We had a wonderful night with Bateau Le Calife! The food was amazing, the service was friendly, and we couldn't ask for a better view of Paris by night. Well worth the price- a definite must for any first-time visitor to the city.

Me and my friend had a dinner there to celebrate our one year's anniversary. At first I was looking to book a dinner cruise at one of the two big Parisian boat companies, but the comments about their service and prices were not at all encouraging. That's when I found out about Le Calife. That was 200% great choice. The... More

If you are looking for somewhere totally different to eat in Paris then Le Calife ticks all the boxes. There is no dress code for diners, most people were dressed smart casual. Ladies, if you are wearing heels then beware of the cobbles on the river side - there are many holes!! From the moment you step on board the... More

I was advised by a friend that we should take a dinner cruise down the Seine. There are a fair few out there! We chose this one as many of the reviews refered to others that you were sat on each other laps or having to share tables we other couples. This one seems much more private.. we booked the... More

Great experience from the welcome on board, food, service and beautiful decor. Great view from the boat and Paris at night is spectacular. Could not recommend this company highly enough. Tankyou.

A beautiful barge lit up at night. Food was superb and service excellent. To see Paris at night was truly lovely. I would recommend this river trip above all others.

We had a lovely meal in a beautiful setting. The boat sailed passed the Eiffel Tower at 10 pm so we saw it lit up and twinkling too. When we first tried to book we were emailed back to say they couldn't take bookings until a month before. We were then emailed with a reminder on that date to tell... More

It was also our 30th anniversary and the whole thing was faultless, the staff, quality of food and the amazing lights of Paris made it a memorable night for us.

We highly recommend this "non-touristy" romantic Seine dinner river cruise with your special someone. The menu was perfect. Stop on the way to dinner and leave your lock on the lovelock bridge, which is just around the corner.

Be forewarned! This boat apparently does not sail on Mondays! Our 30th Wedding Anniversary happened to fall on a Monday, 4/14/2014. Although I was aware that many Paris restaurants and other establishments close on Monday, and many on Tuesday as well, I didn't find out this one was until they replied to my original e-mail sent months in advance on...
