Wonderful view especially at night! The food and the desserts were also excellent, but pricey. The service was below average (as everywhere in Budapest). They rely too much on the wonderful view that they neglect the actual condition on the boat. We dined next to...More

Very stylish restaurant/bar recommended by concierge at our Sofitel Hotel nearby. Enjoyed the view, the service and the mid-afternoon appetizers - great spot even though a tad pricey!

Went to celebrate a birthday. Food was tasty but definitely not cheap. Would recommend the lamb and duck main course. A stop if not to check out the views which is stunning is a must.

Spoon has clearly been created with tourists in mind. It's a vessel on the Danube, close to the Chain Bridge with a lovely view of the Buda side of the river, especially at night when the monuments are all lit up. There are dining areas...More

The Spoon as a restaurant boat is located in the central spot of Budapest-Hungary. This 75m engine less fine dining event and restaurant place is able to provide it's services in 365 days. From top it has two hugh terraces and an additional one with glass sided walls, the winter garden. On the middle level we have two different designed restaurants, we call them the "Cafe" wich is more like a real fine dining hall and the "Lounge", that is a luxury relax eating area. As an additional service we provide a night club in the bottom level, with direct access from the Lounge. It's design is about the arabican fantasy, it's called the "The Oriental". On each level we have a full kitchen, that makes the Spoon able to serve every type of event and customer in different timing and every season of the year. Our goal is to give high quality service to the corporate events, private parties and of course as the location the Sponn is right on the most wanted spot of Budapest, we are a must see restaurant.
