Ranked #64 of 1,637 restaurants in Budapest
Certificate of Excellence 2014
Price range: $13 - $60
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.

I went here with my husband and our friend during our vacation. They ordered the set menu and I ordered an starter and a main, plus we all had dessert. The amberjack fish with watermelon soup was so creative and unique. Everything was INCREDIBLY delicious!! Surprisingly, this was actually our 3rd choice because we tried to get into two different...

Elite food, very attentive staff, and great wine pairings. I made an account just to share how much I enjoyed my experience at Zona. It was their last night before a break due to construction, yet they squeezed us in last minute. We enjoyed all six courses and each had at least one individual component that really completed the dish.... More

We came here late at night strolling back to the hotel and decided to have a glass of wine. The atmosphere in Zona is great, the personnel attentive and the wine selection superb. Right now the promenade in front of Zona is being renovated, but once that's done it should become even more attractive to go there. It is hip... More

Featured in the Wallpaper guidebook and recommended by our hotel staff, ZONA is situated in an ordinary looking building on the riverside road of the River Danube on the Buda side of the city. The interior space is double height contemporary design with a trendy feel to it. Sit up front near the bar to enjoy the best ambience. The... More

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.

I have the opportunity to visit them again and again. And I was pleased with the service and highly appreciated the quality of the food (all the times)! The interior is still not my favourite (but still ok, just I have a different taste) but when I am inside I am always pleased. Good selection of wines, with really helpfull... More
