We tried to book an evening meal here but it was fully booked so we went at lunch time! We were told it had just got Michelin star status! We were given a table and we asked about the wine but nothing was explained &we were not given any to try! We had 4 different staff throughout the meal, very... More

We booked a table via our hotel on the day however it was already very busy so we were squeezed into 6:00 - 7:45 for dinner. The food was excellent - we shared a starter and they were happy to give us tap water, as opposed to other restaurant that charges you. the price was much more affordable for a... More

The place looks like a pleasant bistro, nothing fancy but comforting. I've heard good things about it but never had the chance to try it. Well I must say it was a mistake not to go. We were a group of friends so had a chance to try a lot of the dishes. I was pleased with all of them,... More

very unique flavour combinations especially with the scallop appetizer dish. Perfectly cooked, fresh scallop paired with a sweet and fruity sauce. Light and airy. The duck main was expertly handled with a luscious sauce. Wine pairings were outstanding - couldn't be more impressed with the recommendations from our waiter. We started with a lighter red during the appetizer course and... More

My wife and I visited Borkonyha WineKitchen for lunch in early April and thoroughly enjoyed our meal there. My wife had the Thai soup (with shrimp, noodles, cilantro, and coconut milk), and I had an excellent dish of venison medallions (with plums, zucchini, and sweet potato puree). Recommendations for wine pairing from our server (Hungarian wines) were great. We’re considering... More

At first I was a bit scepctic looking at the menu - "What will I eat here...". The selection has a lot of meals which are not my taste. I decided to have a sweet potato (csicsoka) soup with scallops. It was just delicious - full of taste! After I went for the beef steak medium made - it was... More

Me and my girlfriend had our last dinner here during our holiday in Budapest, and we found it to be astounding in every aspect. As the last of our evening was coming up we figured we'll just splurge all our remaining money and we were looking into which restaurant we could go to. My girlfriend said she'd like some wine...

Why does earning a Michelin star have something to do with starving your guests? Great menu, well deserved star, over priced, impersonal service. Very limited menu and even at 8 pm when the restaurant was not full, they had run out of one of the mains... Not acceptable for a Michelin star restaurant. We won't be back so quickly.
