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!

I couldn't recommend this experience enough. Food was fantastic, the musicians were talented and music relevant to the atmosphere. There was no rushing, very relaxed with amazing views up and down the banks of the Danube.

The candle-lit dinner cruise was a great experience — the service was excellent, the music was quiet enough to be able to enjoy the others’ company and the departure and arrival on time. Would highly recommend!

Food was delicious and music was enjoyable and relaxing. Nice scenic ride. We were a family of three.

Good show and food was fine. The staff little empathy when you don't understand the language.
