Splendid view

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!

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.

I live in Miami and recently started a long distance relationship with an amazing woman who happens to live in Southern France.

My husband and I booked this cruise for our one year anniversary.

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

Please avoid this tourist rip-off. The boat holds up to 250 people crammed onto small inadequate sized tables.
