Upon arrival at the Eiffel Towers '58 Restaurant' (58 meter's high) we were escorted to our own private booth and greeted with glasses of champagne whilst making our selection of the three course menu and enjoying magnificent views of the city. We dined on chilled green asparagus soup; seared tiger prawn, avocado, soya and sesame dressing; Seared salmon fillet, carrots and green peas, white butter sauce; Oven roasted leg of lamb, Anna potatoes, artichoke, real jus and to top it off Profiterole with vanilla ice-cream and chocolate sauce and Variation around the chocolate Jivara. It was the most divine meal we have both had our entire trip, the view and the company topped off a great evening!!!! To top our splendid evening we were also allowed to wander the first floor and take fabulous photos of the city by night.
The following day we had a relaxing time wandering hand in hand the left bank of the Seine River, shopping, visiting Notre Dame, enjoying a lovely lunch at a kerb side cafe, enjoying the sights and sounds of a true artistic Paris. We then headed via the metro (yes I know...) to the Eiffel Tower where we strolled up to Palais De Challot for some more glorious views of the Eiffel Tower and of course photo opportunities. We enjoyed a lovely dinner (our last in Europe) before taking a Bateaux Mouches along the Seine for an hour long night cruise. At the conclusion of this we watched the Eiffel Tower in all its glory as it put on a sparkly light show!
Today, we spent our day becoming art critics and visited the Louvre where we enjoyed coffees, lunch on the balcony and of course some art thrown in. Oh, yes we also popped by to say Hello to Mona Lisa, she sends her regards.
Enroute to Paris airport, bound for Dubai and finally home on Thursday!
