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 Krisztián Huszár (Chef Of The Year 2011) brings Eastern and Basque flavors into modern Hungarian tastes. The desserts represent extraordinary concept by Brigitta Balatoni, who was the youngest Pastry Chef Of The Year ever in 2012. The wines also receive a big emphasis in the restaurant, which gives real specialty to the venue.

We have had a lunch menu with my family which was really extraordinary. Friendly and elegant service, brilliant view to the Chain bridge and Pest side with the Danube. I can suggest to everyone who likes the fine food.

I discovered ZONA by coincidence after a stay at the nearby Lanchid Design Hotel alongside the Danube and close to the Chain Bridge. While entering the restaurant, I immediately sensed a different awesome out-of-time atmosphere. Tom Dixon isn't very far. Simply superb as interior design concept. Atmosphere: TOP. And then... A very inspiring menu allowing wonderful combinations. 4-5 starters, as... More

I have visited this "Zona" several times and I am extremely impressed by the the creativeness of the chef, by the quality of the food and by the fantastic price/value (P/V) ratio. What you are served in Zona is up to the standards of French "haute cuisine". The place is very well situated with a fantastic view on the Danube,... More

We had a Valentine lunch with my partner there and I have to admit it was't the first time we ate there. They always surprise us with something new, the only thing that repeats on their menu is the "Lecsó" (thank GOD! Try it!!!). In fact, try everything. You can easily eat through their 5-course menu, it is composed with... More

Great day menu. Leek soup with green celery and ginger - fascinating combination! Breaded beef cheeks were delicious and juicy. One word of caution - be careful about the service charge on the top of the bill.
