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

We did not eat here but enjoyed excellent service and knowledge of the wine sommelier helping us choose from an extensive wine list. Beautiful spot by the fountain. Will be back to eat.

This was the first time we got to sit on the upper floor. Magnificent wiev! The food was delicious and the service were a little bit confused, but very nice. No problems with sending out a wine that we didn't like! Wonderful Negritas! Wonderful tuna!

Popped into this restaurant after walking out of the zoo. It was very busy for a weekday lunchtime which is always a good sign. I had the burger which was great, probably the juiciest burger I’ve ever had.

Super restaurant by the lake. Food and service were of the very best. Our waiter was a very educated gentleman who knew his menu very well and recommended dishes in a very honest way. A must visit

Found the food to be ok, but the staff here are something else, some real attitude problems in this place, will not be returning especially when they have the audacity to add a service charge to the bill! A truly awful experience!
