Amazing View on the Danube in a very nice location. Good food and plating, a little bit much expensive for the city average.

I was here some time ago and returned here hping for an excellent meal again. They clearly lost their level of service and friendliness. The waiter was pushing us to pay in cash with a handwritten note.. Also the quality of food is incomparable to what it used to be.. Still a nice place though for a drink in their... More

Went to Spoon for my wife's birthday evening. Dress up or smart casual it doesn't matter. View was wonderful overlooking the lights of Buda and the bridges. We were on the open air deck which was magical on a warm evening. Food was excellent with the young chef giving some very imaginative twists. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive.... More

Just some choices and a terrible service. Wrong dish served. The wine was hot and changed by the servent and after that answer "was the same price...". Not a good experience for the last night at Budapest. Only the view, got a positive consideration.

Great quality and presentation of dishes, nice service and interesting place. I recommend this place, especially during evenings and night when you can enjoy Budapest castle view.

We arrived at Spoon and you are instantly drawn into the beautiful setting. We had asked for a table overlooking the river which they had arranged for us, which was beautiful particularly when the sun set. However unfortunately this was the extent of our enjoyment. As soon as we arrived the waitress asked us what we wanted to drink, despite... More

Enjoyed a nice dinner at this restaurant while on holiday in Budapest, with my family. The food was good, and the view of Buda Palace, the Danube and the Chain Bridge particularly spectacular at night! The servers were attentive, humorous and very service-oriented. The dishes were well-presented, enough for one person, and well worth it. Eating on the upper deck... More

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.
