Lovely but expensive

Had an amazing evening meal here but be careful if not familiar with the exchange rate! I felt a bit pressured into buying wine there and ended up with a £120 bottle of white! My own fault but there we go. Would highly recommend but it is expensive, especially the drinks!

Went here for a birthday lunch. One of the best meals we have had anywhere in the world. Perfect cooking and service in a calm restaurant. Excellent staff and very knowledgeable sommelier. Cannot recommend it highly enough. It was a real pleasure to dine there.

I visited the restaurant in the Autumn of 2014 for a 3-course lunch menu and wasn't disappointed in any way. We were well recieved and guided to our table where the well spoken english speaking waiter guided us through the daily menu - where we selected 3-courses incl. wine. The wine was the presented by the somelier at the table... More

We had our first dinner as a married couple her and everything was perfect!! We had the tasting meny with 8 courses and were very pleased. It is the best dinner I've ever had, they clearly know what they are doing. I usually don't like liver, but the dish with the liver was very good here. If you want an... More

It's quite expensive restaurant for Budapest but with excellent kitchen and services. Besides the price there no negative points to mentioned. And honestly the price is far for dishes, services and general atmosphere. Thanks for a great evening!

My wife and I enjoyed an excellent three course dinner at Onyx. Based on the fact that the restaurant has a Michelin star, a high ranking on Tripadvisor and an expansive menu compared to most restaurants in Budapest; our expectations were quite high. Basically I expect a rare dining experience with excellent ingredients, tastes and the small extra touches. Onyx... More

We had a 5 course Easter tasting menu. The quality of food was outstanding. I would not be surprised if Onyx gets a second Michelin soon. The stand out dishes were the amuse bouche and for my other half, the lamb. The restaurant has a formal set up however, it is incredible value for money. If you enjoy fine dining... More

We ate here on our final night. Having emailed to say it was our anniversary, we were taken a lovely table in the rear dining room (and my wife was given one of the giant throne chairs). Decor is very OTT but in a good way. There are a number of trolleys which arrive at various stages - pre-dinner drinks... More

At just £20 for a three course lunch, we couldn't refuse, could we. And we weren't disappointed. The food was beautifully prepared and served. And, of course, utterly delicious. A unique balance of subtle and more complex flavours. A highlight was the "pine" cream with the desert. The Hungarian wines that were recommended with each course were perfect. And the... More

Had a fantastic experience here on the full tasting menu with paired wines. The service was formal but attentive, the bread trolley is like nothing you have ever seen! Each course was skilfully done and the wines had been really well matched to enhance the food. The tasting menu with wines takes nearly 4 hours to get through but this... More
