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.

Thoroughly delicious food - really excellent quality and the view from the terrace was exceptional. Apparently the tables right by the danube get booked up four weeks in advance so I'd recommend booking before you go.

We wanted to have a dinner with a beautiful view and our choice was for Spoon thanks to the Lonely Planet guide. The position in front of the castle is beautiful, and the price is reasonable for this level of restaurant. Service is good, but you have to pay attention that food and drinks are handled by different people, and... More

If the weather is good you will probably need to book an outside table in advance. The food was good and amazing views. Ask the waiters to recommend dishes on the menu we followed their suggestions and were not disappointed.

Booking is easy via e mail and you will receive a confirmation. The menu and pricelist is online. The table was available at the agreed time, the orders were taken swiftly and the starters were good. There was a very limited choice of wine available by the glass, with most of the range only available by bottle which we did... More

The place is nice on a boat on the river, but the service is extremely slow even if kind, the food is pour - we paid € 60 for a stake that was not good - and it is extremely expensive. We paid € 140 in two persons, a way too much for the quality provided!

We tried going here on our last night of our vacation and everyone we encountered that worked here was extremely rude, especially the person who seated us upstairs and our waiter. Avoid.

Thank you for the beautiful piano music, the pianist was very friendly with us. The food was delicious tasty. Service is a little slow, but the waiters were kind and sometimes also welcome to come to dinner.
