We went last Saturday for celebrating my wife birthday for a night diner cruise. The Libelule has been renovated and operates again on the Annecy lake. The venue itself is very nice. Great view thanks to large windows. Think to reserve in advance and ask a table along the windows. Service has been somehow lengthy. It took close to 20... More

This same company offers lake tours in slightly smaller boats (compared to the Libellue). The tour was fantastic, gorgeous views that you can't see from land. There are few places where you can get off and look around, and then catch the next boat. If its a little chilly, the downstairs cabin will keep you warm. We find it totally... More

Poor service, food was nothing to write home about, expensive. Seems like a money-making boat with no charm. Find another place for eating and another boat for sightseeing!

My girlfriend and I were on holiday in Morzine and out one night trip to Annecy was meant to be one of the highlights of the holiday, and this dinner in... More

We were lucky to be able to book a table for 2 on the Libellule for the 6th of August fireworks. I was a little bit uneasy about the fact of spending 5 hours on a boat, I was worried I might get bored. But everything was so perfect that I was surprised when we came back, I would have... More

Wanted to do something nice for our last night in France. Made a trip to Annecy just to take this dinner cruise on our way home. There was a mix up with our reservation but the staff did a great job settling it. Wait staff provided fair service. Food was too fancy for our liking, overpriced, limited selection and not... More

My friend and I treated ourselves to this .. it is a bit pricey but lovely. The service was fabulous and the food, not a big choice looked amazing.. taste didn't quite live up to the presentation but was ok! The live music and dancing while cruising around the lake with all the lovely lights was lovely :)

A bit pricey, food was presented fancy, and tasted good. Singer was decent. Dinner cruise was a bit disappointing in that most of the ride is after sunset, but you still get to see the entire lake without breaking a sweat, when you'd most likely be sitting at dinner anyway. Ride was smooth, service was good.

Visited this restaurant along with 30 people from work and we all agreed upon the same thing, AMAZING views and Horrible food. We got a 4 course meal ant the only thing I enjoyed was a piece of manchego cheese that we got between the main course and the desert. I am still not sure what the starter was, the... More

We celebrated our 25th Wedding anniversary with and evening dinner cruise. The event was quite informal the service excellent in French and English. Menu was more limited than a land based restaurant and pricey but of course included the price of the cruise. The crew did produce a celebration sweet for us which was a nice touch. A nice night...
