By pure luck we stumbled upon this beauty of Hungarian cuisine. The staff is very ambitious and eager and with a few adjustments a second star is a matter of time. Service is very correct, in most western European countries the service has become a bit less formal, so we needed to get accustomed first. But once the ice was... More

From start to finish we had an amazing time at the restaurant. The service was on point—I almost thought one of the staff members were going to hold my hand on the toilet. We had three servers at our table who were courteous and really knew the gastronomy behind each dish. Coming here with my boyfriend on a weekend trip,... More

We were here as a birthday dinner. Such a lovely night from start to finish. Our waiter was lovely and cater to our every need. The dessert course was by far my favorite. Some of the courses were not to our liking, but this has very much to do with personal taste and preferences. The detail and love the chefs... More

We went here by luck. We arrived in the city and asked the hotel to see if we could make a reservation. While the staff laughed that it would be booked for weeks, we actually got a table because someone had cancelled. The staff in this restaurant is very disciplined and trained. They know their languages and recipes. Extra kudo's... More

First, I'll note that my wife thought Costes deserves 5 stars. It's clear why the restaurant has a Michelin star. Each dish had multiple complex components -- such as broth reductions, powders, spherification -- that suggested an enormous effort had gone into conceiving of and executing each dish from the amuse bouche through the desserts. The presentation of each was... More

Had 4 very fine cources, but in the wine menue they only offered one small glas of wine/ cource, we often sat with empty glasses, and had to ask for more. The wine was exelent to each cource, and they was all Hungarian. Very interesting.!! That was disapointing at that price 235€ for 4 cources for 2 persons. Very friendly... More

We went to Costes as a group of ten from our river cruise docked in Budapest. The restaurant was provided as an option in the cruise line's "Michelin-star" dining program...and, as such, we were pretty much expecting the treatment to be somewhat less-than-stellar (as such groups often are). However, we were very wrong. From the moment that we entered the... More

The perfect 'amuses bouches' were a precursor to all that were to follow. Beautifully presented dishes with the most exquisite combination of tastes. We chose the 5 course menu which did not disappoint. The sommelier was very knowledgeable and recommended some excellent local wines which complemented our dishes. Full marks to him for not choosing expensive wines because he could!... More
