We attended Varosliget in April and it was one of the most pleasant memories of all the restaurants in Budapest. Especially I'd like to thank Adrian the waitress whose attitude and professionalism was absolutely outstanding! Naturally, when we wanted to celebrate our wedding anniversary, we...came back to Varosliget in June 2022. I have to admit that we were in the best Budapest restaurants including Hoppa and Comme Chez Soi but they were not wow for us. Varosliget is the restaurant where everything matches- a stunning view on the lake and the castle, delicious food and caring service. We will definitely come back again!More

I booked Varosliget for lunch a few weeks before my arrival and I am glad I did because I saw a few people turned away who had not booked. My lunch of smoked duck salad for starters and salmon with vegetables washed down with a...cooling refreshing glass of white wine was just what I needed. Its pricier than most places but you pay for the atmosphere and the venue. I sat outside and its a shame that they don't have external seating at the back with beautiful views of the lake. I would return and recommend in a heartbeat. If you are in the Vajdahunyad Castle, Hero's Square area then book this place. You will not regret it. I saw them able to accommodate a party of ten people without booking but turn away a solo young woman who had not booked. As a solo traveller myself, restaurants know that they make less money on one diner than a full table. Sometimes you don't know what your plans are like on the day but either way you have to eat, so book up online and cancel if your plans change. I used to be the one that would tell the waiter that I don't mind sharing my table especially if I was coming to the end of the meal, just so that a solo person could get a seat. I no longer do that because in these modern times, you can email or phone in advance, even 15 minutes before. I don't mean to be harsh but you are spending sometimes just a few days in a magical city, make it count by planning and enjoying the best that there is to offer.More

The goulash soup I had was a-ma-zing! Highly recommend trying that one, even if you're not that hungry. The waitress, Adrienn, was super friendly and even gave me 2 postcards as a gift, when she noticed that I was signing my own ones. It was...unexpected and very kind of her. I will definitely be back again to try more of that menu had to offer.More

We absolutely loved this restaurant! The waitress gave the best service and spoke good English. She was very warm and friendly! My husband asked for a substitution instead of potatoes. The chef was so nice to provide a low carb side instead. The food was...delicious! The view of the castle was lovely. Our waitress even called a taxi and told us how long before the arrival time and what type of car to watch for. We loved or waitress, Admenn. She made our time seem so special.More

Having found this delightful place the day before, we were having a walk around the adjoining park when rain threatened so we decided to visit again. Some of the staff had changed but we were attended to by Adrien who was a most charming young...woman. The food again was a treat but she also introduced us to a local spirit distilled from sour cherries - very fiery. It is really the nicest place for a light lunch that I have visited.More
