Come here for the goose liver menu, we enjoy each and every dish we served from the menu. Goose liver sampler, risotto, goat's cheese, and of course the main dish of goose liver - all great. Very good and quite environment and outstanding service...

Top quality food, wine and service. If you want to treat yourself, this is the place to go. Worth booking at busy times, we just managed to get a table walking in midweek

This was one places near our hotel that the concierge recommended. It has a warm, inviting atmosphere and the staff are both welcoming & efficient. If you are looking for more of an old world Hungarian experience, this is probably not your place. No music (it is pretty quiet) and the creamy walls and dark furniture produce a continental ambiance.... More

First impression was that we decreased the average age in the restaurant dramaticly. BUT the food was great and the staff was both friendly and fun. Don't miss this!

We enjoyed the dining experience at this restaurant very much. Loved the foie gras! The waiters were friendly and attentive. There were four of us and we were all happy with our meals and the experience. Do book ahead as the place is small and popular. It was a short walk from our hotel, The Intercontinental, so walking distance from... More

Myself, my wife and a friend had made reservations at Tigris for dinner and upon our arrival were led to some open tables. The waiter said we could have our pick. We sat next to the wine on the right side and had a nice view of the restaurant along with all the awards it had received, on the walls.... More

The food in Tigris is Hungarian and quite good. Service is excellent. They have an extensive wine list that includes many Hungarian wines. Sommelier is very knowledgeable and can give good advice on wine selection. Price is reasonable.

7 years ago we were very satisfied when visiting Tigris. This time our expectations were maybe too high. The food and wines were ok but not more. A dinner for two persons was not worth for 90 euros.

Met an ex south african on the plane and he gave me a list of restaurants. I asked the concierge and he suggested another one. Did not like so choose Tigris which was 100m from the Kempinski. Well it was like a 2 star Michelin with a relaxed feel. Beautiful decor just in keeping with the grand space. Only great... More

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
