This is a lovely restaurant located on the ship. The atmosphere is not too formal. The food is excellent as well as the service. Great cocktails and amazing view of the city at night. Highly recommended for romantic dinner.

Popped in to Spoon for a quick drink whilst out for a walk with my husband. Staff were very friendly, and it was a lovely spot to sit and enjoy a drink whilst looking out over the Danube.

Foods are great but quite expensive. Enjoy a dinner with castle view. But please remember to have reservation instead of walk-in if you want to have the window tables facing the castle.

It was the second time that I came here fro dinner. We were quite a big group of people and that's why the we were located in an area not that well decorated. The food was once more exceptional and tasted really well.

Many trip advisor reviews said this place is not great. Food ordinary and the rescued below that. I should have listened to the reviews. Food was truly very basic and the service, well, indifferent. There are a million better places in Budapest. Pls avoid

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.
