I was very disappointed with this dinner cruise.I have previously been on this cruise and was extremely happy with it which is why I purchased the cruise as a thankyou present.We were seated at a table which was squashed between 2 others so we were not able to get out of our seats during the cruise.When the wine was opened it was spilt on the table.Our meal was hurried,my uncle had stale bread with his Duck foie gras,we had to ask for our tea and coffee and when it came we had to ask for milk and were told sorry there was no milk and were offered and given custard.I was extremely upset as this was supposed to be the highlight of our stay in France.I realise that this was the early dinner cruise however it was too hurried and perhaps they need to allow longer for the cruise and dinner.It was certainly not worth the money I paid.I have tried to contact the Bateaux Mouches company but have not been able to directly speak to someone
Et bien pour couronner le tout au moment d'embarquer pour le fabuleux diner-croisière la cie des bateaux -mouches ne me trouvais pas dans ces réservations et il a fallu parlementer et justifier du règlement pour enfin pouvoir y accéder .
Par contre tout c'est bien passé par la suite et je ne peux que recommander cette soirée.
The dinner was good and the wait staff was friendly. Our disappointment came from unwashed windows. Even though it was misting rain on the night we went on the dinner cruise the windows were still dirty. The musical accompaniment was not what I expected. The music was just background music, not what I would call musical accompaniment. The photographer was an added treat.
It was lovely, but a bit rushed. It would have been nice to have had longer to finish our food and wine. We also were a bit disappointed that despite telling the staff that I needed gluten free food, when booking, there were no gluten free items speicifically marked, on the menu. There was also no gluten free bread available. Which seems crazy as almost every other restaurant I have been in recently, if you order in advance, is perfectly happy to provide GF bread or rolls. And when it came to tea and coffee, it had to be black. Why not have milk available, not everyone wants black tea or black coffee.
The cruise was excellent. The meal exceeded expectations
I was disappointed to have gone to a too early sitting. I wanted to see the Seine at night with the lights. I really think some guidance should be given
Also,better directions as to where to find the boat are definitely necessary. We should have been told to look for bateau Mapuche. We walked all over before finding the right location. Fortunately,we gave ourselves plenty of time
I'd booked this as a surprise for my partner and was really looking forward to the experience, however it fell short of my expectations. We were supposed to board at 5.30 pm but it was 20 mins late. Live music was promised but there was none. The meal was very good and the staff were attentive.
