Restaurant on an island in the city :)

Nice place. Great location with a view on a lake in the park. Food was at average and nothing really special. Simple and good.

What a great restaurant! We were a group of 10 ladies who had booked a table here. Service was very good from beginning to end. The waiter was in good mood, was attentive and made sure our glass was never empty. The food was very good! It was one of the best meals I've eaten in a very long time.... More

I visited Robinson with group of colleagues. Our table was reserved and perfectly prepared. The staff was very attentive, always prepared to advice during meal and wine selection. I had local goulash soup and paprikash, both very tasty plus the portion was big more than enough. My colleagues had mainly steaks and everybody was satisfied. I can recommend this restaurant...

We arrived without a reservation, but were seated immediately. The waiters were attentive and friendly, the menu had a lot of attractive choices. I had a plate of pork tenderloin and potatoes that rivaled any meal I've ever had in a restaurant. Their specialty is beef, specifically steaks, but the pork was very, very good. The prices were very reasonable... More

Beautiful restaurant surrounded by a park. I had cod fish with miso sauce and extra grilled vegetable and it was perfect. The staff is very professional and the somelier very helpfull with the wine list. A bit pricy for Budapest but I highly recommend.

We found Robinson Steaks on our last night in town. The location and design is super cool. The staff and service is friendly and attentive. We had salad, steaks, vegetables, potatoes, wine and dessert. Everything was very good. This restaurant could make it anywhere in the world. We enjoyed the entire dining experience.
