Description: The American literature author John Steinbeck was told by his professor that he would be an author when pigs flew. When he eventually became a novelist, he started to print every book he wrote with the insignia: ‚Ad astra per alia porci“ (to the stars on the wings of a pig) to encourage his readers never to give up believing that nothing is impossible.We believe: in dreams and in the love of gastronomy there are no impossibilities! Enjoy our unique and innovative selection of delicious Hungarian fusion food only from the freshest and finest local ingredients! Taste our carefully selected Hungarian wines from award-winning cellars!

“Excellent food, good location.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

After reading reviews on trip advisor we found this restaurant along the river. Unfortunately the tables outside were full so we had to sit outside, but it would have been lovely to sit with a view of the river. The waiter was friendly and attentive, also making conversation which was nice. We were warned that service may be a bit slower than usual due to being busy (although inside it was pretty quiet). The wait for food was not bad at all and I quite like to have a bit of a gap between starter and main. He also brought over a small complimentary taster of the veal liver pate and bread which was lovely. The duck breast was devine, the best I have ever had. Beautifully pink and tasty, the fruit and polenta went really well with it. Would definitely recommend. With wine, 2 shared starters, 4 mains and 1 dessert it came to about 7000 forint (about £20 I think). Would love to go back.

“great food, great wine...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

I just visited Carne di Hall restaurant, had a rose - grilled duck breast with polenta and fruit and a bottle of Kekfrankos rose suggested by the waiter. Financial "damage" at HUF 8k incl. tip, so quite a good ratio ;)
It's a one great place to dine I must admit - the duck was near to perfect and the wine suited the course just great. Service was excellent with the waiter giving hints concerning wine (the list is pretty extensive) thanks to whom I decided on rose I'd never have taken otherwise (I'm a great fan of red wines) and I would have made a mistake :)
Food and service aside, the surrounding is nice, very close to the Fisherman's Towers and overlooking the Duna River towards Parliament. This means the walk after the dinner can really be a pleasant finale of the day.

“Good food and a knowledgable Sommelier”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

We were made very welcome and when asked for a wine recommendation the Sommelier brought a selection of wines for us to try and had great knowledge of their provenance. Food and service was exceptional.

“Good food, nice view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2012 via mobile

We ate here on a Friday evening and, surprisingly, we were the only table. The food was lovely, not Hungarian particularly but tasty "european" standard. The prices were decent (two courses and drinks for two came to 40 Euro), and unlike most places we've eaten in Budapest the service charge wasn't added by default allowing you to tip as you.pleased.
Recommend a visit here rather than some of the other more tourist-centred restaurants along the Danube.
