    Lunch and the best views in Paris

    September 17 in France ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    We arrived at Les Ombres, located at the top of Musée Quay Branly, following our meander through the Trocadero area and past the Eiffel Tower. We were seated at the best table, with wonderful views of Paris and the Eiffel Tower.

    First up was a glass of Rothchild’s rosé champagne, which was great, followed by a lovely white wine, a Pouilly-Fumé from the Loire Valley. It was the perfect accompaniment to our three course lunch.

    We started with an Amuse-bouche, followed by a choice of either Duck foie gras marbled with burnt fig leaves and a puff pastry brioche or marinated Mackerel from Brittany served with Romaine lettuce and black olives. The choices for main were Grilled sea bass with garden beans, anchovies and harchard or Roasted saddle of lamb, bolognese styled aubergines, ricotta and mint. For dessert there was a choice of Hazelnut mousse or Rhubarb creation. We also received petite fours with coffee.

    The meal was excellent from beginning to end, the staff were professional, engaging and provided a wonderful service, the company was also excellent and the venue, both the location and outlook, was superb.
