Little heaven

From the moment we got in the restaurant we were really amazed. Starting from the temperature of a champagne/rose are just perfect. They deliver them with an ice filled trolley. Food was excellent, especially the bouillon, venison and dessert as well (we had the Hungarian tasting menu). I think... read more

I went here in April 2015 as my boyfriend is a massive foodie so we wanted to treat ourselves for a fancy meal We booked in advance, and didn't realise that they ask to be made aware of any allergies beforehand ( I have a nut allergy ) - this wasn't a problem, and they even arranged to make a...

We went there for lunch with prior reservation for a table. The restaurant isn't big but the decor is elegant. The waiters know their dishes very well and gave us good introduction. They are very always ready to help you when you are in need yet they are friendly and wouldn't make you feel nervous. You can check on their... More

We recently went on a trip along the Danube ending in Budapest. Our last night we went to Onyx. It most certainly was the best meal on our trip. Its Michelin Star is most deserved, and one wonders why not two. It is a charming, beautifully decorated, small place. Two tasting menus are available, we chose the Hungarian Evolution with... More

having read about onyx being a michelin star restaurant in a Budapest guide , we made our reservation and arrived here with a lot of curiosity and enthusiasm. we had coffee and the Hungarian sponge. we experienced so many different tastes in a bite at the same time. it was extraordinarily wonderful.

Onyx is one of our most favourite Michelin star restaurants - probably because of the Hungarian flavours: the renowned chef, Tamas Szell is making huge efforts to interpret well known Hungarian dishes into something new, still keeping traditions alive. It is of course a question of taste and mood, but we simply love it. Being a Hungarian, it is very... More

Elegant and sophisticated with excellent food. We ordered the Hungarian Evolution menu with the wine pairing. I just have one thing to say: It was simply exquisite! Go, eat and enjoy!

Went for lunch - recommended if you don't want to stretch for their dinner prices, but be prepared to pay more than an average lunch. This will however be worth it, at least it was for us. A really, really great restaurant, completely earning their recommendation in their Michelin guide - and then some. Impeccable service, fantastic food and great... More
