Classy restaurant - worth the premium prices

Decided to book a table here for our last night in Budapest. We just managed to secure a table - it would certainly be advisable to book early, as there appeared to be a lot of corporate diners in evidence - and was not disappointed.

We chose this restaurant at random as it was close to the hotel but it was def a good find. Its a traditional setting with old world service . We had the garlic soup which was good but a little earthy. sea bass was delicious and hot. The wine was very expensive but this is a part of their value... More

We found this place by chance and by luck they had space for us. The awards and commendations on the door give a clue, but this is a more up-market place and this comes over in the service. We were well greeted and served throughout the meal, with help for English, wine and other such support. All of the dishes... More

I visited this place on recommendation of my friend and I can say that it was fantastic experience. Even tough it was not crowded we came because I heard all good things about this place. Food and service, five stars. I felt really special by the way staff treated us and felt five star gastronomic experience.

Food was absolutely delicious, foie gras best ever with unexpected combinations but for romantic dinner it was too noisy. Staff was professional and helpfull with good manners. Reservation needed.

The restaurant is located close to the pedestrian zone in a quiet street. The decor is traditional "old Europe". The staff is very helpful recommending and explaining dishes. The restaurant has a huge selection of wines and the sommelier really knows his Hungarian (and other) ones. People who would like traditional Hungarian dishes will not be disappointed. I cannot imagine... More

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
