All I can say is don't eat anything that day because the portions are huge . You never come away feeling Hungary . The choice is brilliant . And everything... More

Although we have been frequent visitors to Edern, we have missed out on this before. Four of us went on a winter Friday eve, and were very pleasantly surprised with the quality of both food and service. No need to book, a menu from which we had difficulty choosing, and very good quality food. We shall return.

The ship has got to be the best eating place in the area. A wide range of cuisine excellently prepared and presented.

Dinner tonight with 4 friends, I ordered the special of Salmon en crute, what a disappointment, a sliver of salmon & spinach about 1/2 inch thick in soggy pastry. Totally unseasoned & tasteless, probably from Brakes Bros or Iceland @ £14.95 vastly overpriced for such a lousy offering. We ordered two starters to share, normally a generous portion of tempora...
