Great cruise, decent food

We enjoyed our cruise very much. However, I felt that we overpaid for the food. The wine and sampling platter were wonderful, however, the food was just ok. For what we paid, we would have expected the food to be spectacular. I ordered the veal, which was more of a meatloaf made of veal. It could... read more

My husband and I took our little granddaughter to Paris for her fifth birthday.Our Capitaine Fracasse dinner was magical. From the moment the boat silently started to glide down the Seine we were thrilled. We were greeted like expected, honored guests and they seemed genuinely delighted with Emma. We had our drinks on the top deck and pretended to duck... More

Diner was fair, service average. The main meal we wanted was not available. So overall a little disappointed. Hard to Find.

It was by far the most romantic dinner I have ever had so far. Not only is the cruise of Capitaine Fracasse one of the most entertaining night tours from a relaxing and romantic point of view, but it also serves fine cuisine. The food was amazing as was the dessert, the restaurant was neatly kept to a high-class point.... More

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful evening on this dinner cruise. I was so surprised at how good the food was. I think it might have been the best meal we had during our week in Paris. I figured that it would be pretty touristy and be more about the cruise than the dining but I was so wrong.... More

Booked with Captaine Fracasse because the other dinner cruise is loaded. And it proved to be a wise decision. It wasn't crowded at all. And the food was absolutely delicious. The steak was cooked perfectly, the foi gras sauce was really on a winning contest category, the potatoes were so delicious I would gladly take a pound to go. (Lol)... More

This adventure along the Seine, watching the City of Lights glide by in an old world & elegantly appointed river boat, is one of the most enthralling ways to view Paris. And this company knows what they are doing: the service is crisp; the ride is smooth & professionally managed, even when the river current is raging along. The charming... More

Returning yet again and another excellent dinner with wonderful views of Paris on the Seine. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed their evening. It is a lovely way to introduce clients to Paris in a very relaxed atmosphere. Very welcoming staff and good service - would always recommend paying a little extra to reserve seating in the bow (front) of the boat.

Good service n view, too much air conditioner... Too cold but the waiter gave us a towel to cover it... One picture 15 euros a little expensive but still it was romantic and the service was good and the food fine!
