We stopped here for lunch during our visit to Budapest. It was a lovely setting. We sat at the window in the courtyard area. It was very lovely, quiet and peaceful. The service was exemplary – friendly, attentive and thoughtful. They had a very affordable lunch special that included a delicious salmon dish with a lemon dessert. I mentioned to... More

Stopped in after using "Near me now" on TripAdvisor. One of my most memorable afternoons in Budapest. Food was great, wines were fabulous. Our waiter was one of the most helpful ever.

This Michelin listed restaurant was incredible. We didn't have their signature caviar flight, but my husband had the sole, and the scallop starter which he is still talking about. The server, Gabriel and the sommelier Ilona were so friendly and knowledgeable they made us feel like family. The wine pairings were perfect...the Russian style lamb dumplings superb. This restaurant is... More

This restaurant is a very intimate atmosphere. The Russian chef prepared a fabulous meal and we enjoyed some beautiful lines. It is on the Buddhist side and a little out-of-the-way but it is worth the trip.

This was a delight! We were sent here by our hotel- the Four Seasons. We sat in the garden room, half open to the outdoors. The wait staff was impeccable.

Went to this restaurant based on Tripadvisor reviews. I booked via e-mail and arrived on time all very slick. The outside new courtyard area is the place to sit. We had the tasting menu and wine selected by the sommelier which was perfect for our food choices. The caviar was great only wish was we should have been more adventurous.

I found this restaurant on trip advisor. The location is not in the center, you have to come to Buda side. It is not far at all, public transportation is excellente to the AK. Prices are high, but the service and the food is just perfect. I been there twice alredy, I really recomend it!

We dined on delicious blini and kaviar, borscht, piroghi, pelmeni, chicken Kiev, Zander fish filet and Standart vodka. The staff was so helpful in designing a meal that brought back memories of living in Ukraine. The wine list was amazing, larger than many town phone books. But who needs wine, when there is vodka to enjoy.

Description
The restaurant of Attila Molnár and Szása Nyíri is waiting for their guests for more than 20 years already.Arany Kaviár is considered one of the best fine dining restaurants. They improve Russian cuisine. They prepare traditional dishes with contemporary methods, the way we like them.For five years the restaurant is recommended by the Michelin guide.Accordingly, one of the cornerstones of the menu is the “Traditional Russian cuisine”, the true and worthy representatives of the classic cuisine of the court of the Czars. The dishes are based on traditional Russian recipes, preserving their authentic feel, but are prepared with modern techniques and ingredients. The dishes are not reinvented, but improved.The other pillar of the menu is the wide selection of marine and freshwater “Fish dishes”, and their diverse compilations. The premium quality and year-round availability of domestic fishes are guaranteed by our close cooperation with fisheries; and our carefully selected seafood is supplied by the fish market of Strasbourg.The third and most important pillar of the menu is the “Caviar Gourmet Menu”, and the Caviar Card, listing the caviars produced and distributed by the restaurant and the dishes prepared with them, thus demonstrating the versatility of the culinary utilization of caviar. The Arany Kaviár Gourmet Selection has represented and conveyed the philosophy and values of the restaurant within and outside its walls. The “Hungarian caviar” successfully debuted on the international market in 2011. On the largest and most prestigious hospitality exhibition, the SIRHA in Lyon, world-renowned chefs sampled Arany Kaviár’s product.

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.
