I ate one night in the Araz whilst staying at the Zara hotel its connected to. Food was lovely, modern european dishes done in a slightly minimalistic style (but the portion sizes were fine). Service was good too. Definitely reccomend if you're either staying at the Zara or nearby.

We unfortunately only visited the hotel restaurant on our last night and had the one meal. The service was excellent the food was some of the best we had. The menu is a combination of some French and Hungarian and you can mix and match. Everything was reasonably priced and we had a very good evening. Thanks to all for... More

First of all let me clear things out. The food is not the issue in this restaurant! But the service is very terrible in regard the image it wants to sell to you. But back to the food. Everythong looked loke an artwork and the quality was awesome. Just lower your expectations in service

We booked the Hungarian food and folklore evening (on Fridays) and we are so glad we did! The hotel that Araz is located in is beautiful. The buffet dinner was really excellent, which isn't a word I would usually use when writing about buffets :) The service was great. 3 glasses of wine were included with the meal and the... More

I was in this restaurant on the 25th of March with my sons. I tried several hungarian dishes and wines (also from hungary), and listened to the hungarian music band on the other side of the restaurant. The atmosphere and the kitchen also were brilliant!

I just wanna say thank you for everything. We spent 3 nights in the hotel and we went twice for dinner at Araz, all i can say both evening was exeptional. Friendly waiters, reasonable prices, beautifuly presented meals. The strawberry cake was the best dessert i ate in the last few months.

Araz lemonade was delicious and the star dish was the sirloin with spinach and potato souffle. Service is attentive and smiling. It is more expensive than the rest of the neighborhood but sometimes you pay for quality.

Perhaps we just went on the wrong night. There were no offers on, no live music and at half 8 there were only three tables filled (including us). Having said that, the food was good, the wine was good (and cheap) and the service was good - if a little hurried. (though this was similar in other places too) We... More
