We walked to the park from town. Robinsons had come recommended by friends. Service, venue, atmosphere the pace has got everything. The sommelier was excellent with some local wine suggestions and the food was excellent.

Myself, partner and adult son visited back in September. We had noticed this establishment whilst walking in the area, and it was decided that we would have a light lunch there. My son ordered a steak, and I'm quite sure it was a fine steak, but at €42 was pricey, leaving the rest of us to choose only a salad... More

After lovely interesting walk through Heroes Square and Park, we came across Robinsons. This reminded us of our trip to the restaurant in Central Park, NY in Winter. What could be nicer? We didn't feel terribly welcome. We were immediately asked if we had a booking, well no? Staff member perused an almost empty page and it felt like he... More

We were in town to celebrate a 40th birthday weekend and we chose well for the birthday meal. The stakehouse is excellent with everyone having a fantastic meal. The location is great and during the summer would be a stunning evening with outdoor dining next to the lake and fountains.

We ended up going to Robinson by mistake. I had planned to take some friends out to dinner to a different restaurant, but could not get a table, so we decided to try this restaurant instead. A great choice. The food was very good - Hungarian cuisine for those who want it and alternative choices for those who don't. The... More

Foreigners will be lured in this restaurant under the assumption it serves good food and has even had celebrities come to dine here. The truth is that this place is total rubbish and you can find much nicer places elsewhere. Food: Although the food is nicely presented, it is not that tasty and rather average, just like any Hungarian meal... More

Returning customer to this lovely restaurant with good food and beautiful view, Robinson did not disappoint. Good food, freshly prepared. Veraity of wine and drinks, a rich and varied menu and the lovely view together with the excellent service and reasonable price of the meal - made this place one of my favorite in Budapest.

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.
