One of the top 2 or 3 restaurants in Budapest. Outstanding in every way. Service, food, atmosphere, sommelier (a little snooty but knowledgable). Many courses in addition to your choice of 3-7 ordered courses. This is a restaurant not to be missed if you are a true food lover. Michelin star for several years.

A variety of options available - went for the four course of Ravioli, Sea Bass, Pigeon and ending with Cream and Custard. Overall food was good but not explosive - certainly on the expensive side. Staff were professional and not overbearing. Would recommend for a super special evening out ....... just remember your Platinums Credit Card

We found ourselves in the vicinity of this well rated restaurant, on the way back from the Szchenyi baths. We did not look like fine diners with a back pack and trainers! We were politely asked if we had read the menu, and asked to return in 20-30 mins when a table would be available. We returned, and were welcomed.... More

I cannot really say much about Costes. I really wanted to visit a restaurant that has been awarded with michelin stars and although in Chicago was not affordable for me, here it was - very expensive but I could handle. This is not eating, it is indeed an experience. Every detail was taken care of. The personnel were very polite... More

An amazing restaurant that I had booked some 9 months ago to ensure we got a table. Was worth the wait, every course was beautifully presented, the staff were knowledgable and happy and were a pleasure to be served by. Having eaten in quite a few michelin star restaurants, this one thoroughly deserves its star, and I hope they go... More

Nice modern restaurant. The waiters was great, we were 3 young people (not the usual guest of a michelin star restaurant) but i made no difference to their attentive and professional service. We had a four course menu, paired with wine. I loved that their represented Hungary so much. Local dishes, local wine. A great evening.

We loved every dish at our dinner at Costes. The staff was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. You can choose a tasting menu of 4, 5, or 7-course menu while you have your choice of which dishes to include in the tasting menu out of their 14 dish menu. Additionally, you can ordered the wine-paring, when they choose a special... More

Wow. What a fantastic restaurant! Very classy fit-out with dark wood panelling, accompanied by contemporary luxurious fabrics and florals. If there is a manual on how to deliver perfect, friendly, knowledgable and faultless service, the team here wrote it. Sommelier guiding and explaining. All courses served with care and detailed explanations of the elements. We selected a four course option... More
