What an absolutely stunning experience! The Onyx is a one Michelin Star restaurtant, and it certainly derserves this star! Had it been placed in New York or Paris, it would probably have had at least one more star! The entire experience was amazing! From the lovely snacks that came with the cocktails we started out with... We had a large... More

High quality restaurant with excellent service, They create a very elegant environment, I and went to the effort to bring a jacket for dinner. This was not necessary as a number of the patrons were in business casual. The food was very worth it; this quality would be at least 50% more in Paris or Los Angeles. Service is old... More

Although the price is high for a restaurant in Budapest (i never paid that much in 10 years), the food is just perfect and tasty. I tried the veal carpaccio and the pork, both absolutely wonderful. The wine and tokaj were ones of the best ever tasted. The service was also perfect, not pushing but always present just when we... More

My boyfriend took me to Onyx as a surprise during our 5-day trip to Budapest, and I was honestly blown away. I had never seen food presented in such a beautiful and creative way, and the flavors were almost overwhelming. We had a 3-course lunch, paired with some excellent wine and champagne. The service was first-class and considering the quality... More

I asked for a vegetarian menu as I wanted to eat lightly but also test the skills of the chef, as vegetarians don't always get the same level of detail. This meal was superb from start to finish. Each detail was rendered to a level equivalent or better than my partner's regular menu. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone... More

Me and my wife try the Onyx lunch buffet 31.7.2014. The luch was a bit disappointment, especially the main foods (venison and trout). The venison tasted a bit liver and the trout was like a frozen fish. The dessert was maybe the best ever! The lunch was a bit pricy. The atmosphere of the restaurant was beautiful.

We reserved a table after reading the great reviews at TripAdvisor & the fact this restaurant received a Michelin star. Since the prices are extremely high, especially for Hungary, we came for the lunch menu. The place is very elegant & the service makes a professional impression at first look. Boy, what a wrong impression. For starters We ordered a... More

We were recommended this restaurant a few months ago. Sometimes Michelin Star restaurants can be a bit stuffy. This was not. The food and wine were fantastic. The staff friendly and helpful and it was amazing value for money. If you are visiting Budapest this is well worth a visit. Compared to other Budapest restaurants it is a bit expensive... More
