Everything was perfect. Lovely greeting from Captain as you boarded. Seated by charming waiter with a glass of champagne. Service was great and not intrusive. The meal and presentation of it was 10 out of 10. Went to top deck on the hour just before...More

For dining on the river, it is the best! Small atmosphere and nice style. Recommend the more expensive menu if you budget allows as the timing of the courses is nice with the ride. Overall, lovely experience.

Romantic and perfect in every way. Great vegetarian option and the wood and glass boat was exquisite. Dinner on the sparkling Seine at twilight ... it couldn't have been better.

This was a great way to spend our last night in Paris. The boat is small and beautiful - not one of those oversized dinner barges. Both the food and service were excellent. We would definitely book again.

Honestly, this would really depend on the day. The day we went it really wasn't that bad, but depending on how sensitive you are, you'd have to make a call and see if it's worth it. It really was beautiful though. And to... More

It depends on what your definition of casual is. I'd recommend wearing a collar shirt and blazer/sport coat for men and a nice dress for women. I wore a 2-pc suit with a bowtie.
