Updated Mar 2022.
hello, I would like to book a dinner for 2 at the end of October. if I am a vegetarian does your menu has the options? the 3 course and the 4 course both? or just one of them?
the starter options are not vegetarian, but if you eat seafood you can find meat-free options (scallops or shrimps). There is a vegetarian soup all year round and the Mushroom risotto for the main course. The desserts are vegetarians as well.
Hope we can welcome you on board!
I would like to invite my girlfriend in April and would like to know if there is an option for a vegan menu.
Thanks for your reply
My husband and I are contemplating your cruise for 31st Dec 2019, New Year’s Eve. We are muslims and was wondering if you cater to halal food.
there is available Halal menu on the Candlelit Budapest Dinner River Cruise as follows:
Starter: Fresh mixed salad
Soup: Pumpkin Cream Soup with toasted Pine nuts and Basil oil with Ruccola
Main course: Roasted Red Tuna Steak served with Caper butter, cold Red Onion Puree and Fresh Mixed Salad
Dessert: ”Sweet Dream” Chocolate Cake with Strawberry Sauce
As most of these options are available on the boat, please let the waiter / waitress know that you wish to order Halal food on the dinner cruise (although Fresh mixed salad is not indicated in the menu, it will be prepared as a starter option for you).
Enjoy your time in Hungary.
I want to check a vegetarian option in the ala Carte . Would you be able to offer grilled vegetables and or a vegetable patty with buns as a burger. My dada has limited options with food.
I am looking to book a cruise for my family between 12-15 May. Which date will be available. We are a group of 6 people.
the A La Carte Menu contains Vegetarian options (indicated by (V) in the menu, but please note that it is a set menu.
There is availability for this program for your group for the requested days:
just wanted to check if these cruises are still available, hoping to book for 2 on Candlelit Budapest Dinner on A La Carte Cruise on the
8th april ?
of course, the a la carte cruise can be booked via the Inquiry form on the following page: /budapest-candlelit-dinner-cruise-a-la-carte-dinner
I will be staying at the Aquincum Hootel in May and was wondering how close the docks are to my hotel. How accessible are the docks from this hotel by public transport too?
most of the docks are located between the Chain Bridge and the Elizabeth Bridge on the Pest side. It is approx. 35-40 minutes by public transport from your hotel, so we would recommend to come by taxi (only approx. 20 minutes).
Is there music and or show with the ala carte dinner?
thank you for your comment.
Yes, there is a mellow piano background music on the A la Carte Dinner Cruise which is ideal for romantic dinners.
I hope I could be of help.
Hi does the €62 include the 4 course meal from the a la carte menu and a welcome drink?

Enjoy this fantastic A la Carte Dinner Cruise in Budapest.
I wanted to check if there is a possibility to get vegetarian dishes with no meat, no fish and no egg apart from what is given in the menu? as there are only 1 soup n 1 main course for vegetarians.
It is our wedding anniversary so wanted it to be special.
this is for 20th July 2017 for 2 persons for ‘pay as you order’.
thank you for your email.
I am afraid, the menu is set for this program.
Should you be interested in another dinner cruise (with bar piano music or folk show) with special vegetarian option, please see:
I hope I could be of help.

Hi, just wanted to check if these cruises are still available, hoping to book one for 24 December. The last message here is from Jan 2015 so I am not sure the trips are still going.
the A La Carte Cruise, unfortunately, won’t run on Dec 24.
Instead, please let me recommend you other Christmas Eve Cruises: /budapest-river-cruise-on-christmas-eve
Have a nice time in Budapest and enjoy the Budapest River Cruise!
Hello I am thinking of booking this cruise. Is the “hotel expo congress” near to where the boat docks ?!?
thank you for your inquiry.
Dock: the cruise leaves from and arrives at Vigado Square, Dock 7, which is located in the city center of the Pest side of Budapest (District V).
It is not nearby from your accommodation, so we suggest using a taxi or shuttle service.

Have a wonderful time in Budapest, and hope we can welcome you on board on the Ala Carte Dinner Cruise!
I am writing to enquire if you have availability for 2 people on the candlelit dinner cruise on the 4th,5th or 6th December
yes, there are, but the available seats can be changing any second, as the candle lit cruise booking is continuous, and if smaller or bigger groups come to the cruise, the 80 seats are quickly gone. Please send an inquiry by filling out the form, and we will get back to you via email.
I am writing to enquire if you have availability for 2 people on the A la carte dinner cruise for Friday September the 25th 2015.
Dear Mido, unfortunately the cruise is already booked up for September 25th on the a la carte cruise (we reply faster to emails than to comments, I am sorry for the delay). Would you like to choose another date perhaps or another program? Please check our full list of cruises in the timetable of Budapest cruises: /budapest-cruise-calendar
Please would you let me know if I can book the 4 course a la carte meal on river cruise in January 10th to 16th 2016 .thank you

I did receive the reply e-mail to my inquiry. How long between inquiry and time I receive confirmation of space as well as payment link?
I made a booking for 8th of July 2014 at 7.45pm. I got an email confirmation but how do I pay? Do you send me payment form needed?
Dear Kimmo, thank you for your inquiry. As for the a la carte dinner cruise in Budapest, in each case we are sending the payment link personally via email (supposing there are available seats left on the boat), as we need to check the complete calendar receiving instant reservations from all buying channels at the same time, in real time. This way we can avoid double or triple bookings. We have sent you the reply email regarding your July cruise inquiry.
