Dinner with a view
April 15th 2024
Dinner on the Seine was a great way to have a good dinner (attentive service and excellent food) along with views of many of the important historical sites along the river. We paid extra to have a window table and did get one as promised, but it was close to a bulkhead that restricted our forward view. The entertainment was first class (piano and violin) without being too interruptive.
