We visited here twice in the past week as our hotel was only around the corner. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the food was lovely. Portion sizes were huge and it was good value for money. I would recommend a visit.

From the outside it's quite easy to walk right past this restaurant, and actually the interior isn't the smartest in Budapest either but the service and food is really good. It does look like a bit of a 70's throw-back, just needing some rattan-covered Chianti bottles with candles to complete retro look but once you are past this you'll be... More

This restaurant was close to our hotel and recommended by them, can see why as they use their food for room service. A great selection of local dishes and wines, you can eat from a set menu or A la carte. A lovely ambience with friendly and attentive staff make for a great night out. Food is prepared fresh, try...

Our hotel used this restaurant for room service and everything we had was outstanding. I would recommend it for authentic local food using top quality ingredients at great prices. I look forward to a return visit to Budapest, and will definitely visit this restaurant in person next time. Everything was delivered quickly and hot.

Run don't walk to the old Don Leone restaurant, now the Krudy Restaurant (the street). They have a new menu, and the quality, service, presentation easily rivals many overpriced Budapest restaurants. As ex-pats searching for an Italian restaurant in our neighborhood, came across Krudy. Easily, one of the better meals we've had, and have since returned. They serve Mangelica pork... More

No credit card (you discover it at the end. Tourist trap restaurant disguised in and Hungarian traditional and Italian romantic restaurant. The meat was so so, but the most funny was the garniture straight frozen from a supermarket. Chips were less good than on doner kebab. Beer was ok... Don't go there.

It's hard to find a restaurant in Budapest with all four of the above mentioned qualities, but last night at Don Leone proved just that. A friend and I visited during Budapest Dining Week, which means we got 3 courses for a fixed price. The porcini soup was great, probably best part of the meal. Being vegetarian, they made no...

Great food and really friendly, welcoming staff. Portions are generous, we had goulash soup with homemade pasta and carp with delicious potatoes and parsley. Cherry and poppyseed strudel was excellent. Good selection for vegetarians too. Just remember your cash because they don't take cards! Open on a Sunday evening and restaurant is just a few minutes walk from the Palazzo... More
