Borkonyha has a very high standard of food. It's quite informal which is refreshing as it feel quite unpretentious. We enjoyed our food enormously. Even the pork was one of the best pork dishes we have tried. Desserts were also absolutely delicious.The staff are very friendly and helpful. If you really appreciate food this is a must visit whilst in... More

We have decided to try all the Michelin stars of Budapest. Costes was fantastic but for a price. Borkonyha serves incredibly good food in superb presentations at a very mild price, about under $50 wine included, a steal for a Michelin restaurant. We went with a friend, somelier in France, and he agreed that the wine choice was really great... More

My first word of advice, if you want to eat here – don’t… EAT ANYTHING BEFORE! Unlike most M.Star restaurants in the UK, the servings are very generous and not at all pretentious in style; look forward to good hearty vegetables, a generous starter, and a ‘moreish’ side of freshly baked bread to go with your introductory course. The duck... More

We ate here last night it was a true Michelin Star Experience. The food was truly excellent and the Service superb .The Desert was OMG. Quite Frankly we recently ate at a Michelin Star Restaurant in Paris and my main was ,more Expensive than the Total Meal for 2 including wine. A must if in Budapest.

Just got back from dinner. It's got one Michelin star, I think the only starred restaurant in Hungary. It deserves it. Here's what I ate: Started with guinea fowl with tarragon and mustard. The fowl was perfectly roasted, crispy skin and moist and tender, a small but not too small starter size. The tarragon and mustard were together as a... More

My partner took me to the Michelin starred winebar for lunch. What an experience. The patio was a perfect setting for our multiple course lunch. The Thai soup, the scallops, the bean salad... Divine... Oh and you must must allow your server to pair your dishes with the most suitable wine... Over a hundred to choose from. For the price... More

Set in buzzy central area. Essential to book; request outside if wanted. Good atmosphere. Interesting and tasty menu; friendly, attentive and knowledgeable staff. Duck foie gras was a standout starter. Excellent Hungarian wines. Try the Tokay - both dry and sweet. Good value for a Michelin star meal. Only flaw was warm tap water, though ice sorted it out.

The food was delicious and the service was excellent, albeit slow. Took about an hour to get the first course, but we were in no rush. Weren't able to sit outside, so be sure to specify that when you make a reservation. I had the ratatouille with sausage, which was basically a fancy version sausage and peppers. The price is... More
