About
Situated in a quiet back alley within the bohemian district of Budapest, ARAZ Restaurant, as a fresh breeze of air in the middle of the city centre, invites its guests on a gastronomical adventure with a capacity of 120 people. While located at the centre of the bustling city, the inner terrace of the restaurant feels to be far away from all its noise and awaits the public hungry for culinary delights as a real oasis during the summer months. Nothing proves the creativity of Áron Barka, Chef de Cuisine better than the double menu of the restaurant, which truly preserved the characteristics and traditions of the Hungari-an and French cuisine. We believe there is no doubt that besides the quality

It's back, Araz at Hotel Zara on corner Dohany & Nyar utca VII district in Pest with the Monday to Saturday lunch menu, 2 courses 2940 huf + mineral water = 3360 huf nearly EUR 10; 3 courses 3640 + drink. Renovated space with comfortable...chairs that also swing round and lots of natural light. Personally, had a light Jokai bableves or bean soup, not too much, and whole trout stuffed with lemon & tomatoes with capers outside, served with butter potatoes and green spring salad; all very good.More

When we visit Budapest , we try to do it during the Christmas time. So it happend this Christmas as well and it was a great decision. Especially that we've visited the Hotel and your Restaurant too. All four of us were amazed about your...absolutely stunning Christmas tree in the hall, it was beautiful. We were having a drink at the upstairs bar, which was really nice then we've had the chance to get a table at your restaurant. The place was busy but it was during the holidays which is normal. I've had the opportunity to try your filet mignon, perfectly cooked and the wine pairing suggested by your kind and professional waiting staff was just excellent. Great dining experience, although we've had to wait for the bill , which is a bit pity. The only really bothering thing was the music and when I've asked the service member regarding live music, surprisingly he said there use to be. I trust we can return soon enough because we've love to hear it. That would make our evening absolutely perfect. Don't get me wrong , it was nice , the service and staff are kind, professional and the experience at Araz is truly great! We can only recommend it to everyone who is visiting Budapest. We look forward coming back soon.More

The restaurant is lovely and the staff are very attentive and pleasant- they can’t do enough for you. I ordered the goulash...and duck tagliatelle dishes - can’t fault either, very flavoursome.
