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!

“Best restaurant in Budapest!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We've initially visited Carne di Hall because of the flying pigs, my friend is the biggest pig-fan, but what we found was the BEST FOOD WE'VE EVER HAD! Both of us have seen a lot in this life, many countries, many places, many kitchen, but this restaurant definitely tops them all!
The chef is experimenting with all sorts of tastes, forms, and each dish is a work of art.
We'll definitely be regulars there.

A 100% must have if you're in town!
(Advance reservation might be useful but you can get lucky.)

“extraordinary combination of tradition and modernity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

when we decided to go to carne di hall we hadn't read all the reviews, and we got very surprised.... this restaurant proposes the traditional hungarian food in a modern view. the staff is very kind and carefull. also the wine was very good. I kindly recommend to go to this restaurant even if your hotel is in pest and you should take tram or taxi.

Needless to say something more, really. They served us food. It went quick, they were really nice, and food tasted better than 98% of other restaurants i've been to.

Our first night in Budapest, we had dinner at this restaurant because it was quite close to our hotel. The food is good, while the staff is extremely pleasant and professional with excellent knowledge of English.

“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I were in Budapest for a long weekend with our two young children. We chose this restaurant based on the TA reviews and proximity to our hotel. We were not disappointed at all. Because we have two little kids who were exhausted from walking all day, we were eating dinner quite early (5:30). We were the only guests in the restaurant and had excellent service. I sometimes worry about taking my kids in to eat at nicer establishments. We were not made to feel our children were a bother at all. Our three- and seven-year old split a wonderful chicken plate with me. My husband raved about the filet with homemade pommes frites. The goulash was amazing and beautifully presented. And you cannot beat the price. For soup, a glass of wine, two beers, two juices, two main courses, and dessert we paid about 50€. We will be recommending this restaurant to everyone we know traveling to Budapest.
