Nice experience, good food but I think it's better to choose 6 - Course Dinner cruise as, otherwise you, that choosed 3 course dinner(soup, main course and desert) will wait to get your soup until the one with 6 course dinner will receive their soup to come all together. It was ok for us to not include the drinks, there are some nice options to choose on your own. The piano battle is more a piano jazz battle with some interventions of a lady singer most în the last half an hour of the program. Prepare tips for the band! Beautiful views outside, I would choose the 3 hour tour in order to catch the night also, beautiful view of the lighted builduings.

We opted for the 3 course meal and unlimited bar at the Piano night. Food was excellent, drinks were really good quality and the music was good. View’s of the city were excellent particularly as the light fades and the city is lit up. Drinks were a bit on the slow side and the first one took 30 min to arrive, but other than that it was a really good evening and I would recommend.

Nice cruise on the river with good food and entertainment

This is a nice way to see the sights of Budapest from the river. It was well organised, the staff were very friendly and attentive. I was a little worried about the food having read the reviews but I need not have worried. It isn’t cordon bleu but is it of high quality and nicely presented. The piano battle is a bit cheesy but piano music as a back drop to the night cruise was perfect.
