What a lovely way to spend Christmas Eve in Paris. The cruise is at a wonderful pace and quite intimate, the food is fantastic and service is great. You actually feel sorry for the others speeding past on the big tourist boats. If you get a chance do this dinner cruise, you will not be disappointed.

We did this on our last night and it was a great way to say good bye to the city. The food was great and the views were wonderful. I got the lamb and it was amazing. The trip was timed perfectly for us to see the Eiffel tower light show. The food was really good and the waiters were... More

This is one of the best ways to see Paris. Sat at your own table eating fine food and drinking fine wine. Excellent service by attentive and friendly waiters. It was fun tipping a glass of Champagne to those people racing past on the large site seeing boats. This small boat cruises at a wonderful pace, you hardly feel like... More

This was definitely the highlight of our trip to Paris. The ambience on board was romantic and relaxing. The food was actually the best we had during our stay, which was a lovely bonus. Service was friendly and prompt, without being rushed. And of course the main attraction of seeing Paris lit up at night time was beautiful with the... More

We had a tasty dinner aboard Le Calife and a beautiful evening cruise along the Seine. Good service, well kept boat. Definitely worth making space in your plans for this.

Dinner on the Calife topped off our stay in Paris and this isn't just an average tourist dinner cruise. As a restaurant, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was very relaxing and romantic. The fact that it is sailing along the Seine past all of the Parisian landmarks is just a bonus. I would highly recommend to anyone planning... More

Very nice and relaxed way of seeing Paris. The boat is small enough to make you feel as a special guest. Lunch was very tasty and the service was great. Both servers were very friendly and attentive.

Dinner at the Califfe boat restaurant proved to be a wonderful experiencel. Different from the often crowded tourist dinner cruise boats, this particular vessel offers a very original and pleasant setting and a very nice dinner. Food is very tasteful; wine selection is nice. What makes the Califfe one of the better dinner places in Paris is certainly the courtesy... More

Le Bateau le Calife is a vintage boat full of charming decorations and admirably operated to provide a lovely experience. The setting is intimate and the view fabulous. The food was most enjoyable and the 67 E meal was more than enough food, although they offer another option with a cheese course. The staff are very accommodating and prepared to... More

Went on the boat in December, accidentally arrived an hour early but didn't realise, they let us aboard and gave us our glass of champagne and appetisers (cheese pastry balls). The staff were friendly, spoke excellent english and were very helpful. The boat itself was small and beautiful, the decor and the outside of the boat had a old feel... More
