Description: The restaurant of Attila Molnár and Szása Nyíri is waiting for their guests for more than 20 years already.Arany Kaviár is considered one of the best fine dining restaurants. They improve Russian cuisine. They prepare traditional dishes with contemporary methods, the way we like them.For five years the restaurant is recommended by the Michelin guide.Accordingly, one of the cornerstones of the menu is the “Traditional Russian cuisine”, the true and worthy representatives of the classic cuisine of the court of the Czars. The dishes are based on traditional Russian recipes, preserving their authentic feel, but are prepared with modern techniques and ingredients. The dishes are not reinvented, but improved.The other pillar of the menu is the wide selection of marine and freshwater “Fish dishes”, and their diverse compilations. The premium quality and year-round availability of domestic fishes are guaranteed by our close cooperation with fisheries; and our carefully selected seafood is supplied by the fish market of Strasbourg.The third and most important pillar of the menu is the “Caviar Gourmet Menu”, and the Caviar Card, listing the caviars produced and distributed by the restaurant and the dishes prepared with them, thus demonstrating the versatility of the culinary utilization of caviar. The Arany Kaviár Gourmet Selection has represented and conveyed the philosophy and values of the restaurant within and outside its walls. The “Hungarian caviar” successfully debuted on the international market in 2011. On the largest and most prestigious hospitality exhibition, the SIRHA in Lyon, world-renowned chefs sampled Arany Kaviár’s product.

“Speaks With Its Heart”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

There is nothing bland or temperate about Arany Kaviar. From the warm decor to the compendium of fairly priced wines, to the professional service, wide choice of food and tasteful preparation, this establishment is the best we found in Budapest. And it is no wonder: the owner is on the premises politely overseeing each presentation. Arany Kaviar made us smile from beginning to end.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Nice decor and service but too slow and the food belongs to a novel style: Micro Nouvelle Cuisine. I was also expecting kaviar on the kaviar menu and I got just few micrograms on the dessert. Low value for money.

“Amazing food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

The restaurant was really decadent and cosy at the same time, which created a lovely ambience. The food was delicious, cooked to perfection and beautifully presented. The owner Atilla and his partner were very attentive and hospitable and talked us through all the options on the menu, and made suggestions about what we should eat. We were very happy with all the suggestions. We also tasted a lot of different vodkas which was an experience in itself! Service was superb, and the waiters were genuinely smiley, and happy to serve and help in any way they could. All in all a very happy and memorable experience with some of the best food I have ever tasted. I wish I lived in Budapest so I could go there more often. Seema. Uk

“Very good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

It's pricy but the food was good, as was the service. The chef made some changes to accommodate a no red meat request. Portions aren't that small and we left well sated! Sommelier was pleasant and knowledgable! Great recommendation from the concierge!

“Disapointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

After reading reviews I was really looking forward to eat here but was disappointed. Don't get me wrong Food is good and presentation fantastic but micro portions. Not trying to disrespect the place, maybe my fault , but just to let people be aware .
