We read about this place in the Lonely Planet and thought we'd give it a try....so glad we did as it was the best food we had while in Budapest. We didn't book but went at lunch time and there were plenty of tables. We had the 4 course tasting menu with wine, which was all delicious. The staff were... More

We read about the place in the new michelinguide and we were not disapointed, very friendly and exceptionally helpfull staff. The food felt like a trip into hungarian cuisine and unlike other places with 8 course menus (with vine) you didnt go home hungry after. Only thing i would put my finger on was that the waiters were a little... More

Had a quick lunch in this quaint little restaurant off a busy street. I loved the fact that you could walk past it in the street and never know that an eatery was tucked away there. Booking was easy, waiter could have been a touch friendlier upon arrival and while serving. 4-5 main courses were presented on the set menu... More

The food was well presented and delicious. Waiters were attentive and the sommelier did a great job. Only Hungarian wines were served along our 8 course tasting menue - all of minor brands - you won't find the big names here. Many tourists in the restaurant - few locals only. We live since 4 years in Budapest and came back... More

We had our first dinner with my wife there right after our wedding ceremony in August 2008. Since then we celebrate our anniversary in Csalogány 26. every year. They make us the date the very best day of our year, the food, the venue, the atmosphere is really the highlights of our summer, and the waiter is the best man... More

We chanced on the opportunity to visit Csalogany on a Saturday at lunchtime. There was hardly anyone there - a few tables had guests, which is quite a contrast to dinnertime. The mid-week special menus are on also on Saturday, and all the whistles (daily specials, wines by the glass, etc.) are available. Prices seem a little lower than at... More

We had no idea what a treat we were heading for when we set out that night.Indeed had I known I might have changed out of the clothes I had been walking in all day!

The invitation came from a wonderful friend for an evening of good company and impressive dining, and I was not disappointed. The atmosphere aims for a simple, almost informal, elegance (it could be a bit more decorative for my baroque tastes). We opted for the eight course meal with accompanying wines. The portions are only a bit more than bite... More

I will never understand why a chef has to stand outside on the street in his uniform (that is dirty) close to the entrance of the restaurant. It is a good idea if he is the host of the place (well presented, clean uniform) but not like this... The "dirty uniform" theme will continue in the service area as well.... More

My friend and I pop in here for lunch on our first trip to Budapest. It took us a while to find the place on foot, but when we got there, we weren't disappointed. We opted for the four course meal (8 seemed a bit daunting for lunch), and we were impressed with every single dish. The portion sizes were... More
