MAK is excellent! I had the pork cheek appetizer and the pigeon main course and loved both of them. They mix interesting flavors and everything pairs perfectly. They had an amuse bouche before our appetizers came out and also presented one to my friend before...More

It is a fine balance between nonchalant, lassefair and straight to the core discipline when you are seated at Mak. Gone is the wish to create a thick wall between the high intensity kitchen and the clam surroundings of the guests. So they merge instead...More

We had the short menu with a fantastic bottle of nature wine to match. All in all we had a very pleasant evening at MAK with great food and a down to earth, yet very professional waiter & sommelier. Thank you!

The dinner was very good and tasty, but the service.... should not be so bad in such a restaurant. My board was broken... they were reading their smartphones near our table.... and so on. I'll not go there again.

This restaurant was our first of three Michelin-starred restaurants we visited in Budapest. The food was average and not served hot, and the service was really no up-to-par for such highly rated restaurant. The highlight of the evening was the bread and the sommelier, who...More

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
