We were here for lunch which was fine...the veal in paprika is recommended...I suggest if you are here for lunch ask for the "Business Lunch" Menu otherwise you will be steered to the dinner menu is rather heavy if you are looking for a light lunch option. If the "Gypsy" musicians are playing they are charming, but will be at... More

We had visited Callas on our last trip in 2010 & were looking forward to going again. This restaurant does not disappoint , they have raised good service to an art form, & nothing is left to chance . The food is sublime, certainly not cheap , but worth every cent, especially when you have been anticipating a real treat... More

The menu, which features both traditional Hungarian dishes such as Veal Paprikas and modern interpretations based on local ingredients, was thoughtful and creative. The atmosphere was delightful, with musicians... More

I wanted to go to the Callas Cafe because they had veal paprikash on the menu and I had been wanting to try that. It was excellent as was the roast duck breast my husband ordered. For starters we had a tappas plate that included goose liver, marinated parprika, prawns, cheese and other delicacies. Including wine, beer and hard cider,... More

Prompt and courteous service coupled with wonderful outdoor atmosphere and warm indoor dining for cooler nights can't be matched. Waiters allowed us to share meals (HUGE servings) without complaints. Food being terrific, especially the desserts, and a decent wine selection, made this a restaurant we returned to during our Budapest stay. Some nights there was also entertainment, an operatic singer... More

Legendary, a must. Have a look at the interior design, the walls, the bar, and try the coffee, and most of all: the sweets. Oh boy!

Great food, great wines, beautiful restaurant. Dining outside was very pleasant. The restaurant is next door to the Hungarian State Opera House.

Historic building, great location, but just didn't quite live up to my expectations, and I am not even sure why, the staff were OK, the food was OK, everything was just OK. We went for an evening meal - it may have a completely different vibe in the day
