The restaurant has a really cool, stylish feel to it and was quite relaxed despite the upmarket feel to it. The staff seemed knowledgable and were friendly and managed to fit us in at quite short notice
Some of the dishes were quite adventurous, such as the duck liver creme brûlée, the presentation was great but the execution just didn't work. The sweetness of the burnt sugar overpowered the duck and the two flavours didn't compliment each other in the same way a jam or sauce would.
I also agree with the previous comments made about a briney sea bass pasta dish - that is the best way to describe the taste, which was uncomfortably salty and meant I couldn't finish the dish. The Veal in pastry dish my partner ordered was nice, but lacking in taste and accompaniments.
The bread for the table was a good selection, but was brought late so was a slightly odd snack to have between the starter and main.
Overall I would definitely give Fausto's a visit if you are in Budapest, if only for the classy setting, great area and menu items that work.
