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.

Had dinner at Spoon one night, as the setting is absolutely amazing on the river with view over the Danube and the Buda castle. Food wasn't quite as expected, not bad, but very tasteless, so had to ask for seasoning for everything.

Went there for a romantic dinner. Live piano music and the water front makes it a cozy place. The drinks, food and wine was fine. We were - somewhat unorthodox - only allowed to order the later five minutes after our entrées were served. Later first wrong mains were brought to us and subsequently we had to wait more than...

The beautiful setting of this high-end boat restaurant and lounge, excellent food and perfect service is all one can ask for on a balmy summer evening in Budapest. We choose it based on my previous experience with this place and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent, real haute cuisine, service faultless and the view on the Danube and... More

This lovely cafe is a stationary boat sitting in the Danube. The food is excellent, the menu varied, the view exceptional, and the entertainment lovely. It has one of the most beautiful bathrooms I have ever seen.

Good waiting staff - attentive and friendly. Excellent food and good choice of wine. Location is second to none in Budapest and as dusk falls, the major buildings on the other side of the river positively glow as they are lit up. Try to get an outside table (in the summer) and look up to the castle and the Chain... More

We had a cruise booked on Legenda so we wanted a place to eat first. We ordered appetizer then salads. Ordered another one just like it because it was so good. It had fruit and cheese in greens I think. So good. Great view and service. Lovely evening
