Came here after a conference, there were about 30 of us in total. We were seated quickly and dinner orders were taken in good time. Portion sizes sufficient for a fancy restaurant and food was really good. Like that we could all order and be given separate bills. One of my friends is vegetarian and we were disappointed that the... More

Just finished eating here. Too fancy to be tasty. Been to a lot of countries and amazing restaurants but this is just too pricy for the quality that they offer. The appearance of the food gives you high expectations while the taste is actually not tasty. I ordered trot and i counted 8 different things combined in my plate that... More

Lovely meal here with my boyfriend. Staff were attentive and couldn't do enough to make it a pleasurable dinner. Beautiful view and dining room and delicious food. Expensive but was excellent quality (boyfriend said it was the best steak he's ever had)

Had here 3 courses dinner with wines. Service was ok but mistakes happened and things happened a bit slow. Food was good, portions big and tasting good. Piano music was nice but too loud it was more less impossible to have discussions at a big group

The setting is amazing looking over the Danube at the Castle district and chain bridge. Very welcoming staff who advised on food and drinks to go with them. The food was delicious and well presented. This is a mid to high range price wise as it cost £150 for us both including drinks. Well worth every penny

Went to this restaurant in November 2015 with my boyfriend. A meal on a boat on the Danube was a must whilst visiting Budapest! Upon entering the restaurant we were greeted politely and taken to our table which had excellent views of Budapest Parliament. The atmosphere in the restaurant was nice, with dim lighting and relaxing vibe. Staff were fairly... More

Description
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.
