    Well-balanced Italian-style dishes, an excellent part of an evening strolling between the dishes, bridges and monuments of the capital.

    Access to the boat is dirty, smelly and scary. But once in the boat, the atmosphere, the meal and the ride are very pleasant.

    Star Star Star Star Star - This evening would have been perfect with children if the planned route had been respected.

    Hello We appreciated the excellent value for money (if the planned program had been carried out!) but there was a BIG PROBLEM because the planned cruise could not take place because the Seine was too high! As a result, the walk in BOULOGNE was of no interest. We would have appreciated being warned and being able to postpone the event. We still hope to be able to repeat this dinner with our grandchildren, who were unfortunately somewhat disappointed!

    Star Star Star Star Star - very good but not heated enough we were very cold;

    We were a group of 20 for this birthday party on the Théo boat, and everyone was delighted. We chose the upper open-air pontoon, which allowed us to enjoy all the Parisian monuments, and to scare ourselves by going under the bridges! Those of us who were a little chilly had a nice soft plaid to warm up with. The meal was very good and copious, and the staff a little zany but very nice and friendly and totally at our service. The only small negative point: the birthday cake was tiny and rather disappointing, although very good. The booking went smoothly and I was able to communicate easily with the organizers to ask practical questions. I fully recommend this activity, whether you're a Parisian or a tourist.

    A very successful evening. We made the most of the boat's terrace, especially during the aperitif and at the end of the meal. It's a magical moment. The meal was simple and very good. I highly recommend

    We went there last night with some friends. The boat is small and very pleasant, fully glazed. The view from the Seine is absolutely magnificent. You can go up to the Roof Top during the cruise, for an aperitif or between two courses. Impeccable service and good Italian cuisine. We recommend it!
