Our shop is located in the heart of the Danube in a corner (District V, Beer House and Molnar street and area) is located adjacent pedestrian street. Intimate restaurant on two levels in the atmosphere of the last century, the center of the ancient atmosphere. The restaurant is located in a small gallery of 8 people business - dinners, meetings, interviews can be a great scene. Masterpieces was home to Hungarian wine - wine tastings, wine dinners framework - which date shall keep the wine lovers. Our wine list only domestic wines from wineries offer you great emphasis on the fact that any of our guests - even just a drink as well - you can taste it. Wine Enthusiast guests can offer custom home wine tasting, which can be a great help in our structured test sheet and a multitude of wines.

The cold dishes and desserts that everyone can find the right one for him.I hope will soon be among our guests to welcome you and your friends, both!

It was a quiet night, but the owner was happy and enthusiastic. He was very proud of his sources for both food and drink. There was a good selection of set meals, but a la carte was still available. The food was beautifully cooked and presented by the owner's wife. I particularly liked the goose liver starter. An excellent meal... More

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
