My wife and I booked on to this as part of our 30th Wedding Anniversary celebration, having read reviews of all the different dinner cruises and it did not disappoint. It is one of the more expensive but the experience was first class, the food was fresh, tasty and very well presented and the wine on offer was good quality at a reasonable price. Our waitress (Nora) was very attentive and really welcoming/friendly and the 2 and a half hours just seemed to fly-by. I would fully recommend this dinner cruise.

This dinner cruise is not to be missed and is the best way to see Budapest all lit up at night.
You receive a glass of bubbles when you board and in the course of the two and a half hour cruise you go up and down the Danube.
During our cruise there were a couple singing and playing guitar, ideal background music for the dinner and it help set the ambiance.
The dinner is a four course affair with choices from a menu. There is no need to pre-book food as your order is taken shortly after you board. There is also an extensive drinks menu with cocktails, wine and soft drinks.
I have to say that the quality and presentation of the food was amazing. It would put some Michelin star restaurants to shame and it’s even more impressive when you consider its all freshly cooked on board. The staff are very friendly and nothing is too much trouble.
However the star of the show has to be Budapest lit up at night along the banks of the Danube. It looks amazing.
If you are in Budapest you have to take this dinner cruise, it’s not cheap but it’s worth every penny and I would go again in a heat beat. Absolutely brilliant.

Such an incredible way of experiencing panoramic views of Budapest at night. The food was delicious with wine pairings suggested (served by the bottle). The staff were attentive and there was live music throughout the evening from the moment we stepped on board.

I was a little worried about being cold, but thankfully it was very well heated. Try and get a window seat if possible as there are two middle rows of tables—still with a great view, but people in the way of photographs and more window glare from this angle.

Get there 20 minutes early to get seated and enjoy the sweet glass of Hungarian champagne. From the cruise, it’s a short walk to bars and the Ferris wheel if you wanted views from above too!

My recommendation is to avoid this, take a nighttime cruise with drink for max 45 mins and then book yourself a table for dinner. It’ll cost you less and you’ll enjoy it more.

Booked for my husbands 50th birthday meal (belated due to covid!), I thought a candle lit meal on the Danube would be romantic and memorable.

It wasn’t!

We had a set table, which was under a bunched up plastic roof cover, I had to argue to get us moved, which they did eventually.

The welcome drink was lukewarm ‘champagne’ and they were at pains to tell you the rest of the drinks were chargeable.

We set off late and then after 30 mins had to return to the dock to collect latecomers?! Food was desperately slow, music was awful (think twangy noodling guitars in a pseudo Shadows style) and the service was dire.

Starter (scallops) was one and a half tiny scallops with a smudge of sauce, consommé was overly salty, main course took over 2 hours to come out and was lukewarm with the dessert being the best course.

The view was lovely the first time, but you literally do the same loop multiple times, passing party boats booming dance music from the decks.

We couldn’t wait to get off :-(

The food was delicious. The staff was very polite. The views of the shoreline were beautiful. The ship started to depart on time, but had to dock again to collect tardy passengers, which is admirable, as it was only a few minutes.

WORD OF WARNING…if you are placed in front of the piano player (electronic piano), ask to be moved immediately. Candlelight dinners should be soft music. My friend and I literally had to shout at each other to communicate. The piano player was banging away and it was L-O-U-D. We asked politely for the piano music to be turned down, but they didn’t. It was unbearable. My ears were ringing an hour afterwords.
Also, be cautious that they don't try to charge you for drinks, etc. that you didn't order.

First i have to say, that i took the cruise, this time, without the dinner, since some years ago, i took it with , and was disappointed. It was a buffe service.The first people anjoyed it , part of the quests remaind with rests or with nothing.
Second , now in sommer time, the darkness comes after 21:00 hours, meaning that the first cruise, at 19:00 , looses the charm of the enlighten buildings along the Danube and Buda.
So, my advise is, to take the late one, and in advance. I was not lucky to catch it.
The views are fascinating at night and the music arise a charming atmosphere.
The only problem with the popular and good performers is their “ stickiness” ti each table too personally( for the tip off course ).

Candlelit dinner cruise, a great way to spend the evening, service & food were a much higher standard than expected, could even describe food as gourmet quality, champagne welcome drink, then choice of starter, then soups, mains and desserts. Drink prices also reasonable, 2 large wines, coffee liquors and Bailey's came to about £25. Buildings along River & bridges well lit giving a great display. The musicians also added to the ambience. Thoroughly recommended, thanks & Congratulations to the couple who got engaged right behind us 💑

We booked as a group of four on our first night in Budapest, it was a great way to see the city light up for the evening. The service was great and attentive, with gorgeous food and music.

Well worth the money!

It would be hard to pick a favourite part of this excellent experience.
From the welcoming and efficient staff to the superb food and excellent music, this was the highlight of my visit to Budapest.
Champagne on arrival, followed by an excellent menu, with plenty of choice.
I had Shrimp, tastefully served, pumpkin soup, tuna steak and a totally delicious panna cotta. The food was freshly prepared on board and efficiently served, to maintain temperature and freshness. Really lovely.
The views from the boat were breathtaking and we got some fantastic photos.
The couple who serenaded all night need a special mention as they had a tasteful, modern repertoire and the were at just the right level of sound, talking and listening to the music was never made easier.

The weather was fanatastic which allowed for amazing views and pictures. We were extremely fortunate to have had a table where the window was open producing an open air dining experiance.

The food was quite good with multiple options for every course. Loved the complimentary glass of sparkling wine at the beginning of the evening. Wine selection was very good and reasonably priced.
