Unfortunately, there were a few people sitting at the next table who were very loud and made it difficult to enjoy the great music. From the half it was really great. There were just no comments on the piano game as described. But it's worth it just for the view and the great lighting of the buildings. And also the food was very tasty and the staff and the musicians were great.

First a perfect sunset, then dusk and later the lights of the magnificent buildings on both sides of the Danube. Our (first) stay in Budapest could not have started better! If you book the piano battle, you sit in the upper, smaller dining room of the ship, where there are only two rows of tables. Each table is therefore right next to the window, which can be opened. We liked the music (pop music) and the two pianists played very well. The three-course menu, which offered the option of choosing between different dishes, also tasted good. We didn't book the drinks as all "inclusive", but paid for them individually, which was the cheaper option for us. The staff were all very nice. We spent three pleasant, entertaining and well-organized hours on this boat trip.

wonderful music and view, food ok, service ok. We paid 30 extra euros to have a table by the window but in the piano Battle room all tables are by the window so we were really upset about this. Also, people who book a 2 courses dinner are served food only after 6 courses people have finished their first two courses, which means you can get really hangry.
