“Excellent trip on the Lake with lovely food and wine”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

MS Libellule is surely one of the best "dinner cruise" experiences in Europe. Of course, the views of the lake and mountains give this restaurant a great start. There cannot be a more delightful way to have a trip on the Lake. All food is prepared on board by master chefs. You have a small choice, and you can see what's going to be on offer before you commit to buying your ticket. The food provided was up to the standard we've experienced on major liners, such as Queen Mary 2. The service standard was excellent, and the presentation most attractive. Our dining experience was made all the more enjoyable by the discrete commentary drawing our attention to highlights of the Lake. You can do this trip for lunch or dinner. We were pleased that we opted for lunch with the Sun high in the sky, showcasing the sublime natural beauty of the lake and mountains. In the evening you won't see quite so much with the Sun low in the sky or set. If you have only one full day in Annecy you should plan to have lunch or dinner on the lake if you'd like to have a lovely meal in a beautiful environment

“Even better than the first time 8 years ago!”
Reviewed October 4, 2011

This is the second time that my husband and I have made the long journey to Annecy, in order to partake of the Gourmet Lunch Cruise on board the wonderful MV Libellule.

The weather was beautiful, the ambience was perfect, the food was delicious, the service was excellent and warm, and the company (we got into conversation with a charming French couple on the next table) was very friendly.

Altogether a wonderful day - and an early Wedding Anniversary present for us!

We shall definitely make a third visit to Annecy in the future, just to re-create this lovely experience.
