“Delicious, relaxed, wonderful”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

Danube was great last year, and it is wonderful still. Dinner started with dollop of wonderful tapenade to spread on slices of yummy dense bread. We had an appetizer of excellent feta cheese and green olives, followed by a very nice mixed salad. I had the Wienerschnitzel with a near-perfect cold potato salad. The Malbec we ordered was very good indeed, and reasonably priced. If you are spending any time in or near Placencia or Seine Bight, you should definitely plan to have dinner at Danube!

“Past it's prime”
Reviewed March 12, 2012

I went on a Monday evening and was the only person there. I expected more given other TripAdvisor ratings. I ordered the goulash and spaetzel...nothing special. The "three balls" dessert was the memorable part...three different flavors of ice cream with a variety of toppings. The business is for sale...I can understand why. Too bad.

We are sorry if you were not impressed, however we can assure you that customer service as well as the quality of our food and venue have highest priority for us, regardless if we are selling the property or not. The fact that at the time of your visit you were the only guest should not have affected your dinner and is influenced by how many tourists are around. We do have slow nights and we do have busy nights and business is very random which most businesses on the peninsula experience.
Kind Regards Herbert Kollmann

“Authentic and very nice, personal service”
Reviewed March 7, 2012

Came there with two friends and we were very warmly received. Everyone of us was more than satisfied with his/her meal choice, the Spätzle were absolutely tasty and the wine was a good recommendation. The absolute highlight however was the desert: Salzburger Nockerln, the real thing, just the way you would get them in Austria, and one helping easily feeds three people. To die for! Will be back.

“Not impressed”
Reviewed March 6, 2012

We tried the weiner schnitzel with fries at the Danube restaurant. The schnitzel was bland, and tasted like it had been refried. It just didn't seem freshly made. The fries were ok, but nothing great for the price of the meal. The only decent thing was the bottle of wine we got.

The meal was absolutely out of this world- worthy to go up against any 5 star restaurant in the world!! From wine selection to dessert everything including the friendly and interesting owners was superb.
