A very good meal - and also, definately in the michelin-level. However, it was slightly pricy compared to other high-end restaurants in Budapest and the atmosphere was somewhat snobbish. Not so much from the personal, but from the other guests and it's not a typical 'I'll-drop-in-in-my-sneakers-and-shorts' kind of place. The food however was decent, but no more at the price... More

I had the pleasure of dining in Costes a few weeks ago. It was a real enchantment, like being in a fairy tale! The dishes were beautifully presented, wonderful combinations of flavours. Surprises from the amuse-bouche till the closing sweets. But the portions are very small. The waitress (as well as friends who had dined there some time before) said... More

The food at Costes lives up to expectation - interesting menu, great that you can choose items for the 4-7 courses. We had 5 courses which was perfect. And each plate of food not only looks amazing but tastes delicious. Complex dishes but not pretentious. The service was spot on too. Great evening!

Okay, do yourself a favor and indulge on dinner at Costes. Top-cuisine food, very creative and super-tasty, and the service is polite but keeps a familiar touch that makes you want to come back. The price is amazingly fair for what you get. Recommended in every way.

My partner and I had 4 night in Budapest, three of which were spent enjoying the quirky ruin pubs and great nightlife but we set one night aside for something a little more formal. I am lucky enough to have a job where I have dined at quite a few Michelin starred restaurants so I knew what to expect but... More

My wife and I had testing menus with wine pairing. My wife had Foie Gras, Pigeon, Beef, and Golden Berry dessert. I had Crayfish, Our Garden, Pike Perch, and Walk in the Forest dessert. The Foie Gras was not as good as at Tigris Étterem and Rézkakas Bistro. Crayfish although decent by itself was drowned in a huge amount of... More

Exceptionally good. This place has definitely earned its Michelin star. The pairing of the wines with each course, to say nothing of the presentation, the service, and of course the taste of each dish was quite frankly brilliant. Interestingly enough, I prepared to snap a photo of one of the dishes and the waiter came to turn my plate. I... More

Went for the 5 course tasting menu with food pairing. On top of that another 3 courses are served as a courtesy. The food is delicately presented and extremely tasteful, the wine served per dish perfecting the culinary experience. Staff are friendly and very attentive to your every move. Overall an amazing dinner experience with new suprising flavours. Super recommend... More
