The food was beautiful. I had the chef special watermelon with feta cheese to start and the veal paprika stew with baked curd pasta (reminds me of a deconstructed lasagna but I don't want to reduce it to such a basic dish because it tasted amazing) My partner had the orange salmon to start and roast pork with gypsy style...

The restaurant is expensive as you would expect from the location - right next to the Opera. But although it tends to attract mostly tourists, the food is actually delicious. Their Budapest Fillet was one of the best meals that I had during my stay in this amazing city.

This classic art deco restaurant is directly across the street from the Opera House. We went there for desserts and drinks and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The servers were efficient and not unfriendly, and the desserts were great, but it was the architecture that stole the show. What an amazing building! We felt as if we had been transported back in...

We stopped by this cafe for dessert and capuccino. The waiter brought the cake we ordered from a display in the window. I thought it would be old and stale. It was phenomenal. Something with dates and chocolate and I can't remember what else but it was fresh and fabulous. The cafe itself is extraordinarily beautiful and this is a... More

Quality of service was unacceptable. Asked for a certain type of receipt, the waiter brought another. Which could have happened, everyone makes mistakes. But then started to blame us for the issue, Repeatedly. Not going back ever

Very good food with a wonderful location. The staff up sells well, sometimes you feel it a bit too much, but they are pushing things that are Hungarian and proud of , which makes the experience richer. Great start to Budapest!

We sat outside at this restaurant located across from the Opera House and it was delightful. Our waiter was very good.The food was good albeit a little pricey, but all in all definitely worth it.

Saw the restaurant a couple of days before I went and thought it looks nice, my friends left early and I was alone the last night and decided to try it and happy that I did. The staff are real friendly and speaking good English, they have live music, a band playing classic music which is great while you are... More

Decent coffee, tasty deserts but the service was terrible. The place was almost empty but the waiters were bored and snobbish in an inexplicable way. Maybe because we messed with their evening nap

As we were in the area of the opera we stopped there for lunch. Although it is more expensive than an average cafè, considering the location and attentive service i feel the prices are reasonable. We had the hungarian tapas which were good and the opera cake, very good. I think this place is better for a romantic dinner but... More
