“1st Culinary surprise in hungary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

Having sampled many Hungarian restaurants this Ikon is a real culinary surprise. Right in the centre of Debrecen. Whit the tram stopping right in front of the restaurant, so no need to drive and look for a place to park.
The menu at first glance does not look much different from other menu's in Hungary, the dishes are. In fact they are of a very high culinary standard. The staff is very professional. The interior is suitably modern. And choosing wines to compliment the chosen dishes can be left in the able hands of the staff. Nobody has to turn the wines down, travelling by tram! I was under the impression the menu changes frequently, matching whatever fresh products are available. So, I can not really recommend a certain dish. What I would advise is to make up your own mind on what you would fancy to eat, tell the staff and ask them what they would recommend. Want to know more? Just look up their website: http://www.ikonrestaurant.com/home/

The only thing I regret about Ikon is that the restaurant is closed on Sundays and Mondays...

“Best restaurant in Debrecen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013 via mobile

Finally a really good fine dining place in Debrecen. One of the best in HU, and definitely the best in Debrecen. The waiters are very polite and competent, would be good to meet these kind of waiters in Budapest as well :).

“Real fine dining in Debrecen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

After several visits with family and/or business partners it is still true: the only fine dining place in Debrecen is the IKON. The amazing food (made only from fresh ingredients) pairs with friendly and professional service.

The meals are a bit oversized, so it is almost impossible to have a 3 or 4 course dinner but one can try the degustation menu what is a real gourmet experience for a funny low price.

So if in Debrecen and want to have something unquestionably fine for lunch or dinner, do not miss this place!

“The IKON of the new hungarian gastronomy...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2013

When the last summer the IKON Restaurant was opened i had some doubts about they future in an eastern hungarian city. Because until that day only Budapest had real fine dining restaurants. Yesterday i eated in the IKON, a so called "business menu", that really worths the time and many we spend it in. Every dish was made like in a michelin star restaurant in Paris or New York but at affordable price.The high ranking gastronomy is aviable in Debrecen thanks to the IKON, and this is more than having a good place to eat, it is a signal about the livestyle, and economic level of the hungarian countryside. If you visit Debrecen, visit and eat in the IKON it is a must do do... No more comment needed...
