Perfect view, perfect food, perfect service.

I've had the opportunity to eat at a lot of nice places all over Europe and the US. This tops the lot. Cannot recommend highly enough.

We went there for lunch & the food was fantastic. I had goulash & a lamb dish that was just wonderful. The service was very attentive & impeccable. So why a rating of just a one? We were planning on dining on their terrace with the breath taking views of Pest for weeks before we even landed in Europe. It... More

We sat on the terrace, under the stars, on a warm summer evening, listening to the live violin music playing, and enjoyed every magical moment. This restaurant is in the best position, overlooking the Danube, opposite the parliament building, on the top of the hill in Buda. It could have been a tourist trap restaurant but it was not! The...

My husband surprised me with a weekend to Budapest for my birthday. The highlight was a wonderful dinner at this restaurant. The weather was warm, so we could sit on the terrace and enjoy the amazing views. As the sun went down and the lights on the bridges and parliament building lit up, it was truly magical. The waiters and... More

Without doubt a phenomenal experience. Service, food, location and views just perfect. The staff could not have been more attentive or polite, with the right amount of formality and conversation. Knowledgeable sommelier great. Highly recommended. Breathtaking surroundings.

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.
