Bateaux Mouches, Paris

On our weekend in Paris we had dinner on a boat on Saturday night.  Compagnie des Bateaux-Mouches is a company that has been operating on the river Seine for over 50 years. They have nine boats in total and five of them have got restaurants in them.
Smoked scallops on toast with olive oil was the starter and it was quite nice, maybe just a tad too oily and I think it would have been miles better served warm.
Roast lamb loin served with pan-fried winter vegetables tasted like lamb always tastes to me, like an old sock. I think it was beyond overcooked and chewy, the raw courgettes and couple of slices of carrot were not much better. And yes, that is a raw cherry tomato on top of it all.
The dessert, chocolate truffle with light coffee custard, was nicest dish of the bunch but so rich that I could not finish it. 
It was such a good night overall, food was not the most amazing but the whole experience with spectacular views of Paris gliding by when having dinner will be a nice memory to have.
friendly, extremely helpful staff that nothing 
seemed to be too much trouble

offers a gorgeous view to the city
