I was recently in Budapest and after a a few long days of sightseeing my partner and I decided to just take it easy and do a Danube river cruise. We bought a ticket from a street vendor for a cruise left at 7 o'clock at night and serves a buffet dinner on board.
Let me tell you, seeing the city at night from the river during the wintertime is absolutely beautiful. The food was very good too, with plenty of different things to choose from. We got to taste stuffed cabbage, chicken paprika and greaves cream (a cream made of tiny bits of bacon), which are traditional Hungarian foods, they are definitely heavy, but they are delicious! If you don't eat meat, don't let that stop you from going, because they have a bunch of veggie dishes as well.
And did I mention they have live entertainment on board? There where three musicians playing gypsy music, which was also very interesting, as I'd never heard it before.
I say do the dinner cruise on the Danube if you're ever in Budapest, totally worth it for the sites, the food and the music. The staff is also super friendly and helpful!
