La Réserve sur Seine

Cruise the sparkling waters of the Seine aboard an elegant motoscafo to admire the most beautiful monuments of Paris, as a couple or with friends… To celebrate the arrival of summer, La Réserve Paris invites you to an original glamorous escapade, enchanted by the gourmet cuisine of Michelin two-starred chef Jérôme Banctel.

As the golden light of evening lights up the banks of the Seine, all aboard for an unforgettable gourmet cruise intended for all devotees of the capital. Comfortably seated on the leather benches of a vintage motoscafo, prepare for the magical sight of timeless Paris, while a dedicated butler watches over every detail. All that remains is to savor the romance of the moment and the three-course menu prepared by Jérôme Banctel, the Michelin two-starred chef of La Réserve Paris. Depending on the inspiration of the day, he revisits the gourmet repertoire that has shaped his reputation: Miso salmon with citrus fruit; Lemon caviar veal tartar; Blue lobster salad, green beans and sesame goma sauce, without forgetting dessert and mignardises. A unique experience in Paris, with La Réserve’s emblematic sense of refinement, to be gifted as a special occasion or for the pleasure of seeing Paris in a new light.

For this standout river crossing of Paris, the vintage motoscafo bearing the colors of La Réserve Paris starts from the splendid Alexandre III bridge, a stone’s throw from the palace hotel on Avenue Gabriel. The boat glides past iconic monuments – the Eiffel Tower, then the Place de la Concorde, the Jardin des Tuileries, the Pont des Arts, the Louvre, the Hôtel de Ville, Notre-Dame Cathedral – before turning around at the upper end of the Île Saint-Louis, heading for the Pont de l’Alma and back to the quayside. The hotel’s resident guests have the privilege of using this legendary boat whenever they wish, such as for a Parisian breakfast in the pure light of a summer morning; or a glass of Michel Reybier champagne accompanied by delicious Comté cheese gougères to celebrate a special occasion… The Concierges and the crew are there to organize every detail of an ultra-chic, entirely personalized escapade.
