Brasserie reception desk on the Esplanade.
- After collecting your tickets, the hostess at reception will tell you which elevator to take to access the first floor.
- For visitors already at the Tower, the restaurant on the first floor is also open for lunch and dinner without a booking (subject to availability of spaces). Food is served at 12pm, 1:30pm, 6:30pm and 9pm.
- The restaurant is open every day except July 14.
