Looking for anywhere to sit and eat. Stumbled across it and sat outside. Lovely waiters. We are from western USA, so used to pretty good beef. This was one of the best hamburgers I have ever had.

Nice surroundings. A little strange serving food. But in the best possible way. We waited a little longer for the food, but it was definitely worth the wait.

We were staying in Budapest for a weekend and our best food experience was in Kanaan. The place is quite small, but oh my god, the food is amazing!

Had trepidation’s when I sat down and looked at the menu but I was extremely pleased with the results. The duck was extremely moist, juicy and tasty. The veggies in a white sauce were delicious and perfect for the duck. Great wine was available and...had a great meal. Ambiance not the greatest but service was friendly.More

We visited for the bi-annual “dining city” offer whereby a large number of restaurants offer a limited choice set menu for a low fixed price. We were highly impressed by the food - the kitchen produced 3 excellent courses, with the final one being a...chocolate soufflé that was about the best I have had. We did feel a disconnect between the amazing food and the more average service and rather non-descript decor for the restaurant. With some improvements to the latter two, these could act to complement the impressive food. Very enjoyable meal and the sort of restaurant that appears on “hidden gems” listings.More

It was two blocks away from our AIRBNB apartment in a great area of Budapest...I just found it by typing in Restaurants nearby on google maps. We just arrived without reservation..on a quiet night..Stunning food...try the Sword Fish main course ! oh and the Tartare...starter! Reasonable prices compared to the UK. Friendly staff...the waitress (who had worked in the UK and on Cruise liners ...you know who you are) was really nice to us ( English Couple 26th Feb ) and very professional...a real asset to the Restaurant ..which I believe is family owned since 1989. I would eat here again, highly recommend !More

Arrived in Budapest late on a rainy night, and Kanaan was a warm, friendly eatery. Wonderful chicken paprikash and goulash soup. Zoltan was a great server. Would go back and recommend to friends.

Ate there twice during a recent Budapest visit. Found the place via TripAdvisor. Both times the food was delicious and the service very friendly. The prices are moderate. Highly recommended.

What a total delight to be recommended this restaurant on a recent stay in Budapest. We’ve been to & fro since May filming - this has by far been our favourite. Local, friendly, atmospheric, good food, nice staff - reminded me of secret NYC bars-...thanks for a great time - see you soon.More
