We only stopped for drinks, so we didn't get to taste the food. The waitress was very helpful, she even gave me the requested lemon slices.
The view is beautiful, with a lot of ships, boats passing through and the inside had a nice charm of a ship.

It cannot be called restaurant. The food is absolutely awful. We had an extremly spiced fish soup, that had nothing to do with the real fish soup, I think they ve put all the spices they had. The second course, french fries and fish, was all drawn in oil, and the bread was asseasoned with hair. What else can you wish?
I definitely do not recommand eating here .

The restaurant is on a proper boat on the Danube wich makes the view amazing.
The design of the place is indeed original and sets a nice atmosphere, eventhough it's not very clean.
The food is average at most- we ordered fried Salau file with scotish potatoes and garlic dressing and Ciuleandra with cabbage salad.
The fish was deep fried (not mentioned by the server) and the potatoes were a bit boiled and also deep fried. Both lacked any kind of seasoning. The garlic dressing was very nice.
The Ciuleandra was a kind of porc snitzel with some overfried pieces of chicken on top and some melted cheese - nothing impressive.
We waited for some time for the order to be taken and the polenta was missing from the table eventhough we ordered it.
The service was basic and the check was told to us by the server - the amount being incorrect at first.
Overall - the view was amazing - the food not so much- maybe other dishes ar better.

If you travel to Orsova, this is the best place to eat fish. The restaurant it's very original, on the Danube, you can't miss it because is near the Iron Gates. And as you eat on a boat you must try the fish...it's absolutely delicious!!!

It's a very original place, an old ship transformed into a restaurant. Old style furniture, it's like traveling back in time.

Traditional Romanian fish food, very good 'saramura'. The prices are not high. Big parking lot in front.
