Eiffel tower, stone's throw

This always seems to happen: run yourself ragged at the Eiffel tower, then, totally famished and cranky, you barge into the nearest eatery. Later you realize you paid too much for lukewarm slop. You swear either 1) to never go to the Eiffel tower or 2) do some homework beforehand. Can anyone help with recommendations? Closer to the tower, the better. Merci, in advance.

    We didn't go there on our trip, but Au Dernier Métro (http://www.auderniermetro.com/) was recommended to us by a fellow Chowhound poster when we were considering a dinner in that area.

      Dernier Metro is a good idea as is the Concert de Cuisine and Casse Noix in the other direction.

        Chris - It's good, it's basic, and it's traditional. Worth it for a lunch if in the vicinity. Love the confit du canard.

        DrT - isn't Cantine du Troquet Dupliex close (I know I murdered the spelling - but I am on a bus) have not been but his others are great.

          "isn't Cantine du Troquet Dupliex close"
          Not much farther than the others and much fun - you were not far off - La Cantine du Troquet Dupleix,
          Dr T.

        I really like the Jules Verne and you could hardly be closer! Plus, as it has its own elevator you don't have to run yourself ragged and it's not as expensive as you'd think.
