Paris by Night--Rooftop view

by SandiM

We are staying at the Sublim Hotel just west of Montparnasse in April. Got our daytime schedule set for sights, however I would like to take my mother to a cafe or restaurant just after the sun dips below the horizon, for a rooftop view of Paris when the city lights up. Something with the Eiffel in view in the distance? Can someone suggest a rooftop place or two that would fit the bill? Not expensive, but nice and cosy. Decent menu (doesn't have to be great, it's really the view that counts, so we can stare out across the city). Merci!

Assuming when you say "Sublim Hotel" you mean Sublim Eiffel
in the 15th over by metro Sevres-Lecourbe?

If that's your hotel, one of the best views in Paris at night is from Tour Montparnasse, which is approx a 20-minute - ~ 1.4km walk from your hotel Southeast down Blvd Pasteur.

There is a decent cafe on the top (56th) floor Le 360 Cafe

where you can have a drink(s) and a sandwich, salad, inexpensive (for Paris) meal while you get to enjoy the best nightime view in all of Paris. Check the link (above) out.

If the weather is nice (April should be ok) you can walk up another floor to the rooftop outside as well.

The only catch is that tickets for the elevator are 11 EU ($14 CA) per person to get up there, - and I know you said "not expensive"

but I can guarantee it is a (weather permitting) once-in-a-lifetime experience neither of you will ever forget.

Some passes like this one
include Tour Montparnasse as well as a Seine cruise and some museums so you might want to check that out also if you're into inclusive passes (I think they cost too much)

If I can think of somewhere free near your area I'll post it later, and hopefully someone else here can suggest a less expensive rooftop alternative with a decent view.

To me though, Tour Montparnasse at night with the view of Tour Eiffel and all the rest of Paris when the lights come up after dark
(again - weather permitting)
is worth the 11-EU each to get up there.

The cheapest solution would be to grab some picnic-style sandwiches and maybe a bottle of Brouilly and stroll the other direction about 1km to the Champ de Mars facing of the Eiffel tower and just picnic on a bench there.

Hope this helps - Bon chance.

What about going up to Montmartre. Different restaurants with sometimes a large panoramic view.

There is the Café de l'Homme, just in front the Eiffel Tour. Great view!!
Or le Georges on top of the museum Pompidou. Amazing view on the roofs of Paris.

Travel Tips for Paris

by Sunnie

The ferry cruise along the Seine River. It's a pity that when we had the ferry cruise, it's during the early evening. Didn't have the chance to see Effiel Tower lighted up. A stroll along the Siene River will be romantic. Ave. Des Champs Elysees. There's nowhere else like it.

by Koleno

Paris has the best food in the world. The restaurants are charming and serve the best food in the world. But, your eating experience does just happen in the restaurants. From the street vendors serving craps to the little sandwich & pastries shops everything you eat in Paris is some of the best food you will ever have. Chocolate crape from street vendor and bagette sandwich from local shop near Eiffel Tower.

Difference of Cafe, Bistro, Brasserie & Restaurant

by jearloneal

Anyone who spends money on a trip to Paris wants to have a great time. Here are some tips on how to have a great time by respecting the French view of different classes of eating establishments. Follow these guidelines when choosing a place to eat or drink and you'll have a good time as well as the respect and appreciation of the eatery’s management and staff.

French Cafe:

A Cafe provides coffee, drinks and snacks at the bar. These could consist of a hardboiled egg, a buttered baguette with ham, cheese (delicious) or a Croque Monsieur (also delicious), some may also have, although usually only at lunch, a very simple inexpensive menu consisting of one or two dishes often cooked by the proprietor's wife. Service is bustling, usually by the owner who doubles behind the bar. Ambience is laminated table tops with perhaps some frilly plastic doilies. The cost could be $5.00 to $20.00 and up. Good examples are Cafe du Capuccines and Cafe du Concorde. The proprietor, his wife and an assistant normally provide all.

When you enter a Cafe, you will most likely be greeted by the owner. A simple, “Bonjour,” in return is enough. If you are stumbling through a French phrase, many French will repeat the phrase correctly for you so you can hear it. Repeat the phrase as they have spoken it and thank them. Ordering a sandwich, or just a drink is expected in this type of eatery.
As this is the most casual of eateries, one could wear casual attire including jeans and tennis shoes.

Good environment for well-behaved children. Many owners will want to interact with them.

French Bistro:

A Bistro is a small modest establishment; it includes those thousands of simple places that take up half of Paris. A Bistro will be even more casual and laid back than a Brasserie. It may have no professional service, no set written menus, rather written on a board each day. The menu is short and could include dishes such as Coq au Vin, Bavette (lsteak), Salade Niçoise and Côte de Porc. They are simple well-priced meals in pleasant surroundings with competent waiters bustling around. Service is fast and prices are low. Bistros must turn their tables over to make a profit. The cost could range from $15.00 to $30.00 and up for food. The house wine is usually good and may be served from a bottle or carafe. Some French examples are Cafe du Cherche Midi, Le Quercy and Polidor.

Again, when you enter a Bistro, you will most likely be greeted by the owner. A simple bonjour in return is enough. If you are stumbling through a French phrase, many French will repeat the phrase correctly for you so you can hear it. Repeat the phrase as they have spoken it and thank them. Ordering single course is acceptable for this type of eatery, but you will be missing some delicious home-cooked food and pastry.

A Bistro could boast a chef and an assistant; a waiter could be expected to serve food and drink to thirty (30) covers (seats) and turn them over once or twice a night; the owner could do the bar and the cash. Feel free to order a bowl of soup de poisson while your partner can have a more substantial meal. Remember, as one of the goals is to turn tables a couple of times a night, after dessert, find a nice sidewalk cafe to continue your evening and allow the waiter to achieve his/her goal. While this is still a casual environment, I could suggest no jeans or tennis shoes. Also, remember to say, "Au revoir Monsieur et Madame,” on your way out.

Good environment for well-behaved children. Many owners will want to interact with them.

French Brasserie:

For me, this is where the fun begins. A Brasserie is larger and more elaborate than a Bistro. Its distinguishing features are size; long hours of operation (often from 8 am to Midnight); availability of food throughout the day. The menu is reasonably long and well priced. Typical dishes are Fruits de Mer, Choucroute Alsacienne, grilled and simple fish and meat dishes. Service is rapid from overworked waiters dressed in black and white. Traditionally, many of the dishes are plated in the room. The surroundings are often quite smart and the atmosphere is one of noise and bustle, generated by the turnover of tables that their low prices require to make a profit.

A brasserie is a pleasant place to visit but not a major dining experience. However, you can make it a major dining experience and the staff will love you. Platters of fresh seafood are a wonderful way to start. The oysters in France are both wonderful and different from those in other countries. There are Spéciales, Fines de claires (my favorites), and Belons to name a few.

A Brasserie is used in a number of ways - for lunch, for a drink, for dinner and for supper. French examples are Flo’s La Coupole, Le Zeyer and Au Pied de Cochon. The cost could be between $20 and $70 and up. The wine list will be good and have a range of prices to offer.
A brasserie could employ a chef and four (4) assistants for approximately two hundred customers a day. A waiter could serve similar numbers as in a bistro and there could be a barman and a Maître d’ overseeing the seating and service.

Even though it is the goal to turn tables at a Brasserie, because many of them are larger spaces, you can judge how long to stay by how many tables are available at the time you complete your meal or move to an outside table which is generally smaller.

While this is still a casual atmosphere, I could recommend that gentlemen wear some sort of jacket. Ladies have an easier time of it as they can port a nice pair of slacks and a blouse. If you are looking for respect, don’t wear jeans (not even $400 jeans as denim is denim) or tennis shoes. If you are not looking for respect, then you should probably not be in Paris.

Tipping should include the Maître d’ at between five (5) and ten (10) percent) in addition to the 20% for waiters. One can present the Maître d’ with his/her tip directly.

A Brasserie is a good environment for children, but remember, French children are not allowed to act out in public as American children are. Children may hear the hustle and bustle around them and feel it gives them the permission to speak in their "outside voice."

French Restaurant

A restaurant provides a complete setting, service, food and wine list. The food is refined, the service attentive and the tables are properly spaced in a well appointed dining room. The food could be Haute Cuisine with sophisticated forays into the other branches of French cooking. You could spend the entire evening dining here. It is a major event. The examples include all the great and famous Michelin three (3) star restaurants of France like Le Pré Catalan (if you are going to splurge at a *** star, I recommend starting here), Ledoyen, and L'Arpège cost could be between $100 and $500 and up for food and drink.

In Michelin two (2) and three (3) star restaurants in France, seating for 80 could have a director in charge of the dining room; who could, in some cases be assisted by a 1st Maître d’ followed by at least two (2) Maître d’ each overseeing a waiter assisted by one (1) or two (2) junior waiters. There could also be one or two of sommeliers (wine specialists.) FYI, the sommelier is your friend and you should treat him/her so. You can advise him/her after you have placed your order and ask him/her to advise you on several wines that will best bring out and compliment the flavors of your meal. You can be frank with him/her regarding inexpensive, moderate or specially priced wines. You will want to consider having a couple of wines wit the meal, so you can experience several wine regions at one sitting. Once he/she serves the wine, feel free to ask him questions about the wine and give him/her an opportunity to show off their knowledge.

In most cases there could also be a barman, cashier, toilet assistants and doorman. There could be almost no turnover of tables. The kitchen brigade could be anywhere from 14 to 20 consisting of an executive chef, and sous chef plus four chefs de parties and eight junior chefs.
Naturally, there are restaurants that do not have Michelin stars, but the principles are the same. Now, this is a special occasion and I recommend that gentlemen wear jacket and tie, and ladies wear something wonderful to show off your style. Dining for an entire evening (3 hours) can be a wonderful experience. There will be time to enjoy, share and discuss all the food combinations that are served as well as the wine.

Only children who can sit at the table and keep their voices low and their activities simple should be taken to a restaurant in Paris.

bon appétit!

Toilets - You will find public...

by joecooper

Toilets - You will find public toilets all over Paris which look like a big phone box. You have to pay 2 FF to use them but you are almost guaranteed a clean toilet every time. This is because after they are used, the entire inside of the toilet is automatically sprayed with water - the floor and walls included. When you enter the toilet you may find the seat to be wet but don't worry it is clean water. Just use some toilet paper to wipe it over! More than one person can use the toilet for each 2 FF as long as you hold the door open for them. Don't worry about being sprayed though - the floor has pressure sensors!!

Enjoy the view from the top of Samaritaine

by xamba2004

If you are looking for a very central and beautiful view of Paris, I suggest that you go to La Samaritaine. It is a big shopping mall right in the center of Paris (Pont Neuf tube station). Take the lift to the very top and enjoy the view! You can see Champs Elysées, Montmartre and almost everything else.

You might have to pay a couple of Euros (unless you decide to sit at the cafe) but it is well worth the price.
