Excellent gourmet experience

We visited for the experience and wasn't disappointed. We went with the Hungarian evolution menu and the wine menu for the same and wasn't disappointed.

Our first visit to Onyx Restaurant in Budapest. The booking had been made six weeks ahead. Professional staff. Excellent seating, quiet and pleasant background music, spotless table clothing and napkins, very fine cutlery, beautiful water&wine glassware from a well-known brand. The Professional and friendly sommelier guided us in our wine choices, thus helping us in discovering several fine wines and... More

Our concierge got us a reservation at Onyx -- a short walk from the Sofitel -- but the only table available was at eight. After reading the reviews here and elsewhere, we knew that we would turn into pumpkins before being able to finish the 3.5+ hour tasting menu. So before we went, we studied both the a la carte...

First time in a restaurant of this caliber, so it might be the uncultured rube in me talking, but the tasting menu (8 courses) took about 2.5 hours to get through. That's a long time for a meal.. The flavors were outstanding though, and the staff were very accommodating.

Absolutely impeccable service, amazingly tasty and creative dishes, knowledgable sommelier who didn't point at the most expensive wines -but rather worked with us to choose local wines to match our food choices. Beautiful quiet decor. Great central location. Not inexpensive..

I have been to a few Michelin starred restaurants as I travelled around the world, but to me, this experience was definitely the best one of all. In my opinion it exceeded the one star, in fact it was better than some of the two star ones Ive been to. We had the taster menu and the food was absolutely... More

This place is mandatory for everyone who loves superb cuisine and who is prepared to embark on a 3 to 4 hours culinary journey. We have been enjoying the Michelin star rated Le Grand Cerf, Comme Chez Soi, Hof Van Cleve and De Karmeliet in the past, and this place is definitely worth more than its single star ! The... More
