Description: Situe au pont d'Issy les Moulineaux, a dix minutes de la Tour Eiffel, le River Cafe est un lieu magique et bucolique dont on savoure le charme et l'elegance toute l'annee. Veritable jardin dans la ville, cette grande peniche vous accueille l'ete sur la terrasse verdoyante ou l'hiver au coin du feu de cheminee. La cuisine de ce restaurant tendance est au diapason, moderne, seduisante, avec une pointe de soleil. Le tout s'accompagne d'une carte des vins inventive. Pour vos receptions et evenements sur mesure au River Cafe, Sandrine repond a toutes vos envies.

Food is fabulous. Attention to detail is very good, very pleasant layout. Excellent as a venue for business lunches. Service is efficient, polite and with a smile. There's a valet parking service which great as it's not easy to park. Rate is not excessive (8 euros).
Had the sole with asparagus and mango tarte fine, which I can definitely recommend.

“Always spot on!”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

This restaurant is a firm family favourite. To begin with, the location is a little outside of Paris but please do not let this put you off dining there as it is well worth the extra travel. They have a parking-attendant service so you don't have to worry about parking your car! The second wow-factor point is the fact that the restaurant is actually a (non-moving) boat! The service there is always absolutely flawless (Gilbert deserves a special mention here!) and the cocktails are just as perfect. They have a pianist at weekends which is a lovely touch. The menu is varied without having too much on and features a 'specials of the day' section which is always nice. I have dined there countless times and have never been disappointed.
A bientôt!

“OK great location, but very LONG wait for orders to come”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Food OK, but a little pricy for your usual lunch budget. Nice peniche, and great view. It was almost a year ago, so next week I will go back to give a feedback, maybe they have improved service.

“live piano music, just fantastic”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Food was very good but overpriced.
The best attraction here was live piano music, just fantastic, especially if you like old French tunes.
