Amazing experience, and outstanding quality/price ratio as well. Service was super attentive. The most notable dish we tried was a very delicate saddle of rabbit with fruit compotes. We had a three course meal and portions were just right, we went out feeling satisfied but light at the same time. I liked especially their moderation in using salt and fats.... More

Our meals at Tigris were the best we had in Budapest. It was a short walk from our hotel, The Four Seasons, and had been recommended by our concierge. The wine was exceptional--who knew that Hungarian wines were so fine (these good ones don't make it to the state run liquor stores where I live in Ontario, Canada). The sommelier... More

We just had our first meal in Budapest at Tigris Restaurant. What a great experience. Our waiter, Martin, was extremely friendly and recommended several authentic, Hungarian dishes and suggested local wines with each course. The food was absolutely delicious and we tasted several wines new to us that we're amazing. Martin shared the history of the dishes and wines with... More

My wife and I stopped in by chance and without reservations. We were greeted warmly, offered a cozy table next to a window, and had superb service throughout the meal. We were offered Hungarian champagne to start; it was very good and very inexpensive. The manager stopped at our table to translate the menu and offer suggestions. My wife and... More

Celebrated a special birthday here. The food was excellent (the duck was some of the best I have ever had) and the service superb, compared to British prices great value for money too.

The restaurant was charming, the service excellent, the menu appealing. One member of our party requested his steak well done (which we later found was almost impossible to get during our travels). He sent it back asking it be cooked further. It still came back pink. When our waiter noticed he insisted on taking the item off our bill. That's... More

Great meal from start to finish. We had the whiskey marinated salmon and foie gras tasting plate! Amazing, the foie gras brûlée was beyond! Mains were the rose duck and the pork, both equally delicious and for dessert the traditional do is cake - a must! There were so many other tempting dishes it was hard to choose. We also... More

Six of us arrived at the restaurant to find our table was right next to a group of 14. Without saying a word to the staff picked up the table with everything on it and moved us to a quieter place. The funny thing is we made more noise than that other table by far. An example of outstanding service... More

We were here for a late lunch, and were blown away by the quality of the cooking. The duck breast and beef, in particular, were outstanding. Great wine selection, also. It was probably one of the more expensive lunches we've had, but it was memorable and one of the highlights of our visit to Budapest.
