Wonderful way to get see much of the City lit up for the evening. Food and service were wonderful, mood was quiet, uncrowded, and romantic as opposed to some of the loud and harshly lit cruises we passed on the river. We highly recommend Bateau le Calife for those looking for a beautiful dinner cruise on the Seine.

My fiancé and I stayed in Paris in August 2014 and celebrated our anniversary. I wanted a romantic dinner cruise down the Seine river and Bateau le Calife ended up being an excellent choice. I had read about it on Trip Advisor and the reviews were on target. The food, the ambiance and the value were spot on. There are... More

We were on the Calife last night and had a magical time. We couldn't speak more highly of the staff, food and the experience. I especially liked that the boat did 'cruise' unlike other boats we passed. Paris at night is incredible and the Eiffel Tower is a must see:-)

My wife and I went on this dinner cruise on our last night in Paris. Could it really be as good as the reviews suggest? It was better! What a wonderful way to end a week in Paris. The food, wine, service and atmosphere were simply first class, and the timing to reach the Eiffel tower at twinkle time was... More

What a perfect night. This boat ride was magical - the atmosphere, the food, the staff, the journey, the wine... everything. It's great value for your money, for five courses let alone the beautiful boat ride! There was a big family birthday so everyone was in good spirit. The only thing I would say is there were a lot spiders... More

Thanks again to Trip Advisor reviewers for the reviews and tips. Let's start with booking, bookings only open 3 months to the day of the cruise you are taking. http://www.calife.com/english/ be aware this is not a $10 cruise with a baguette thrown in but what you do pay is worth it. You board the boat on the Left Bank opposite... More

A wonderful way to spend an evening in Paris - even if it was raining! The staff were very friendly and helpful, the food was delicious and the views were perfect. Would definitely do this dinner cruise again. A magic night!

We had such a romantic, wonderful evening aboard the Calife. We both opted for the smaller meal and it was more than enough and absolutely delicious. The service is impeccable and the ride/Eiffel tower views at night are just wonderful. We will be back. Just excellent.

I booked this dinner cruise as a surprise for my wife, and she couldn't have enjoyed it anymore. If you're looking for a romantic dinner out in Paris, you really need to consider this as an option. There's just something about gliding along the Seine as the sun is setting and the Parisian lights begin to twinkle. The food? It... More
