This is the second time we’ve taken the dinner cruise and we’d recommend that anyone visiting Budapest take one. The food was to an incredibly high standard and the service didn’t disappoint. The only thing was it was a little cold on the boat so they should advise people to wrap up warm if the heating isn’t that good.

This was an amazing way to experience the beautiful Budapest at night! We loved the atmosphere in the boat, the live music and the delicious food. We took the 4 courses option, which includes: an appetiser, a soup, a main dish, a dessert and a welcome drink. We had window seats, which made the experience even more charming. Would definitely recommend!

Absolutely fantastic experience, don’t let bad reviews put you off, it’s worth every penny - the mrs LOVED it. Sure the portion sizes aren’t MASSIVE but it’s advertised as ‘a la carte’ so what do you expect? It certainly filled us up! The music was a nice touch and not at all too loud. Top tip would be to request a window seat near the bar end (which we were fortunate to get lucky with).
