My boyfriend and I were originally going to go to Spoons cafe, but decided it was too expensive, so went here. We initially thought we were skimping due to it being so much cheaper...but it was absolutely fantastic. Friendly staff, clean tables, fantastic food for a good price, and an absolutely breathtaking view. I'd highly recommend this to anyone visiting... More

I was there with a big group and they served the food very fast and the starter and main course was ok but the desert was not good. This was a group menu so we could not choose ourselves. The service was very unpersonal and very stressed. They startet taking empty plates as soon as the first person finished their... More

Amazing experience! The location is magic. The wood furniture, the Danube under your feet, the city lights out of the nice windows, the view on Chain Bridge and the Royal Palace from your table. We choose Columbus twice because of the magic, but also the food was perfect!!! I warmly suggest: Appetizers Selection of Hungarian Ham, Goulash, Classic Pancake (lovely!the... More

Very cosy in the pub. We had life music on Saturday evening. The food was good and not too expensive.

We decided to try out Columbus for an evening dinner on the Danube and we were not disappointed , The food was great and also the service was excellent too. You get fantastic views of Buda Castle and Fisherman's Bastion lit up at night . Highly recommended.

Booked this Restaurant Boat due to its trip advisor reviews but before we went I wasnt expecting the world. How wrong I could be the food was fantastic. Really good in fact. View was great as expected and the live music was good. Cocktails were also very good. Would come back. Tip : check out their huge black pepper grinder!!!

Party of eleven and we chose from an a la carte menu. The chicken noodle soup was poor, and they gave my kids rice instead of chips. But the goulash was spot on and the pork was exquisite. No-one complained and all had good reports. Service was on point and of course, the view over the Danube was "lookin' mighty... More
