Must say I was dubious of what to expect but overall it was a great worthwhile experience . Service was out outstanding . Didn’t get our servers name to give a shout out but we we are on table 22 on 6th Nov lunch time cruise . Such a nice sweet knowledgeable person who made our day great . Food was very impressive . You don’t expect it from a mass produced menu but it was actually the best roast I have paid for in a restaurant. The package was well worth the money . The jazz was also very enjoyable

A pleasant Thames cruise down to Greenwich and back. A nice boat, good table facilities and very helpful staff, we were served by Miguel who did a very good and attentive job for our table of 12 to celebrate a family 90th birthday. At close to a hundred pounds a head, it was probably priced about right as an all inclusive luncheon cruise. However, the menu was very disappointing. Appreciating that there are a few vegetarians out there and it is important for restaurants to offer a vegetarian and vegan option for those who want it but i don't think we have quite got to the point that it has to pushed onto everyone. 2 starters both vegetarian and 2 main courses: Chicken or a Cauliflower Steak! Not exactly a great choice. Did advise the lady who asked if everything was OK.

The views of London from the Thames, the service, the quality of the meal. The jazz could have been livelier with an energized trio: piano, sax and bass

Food and service was excellent, can’t big it enough. However the Viator booking was crap beyond belief. Viaritor said boarding was at 11:00 and back at 13:30. In reality it was boarding at 12:00, departure at 13:00 and back at 15:30………REALLY not impressed as we misread our next booking. In future will book direct and stuff the 3rd party booking site that can’t get their act together

The presentation and staff were excellent. The cruise up and down the Thames was beautiful and you could not wish for more. Food was OKish. Chicken was a bit tough. However, we were done out of a bottle of wine & water!! This was a 70th birthday celebration and we had purchased this trip for our friends to include a half bottle of wine each, plus a half bottle of mineral water each. We then decided we would all go. Total of 8 people. When we queried where the included wine and water was for our friends we were told they had not validated their voucher. Strange as they were sitting at the table eating food with us!!!! Considering how much extra prosecco + other wines we drank, the manageress insisted we were not going to receive our paid for wine and water, as shown on the voucher, for our friends birthday!!!! I would recommend you check any vouchers thoroughly when you board to ensure you receive what you have paid for. This was a disappointing end to a lovely day!!

High Tea on the Thames, what an afternoon. Beautiful views top Service on the Bateaux by Bhuiyan, always attentive and looked after every little details even after being so busy. We were stuffed with food. Would definitely recommend. Also the times are perfect. You on and off the boat in less than 2:30 hours.

Sunday Lunch cruise for two with Prosecco, a bottle of wine and views to die for. A fabulous day out yesterday (17th July). Seated by one of the panoramic windows, in the rear section of the boat, attended by a lovely waitress who left us wanting for nothing. Excellent 3-course meal - served without any kind of rush - which allowed us to enjoy the trip from both inside and outside the boat. Can't praise this event enough.
