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.

We followed advice from one of our friends to come here and were impressed by the great food, smaller portions.,gourmet standards combined with a relaxed atmosphere. We were eating early because of a concert in the Basilica so arrived without booking but we could see that it was a good idea to book. There was a charming female wine waiter... More

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. The food is of a high quality, and very well presented by professional staff. If... 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.
