Overpriced, nice

It was almost empty after beginning of the opera, probably targeted for pre-opera crowd, food was good (a little too greasy), music was nice, service very attentive, prices too much, but considering location may be understandable

This restaurant is located right next to the opera. It was almost empty when we walked in after a performance at the opera house but quickly filled up with other opera goers. The food was well prepared and elegantly presented. Prices were very reasonable for this type of restaurant in Budapest. Live music was also on offer from an excellent... More

Next to the Opera house enjoy the beautiful art deco scene in the Callas restaurant. Also creative & good food quality and excellent & pleasant service. A real joy to have lunch or dinner. And a nice start for a art nouveau tour in the area. Metro Opera ideal.

My girlfriend and I came here after the ballet hoping for a quick bite to eat and knowing that few places would be open. We didn't expect it to be one of the best dining experiences we would have whilst staying in the city. The staff were incredibly polite and helpful and the food was amazing (I had and Hungarian...

Visited here for a pre-opera meal. Food was excellent and very good value - would recommend the Budapest Fillet Steak. And definitely try one of the desserts - fantastic selection

Went to the symphony and booked Callas afterwards. Good choice, easy walk across the street. Cocktails excellent. Menu comprehensive, all the food was delicious; our kids could find something they liked...a bit like a dark Galatoire's if you have ever eaten there. Would recommend.

The concierge at the Cornithia Hotel recommended the restaurant for dinner after we attended the Opera. The restaurant is just across the street from the Opera House. Our reservations were for 1030pm and little did we expect a wonderful 4 string quartet with a pianist playing beautifully. Wow, we were blown away. We would never find such a great restaurant...

Located adjacent to the state Opera House this wonderful restaurant offers many elegant dishes. We started with a broccoli soup, then enjoyed main entrees such as a multi-variation pork dish presentation, and a farm raised chicken dinner. We finished the meal with delicious, but not overly filling desserts. Throughout the dining experience we enjoyed a quintet playing many classical standards.... More
