Nice restaurant, very friendly staff

We went here in a Saturday evening. It was busy so it's best to book. The foie gras is truly amazing - my husband ordered it, I ate a good deal of it too :-) I had a goats cheese and that was quite dry and uninteresting in comparison. Main courses were tasty, a little more sauce might have been... read more

We dined at Tigris on the recommendation of the concierge at our hotel, who knew how much we had enjoyed Onyx on a previous evening. I suppose I can understand why Onyx has its Michelin star (it has the accouterments and service flourishes down pat), but I can honestly say that we enjoyed Tigris at least as much, if not... More

This is a great place if you want tradition combined with best quality. Gulasch-soup was tasty, honey-baked goat cheese with salad was perfect, very nice seasonal asparagus with sauce hollandaise, the trout was a bit too fatty and served with a trace of beet root only, traditional meat dishes as main course were presented very nicely and had a modern...

Second time I have eaten here now and it was good to see that the food remains a very high standard. I drank a bit less this time too, so it did confirm to me that the bill really mounts up if you start adding wine – last time we had a bottle (which generally start at €50) this time... More

Recommended by hotel Concierge and not disappointed. The 'old world' decor provided a charming backgroud for a very enjoyable experience of an elegant Hungarian restaurant which could compete with the better restaurants world-wide. Greeted by the owner who set the standard for the excellent service from the head waiter (missed his name) and Sommelier Zoltan who really knows his wines.... More

I originally wanted to go to Zeller, the top rated Hungarian restaurant on TripAdvisor in Budapest. We asked our hotel concierge about his opinion on it and he didn't think he would recommend it to his guests and suggested to try Tigris instead. I'm glad we listened to him. The food at Tigris was awesome and the presentation also wonderful.... More

Recommended by our hotel concierge, this place was phenomenal. Don't skip the fois Gras sampler of 4 varieties, including coated in dark chocolate. Paired with Tokay sweet wine, it was sublime. Our waiter was marvelous, and no problem to split the bill.
