“Nice for an evening stroll”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

With any city its interesting to see it ticking over - or in the case of the quai, buzzing with interesting life, cafes, music, people strolling and the EDF hydroelectric power station open to the public free of charge. On Sunday as with some othe rtowns in France there are paintings for sale on the riverbank

“A bit seedy!”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

Normally the river cruises depart from here but, because of the highs water level, they are not currently running. The area is popular for people to eat their lunch by the river but there are also a lot of beer drinkers ( in the middle of the day) and it is not very clean. Not worth visiting unless the boats are ruining.

“Sunk Boat”
Reviewed February 21, 2014

This used to be a spot where people queued for boat trips. The boat appears to be in some difficulty and at the moment there are cranes on the Quai where the artists and drunk summer visitors used to mill about. Wait a few months and it might be sorted but right now - don't bother.

“A lovely part of the city”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

The Quai area is interesting, and it is well worth walking along as much of the river bank as you can
