It was our first night in Budapest and as luck would have it, the concierge at our hotel, Le Meridien, when asked for a nearby restaurant serving Classic Hungarian cuisine suggested Tigris. The ambiance, service, food and wine were all excellent and it was a great start to our Eastern European adventure, which would take us up the Danube to... More

We ate here to celebrate my husband's birthday on a recent trip to Budapest, recommended by a friend. Our concierge had booked for us, however on arriving at the restaurant there was no trace of the booking. No worries, they fitted us in and we had an excellent table for two. The food was very good, when the main courses... More

On a tuesday evening at 6 pm, we entered Tigris without prior booking of a table. The rest. were almost empty but we were just allowed to dine if we promissed to be finished within 2 hours ... probably due to our clothing (jeans & shirts ... not looking rich). Since we ordered expensive food and wine, the 'time' issue... More

Tigris is a wine bar located near the central shopping and hotel district in the Pest area of Budapest. Reservations are suggested as the place had filled up by 8:30. There is an ample selection of Hungarian wines and the sommelier is more than able and happy to show them off. The steak was very good but two of us... More

I came on a business dinner with a big group. The atmosphere was somehow decent and elegant so we started to make our choice of meals we wanted to try. The foie grass in all kind of variations was a really great experience - with chocolate, traditional supported with sweet Tokai. Then we tried several different meat dishes and each... More

A little pricey but our last night in Budapest. Very international crowd as we were seated between a table of Russians and a table of Italians. Everything was wonderful. Would go back again when in Budapest.

I came here for an early dinner after sightseeing. I didn't have a reservation, but I would recommend making one because they were fully booked from 7pm on. The food was fantastic. Get the foie gras prepared four ways (including a foie gras Creme brûlée) as an appetizer. As a main, I had a Hungarian beef stew special. The beef... More

My wife and I came to the restaurant without any prior reservations. We had just gone from doing a whole round of sight seeing so I was just in my shorts and a shirt. I knew it was a nice place, but I had no idea it was so classy. We were pleasanlt surprised that that staff were very so... More

This was my last night in Hungary and I wanted to enjoy a good meal away from the tourist strip of cafes along the river. On a side street between the Chain Bridge and Parliament, the Tigris has great food, great service, and a warm atmosphere. I ordered a fois gras starter -- roasted, with hazelnut puree and coffee sauce.... More

we walked around Budapest and had done some sightseeing and needed a break - we were not sure if the restaurant was open because it was almost 1430hrs in the afternoon - but as we approach the entrance we say the waiter and so we ask if the restaurant is open to have lunch - lucky us. We were greeted... More
