Description: 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.

Ask to sit or reserve a table close to the window to enjoy the one of the best views in town. The restaurant is located inside anchored boat in Danube river just in front of Buda Castle.

Awesome view of course of the castle and that is their number one selling point. A little in the higher end when it comes to prices but above average taste. Their Angus beef steak is great. Make sure you make a reservation in advance to avoid waiting.

Stopped here before heading to the castle. This is a really tasteful restaurant to say it's a boat. Even the toilets were fab. Food was tasty with a twist. I had black pasta with shrimps and parmesan and my hubby had the paradelle pasta with Angus beef. Both tasty and a great portion size. Would visit again and recommend.

The meal at Spoon is unforgettable. It was simply amazing. The boat moored on the Danube, with a magnificent view towards the Buda side. In the evening, the buildings and bridges beautifully lit, it's like sitting in a wonderland. The food was incredibly good. High-quality ingredients and very well cooked and presented. Waitress Roland ushered us through the ordering of... More

First night in Budapest we were looking for somewhere a little bit interesting to eat. Spoon is definitely on the expensive side for Budapest and I have to say the food was ok. Slightly better than average. The courses were fine and the presentation was good but there's nothing revolutionary or amazing about the food they serve here. Nor is... More

We were 5 of us for lunch and chose Spoon for its excellent location. The setting is great, the staff is smily but not very organized. We were attended by too many waiters, they got confused sometimes. The food was very good, they accommodated extra wishes as well. Especially the lamb and the chocolate dessert is recommendable. Wine list is... More

Restaurant is kind of elegant and service is according the restaurant style. Food is generally good but would have expected better. Had lamb ribs, very good, but served on a bed of barley that was too much compared to the lamb ribs quantity. Price was at the end affordable. Recommend for a romantic dinner. Not recommended if you easily suffer... More
