Wonderful food with a wonderful view as well.

We stopped here because we had just finished the Fisherman's Bastion and they offered a special on a board outside. The price was reasonable and the view was great, so rather than walk on, we went in. The staff was friendly and helpful and the food was wonderful - we had 4 portions of the... read more

This "restaurant" can't be called a restaurant. The staff is extremely rude and pushy, and the "food" is supermarket sandwiches from a refrigerator. If you are ready to feel like a fish snagged on a hook, then the Fisherman's Bastion is aptly named.

In this restaurant you'll get excellent service, good food and drink. Of course, the astounding views of Pest across the Danube alone are worth the effort. Great sights along the way as you walk from the funicular, too.

This five star restaurant is not to be missed! It is at the top of the castle overlooking the beautiful Parliament Building. At night the view is spectacular with the lights on the buildings on the Pest side. The castle is on the Buda side! Our dinner was brought to the table with silver round covers and 3 waiters came...

The second best place to see Budapest from above after the Citadella.There are not so manyy options to drink or eat but it compensates with the views.

We visited this great restaurant to celebrate birthday and full moon and it was a real treat. The staff was very friendly and attentive. We made a reservation 3 days earlier and rally got one of the best tables with a fantastic view at Pest. The meal was wonderful and the sommellier suggested a perfect wine. The prices are very...

The food here was good, but the Danube view was even more astonishing, especially at night! Remember to ask the staffs about this. They really know how to do with their food, even from the simple thing like the fries. At a honest price also!

Part of the area under the walkway round Fisherman's Bastion has been glassed in and made into a restaurant. I think it is part of the Hilton Hotel which is nearby. It has huge arched glass windows looking out over Budapest so you get a wonderful view with your food. We were attracted by their very reasonable set lunch which... More

You may not be attracted to this restaurant at first sight while it is located at a tourist spot. Yet, the bar and restaurant are surprisingly good for an honest price.
