Feast your eyes, ears and taste buds with Paris Seine

The City of Light, the capital of romance, the world's 1st tourist destination thanks to its heritage and gastronomic wonders... Paris has no shortage of qualifiers! And there's one activity that confirms them all in one go: dinner cruises on the Seine offer lovers an illuminated discovery of its emblematic monuments over a fine meal. Ready to embark?

The Seine, Paris's most beautiful avenue

While the river has historically contributed to the economic development of the French capital (and it's no coincidence that its main monuments are located on its quays), it has only been used for leisure activities since the 19th century, with the advent of the first "bateaux-mouches" for the 1862 Universal Exhibition. Originating on the banks of the Saône, these boats were immediately adopted by Parisians as a means of getting around, before the metro, another means of transport launched at a World's Fair (in 1900), gradually supplanted them.

At the beginning of the 20th century, the population of Paris rose sharply, and with it the density of automobile traffic. River navigation became attractive once again and was structured with the launch of a dedicated fleet in 1950. Since then, this mode of transport, favoured from the outset by Tsar Alexander III, has never ceased to seduce Paris lovers, to the point where it has become one of the must-do activities on offer. 

Feast your eyes, ears and taste buds on Paris dinner cruises

What a pleasure it is to discover, far from the crowds and while enjoying tasty dishes, heritage jewels lit up at nightfall: the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, the Musée d'Orsay and even... the Pont Alexandre III :).

Just a few of the monuments to be admired on a fabulous dinner cruise in Paris: that's what website of Paris Seine has been offering for 30 years on its restaurant boats, while at the same time immersing you in another of the capital's (cultural) heritages: the cabaret atmosphere.

While enjoying the panoramic view and a glass of champagne, the meal is entertained by live singers or pianists during the 2-hour cruise.

All the better to appreciate the recipes inspired by the history of French gastronomy and concocted from local seasonal produce by constantly renewed chefs.

Superb welcome. Great atmosphere. Top service!

While this atypical guided tour of Paris is particularly popular with lovers, the experience is of course open to all, and can also be enjoyed during the day: a convivial lunch on the terrace with friends, an evening of discovery with the family, a gourmet getaway with colleagues... Whether it's for Valentine's Day, New Year's, Christmas or a seminar, any occasion is a good opportunity to suspend time a little in a magical setting.

A setting that, for an even more successful journey into the history of Paris, can take on the appearance of the legendary Maxim's restaurant. With its jazz ambience, Art Nouveau decor and gourmet menu, you'll be transported back to the Belle Epoque for an unforgettable evening.

Bon voyage!
