I would highly recommend this cruise. The food was excellent and you don’t walk away hungry. The wine was delicious. After seeing several other boats go past us I knew we made the right choice. It was spendy, but worth every penny. I had the beef, it was so tender, like butter. My husband had the chicken and said it was great.

Best birthday gift ever!

This was a wonderful experience to celebrate my sister's birthday! My mom and sisters were so delighted with our table selection- We chose the window seats with a view- and the selection of food and beverages offered throughout the ride. The boat was very clean and comfortable, and the check-in process was very smooth. I really appreciated the waiting area with seats so that my mother, who is limited mobility, could sit while we waited for departure. I would recommend this boat ride to everyone who is planning to visit Paris!

Our party of 6 did the lunch cruise and it was wonderful. This was our 1st cruise and the staff was extremely helpful and accommodating to additional request. The host on board gave us extra attention and explained some of the places as we sailed by. We'll do again.

Common questions

Why choose Bateaux Parisiens for a lunch cruise on the Seine ?

The restaurant boats of this company are the most modern and the most glazed that exist on the Seine. People appreciate the quality of the food, the impeccable customer service, the Port de la Bourdonnais embarkation at the foot of the Eiffel Tower and the beauty of the panoramic views of the most beautiful monuments in Paris.

At what time does the Bateaux Parisiens cruise with lunch depart?

Check-in is done at decks n°5 or n°7 until 12:30. The boats leaves every day of the week at 12:45 pm for a tour of approximately two hours. The return to the quay is therefore scheduled at 14:45 Please note that, as with planes in the sky, boats on the Seine are subject to very strict schedules and will not be able to wait for latecomers.

What is the price of a lunch cruise in Paris with Bateaux Parisiens?

The Bateaux Parisiens offer three options: the Etoile (Star) option at € 69, the Privilege option at € 79 and the Premier option at € 99. Whatever service is chosen, children benefit from a reduced price of € 34.

Do I need to book the Bateaux Parisiens lunch cruise?

Coming without a reservation at noon is always possible but it is very risky because the lunch cruises of the most famous boat-restaurant company on the Seine are often sold-out. It is therefore advisable to book as early as possible in order to guarantee your table.

What are the differences between lunch options?

The differences between the Etoile, Privilege and Premier options are found mainly in the quality of the wines and in the location on board the boat, either in the center, by the bay window or at the bow. Good to know: the Premier package gives access to the VIP area at the bow of the boat on round tables, but that does not necessarily mean that you will be seated directly next to a window! But don't let that slow you down in your choice of excellence: the prow of the Bateaux Parisiens is fully glazed from floor to ceiling and the passage under the bridges is all the more magical.

Do we have to choose a menu when booking the lunch cruise?

You do not have to choose the menu when booking in advance of your lunch (except for groups of more than 14 people). You will make your choice of starter, main course and dessert once seated at your table. Good to know: in addition to French, the menu available on board is translated into 9 foreign languages, namely English, Spanish, German, Russian, Japanese, Korean, Italian, Chinese and Portuguese.

Is there a vegetarian menu for the lunch cruise on the River Seine?

Real dishes have been specially designed for vegetarians. For more specific diets (gluten-free, lactose-free, diabetic, etc.), it will be necessary to notify the kitchens in advance and therefore notify this when booking (at least 24 hours in advance).

Do children have a suitable menu?

Children eat like adults, but in appropriate proportions. The menus change every 6 months or so to display fresh, seasonal produce. It is possible to heat a baby's bottle on board all boats.

Are there alcohol-free lunch packages?

It is quite possible to ask to replace the aperitifs and wines included in the services by non-alcoholic drinks. The price of the lunch cruise will remain the same.

Where is the pier for the Bateaux Parisiens cruises with lunch?

The embarkation port for a lunch cruise aboard the Bateaux Parisiens is on the right bank of the Seine, in the Bourdonnais port in the seventh arrondissement of Paris, at the foot of the Eiffel Tower and the Iéna bridge.

Are the Bateaux Parisiens boats wheelchair accessible?

The boats of the Bateaux Parisiens company are all wheelchair accessible. The ability to access by car or taxi to boarding even makes it a wise choice for people with reduced mobility (PRM). Be careful, however, because access to the boat toilets is via stairs.

What is the difference between booking and offering a lunch cruise?

You book a lunch cruise for a specific date. By going to the "Offer a Gift valid for 1 year" tab, you can purchase a lunch cruise gift card for the person of your choice. The lucky one will then have 12 months to go to our site to reserve the date of his lunch on board a Parisian boat.

How to book a lunch cruise in Paris for a group?

For groups from 10 people up to the privatization of one or more boats, our event specialists are at your disposal to make your experience memorable by telephone on 0033 182 831 204 or by filling out our Group Booking form - Cruise in Paris.

What to do before or after a lunch cruise aboard the Bateaux-Parisiens?

Here are some tips and ideas to make your lunch cruise on the Seine part of an unforgettable experience in Paris. The Bateaux-Parisiens are located under the Eiffel Tower which is itself right next to the Quai Branly Museum. Opposite, on the other side of the Seine, the Palais de Chaillot houses the Musée de l'Homme but also the Cité de l'Architecture which are worth seeing. In the gardens of the Trocadéro is the Paris Aquarium which will perfectly complement a lunch on the Seine in family.
