The boat was fantastic and provided a truly unique dining experience. The Hungarian food was delicious and plentiful. The crew all polite and friendly. The 3piece Hungarian band played at tables beautifully. A wonderful evening and very good value.

Great staff and service, food was lovely and the views were excellent as the evening grew dark and all was lit up!! Truly worth it to see Budapest's River views by night and the 2 hours were a perfect amount of time! thank you

It was nice. Just hope they let people in earlier. We get to the church early and have to wait in the cold until half hour before.

Very beautiful setting. Such a lovely way to spend an hour. The organist was amazing

2 hours well spend on Dunabe ;) Dearly recommended
