Savor every last drop or bite. The foie gras was amazing as well as my lamb shank. Do make sure you ask your server to point out places of interest to go to. Take your time and enjoy your meal. The presentation, guest service, the taste and ambiance were perfect.

This is a definite must if you visit Paris. Food 10/10 Service 10/10 Ambiance 10/10 Drinks not cheap but hey ho it's a special occasion. I would recommend this to anyone. By far the best of the river cruises.

Do not hesitate to do this! This was second time onboard and it was just as special as the first. The cruise alone is a treat and then you add a fabulous dining experience. The staff is wonderful from the gentleman you ring to reserve to the captain. It truly is a special memory.

We were hot, thirsty and on our way to the Notre Dame after being crammed in with thousands of other tourists at The Louvre. We all gobbled down amazing salads. Get the warm goat cheese on crostini salad. Ridiculous and healthy.

How are evening on Le Claude was beautiful, magical, and romantic. The food was delicious, the boat was beautifully appointed with gentle lighting. The views along the Seine in the evening were grand. We came around a bend to the Eiffel tower just as the lights began to sparkle and flash up and down the entire height of it! Perfect... More

Wonderful experience, delicious food menu, great service, although we reached a bit late they still gladly accommodated us in a very nice spot due to a last minute cancellation. The trip is worth every penny especially for a couple like us that are new to the city. Great views of Eiffel tower and other attractions by night. Tip: be there... More

We went for dinner 2 weeks ago. The setting and staff where lovely and very attentive. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience however I am a vegetarian and I found the vegetarian option very limited and to be honest below average. We went for the less expensive menu option and the starter was goats cheese in pastry which was tasty however... More

This intimate, beautiful wooden river barge has charm to spare. From the moment you walk up to the boat you know you are in for something special. Greeted at the gangway by the concierge and captain, you are taken to your table. Your waiter greets you and brings champagne and hors d'heurves, included in the price of the meal. The... More

Absolutely! The boat is historic, not over crowded, service and staff friendly/very attentive. And the food, well they didn't get the 33rd best restaurant in Paris serving poor food. Starter, entree and desert were superb. A definite must for a dinner cruise.
