Nice place, shame about the service.

As it was my first visit to Budapest, a visit to the New York Cafe was a must. The surroundings are certainly eye-popping and the drinks we ordered (iced coffee and mocha) were fine. But we were thirsty and asked for two large glasses of water. These didn't arrive, and when we finally got a... read more

Now this was a lovely restaurant. We had been recommended by friends to come here and it did not disappoint. We turned up mid afternoon and got a space though I think we were quite lucky to get seated considering how many people were in there! We got the New York Cafe cake selection and it was so tasty!!

Had booked a table for 6 in advance but they took us straight to the basement, away from all the admittedly impressive decor. Service was at best apathetic, at worst downright rude. We left before we'd ordered any drinks or food. Avoid this place, you'll find it overpriced for the service you'll get, plus you can see the interior from... More

We came here for coffee several times whilst visiting budapest. The cafe area is beautiful and the coffees are delicious. Obviously the prices are higher than average but for a one off coffee we didn't mind.

Although we were a big group we were lucky enough to find a reservation for dinner. And the place did not disappoint. Truly amazing; interior decor, service and food all were up to were expectations and beyond. I would recommend the pink duck, pressed lamb, supreme chicken and squid salad for main dishes and the hazelnut cake for desert. For... More

There are continuous queues to get into this place. the décor is very impressive but quite frankly that is where it stops. there were 4 of us, we all ordered the schnitzel ! they were over cooked, hard and rubbery! the service was impatient and close to being quite rude. The price for the meals and a bottle of wine... More

A beautiful place in a majestic hotel......unfortunately it was cloudy and cold outside so the place was full and a wait list was over 1 hour. We just walked around and took many beautiful photos.....for tea and tea snacks a must .

This was on our list of things to see and do. Caught the Hop on Hop off bus to get there. The building was amazing. Had a wonderful huge lunch. Food was extremely delicious, wine was great and atmosphere fantastic. Staff friendly and pianist playing whilst we devoured our food. Loved it that much we went back for our anniversary... More

Opulent setting, service was good even though it was quite busy- food arrived quickly. Desserts were beautiful. Maybe a bit pricey compared to other places we ate, but it was definitely an experience!

This is a nice restaurant but overpriced, especially for Budapest. I ordered a cappucino and it was very small and very weak but cost a lot. Then I ordered french toast which came with a small salad and three tiny pieces of french toast, It was a SUPER tiny portion, average quality, and didn't come with anything (fresh fruit, etc)....
