One of the most romantic place in Budapest. The views are stunning and one can spend the entire day in the restraint. Life music is played and one can order the finest food and best of the wine. A perfect place for man to go down on his knees and propose for marriage....

Brilliant and friendly service. Entertaining music during our excellent dinner. Hungarian food variation, huge selection of vines and from your table you have a spectacular view over this beautiful city Budapest. Recommend during the day visit, and one visit by evening.

The food was excellent and the service was perfect - attentive but not overbearing. Having eaten three courses, had drinks and had everything we wanted we were... More

if you want a great view over the city at night this is the place to go. the food is great and the service is also very good, not cheap by local standards but well worth the money for the location and food quality.

The Fisherman's Bastion is Budapest's version of a Disney fantasy. It was built when Budapest was in a frenzy to spruce up the city in 1896 for its millennium celebration. The fish market (present day Vizivaros) was actually below this "fortress" on the Danube and there must have been a fortification here of some kind previously which actually was guarded... More

Hiving stayed in the area for 4 nights, we pre-booked the restaurant for our last night. What a wonderful way to finish our lovely weekend break. Service and attention to detail was excellent, for this quality experience you would have to pay a lot more in any UK city. The quality, and presentation of the food was 5 star, staff... More
