Lovely

My husband and I had a meal on a Saturday night and we were both very impressed with food and service. Had a lovely view of Paris at night and especially liked watching locals having fun along the banks of the seine. Quite expensive but a unique dining experience that I would recommend.

What a fantastic experience motoring down the Seine at sunset. Magnificent 3 course meal and wines. Excellent service, wonderful views along the way and grand finale the Eiffel tower lit up like a Christmas tree. 2.5 hours later we left feeling greatly privileged to have had such a truly wonderful experience. Highly recommended.

We were recommended to book for Le Capitaine Fracasse dinner cruise by our local friend and we made booking in February for our first Paris trip in July this year. And guess what?

We booked our dinner cruise for Bastille Day 2015 and, despite short notice, we were able to obtain a table for four. We started with Champagne and Foie gras as the Captain slowly navigated the historic Seine. Our server Julius, was playful and entertaining, yet, he diligently ensured that the meal pacing was perfect. Bottles of a good regional red... More

This is literally the worst thing you could do in Paris. Avoid at all costs. Food was vile and I didn't touch it. The waiters were horrible and threatening to us. And I couldn't wait to get off the ship. It ruined my impression of the city.

We are deeply sorry the visa terminal had been out of connexion while we were cruising and we have been able to connect only when we parked at our boarding place. This was exceptionnal, but can happen as bridges among others make the wiring sometimes complicated. We apologize for this. We are working on a technical solution we will be... More

The cruise on river Seine takes about 2 hours and passes by all landmarks. The dinner room is aircon with great windows but you can also go to top platform to take pictures The Admiral dinner is decent and service is very friendly. You will have a great time.

This cruise was recommended by a friend who lived in Paris. The main appeal for us was the small size of the boat. We wanted to avoid crowds, and the vessel was perfect in that regard. We chose the Grand Cru menu and paid extra for window seating. The service was excellent, the food less so. Partly my fault for... More
