My husband and I booked this cruise for our one year anniversary. We paid the extra (30 euros!!) for the nicer seats but it really ended up feeling worth it because we had the BEST table at the very front of the boat. The food was good and filled us up. I ordered the chicken for my main course and... More

Contrary to other reviewers we thought this was the highlight of our four days in Paris! The small tasting portions were completely adequate and gave a broad range of tastes - maybe not to everyone's liking, but that is why it is a tasting platter. The main was completely adequate and the dessert selections were DELICIOUS - again in small... More

Many thanks for your comment. We are happy you enjoyed our "cuisine" and the way we are serving it. For the information during the cruise we have dropped any attempt in this direction as this is too disturbing for a special moment as a dinner.and dedicated as you point if to sightseeing. More

Please avoid this tourist rip-off. The boat holds up to 250 people crammed onto small inadequate sized tables. You are not told in advance, but if you want a table by a window you have to pay a supplement per person. The “famed appetizer” is an array of small amuse-bouche nothing special and somewhat bland My wife's fish was tasteless... More

Sorry you were not satisfied with our dinner-cruise.Most of our clients chose Capitaine Fracasse for the reasonnable prices (best deal on the Seine) and for the quality of food with our Chef "Meilleur Ouvrier de France". Obviously you have not been impressed the evening you were on the boat, and we will take into account the points you raise. As... More

My review is also for the 14th July 2014 only. While I agree with the other reviewers that we missed a very large part of the fireworks show, because of boat location, and the fact that the total coverage of the trip was reduced on the Seine. The part which we faced ( a group of 7) the most trouble... More

This review only concerns the special 14th July dinner-cruise coinciding with the firework display at 11pm from Trocadero and the Eiffel Tower. This cruise is 60-70 Euros more expensive than the usual dinner-cruise due to it being 14th July. The positive side: the food and wine were good, the staff efficient and friendly and the dining space comforatble and smart.... More

Sorry for your dissppointemnt. The cruise on July 14th is very special due to the Fireworks and the security measures on the Seine river. One of our guests was not on time this evening but insisted to embark as our family was already on board causing a late departure (20:48 instead of 20:30). In this case it was not possible... More

We were visiting Paris and decided to have dinner on this boat cruise that passed through Paris along the Seine. Theoretically, there couldn't have been a better place to have a romantic dinner.. boy were we wrong! For the amount of money we spent it was incomprehensible that the food could be this bad. First we were seated in the... More

This is the second time we've done this cruise. The last time being in the winter. It all seemed a bit rushed this time, the boat was half empty. We hadn't finished the cocktails before the starters and the wine arrived. The dinner wasn't hot more warm. The desserts were lovely, but not as impressive as the previous time. We... More
