I don't think you could get a better view than this. From this restaurant boat's mooring on the Seine you can see the gothic facade of Notre Dame from below. Go at night when it is lit up for an even more spectacular view. The menu is relatively pricey (approx 10 euros a cocktail, 6 euros a glass of wine,... More

Fantastic Staff, Delightful Cuisine, Unique Flavours and great food presentation, forget about the big expensive Restaurants like La Mere Catherine near Sacre-Coeur and Le Procope in the 6th arrondissement this Restaurant is one of Paris's gems.

If you want a very romantic restaurant this is the place, located opposite of the Notre Dame this restaurant sure gives a great view! Just dont eat here. Then you are in the risk of ruining date night and have to leave half way through your burlesque show because you will be peeing with your butt. And I still am... More

We booked this for our 25th wedding Anniversary dinner while having a city break in Paris. The food was good staff friendly and watching the boats go passed while we ate was very entertaining. As darkness fell Notre Dame lights up and Paris at its best sparkling in the rain and glow of the evening lights.

The location and view is great, right outside the Notre Dame. Can't go wrong with that. They opened a bit later than they were supposed to so many patrons were waiting outside. Service is decent since one woman served all of the tables. She was pretty nice. The food itself though was average, as was the value.

I was looking for something different for a dinner a Saturday night. The restaurant is on a boat and has a theatre. We decided to combine dinner and show. It was a great experience, menu is very original, prices are decent, and it is very convenient just to go downstairs and have a show. Great place to go, we did... More

We did not eat, but saw the "Cabaret Burlesque" Four young women doing nothing but undressing. Two times each in exactly the same manner. One man was a very good dancer. Otherwise no singing, dancing or playing any instruments. Pointless jokes. Do not spend your money and time here.

Went to La Nouvelle Seine for a conference dinner. It's a stationary boat well furnished as a rather large restaurant (together with a theatre below decks). I enjoyed the food but it wasn't spectacular. Appetiser and desert were significantly better than the indifferent steak for main course. Service was good and friendly. I'd probably go back for the atmosphere and... More

Came here using a La Fourchette deal (entree or dessert with plat for 40 or 50% off I believe) and for a friend's birthday. Got the nice big table at the end of the boat. Must say that with the all glass windows, it's a really nice view of Notre-Dame and the surroundings (though I agree that every once in... More

Its a Barge on the Seine facing the Notre Dame Cathedral... whats not to love? Ambience and Charm 10+. The staff are bilingual and friendly (not always easy to find in the city)! Drinks and drink service is good and prices are correct. We watched a Stand Up Comic (Richard MARX) in the cute
