I went to this restaurant with business partners without pre reviewing TA. The appetizer (goulash soup) and entree (budapest beef) were totally average, nothing special. It was my first experience with Hungary food and was not really special (I did go to another restaurant and soup was much better). The wine was quite expensive and again good but at 100... More

We came to Tigris with their new-year eve menu in the last evening of 2014. The service was quite decent and the personal was very lovely. We followed their wine recommendation of a bottle of white wine at a price of 45 euro and then a bottle of red wine for 115 euro. The recommendation was 2 bottles for 4... More

Great restaurant which we only found through the hotel we stayed at; smart restaurant with great staff. Food was lovely and the wine selection (mainly Hungarian naturally) is terrific. The place was full and lively - a great evening out and stroll across the Danube to the hotel.

Although Michelin rating supposedly, the 100 Euro Menu for New Years was horrible almost entirely. They tried to create fancy dishes but the taste was horrendous. Chocolate covered foie gras may sound nice but did not taste proper. The fish was adequate. The rump steak was so overcook it tasted like shoe leather. The service was very good...but I would...

I would defintely return to Tigris. A warm and gracious place on a quiet side street but easy to find. The food was delicious and plentiful. Wonderful service by a knowledgeable staff. Features Hungarian wines which are very good. Makes me wish I had ready access back home.

We were excited about having our new year's Eve dinner here. Expensive it was. 99 euros for amuse bouche and 4 courses and one glass sparkling wine. The food was fairly boring! What I thought would be seared fois gras was cold instead filled with chocolate. Main course was rump steak which was very tough and completely dried out. I... More

Surely the Michelin stars find here the right place. Wonderful service and great plates,especially the foie gras variations. Perfect the sweets and very good but expensive the Wines. A restaurant that in Italy easily cost around 100 euro, while here only around 40(3 plates +wine ).

This restaurant was recommended to me by a friend and I must say that it was definitely worth the visit. The meals were served in a very creative way - which, to be honest, sometimes had me wondering how to go about eating them. I had the duck. Taste-wise it was good, though nothing extraordinary, but I don't believe I've... More

A tremendous staff across the board from host, servers and sommelier. Very attentive and there to make a pleasurable dining experience. Most helpful in selections for dinner - though I thought the goulash soup was fairly tasty, it was not anything special. However every other course was incredible. Beyond that, as advertised, the wine is incredible and they help choose... More

recommended by our hotel. Setting, staff and wine stewart were perfect. The 4 course Pate was beyond perfect.....off the charts for us Pate lovers! Impressive wine stewart who went to lengths to allow us a better understanding of Hungarian wine regions.....he recommended a wine, that for us was great match. My wife was very content with her local pig dish,... More
