No attention to customers and horrible service. The table was never cleaned between courses. The waiter never added water to the glass and was not friendly at all

We went with a business group on February 11, 2015. Since we were with a group, we had menus. A starter with a selection of 3 different kind foie gras was delicious! One was foie gras with chocolate crunch, everyone liked it. Also the main course, beef Budapest, was better as an average restaurant in Budapest. The suggestions of food... More

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.

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
