Recommendations for our first 3 day trip to Paris (from Australia)

ausfoodie | Sep 30, 2012 03:59 AM

i will be travelling to Paris from Australia for the first time with my girlfriend. We will be there for 3 days in about 3 weeks time from now. We always like to include some nice meals in our travels to enjoy and also compare to other fine dining establishments.

Having spent the last week and a half reading the threads and reviews here and other blogs, we have so far decided on the below restaurants for lunch:

Monday: arrive late afternoon, dinner at Le Regalade St Honore
Tuesday: Guy Savoy lunch (booked), short trip to Versailles afterwards, should we do dinner there too?
Wednesday: Jules Verne or Pierre Gagnaire
Thursday: Tour d'Argent (booked), dinner not yet planned.

I am not sure whether to go with Jules Verne or Pierre Gagnaire. We will be visiting the Eiffel tower on Wednesday in the late afternoon so can see sunset on the Summit, but am not sure if the good views (window table not guaranteed) in Jules Verne is worth choosing it over Pierre Gagnaire.

I have read many reviews on Pierre being a potentially risky option (love or hate), and have weighed this up with other choices such as Le CInq, Arpege, Ledoyen, Taillevent, but have chosen Gagnaire so far. Or should I consider other options?

Would greatly appreciate any comments or suggestions, thanks!
