Welcome at the Danube’s one-and-only gastroboat – Pannónia Boat
The exclusive gastro experience
Pannonia Gastroboat is a unique vintage restaurant ship, where you can experience the Hungarian culinary culture in an elegant setting. Cruising in the heart of Budapest and having a slow-food menu on board from all around the country is the perfect gourmet experience.
“Somewhere in the Danube’s dazzling lights a ship is sailing on the river. A ship which is different from the others in a tiny detail. A tiny detail which opens a new era in the world of Hungarian gastronomy.”
We stumbled across the Pannonia cruise almost by accident - but thank goodness we did. With only limited time in Budapest we wanted to do something special and this certainly fitted the bill. Not only is the vessel beautifully appointed - straight out of an...More
Absolutely 5 stars. The food and wine pairings were no less than excellent. The boat itself was well appointed. There were only 8 couples tables, so 16 persons seems to be max. Great service. If you want a lovely or romantic evening on the Danube,...More
We enjoyed an amazing dinner!! To start it is a very intimate. There is space for about 20 guests. You are greeted and treated with kit gloves. The boat ride carries up and down these Danube to see the beauty of the city at night-...More
We enjoyed the Pannonia Boat on our first night in Budapest. What a beautiful way to see the City and at night it is magnificent. The food and wine (and the information given about it) was interesting and delicious. The staff was professional and informative....More
The peak of gastronomy
The Pannónia Gastroboat is the only restaurant in Budapest, where you can taste whole Hungary – on board.
Its specialty lays in the ingredients by local farmers, the Hungarian wines, the local specialities and the most advanced kithcen technology. Our kitchen suits maximum 20 guests, where we create six-course dinners in cooperation with the memebers of the Rural Stylish Restaurants Club (“SVÉT”)
Gastronomy is different today than in the previous times. There are no cornerstone dishes on which you can bulid up a whole menu. If one wants to make something special, then he needs to get deep in the making process from the basic ingredients to the small details. That is the reason we use only Hungarian materials in Pannónia’s kitchen, only local spices, wines, confectionaries are presented. The vendors of “SVÉT” provide something new every month: it can be a special pepper, a jam, or a handmade bob-bon. These then stay with us, and that’s the way our selection widens.
The Pannónia Gastroboat is a gastro-travel. Along with thed ishes from a selected region of Hungary also the local wines are presented at the table, matching desserts are inked in the actual menu. That way the rural restaurants’ local specialities move on board of a floating island, where via a unique experiance we can taste the widest selection of th ereal Hungarian cuisine – this way introducing Hungary’s actual gastronomy.

Pannonia Boat – More than just cruising
Shipping on the Danube flourished from the late 19th century. At that time, in the absence of roads and railway networks the river was the quickest route, which was mainly used for the transportation of goods.
However, with the invention of steamships transportation became faster, so many people chose this way to travel. But sailing on the Danube was not ideal only from the point of view of traffic: it is such an experience which captures the people’s heart in any ages.
The Pannonia ship combines the elegance of the last century with modern-day expectations, therefore let it be any event or programme, the proper atmosphere is guaranteed. Not to mention the possibility of taking a photo of the Parliament from the Danube. Believe me, this view is alone worth it!
The experience is complete when looking up from your plate you find yourself fully enchanted by the lights dancing on the Danube.
