Robinson is an exciting restaurant by the lake in the city park. Here you will find some of the Hungarian classics, mixed with an amazing selection of grilled meats. The atmosphere is always good, and it's usually buzzing with people, both for lunch and dinner. The staff is very nice, and they have an excellent sommelier that will show you... More

This a very good restaurant near Hosok tere in an area of the city where there aren't too many dining options within walking distance (Gundel, Bagolyvar and La Perle Noire are stories for another day). It has a nice ambience (you can dine on the deck by the boating lake in fair weather), professional and personable service, and the food... More

It looked good, the staff were terrific and the location was great. However, If we were totally honest, it was at best average. The most disappointing aspect was that duck with pasta came with what appeared to be dry if not hard pasta: it had been left out too long and had dried out and was inedible. That could be... More

While this restaurant is located near Heroes Square and the zoo, it is not a tourist trap. The food is superb! I enjoyed one of the best steaks and the wine was excellent (not always the case when by the glass). It has a modern exterior but warm and inviting interior. It overlooks the lake and city park for even... More

I have hijacked my husbands account to write this review. We went here on New Year's Day and what a fab place. Staff accommodating, restaurant amazing but the best part of all, the beetroot, duck and goats cheese risotto. I can't stop thinking about it. Flavours worked beautifully together. This restaurant is so worth a visit. Everyone's food got raving... More

Came here on our last night in Budapest and am so pleased we did. Menu, although not extensive in terms of affordable dishes was very good and the Food that we had was beautiful. Couldn't fault the service, very attentive and friendly and didn't at any point feel rushed or ignored. Amazing views and an all round fantastic visit!

Evening meal on our first night in Budapest as recommended by Hotel. The restaurant is in a lovely location and very nicely designed. Staff were friendly and attentive however we did not enjoy the Hungarian menu. The food quality was not in our opinion as good as nearby restaurants and double the price.

I have already been twice to this restaurant. Both the service and the food are great. I love their interiour design. It's not the cheapest place in Budapest, but you get quality for your money. Nothing else to say :)

Description
Robinson restaurant opened in 1989 on the small island of gastronomy at Varosligeti Lake, a few minutes on foot from Heroes' Square (Hosok tere).

Over the past decades it earned popularity among the citizens of the capital as well as the expatriate community of Budapest.

Numerous great celebrities - Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Robert Redford, David Copperfield and Larry Hagman to name but a few - have tasted the delicacies prepared in the kitchen of the Robinson.

The environment of the restaurant is no less hospitable. The Museum of Fine Arts, the Budapest Zoological and Botanical Gardens, the Amusement Park of Budapest, the Great Circus and several other landmarks are located in Varosliget.

Mediterranean environment, homely atmosphere, live Latin guitar music and an excellent kitchen guarantee a memorable evening spent here.
