The Janos Restaurant is located in the Charles Hotel where we were staying. We had breakfast every morning and the food was lovely, four or five different cereals, Scrambled Eggs, Fried Eggs and Wieners and a lovely selection of Cheese, Cold Meats, Tomatoes, Cucumber, hard...Boiled Eggs, good selection of Bread and Rolls and tea, coffee, fruit juice. We ate every night in the Restaurant for dinner and again the food was delicious and the staff are excellent. Would not hesitate to recommend this Restaurant.More

The restaurant is located in the 3 stars Charles hotel. Serving was very attentive, our waiter talked very good english. Goulash soup ok but not in top of what i've eatten. Chilli cheese soup with nachos, interresting, good. Beef consomme was appreciated by my friendly...but i didn't liked it. Charles burger excellent taste, i recommend it. Beef cheeks very tender, with zuchinni side dish, with dill, very good overall. Pork muscle snitzel ok but not very tender. Caesar salad ok. Spaghetti with prawns ok. Prices aren't low but it worth it. Food presentation very good. Parking places cand be found near it.More

The staff was very kind and the whole dinner was very good at the right price. Multi-language menu is very helpful for strangers and it ranges from traditional Hungarian to more European-like dishes, that can be accompanied with good wines, from a rich list you...can choose from.More

As I was staying in Hotel Charles I dined in the restaurant several times. I had wonderful meals every time, but my favourites were the beef cheeks and the lamb shank! I also recommend the Hungarian Menu if you’re hungry as it’s a 5 course...tasting menu. For desserts I suggest the cottage cheese dumplings, as it’s one of the most amazing desserts I’ve ever had, with the home made apricot jam! The staff is very friendly and kind and the atmosphere is also lovely. I really recommend this restaurant if you’d like a memorable night out in Budapest! Thank you once again!More

We visited this restaurant in July. Their special that day was Australian rump steak. Was it good - it was brilliant! Service was also outstanding, helpful and so polite. If you are in Budapest then this is the place go to! I wanted my steak...rare and the owner suggested medium rare would be better for this steak. He was right!More

First night in Budapest was very wet and rainy but we were soon cheered up by the food and drink at Janos. The soups were very tasty, the steaks were "small but perfectly formed" and the house red wine was extremely drinkable. All the staff...were friendly and efficient.More
