Lovely boat that had an old fashioned feel about it . Food was good & drinks were decent . The folk band played a good selection of songs . Only downside was our waitress for the evening never showed up after the first 10 minutes . Would do it again next time we visit

It was a 3 hours cruise with food. The food that they served were delicious and very Hungarian. We didn't know the dishes name until we went to a restaurant the next day. Surprisingly even though they were serving the buffet style, it tastes better than the restaurant that we went. The live violin music was quite irritating maybe I didn't like classical music.

We had a lovely evening on this dinner cruise on the Danube. It was good value for money and the food was nice, however as it was a buffet when they open it , it was like a bit of a free for all. They should ask you to go up on tables as that was a bit of a messy. Also I was hoping someone would tell us what the sites where , but they didn’t.
