Ranked #72 of 1,601 restaurants in Budapest
Certificate of Excellence 2014
Price range: $14 - $61
Dining options: Breakfast/Brunch, Lunch, Dinner, Reservations, Late Night
Description: ZONA Budapest is clearly something completely different - haute cuisine with an unusual twist and an amazing view onto the Chain Bridge. Its latest success reflects the same: in October 2013 the international guide of Gault&Millau rated ZONA 17 points and 3 toques, so named as one of the TOP3 restaurants in Hungary. The menu is daily variable, but the quality and the surprise factor is standard. ZONA's chef is Krisztian Huszar (Chef Of The Year 2011) brings Eastern and Basque flavors into modern Hungarian tastes. The wines also receive a big emphasis in the restaurant, which gives real specialty to the venue. IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to construction works the whole street has been closed, and will remain so until the end of Summer, so ZONA can be only reached by walk, bicycle or taxi. We truly apologise for any inconveniences caused and hope that your experiences at our venue will make you forget about them.

Surely one of the best chefs in Hungary and Eastern Europe. The food is continuously excellent. Some efforts on the service and wines would provide an even more enjoyable experience.

overall impression is quite positive although as in the title- wobbly chairs destructed me from enjoying the meal. veal is perfect, the consomme is rather average.
