    Great atmosphere provided by the live gipsy musicians! Phenomenal performance on the violins and chello as well as on the cimballom! We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and I have asked for a serenade just for my wife! Amazing performance! Don’t forget to tip! The food was the the most amazing but tasty and good selection! Exceptional views from either side of the boat!

    Really enjoyed this. The music was brilliant and entertaining and there was a good choice of food. I would have liked it more if it were longer...I would have enjoyed a bit more time to relax listening to the music or looking out at the water and sights with a drink.

    Dinner was good. Hosts should announce that the food gets replenished so there isn’t a mad rush and people shoving. The way they organised everyone at the ticket booth to the river (10min walk) was odd and disorganised. There should be a clearer system. First 30 people leave 730, next 30 people leave 740 etc etc. This may also minimise rushing to get “a good seat”. It was difficult to take photos of the view whilst at dinner because of the glare of all the inside lights. A few recommendations: turn the lights down. Sit people with others from their own country to make the experience more enjoyable.
