About
Every tiny detail of the renewed ZONA is inspired by our trips to global cities. The cuisine is influenced by their diversity, the respect for their cultural heritage and the current gastronomic trends. Exciting flavors, blustering colors unite in a unique location by the Buda side of Chain Brindge, but almost in the downtown. We add an honest, accomodating but professional table service to make your stay a unique experience, so we could show what guest and restaurant relation really means to us. ZONA got 17 Gault Millau points in the past two years (3 hats) and received Dining Guide's Restaurant of the Year award last year.

We chose the lunch menu - 2 courses which was brilliant value and excellent quality. We would definately recommend. The staff were exellent and help us learn a bit more Hungarian. The staff couldn't have done more to make us feel so welcome.

My daughter and I went for lunch when the restaurant we planned to go to was closed. The food was mediocre but very expensive. My chicken was over cooked and dry. Both of us were disappointed in our experience.
