We couldn't get into Perriots (across the street) for dinner so we went to 21 Hungarian Kitchen. This was a great choice. We had typical Hungarian food which was well prepared. I believe it's open for lunch as well but we were there for dinner. The service was very friendly and they explained the different dishes available. I had the pork dish and it was very well done.

We went there with my husband with really high expectations to eat traditional Hungarian food. My husband´s lamb ribs were OK, but my chicken Paprika was just like... let´s say that the only thing paprika about it was the name. I was hoping a nice paprika flavor since it is THE spice in Hungary, but no. The manager was kind enough to not charge us for my dish (since I barely touched it) but it was a disappointment.

We were warmly welcomed and shown to our table on arrival. Unexpectedly, a glass of sparkling white wine was offered ‘on the house’, followed by a little jar of something (I didn’t catch what, but it was delicious) with some homemade bread.
They made no demur about my not wanting a starter, even offering a plate in case I wanted to share the foie gras my husband had ordered.
The main courses-duck for my husband and chicken paprikash for me were both really good.
Having been travelling most of the day, we didn’t stay to try desserts, but I’d certainly go back.
It wasn’t inexpensive, but we felt we were paying for quality and service.

We had a very pleasant dinner at 21. The duck breast was flavorful and tender - highly recommend. Hungarian chicken very tasty as well. Fish soup was somewhat bland, but otherwise ok. Our waiter, Sandor, was friendly and accommodating. Several tables of Viking passengers were seated in the outdoor patio, and all were pleased with their dinners.
