Margareta Terrace is the uppermost terrace of the Restaurant with gorgeous panorama. We offer hot drinks in winter time and ice-cold refreshers during the summer heat, while the Danube Terrace, - which is in line with the Danube -, we offer hot and cold dishes from spring to autumn. An excellent venue with wonderful panorama of Budapest and intimate live music provides an unforgettable experience for our guests.The gastronomic style of The Halaszbastya Restaurant: innovative kitchen. We regard it as a challenge to participate in revive the most beautiful tradition of the Hungarian kitchen, and familiarize our typical flavours with our visitors.

I was taken here for a surprise birthday meal by my husband while we were in Budapest. The place at first sight was beautiful. We were shown to our table which had such a beautiful view over the Danube. The staff were so attentive, but not too much- the perfect amount. We were told about the specials and the local... More

I took my wife here for her 30th Birthday and quite frankly we both agree we have never had a better meal if you take everything into account. Food, service, location, ambience all absolutely 1st class, if you come to Budapest you must try getting a table here, you will not be disappointed.

The restaurant was not so crowded in the afternoon. The day view might not be as spectacular as the night one, but it's still wonderful. The food was above average and the service was impeccable.

We ate on the terrace or the restaurant, which is actually on top of the wall of the "Fisherman's Bastion" overlooking the Danube. Not only was the view jaw-droppingly beautiful as night fell and lights of the city came on, but the food and service were superb. One of the best meals we have ever had in one of the... More

An amazing restaurant with splendid food, attentive service, and an unforgettable view of the city of Pest and its bank. I must also mention, that the big attention to detail and formidable waiters was a great part of the experience. A little expensive, but something you wont regret!

I had booked a table on Danube terrace, but terrace was not open (because there had been a storm couple of days ago and they thought it was too cold to eat outside - though it felt warm enough to me). That was really disappointing as I booked this restaurant mainly because the view. And then we did not even... More

The restaurant is perched high up on Buda overlooking Pest and at night the illuminations are beautiful. Marble floors, Grand ceilings, chandeliers and turrets are all features of the restaurant. Live music too. The food was superb as was the service.

Went to celebrate a birthday with my wife and were treated like royalty. The setting is jaw droppingly beatiful, the interior spectacular and the food was delicious. The staff were helpful, efficient and friendly. An absolute delight!

We echo the comments on here - had a lovely evening in a beautiful setting with great music adding to the ambiance. A couple of minor negatives were the continual ringing of mobile phones to the waiters, presumably relaying dinner orders - this did detract a little from the music. Also thought the cellists attempt to sell us a CD... More

Staying in District I / Buda

Neighborhood Profile
District I / Buda
The historical center to a city with a multifarious and intricate past, Buda has some of the most outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube. Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.
