An aperitif will be served as the boat leaves the quay and the adventure on the water begins. Heading for the Ile de la Cité, the boat will show you the monuments of Paris, but also its bridges, its quays, its houses with a view on the Seine. Paris History is in front of you ! Once you have made your choice from our à la carte menu, the dishes will be brought to you as you go along, leaving you time, between one dish and the next, to chat, admire the outside through our bay windows or why not climb onto the upper deck for an unforgettable and romantic break. Don't forget to take your camera or your mobile phone with you, especially when the boat passes in front of the Eiffel Tower at the precise moment when it shines with all its lights. A piano and a violin will accompany your dinner, creating a joyful and romantic atmosphere. If you're coming on board for a special occasion, don't hesitate to tell our staff: they will make it even more special.
