Went here wearing hoodies and hats, should've dressed up more but wasn't made to feel alienated. Staff were polite, wine was incredible, food was delicious. Not as expensive as first thought - 3 courses & wine worked out to be about £40 for 2 people. Highly recommended!

Orginally we wanted the lunchmenu, but since the lunch "closed" in 30 minutes we were offered the dinner-menu.. When we asked for recommendations, the waiter always recommended the most expensive on the menu... the food was okay, but nothing special. Dont go in.

Nice food, not too expensive. Nice atmosphere, even if it is not typical hungarian...but linked to international hotel guests. Even if you can choose some nice Hungarian speciality. Service, enough professional, not bad...a little bit cold. Good wine selection for different price needs.

We decided to book Christmas away this year, somewhere a bit interesting, and settled on 3 days in Budapest. We stayed at the Continental Hotel Zara which was really great, can't fault the hotel itself at all. 4 months before our trip I contacted the hotel restaurant to book the Christmas Eve Gala Dinner, as well as Christmas Day lunch....

Neighborhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
