Me and my friends had the pleasure to taste the vegan chef's menu, and it was absolutely wonderful! Small portions of beautifully and elegantly prepared gems arrived in 5 minutes intervals, every time surprising us with the diversity of the delicious palette. Serving was also...first rate, including explaining all the secrets and ingredients of each dish. Wine selection too is one of the best in the city. The restaurant is Michelin Plate recommended place, but truly it deserves 3 stars! Incredible experience, highly recommended!More

We were welcomed very warmly and were lucky enough to get a table on Valentine’s Day without even booking, earning to the fact that previous reservation didn’t show up. The food was amazing, every dish was expertly composed and very well executed. Staff was mindful...and always on their guard. The wine pairing was refreshful and unexpected. We can wholeheartedly recommend this establishment for anyone who is looking for an amazing dining experience with a familiar feel and great staff.More

We had the pleasure of having Tapas in the Laurel Budapest Wine bar. We had our 2 year old with us and everyone was wonderful with him. Food was fantastic as was the ambiance, presentation and service. We loved our Waiter, Shomee. We loved chatting...with him. We even had him pick out some wine and they were great choices. We highly recommend checking out the Laurel Wine Bar. The prices are very good as well as being family friendly - if you want a night out but also want/need to bring the kids.More
