Spoon is a boat moored on the Danube and was recommended to us as a good place to eat. It didn't disappoint. The food was really good - tasty and beautifully presented. There was a wide choice of dishes - international and Hungarian with a good wine list. Waiting staff very pleasant and helpful. A great evening, 'wining and dining'... More

The view was stunning but the food was poor, I had the risotto and it was all tinned and the buckwheat my friend had was hard an unpalatable.

The food served here is of a surprisingly high quality, given that it's in a real tourist trap type location. A huge amount of effort was put into the cooking and presentation of the duck that I had and the Mrs's pasta with slivers of steak in a tomato sauce was lovely. That said, check the menu before you show... More

We spent a great afternoon relaxing next to the waters edge. The food was a pleasant surprise, we planned on just having a light snack and ordered a starter each, given the quality it wasn't long before we ordered a main course. We had a long lazy afternoon in the sun watching the planes practice for the red bull air... More

Always great food, great wines, great service. Spectacular views as we ate and the service we had could not have been better. It is an expensive place to eat but we think you do get real value for money. It's a must do if you can afford it in Budapest.

I made the reservation of my table two days before via email. It was my birthday and I decided that Spoon was the right place where to celebrate it. Spoon is a big boat, nice interiors with a romantic atmosphere. There are inner rooms but I asked for a table on the deck outside. The view is great at the... More

I went there alone as I was on a business trip. They tried to sit me on the less fancy side and upon walking away they sat me on the more "upmarket side". View is great, as you are by the river but food and drink not so. I half drank a very blunt frozen margherita. Food was nice but... More

This place was recommended by our guide and well worth the visit. Delicious menu with good choices of food, wines and beers - fine dining prices. Great service with very friendly and efficient staff - although, we were a large group and should have asked in advance for individual receipts: it made for a very complicated end to the meal....

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.
