"We tried to eat in the..." France Tourist Trap Tip by Sheri_Z

France Tourist Traps: 83 reviews and 45 photos

We tried to eat in the restaurant in the Eiffel Tower.
After 25 minutes and no bread or menu, and no sign of a waiter, we gave up and left. I was later told this is due to the new 35 hour rule (in place of the 40 hour week) but after telling the hostess, and then warning her we'd leave (and no bread or menu from her either) enough is enough.
