Booked the restaurant for 10 persons. Checked out the menu on the net before booking as we had to cater for all. We all chose 3 courses and were not disappointed by our choices. Excellent food and all really enjoyed the meal. The waiter was extremely polite and helpful. We will all return when possible.

Stayed in Newark for 2 nights and the Danube was recommended by our hosts. I'm so glad we went. The menu is based on foods from the countries that lie along the Danube River so included dishes that we don't normally see in British restaurants. I had the chicken paprikash (spelling?) and a lemon meringue dessert. Both were delicious. The... More

Service is fantastic and prices are very affordable. I'll definitely be eating... More

We had some very good, wholesome and interesting dishes from along the Danube. The wine list was very comprehensive and the owner Ramona was very welcoming.

I have been here twice now as my first visit was so good. The service is very friendly and efficient. I ordered the goats cheese starter followed by the salmon, and I was quite surprised at how very flavoursome all the food was, even down to the potatoes. I can recommend this restaurant very highly and will definitely be returning... More

In terms of food quality and service I have little to add to many of the other four and five star reviews here. I will note a few specifics that pushed it up to five stars for me. Firstly was the service. The staff were uniformly pleasant and polite. One of our party of five had a disability which caused... More

Arrived last night, Friday 24th march, for my booking at 7.30. Place was packed and no table for 4 available. Greeted by waiter and asked for my name. Started to usher us into the bar where one table was hastily pushed against one already there and we were told that this was our table. They had clearly missed my booking,... More
