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.

We enjoyed the ambience of this boat restaurant, also enjoyed good service and a quality range of food. The wine list was comprehensive too. We were intrigued with the goat cheese ice cream on the salad.

The view from the boat is excellent, especially in the evening so this place is usually full with tourists. Locals rarely visit it, mainly for corporate parties. The quality of the meals is uneven at best: the mains are really good, the starters are less than average and the desserts are simply bad. The service is the usual Hungarian touristy... More

Good views, really good views, but really the service is just terrible. If you order a Caesar salad, they will bring up a giant cabbage with the sauce and the cheese on it. The staff won't even cut the cabbage. Then Main course, our seats were right next to the kitchen, so we could see what was going on. The... More

Location is, like you would expect, superb, interior styling is ok, food is fine, but after the past year gastro revolution in Budapest not something you wouldn't get anywhere else.

We went with a party of 8 and were shown to a nice table on the second deck with a terrific view over the Danube and the castle on the other bank. Overall the food was good and moderately priced. The only downside was the very slow service. It's true that we really enjoyed our conversations with new friends, but... More

This is an interesting floating restaurant - the decor is stuck in the 80ies but the food is more than excellent
