Appetizer was tasty but too little. The rest of the food was adequate and tasty. Music was nice but Elton John or Prince are classics that the singer and guitarist don't know/can't play when I asked. What a shame.

Perfect romantic setting with great food and good music❤ Highly recommended. Only minus was that you do not get a non-alcoholic wine / beer on the boat.

Danube cruise seems like a must in Budapest and doing it while eating a delicious dinner makes it a 10x better experience. Defenitely recommend it!

Very friendly staff. The 4-course menu was high quality and very tasty. Price-equivalent ratio excellent. I can absolutely recommend this dinner.

The food was great, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere just can’t be beat. Seriously gorgeous views.
