Super disappointed with Costes on many levels. First & foremost, ordering your meal is the MOST OBNOXIOUS & ANNOYING thing i've ever attempted at a restaurant! Let me explain: When ordering at Costes, you MUST order the same amount of plates as the person you're with. I was with 1 other person, and she settled on the smallest tasting menu,... More

Each dish is very innovative and a visual wonder where colors and shapes are in a perfect harmony. The wines accompanying the menu were very good too and very well presented by the sommelier who could transmit his passion for Hungarian wines. The staff offers this magic combination of being highly professional but also friendly and welcoming at the same... More

This is the best restaurant in Budapest and it deserves at least two stars. Sommelier very good, professional and wine paring excelent chose. Waiters very friendly, polite and professional all you expect from a Michelin restaurant. The food was just amazing, the flavor, the texture nad the aroma...fantastic. Congrats chef!

Myself and my husband visited Costes as a treat on our honeymoon in Budapest and this restaurant did not disappoint! The service from start to finish was impeccable; with welcoming and knowledgeable staff. The food was wonderful and beautifully cooked. I would recommend the tasting menu with wine pairing for the ultimate experience. Genuinely the best night of the trip.

Arriving the restaurant was a pleasant experience. All the staff stopped what they where doing and greeted our party. We decided to have the seven-course meal and it’s wine paring. This is nothing we regret. The staff was very tentative and made us feel very welcome. The meal it self and the wine was very high class and was presented... More

Costes is one of those Michelin starred restaurants where taste is secondary to presentation, which isn't to say we didn't enjoy our evening because we did, very much. The staff were charming and very efficient and every dish was quite literally a work of art, the crayfish with aspargus and lemon creme fraiche was so beautiful that it could be... More

My partner treated me to a meal here during a short break to Budapest to celebrate my 30th Birthday. WOW! What a fab dining experience, I've ate in several Michelin Star restaurants before but this one has surpassed them all! From the minute we walked it until the moment we left, the staff simply couldn't do enough for us -... More

Service and meal was great in a modern, clean and romantic restaurant. Every course was excellent as were the different wines recommended by the professional sommelier. Definitely the best restaurant I have ever been to. Wonderful experience. Thanks! :)))
