Spend a memorable and romantic evening on a 2-hour scenic cruise along the Danube River. Stare out at Budapest’s grandiose landmarks lit up along the river while you enjoy a traditional Hungarian dinner accompanied by live music.
Dinner is buffet-style and is served in the boat’s glass room which is air-conditioned in summer and heated in winter. After dinner, we recommend you climb to the open-air terrace that offer the best views of Budapest from the water.
The buffet includes various dishes such as cottage cheese with a traditional Hungarian dressing, vegatable soup (in winter), various hot dishes such as stewed cabbage, chicken paprikash, chicken with a cheese sauce, pork ribs with a mustard dressing, fish in a white wine sauce, and much more!
If you prefer dinner a little later, you can also book the same scenic cruise with dinner at 10pm.
While you have dinner, you’ll enjoy live music from three members of the Zoltán Kodály orchestra(including the Hungarian instrument cimbalom). Of course, they also accept requests.
Dinner includes one welcome drink, as well as a soft drink or a glass of white or red wine and water.
Please note that the dinner tables will be shared between 4 to 10 diners, so you may have to share a table with people you don't know. The exact number will depend on the availability on the day.
