I just want to say that our waiter James was the most amazing waiter we’ve ever had. He was attentive, excelled our expectations and went out of his way to entertain us by with providing riddles during our cruise between the courses. The cruise itself was not rickety at all (I was mildly hungover and survived!) and luckily the weather was bright and sunny to see the fantastic views London has to offer. We live in London but this would be great for visitors to see the famous buildings from a much more unique angle.

My wife and I had immensely enjoyed a Sunday Lunch cruise on the Willow Room at Windsor which had been a gift. We in turn gave the same gift to friends who also enjoyed their Windsor cruise. We decided to treat ourselves to a foursome cruise. Covid 19 saw an end to that plan for a year. The office was brilliant and assured us that our cruise would happen but in London rather than Windsor as Willow Room was reserved for private hire.
So last Sunday we arrived at Embankment Pier, boarded, were seated and all four of us enjoyed a wonderful cruise both up and down the river.
Our waiter Alex was perfect, the food was beautifully prepared and moreover served at the correct temperature. The music too was great.
All the staff on board were friendly and the overall ambience on the cruise was superb. The day was well worth waiting for and we will be looking to book again definitely for Sunday Lunch but perhaps for Dinner this time.
Thank you to the staff at Bateaux Office and to Jorge and the staff on board.

High Tea on the Thames, what an afternoon. Beautiful views top Service on the Bateaux by Bhuiyan, always attentive and looked after every little details even after being so busy. We were stuffed with food. Would definitely recommend. Also the times are perfect. You on and off the boat in less than 2:30 hours.

The presentation and staff were excellent. The cruise up and down the Thames was beautiful and you could not wish for more. Food was OKish. Chicken was a bit tough.

However, we were done out of a bottle of wine & water!! This was a 70th birthday celebration and we had purchased this trip for our friends to include a half bottle of wine each, plus a half bottle of mineral water each. We then decided we would all go. Total of 8 people. When we queried where the included wine and water was for our friends we were told they had not validated their voucher. Strange as they were sitting at the table eating food with us!!!!

Considering how much extra prosecco + other wines we drank, the manageress insisted we were not going to receive our paid for wine and water, as shown on the voucher, for our friends birthday!!!!

I would recommend you check any vouchers thoroughly when you board to ensure you receive what you have paid for.

This was a disappointing end to a lovely day!!

We did the lunch cruise and it was a lovely experience from start to finish. Well organized, welcoming, and the boat was perfectly designed to maximize your views of the famous sights as you glide by. The food and service were great, and there is no better way to view the famous sights in London than cruising down the Thames, wine in hand, watching Big Ben pass by and Tower Bridge pass above. An absolute must for any trip to London.

Absolutely fabulous. We couldn’t ask for more, service was impeccable, food was served promptly and was really delicious. Great jazz music playing in the background too. Nothing was too much hassle. View was stunning on a bright winters sunday. Do not hesitate to book, we are definitely going to return to try the evening cruise. Thank you so much for the amazing service and experience. We loved every minute

Something a little different from the standard London restaurant experience. The view from your table in the 'Glass Room' changes as you cruise down the Thames and you could almost forget that you are on a boat as the restaurant layout, decor and vibe would be equally at home in a city-centre building...but then you wouldn't get the views!

From greeting to farewell the staff and crew made the 2 1/2 hour Sunday lunch cruise an amazing experience. The food and service were spot-on and the quality and cleanliness first class.

It made our wedding anniversary extra special.

I wish Jorge and his team all the best coming out of these difficult times and hope that many people return to dining out in style on the Thames with you all.

Would book again.

Sunday Lunch cruise for two with Prosecco, a bottle of wine and views to die for. A fabulous day out yesterday (17th July). Seated by one of the panoramic windows, in the rear section of the boat, attended by a lovely waitress who left us wanting for nothing. Excellent 3-course meal - served without any kind of rush - which allowed us to enjoy the trip from both inside and outside the boat. Can't praise this event enough.

Thank you to Jorge and the crew on the Bateaux London River Thames Cruise experience for Sunday Lunch. The food, drink and atmosphere with lovely live jazz band music was superb - thank you for making Mum/ Grandma‘a 70th and 4 other birthdays so special.

Only managed to take a couple of the food pictures: starter was courgette pesto tartlet, dessert was lemon posset. I forgot to take a picture of the yummy roast chicken breast served with duck fat roasted potatoes, plenty of veg & topped with gravy.

We highly recommend this special cruise for event or occasion, if you something different and memorable. We are definitely booking our tickets for the night cruise for the great food, live music music and watch the star above as we sail along.

We have visited London every year since 1975 for a 7 day break.
We've experienced some wonderful venues such as London Eye, Buckingham Palace, Kew, Shard, Oxo building etc etc. You can forget about these venues, the very special and superb outing is "The Sunday Lunch Jazz Cruise " on the river Thames. The lunch was delicious, all the staff, especially ( Nu No ) were attentive, professional, polite & couldn't be any more helpful. The star of the cruise was Jorge, he's the Gentleman who made the whole experience a joy to behold ! The cruise would never be the same if Jorge was not on board.
We can't wait to return in 2022 !!
Take care Jeff & Gerry Stewart
