We had dinner in this relatively newly furbished restaurant on the riverside of Buda and were impressed of the good food, service and general setting. In general, we really enjoyed our stay, although prices are a bit costly. Very much recommendable and really worth the price difference to the meat boutique next door (which we experienced two days earlier and... More

The whole ZONA experience was delightful. Our waiter was great and the manager was very attentive. They made fantastic recommendations. My friend and I cleaned our plates. With a lovely view of the Danube, it could not have been a better dinner.

Incredible food, friendly staff and great location. Make sure you book. Will not be disappointed! The bresaola was absolutely exquisite as a starter. Was apprehensive on the quality considering how central it was but the food was absolutely amazing.

A solid great experience! We liked everything including all three desserts on the menu which we ordered to share. The service is very attentive, warm and friendly and prices are very reasonable for such high-quality food. The atmosphere is very laid-back and relaxed. A thoroughly good experience.

Thank Andrey B

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.

Staying in District I / Buda

Neighborhood Profile
District I / Buda
The historical center to a city with a multifarious and intricate past, Buda has some of the most outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube. Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.
