We stayed in Paris for 2 weeks. We saw everything! This was the #1 thing we did! The food, service, view and overall experience was outstanding. The boat is gorgeous and so full of character. The captain was so gracious, we will be back next trip for sure! Book ahead to make sure you can get a table on this... More

We enjoyed a lovely evening cruise ending with seeing the Eiffel Tower lit up. The food was good, the service excellent and as we looked across the river to much larger dinner cruise boats, we were very glad we chose Bateau le Calife!

What a wonderful way to spend a special birthday. The evening was perfect, the meal delicious, the service incredible and then when the lights on the Eiffel Tower went on, Wow! We can thoroughly recommend Bateau le Calife for a wonderful night out in the beautiful Paris.

We have just had dinner on the calife for our last night in Paris. We had a lovely lovely time. Staff were polite and friendly. It was very romantic and the sights were great, especially the flashing lights of the Eiffel Tower at 10pm- perfectly timed. A memorable evening. Starters and mains were good, could have been a bit better.... More

My husband and I took my parents to Paris and booked a dinner cruise on night. This was a great choice. There are many dinner cruises, but I would only recommend this one. The boat is a classic style, not one of the uber modern ones with too-bright led lights. There were locals celebrating a birthday and other events onboard,... More

We chose the 4 course menu for our trip and wasn't left hungry. Service is great, food and drink choices are plentiful and the boat is comfortable. It's an intimate experience, yet you don't feel like you can't have privacy. We booked online, then stopped by the dock to pay the deposit- don't feel your booking will be denied since... More

A fantastic way to see Paris, and the food and service were both magnificent. Would recommend to anyone. My other half actually said "it was like sensory overload - I didn't know whether I should be enjoying the food or views more!"

Enjoyed the trip down on the seine river and wonderful views, a nice experience with a good atmosphere. The food was perfect with a good service staff. Like the others we can understand why there is a lot of good reviews we can now recommend this cruise to our friends

This was a wonderful evening. The food was wonderful. We both had the goat cheese in puff pastry as the first course. My partner had the sea bass and I had the guinea fowl as the main course. We both had the apple tart for dessert. It was a romantic evening with scrumptious food and beautiful scenery. If I return... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
