As a food snob and restauranter based out of arguably the greatest food capital in the world (New York City), I'm pretty difficult to please when I go to new restauants. Many are good or mediocre, but few give me the "WOW" factor. Fausto's gave me that "WOW" factor. I had heard Faustos was incredible before I went to Budapest,... More

Many reviews have been posted about the food and ambience. Both would not be out of place in San Francisco or New York but the one thing that sets it apart from most others is the service. Understated, professional, attentive and knowledgable and the one thing missing is someone clearing plates before all diners are finished and someone standing over... More

We have been coming to Fausto's for several years now (at both its current and previous premises) and dined here again two weeks ago to celebrate my birthday. Fausto's remains very comfortably our favourite restaurant in Budapest - and we have been to quite a few. Admittedly, we haven't yet tried either of the two Michelin-starred restaurants in the city... More

My wife and I ate here on one of the nights of our mini-moon, and had booked on the back of some reviews we’d read online. Fausto’s says that it “offers classic Italian courses sprinkled with the latest arts of contemporary cuisine” and I think on the whole this is what we experienced. The restaurant was light and airy with... More

The soup of the day was Pasta Fagoli - oh my, what a start to a fabulous meal. We ate in the Osteria part of the restaurant, where you can order off both the Osteria menu and the fine dining menu. We were very casually dressed for the evening so we chose the Osteria. Deer ragout tagliatelle and whole fish... More

I went with some friends to try this restaurant. It is essentially 2 restaurants that share a kitchen. The Osteria is a welcoming trattoria design while the Ristorante to which we went to is a bright more upscale smart design elegant place. The appetizers are great as was all the dishes we have tried. Nice presentation and very good service.... More

I was here last weekend and it was perfect, I don't understand why they don't have a star and Bor Konyha does.. I been to both of them and spend the same amount of money. I really really advice this restaurant for fine dining it's one of the best.

This has been a great gourmet experience! Good food, service and atmosphere. But we walked around Budapest in vain, as the TripAdvisor map is wrong. The address is correct, but the map is wrong. Anyway, this is definitely a place we'll be visiting next time in Budapest.

Our dinner in this restaurant was superb. Service was outstanding and food was absolutely fabulous. Prices are double what I paid at other restaurants in Budapest, but this is what I expect from a fancy gourmet restaurant.

For an Italian this is absolutely an average restaurant where the menu is not even properly written in Italian which already says enough... The service is great, attentive and considerate. The food is edible but again nothing exceptional compared to the average restaurant you can find down any road in any Italian City. The place is overly expensive, we spent... More
