My 8-year old son and I had an excellent lunch at this brasserie on our last day in Paris. We wanted something special near to our hotel, and we certainly got it. La Tour de Nestle looks like one of those bar-restaurants that you often see in Paris: situated on the corner of a road, with floor to ceiling windows, a terrace and a bar at one end, propped up by neighbourhood regulars. But this one set itself apart from the usual fare in that it was cleaner, better managed, better decorated and more upmarket than other bars I've been to. Service was excellent, and so was the food. My son chose lamb, and the waiter was happy to substitute very good chips for the puree de pomme it was supposed to come with. I chose the burger LTN (a reserve option in case my son didn't like the lamb). The portions were generous and the dishes delicious. The waiter was also helpful in choosing a light wine for me to go with the burger, and there was no sniffiness about having a burger. Neighbouring tables had ordered salads, and they looked excellent too. We had no room for dessert. Had it not been our last day in Paris, we would have gone back. I'm not sure whether the waiter spoke English, but the menu was in English as well as French.
On our last day in Paris we decided to walk from the apartment that we were renting in the Passy neighborhood to the Jardin du Luxembourg. We came across La Tour de Nesle on our way and decided to have lunch. My wife had a very nice Caprese salad. I wanted fish, so I asked the waiter, who didn't speak much English, about the items on the board. He tried to explain aile de raie, and we finally figured out that it was skate. I've usually had skate fried or broiled, so that is what I expected. What came out from the kitchen was baked, and for the first time ever the cartilidge was left in the skate wing. It took a bit of work to avoid it. It was served with an ample serving of boiled potatoes. It was good, but different from what I was used to.
Overall,very nice quiet place. Staff is really nice and pleasant. We had beef steak(price around 15€ as I remember),meat was really good but they arranged the meal to look like burger :D It's close to the Eiffel Tower which is really good if you get hungry on your way there(ofc if you choose to walk :) ) Def. a big plus for this place
