The joys of being in a tour group  –  by-pass snaking queues to either climb the steps or catch the lift to the second level of the Eiffel Tower  …

… by-pass 58 Tour Eiffel Restaurant .. next time we’ll have dinner there 🙂    We heard it’s a Michelin star restaurant but cannot find reference to this on their website.   The honeymoon couple on our tour booked a table the following night before their departure but we didn’t see them again so couldn’t follow up on their experience
