We went for an early Saturday night dinner and were dismayed by how few people were in the restaurant. The facility is very small and has a sort of musty old world charm. You can tell that the place has been in business for many years ... in this case 35, I think. The service was charming, very informal and... More

I've walked by Blue Danube more times than I can count without stopping in, so I decided finally it was time to give them a try. First of all, when you look around inside you can tell that it has a long history in the city. The decor is interesting, and you can just imagine the big parties and groups... More

Tried this restaurant back in January. I was in town visiting friends and the told me about this place. Having tried many Hungarian restaurants in Toronto and even in Hungary, I would say it is just ok. The schnitzel at $22 is priced too high for what you get. The goulash soup was not even close! Compared to Bar Europa... More

No wonder why they have been a Windsor landmark for over 40 years - Excellent, authentic Hungarian food with more American choices for the less adventurous. Our sampling - Goulash soup with very tender beef, slightly smoked sausage, al dente dumplings, cabbage rolls like Grandma, vegetarian pasta with incredibly fresh vegetables. Black Forest Torte and palachintas were to die for!... More

This is one of those under-appreciated Windsor gems. Nothing has changed in the Blue Danube in years, and that's how it should be. The cabbage rolls (with gravy, not tomato sauce), schnitzel and sausage were all very good, and there are many other Hungarian and Continental dishes worth trying. Service was friendly and efficient. More folks should support these local... More

This was like visiting Hungary. My wife is Hungarian and is accustomed to authentic, Hungarian home cooking. She said this experience was like going to her grandmothers for Sunday dinner. The food was the best Hungarian cuisine we have eaten anywhere. We go to Hungarian restaurants where ever we travel, none have impressed her as much as this restaurant has.... More

6 of us went for dinner last night, have been going to this restaurant for over 40 years and it hasn't changed inside one bit. We were surprised to see how quiet Ottawa street was, there wasn't very many people walking around and looks like many places closed up, it was sad to say the least. The menu has been... More
