This event were pre-booked and we arrived to a fantastic decorated table. Perfect 3-course dinner with selected accompaning wine - all great and tasteful. Enjoyable atmosphere with wonderful music and service minded staff. This level of dining is not easy to find. Thank you so much, you made our anniversary dinner unforgettable.

This place was highly recommended, Im glad we went. Amazing food, great atmosphere, music and excellent service! If you want a good traditional Hungarian food, which is so not touristy, this is the place to go! Value for money, perfect set menu options, and nice veggie dish. Lovely wines and we were very well looked after. The violist and pianist... More

So this is really enjoyable relaxed dining. The restaurant is a little like the converted front room of a large house. Lots of colourful antiques, plants, paintings etc... all very relaxed and comfortable. Service was absolutely spot on and we were thoroughly looked after, a lovely family feel. The best part was the live music accompanying the food. A piano... More

Walking through Buda I found this restaurant. You can order three course dinner with wine or off the regular menu. Food was a tad salty but not so as to ruin the experience. Great Eastern European dining where locals mingle with tourists.

Terrific place for local Hungarian food - live music (violin and piano) - just about everything in there seems to be for sale

A "must do" experience. Traditional Hungarian menu with live music (piano & violin) in a room that looks & feels like you have entered your grandmother's place...a bit kitsch but fun. And then the food...very good, especially the amazing Duck. This you must choose, as there are not that many places, in Budapest or other cities, where you will have... More

I had diner at Kacsa on April 30 with some of my friends. I was a returning guest. We opted for the full menu with assorted glasses of wines. Starter, main dish and desserts were nonetheless fine and good but also generous. Service was simply perfect. And as usual we could enjoy live classical music. Kacsa is one of these... More

I wanted to show to my boyfriend a traditional hungarian restaurant and this one highly recommended from us after spending a lovely evening there. The atmosphere is great with amazing music. The service and the quality of the food is perfect. Nothing to complain about. :))

Our Mother's Day dinner was absolutely fantastic. The three course daily choices and included wine pairings made decisions simple as we do not know Hungarian but all the staff spoke very good English.Our party of three sampled the pork medallions, duck and the pike perch. All were delicious. The most fascinating part is the selzser water from a pressurized glass... More

The 'Kacsa' (Duck) Restaurant is situated in Buda in the heart of Vizivaros spreading at the feet of Castle Hill on the corner of Fo and Kacsa streets. Vizivaros (Watertown) ows its name to being part of the strategic waterways in the Roman times with its vivid harbour and bustling commerce.It still preserves the atmosphere of the old times with narrow alleyways in many places. The restaurant having been in operation for more than fifty years is established in one of these tarnished buildings. In 1987 it was the first restaurant in private ownership in Budapest.

We offer typical Hungarian dishes beside the main specialities of the restaurant,the famous duck meals,which are served with an excellent selection of wine exclusively originating from Hungarian wine-cellars.
70 Different courses can be found on the menu from cold starters to desserts,among which 9 are duck specialities. Live gipsy music provides a memorable experience every night together with the intimacy of the dinner.
The kind and friendly staff, the beautiful cover,live music and the elegant setting create a splendid atmosphere for consuming a family, a romantic or a business dinner as well as a meal with your friends.
Visit our restaurant and make sure in person that it is not by chance that this restaurant is listed to be as one of the best of Fine Dining Restaurants.
