WE had a great experience on Le Calife on their dinner cruise down the Seine. The food was delicious. Boat was romantic. and the views down the river at night were spectacular! This boat doesn't look as new as the megaboats, but it definitely was way better than the other ones!

We took this trip in October 2014. Our large party of 16 was seated downstairs in the boat, which meant that we really could not see any of the city lights. The food was just OK, for the price I was very disappointed. I don't know if our large party pushed us downstairs, but I would caution anyone who books... More

What a wonderful way to finish a stay in Paris. Even though there was a miscommunication issue by myself for the booking the staff went out of their way to find us a table on a fully booked evening. The food was superb, the wine was perfect, atmosphere charming and the attention to detail from ALL the staff was AMAZING!!... More

Would recommend every couples traveling to Paris to at least take one night and try a dinner cruise on the river. The boat might look older than the fancy "glasboats" you find below The Eiffeltower, but when you get on board its a really charming and romantic experiense. We took this one due to reviews on the site and also... More

This was the penultimate most romantic highlight of my holiday in Paris. The husband booked it as part of our honeymoon. A cruise for just over 2 hours. Food is absolutely delicious and attractive to look at. Yes, this is a bit extortionate but it was an experience that I will treasure for the rest of of my life. The... More

My husband and I celebrated our 1st year anniversary on this boat and had a fantastic time. The staff was super nice and we got to see the best sites of Paris. The food was good taking into account this is a boat. Good value. I definitly recommand this restaurant.

We decided to sail on le Calife on our first night in Paris. What a perfect decision! le Calife is beautiful and very well kept. The menu choices were wonderful and all four of us enjoyed every bite of our meals. However, the best part of the night was the way we arrived at the Eiffel Tower just as it... More

Had a lovely evening cruise and dinner. The boat is charming to the eye and the cruise shows off Paris especially the Eiffel Tour. The food was good. Three of us had the sea bass and the other the vegetarian option. The meal comes with champagne or kir royale to start but given that we arrived as requested before 8... More

We joined the cruise for an evening meal. We assumed the main attraction would be the views but it was in fact the food. It was one of the best meals we ate in Paris. The boat is personal and small, not like some of the massive floating barges you see of the river. The staff were friendly and polite... More

Had a great night here. Food was really good, service lovely and a good atmosphere. Not a cheap night out but worth the money. Try to book the terrace. We sat on the deck and while lovely, the view would have been better from the terrace which we were warned about when booking.
