While the food and the wine was great, the staff behaviour was a letdown. They had some awful pothead music running during our stay. After an hour or so I asked our waiter to change it to something cozy. After like 10 minutes one of...the staff members changed it back (I assume it was her personal preference) so we just asked for the bill and left.More

My husband and I spent a few hours here during our visit to Budapest. We were looking for a spot for a light bite to eat and a drink. My husband had a few beers while I did one of the wine flight tastings and...then based on that, had a couple of full glasses. We shared one of the cheese and ham sharing boards which were great and plenty of food. It was an unexpectedly lovely break for a Sunday lunchtime and I would highly recommend.More

An amazing evening, we popped in for a glass of wine and stayed the evening. Superb advice on a nice wine and selected a sharing platter which made the evening. Thank you!

Great location, nice view from the terrace to the Danube river and Hotel Gellért. Nice selection of hungarian wine, I recommend the Haraszty - Sauvognion Blanc. Good selection of bistro food, even for a vegan :D Try the eggplant cream. Helpful and friendly. Great place...to spend the evening.More

Every time we are staying at the Gellért, at least one night do we end up at this cozy little wine bar - and the platters are amazing! This time we had an Italian and an Hungarian platter. Both superb - but the Hungarian was...really something extra! A lot of good local wines as well. Bingo!More

This small lovely and friendly bar is located a few steps away from Gellert Hotel, but luckily it is visited by different customers. Wooden tables welcome you to taste an impressive list of top class Hungarian wines, out of which we tasted an outstanding 2017...Syrah, a 11 years old cuvee white wine (St-Margrit) to be remembered and finally without mentioning a pinot gris. They also offer tasty traditional cold and warm Hungarian snacks and small dish to accompany your wines. The staff was very friendly and helpful the first evening. A bit less professional during our 2 subsequent visit. A recommended place away from the downtown crowdMore

We really enjoyed our visit to Palak, the service was great as was the wine and the tapas style food options were delicious. We really enjoyed the modern take on Hungarian food that was on offer. We failed to get a table on a Saturday...so would suggest booking if you want to go on the weekend, luckily we had no problem getting a table during the week.More

This place is amazing with lovely people, excellent food and nice selection of wines. We had a sommelier with us in the group and even she was satisfied with the recommendations. Lovely place with a good location for girls night out.

Being a wine fanatic, I was lucky enough to be staying 50m from what turned out to be the best wine bar / restaurant I've ever found anywhere in the world. It was so good it became a daily stop once discovered. Adam was the...most amazing waiter, and by day 3 I didn't even need to look at the menu. I told him what type of wine I wanted to drink (2008 Kreinbacher St. Margit was a winner for me) and he suggested food. He was on point every time. Best dining experience of 2019. Highly recommended. You won't be disappointed.More

A wonderful little place, with friendly personal and a relaxed atmopshere. The Palack is located right across the street from the Hotel Gellert, and the 47/48/49 stop right next to it. After 8pm it is difficult to get a spot unless you have reserved, but...give it a try! I enjoyed spending an hour here, having a few dips (humus with pita bread, very nice, and home-made bruschetta) and a glas of wine. Not surprisingly, the wine list is extensive, the staff will help you to find your way through it. A lot of local (young) crowd, so it is fun just to be there and feel teh buzz. Totally recommended!More
