After the Opera...

Well you walk out of the Opera House on immediately on your right is Callas - though the waiter did not think she had been there. Our two wives were greeted with "champagne for the ladies?" of course you cannot refuse once this has been "offered". So the bolly turns up. Generally the wines we... read more

Cool Coffee and Tea house in the 'regent street' of Budapest just outside the amazing Opera House. Closest tube station Opera.

The Restaurant is at very good location but it failed to meet our expectations. Service was very poor. Even though we asked a couple of times with which credit cards can pay they didn't respond, and in the end we were unpleasantly surprised when they said they do not accept our card. P.S. the toilet was very dirty

restaurant/bar next to the opera house. Very nice and large restaurant; we only had a very good (large) beer on the terrace. Price/quality good

This bar/restaurant is conveniently located opposite the opera house. Both the food and the surroundings were elegant and the service was good.

Well, the title is NEARLY right, as this atmospheric cafe-restaurant sits hard alongside the Hungarian State Opera building on Andrassy ut. and dinner is invariably accompanied by a high-calibre piano quartet playing Hungarian and Viennese 'standards'. On the occasion we were there a floorshow seemed to have been laid on involving a costumed dancing couple (lots of stamping and thigh-slappng!)... More

This restaurant had a beautiful atmosphere. Cool decor, and candlelit tables. The food was amazing. We all ended up choosing the Hungarian speciality which was a lovely beef dish with ratatouille. So delicious, I can still remember it now!

To have a cake and eat it, a glass of beer and an ice cream, sitting outside in the shade waiting and watching the city go by. Really friendly waiters and good clean toilets upstairs. We came here a few times and just lapped up the atmosphere.

Tasty duck breast with aubergine. Top service. Does not accept credit cards, but they have a ATM in the entrance, so that is not a problem. Really nice atmosphere!
