We booked the cruise for our 1 year anniversary and we couldn't have had a better time anywhere in Paris. The crew were amazing, food was delicious and the manager went above and beyond to make our day that much more special even though he was not obligated to. Would definitely recommend the cruise.

Celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary, a dinner cruise on the Le Calife seemed to be a good idea. In fact, it was a GREAT idea! We were seated in the front, glassed-in section of the vessel with breathtaking views of Paris at night. Everything on the menu was delicious and the service was spectacular. Definitely a "must-do" when visiting this... More

Local French friends booked Le Calife to celebrate my sister's 60th birthday. We could not have had a better time. The boat is plenty large, but quaint. The food and service were delightful. The view?... well the view of Paris from the Seine speaks for itself. This is not a bateaux-mouches on which to get up and stroll around. It's... More

I booked this for a 60th birthday treat and couldn't have been happier with my choice. It was an outstanding experience for a special occasion; from the minute we were greeted I knew we were in excellent hands. The service was superb; the food delicious (like other reviewers my expectation of the food wasn't that high given previous experience on... More

We booked this cruise for my daughter's 26th birthday. I was reluctant and worried it would be a "cheesy" dinner cruise. I was so wrong. It proved to be one of our best experiences in Paris. The food was delicious and service excellent. However, the highlight was experiencing Paris at night from the Seine. It is difficult to express the... More

I expected great views with mediocre food given that it was prepared and served while underway on a bateau. I was wrong. The views were great (as expected) and the food matched. This was a lovely, quiet and classy way to enjoy an evening in Paris.

Unlike many of the larger commercial boats offering dinner cruises on the Seine Let Calife offers a much more intimate experience. Our group of four (two couples) had a table on the upper deck (definitely the best deck) and without exception we enjoyed all of the food served and excellent wines. Our waiter (Cho) was very attentive and made the... More

Although pretty much every food blog tells you not to do a Dinner cruise on the Seine I decided to take the plunge on my last visit to Paris. Bateau le Calife is a charming, intimate Vintage boat with walls of windows on each side as well as the roof in the bow (Front). I made the right choice as... More

We wanted to go somewhere different on our last night in Paris. I found this cruise and rang early in the morning, they were fully booked. So I asked if they could call us if there was a cancellation. We rang in the afternoon and the situation had not changed. I asked if we could come to the boat just... More

Booked the Calife in advance for our first evening in Paris; well what a fantastic choice we made! From start to finish it was perfect. We were seated in the middle deck with fantastic views. Aperitif to start were choux cheese balls: divine and a glass of fizz.We had the 69euro menu, I was a little worried as I am... More
