Coming back from Tigris few minutes ago and I have to say that it was amazing. Professional staff, very attentive and knowledgeable. The food was fantastic, and selection of Hungarian wine impressive. Would come back with French family for another Foie gras degustation.

This restaurant has both a tasting menu and a la carte. The food is spectacular and it's hard to describe, although the tasting menu seems to be designed around a traditional Hungarian culinary framework. I've been here a couple of times with my wife and with guests, and my wife and I have done the full circuit of Budapest fine... More

We had dinner here and were pleasantly surprised by how first class the restaurant was. The staff are all dressed formally and displayed impeccable manners. The menu had selections from all tastes and well represented local fare. The costs were reasonable and the service was spectacular. You walk away feeling as though you were a VIP.

The food was great, but we had told the waiter that we didn't want wine because we didn't drink alcohol and he didn't warn us the the dessert we had chosen to share had plenty of it, despite having asked what was each dessert made of

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.
