Unique experience It is simply amazing in all aspects. I was sceptical about gourmet dinner in a ”normal” flat, but they proved med wrong. Max 12 people in all ( we were 4). A charming couple, she is doing her magic - because it is...really magic - in the open kitchen while he does everything else, serves, entertains in a carismatic and charming way. You can ask anything about the food he knows every detail. What should I say? I am listening to their Spotify list because even that was perfect. 19:00-23:00 not a booring moment. It was a long time ago I had such an amazing evening at a restaurant ( if ever). Do not miss it!More

Zincenco is what is called an apartment style restaurant. It is literally an apartment on the first floor. A concept very unique and unknown in the States. We had some hesitation but went tonight after reading the reviews. WOW. it was the best experience so...far in our 3 days in Budapest. The space is cozy, well laid out and limited to 8 guests. It is so personal the owners Igor and Zaida ask guests to allow 5 hours for dinner. Crazy, right... The tasting menu is well thought out, uses quality ingredients and is beautifully presented. It is fine dining with the stuffy rules and feel of a traditional restaurant. The flavors just jump off the plate on every. We did the Hungarian wine pairing and all 8 wines matched perfectly and elevated every dish. Price is good for experience 33000 HUF or about $125 PP. Wine is 17000 so 50000 for the entire experience. I highly recommend this unique concept and fabulous spot.More

Zincenco Kitchen was outstanding and the highlight of our weekend in Budapest. Such an incredible experience from start to finish. The attention to detail is phenomenal and passion shines through, from the menu planning, preparation, presentation and enjoyment. We were a group of 5, and...all agreed it's one of the most incredible restaurants we've been to, worldwide. The menu was delicious for all palettes and I'd thoroughly recommend the wine pairing too. Book it before it's more widely discovered!!!More

Wow, what a great experience and fine meal. We enjoyed our evening with 2 other couples we hadn't met from different parts of the world. We all loved to travel and enjoy food, so we had a lot in common. Igor sensed our energy and...moved our tables together so we could all talk more comfortably. It is a very relaxed atmosphere. The food was top notch and harmoniously arranged with great stories and explanations of everything we ate. The local wine pairings were extraordinary and perfectly complemented every course. Delightful in every way.More

An excellent meal. Food was sublime. A novel eating experience. Personal attention and only a small number of diners. Thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend.

We saved our visit for the last night of our holiday to Budapest and was amazed by the experience. From ringing the door bell to leaving the restaurant was a unique dining experience. Igor and Zaida have created a restaurant that has atmosphere and a...food experience that is certainly Michelin Star quality. If you do not do anything else whilst visiting Budapest you must visit Zincenco Kitchen, which certainly merits the constant 5 star reviews. Thank you John and Joanne.More

Это отвал башки! I suggest visiting this restaurant now until it gets a Michelin star, and there will be a waiting list for six months in advance! Although only 2 people work in the restaurant, everything here is brought to perfection. Not only food but...also the atmosphere and serving, communication, and wine pairing. Yes, it's not the cheapest place, but it's worth it.More

We went there with my friend to see why it was the top rated restaurant in Hungary and we weren’t disappointed. Igor and Zaida were amazing hosts, open to our every question and making sure that we have a great time. The food was exceptional...and the drink selection was top notch as well. The whole atmosphere is so warm and welcoming that you can be sure that we will be back for more.More

This was, without doubt, the best dining experience of my life so far! The food is out of this world with such care and attention paid to sourcing, creating, cooking and presenting. They were excellent at catering for a couple of food foibles as well...in our party. Zaida is simply a masterful chef and creates an array of flavours to delight, while Igor is the consummate host and front of house with his explanations and lovely conversation. A true gastronomic experience but in a welcoming and unpretentious atmosphere. We could not have asked for more. We will 100% be back. Thank you both for such a wonderful evening.More
