If you like this sort of dining why wouldn't you eat here? We had the fixed price lunch for the price of some pizzas in London. The food is good but highly wrought in the way the tyre people seem to like. The bread really was exceptional and I would go back for that alone, along with a Sorrel sorbet... More

After waiting in the doorway for two tables to be pushed together because they had got the booking wrong the staff were attentive. The menu was a little restricted but the somellier was very good. Expensive and not really worth it

Onyx is an excellent restaurant. Very fancy and everything you would expect from a Michelin Star restaurant. Service was outstanding with every little detail being taken care of. For example, they remember which coat is yours when they take it. They also knew which language to give each of us the menu in. When you go to the bathroom, you... More

The food was just delicious; tuna carpaccio followed by simply glorious venison and a very nice sorbet. The presentation of the food was equally good but the service was rather over the top - I am quite capable of picking up my napkin and certainly did not need a fresh one. The decor was, to say the least, rather strange... More

From the outside, the Art Deco style building is very inviting, and once inside, we felt very well looked after by attentive and knowledgeable staff. The tasting menu is interesting and suited us perfectly. The highlights were the marinated tuna with pineapple, yuzu and coconut; the turbot with beetroot and squid jus; and the roasted duck liver with pumpkin and... More

Following my visit to this restaurant on Thursday 2nd January 2014, may I express my deepest disappointment for the food we had (or I should say for the food we did not have…) and the way our dislike to the menu was handled by the staff. On the 2nd January 2014 I decided to have dinner to your restaurant as... More

We recently visited Onyx Restaurant in Budapest and had a nice meal at this Michelin starred restaurant in the city centre. Reservations were made three weeks in advance for a midweek seating. Restaurant was around 2/3 full during the evening we dined here. Staff were polite, accommodating and seasoned but not stuffy, making this a relaxing dining experience. We found... More

The food was very good and with a clear influence og hungarian food. A lot of grease, fois gras and bone marrow didn't really do it for me though. But if you like that this is a place to visit for sure. The service was excellent, nice ambience and of course a lot of effort has been put into the... More

I really cannot add too much over and above what other positive reviewers have said about this restaurant. We have dined in many international Michelin awarded restaurants and Onyx did not disappoint. I disagree with any review that suggests you leave hungry ... every course was the expected size for a degustation/tasting menu (if not slightly larger); as was the... More
