We travel around the world a lot and when I say this is an excellent restaurant I know what I am talking about. We were recommended to visit Fausto's by our friend who told us to order a set menu. What an amazing experience we had! Everything we tried was absolutely mind-blowing. If you go there... read more

We went here, recommended by my sister who used to live in Budapest, and boy am I glad that she told us about Fausto's! We were welcomed very warmly, lovely friendly attentive, but not at all intrusive staff. The menu is first class quality fine dining, we chose dishes, knowing that the head chef had crafted them for their beauty... More

We had a great dinner here. Tried to book the same day but it was full so we went for the dat after. Had a great pasta as starter and a piece of meal as main course. Fairly expensive though!

Didn't expect to eat at this place but found out it is nearby. Not easy to find as it's not on the Main Street but at a smaller alley across from Dohany. The price and food are reasonable. We ordered pork loin and salmon. Both are finely cooked. Portion is not big but good enough for lunch. Recommended place to... More

Had a 2 course in the restaurant together with 6 girlfriends. The food was great and we got a "surprise" dessert in addition to the courses we paid for but in my mind the prices are too high keeping in mind the price level in Budapest. Would rather try one of the Michelin restaurants than to go here again.

They have 2 places. The restaurant and the osteria. This review is about the Ristorante. Very nice atmosphere with a good, professional and friendly service. They have some nice Italian wines on the list at more or less affordable prices. The food was refined but way to expensive. Had a marinated tuna with shrimps and ginger mayonnaise...fine but nothing spectacular.... More

Enjoyable experience in Budapest. Hungary has some tasty wines, and we were able to sample many here. The restaurant is located inside Castle Hill on the Buda side. It creates a lovely (if chilly) ambience. Gabor Nagy was our sommelier and he took us on a delightful journey through Hungary's various wine regions. When visiting Budapest, make time (and reservations)... More

Almost walked past! This place has lovely relaxed surroundings and atmosphere. You can choose between fine dining and bistro. We chose bistro. Service is SO attentive! We had 3 courses plus lots of house wine. Prices comparable to UK. Well, food would have been cheap but amount of wine bumped bill up. Would highly recommend if not on a budget.

we were immediately sold by fausto's interiour when passing by during the day. We went back at dinner time and did not regret. Very friendly waiters, very good wine (we asked for advise for a red hungarian wine and were recommended one that did fit well with our course - not a standard wine they recommend at every table, as...

No doubts that their food is delicious. The staff is very attentive and the service is great. My one complaint is that it is a little too "gourmet" in my opinion. Italians usually serve big portions for everything. Don't go there thinking that only a primi or secondi piatti will be enough, because their portions are small, so that makes... More
