The location in beautiful, sitting at the sun under that amazing old tree is unique. Considering that it is only 45 minutes by car from Budapest, in my opinion this place is always a very valid reason to go for a short trip to Tata....Absolutely worth the trip. I chose the Tafelspitz, and it was served perfectly, probably when I was in Austria I have never eaten such a good one: very good and intense broth, and the beef tender and not dry at all. The sauces very nice and balanced. Artisanal bread for the bone marrow. My wife had the breaded and fried mangalica (karaj), extraordinary. Very juicy, cooked to perfection, crunchy and light, any trace of grease. The desserts just marvellous, between the best you can find in the whole country, even in Budapest you will find few of this level. One of the few mille-feuille worthy of the name here in Hungary, buttery and perfectly crunchy, not wet at all. Their version of baba is also very good. Good coffee. Polite and professional service. Absolutely recommended.More

My husband and I were celebrating our one year wedding anniversary here. Everything about this place is excellent! While we were sitting under the shade of the huge platan tree, enjoying the chef's masterpieces, we also had stunning view on the lake. It is admirable...how someone can create the perfect symphony of flavour and vision in one plate. People who work there are very polite and professional. The cherry on top is the lounge music accompanied by live guitar. We are very grateful for the remarkable experience!More

Located approx 1 hour from center of Budapest in a fairly small village this restaurant delivers surprisingly sophisticated food, service and overall experience. The setting is nice as well, on a small lake, castle and park-like area. It's also adjacent to a boutique hotel. Food...is 'modern fine dining' style and combines Hungarian and international ingredients for some creative combinations that generally work. Extremely reasonably priced for the quality and service is great as well! It's quite popular and not that many tables so you need to book in advance no matter what time/day (we tried 3 or 4 times before actually getting in!). Definitely worth it for an easy day-trip from Budapest or between BP and Vienna as it's not far of the highway!More

The dinner as well as the wine recommendations were just perfect. Also the service staff was really helpful with our choices. We really loved, that they gave us a table with extra space for our dog. Although it is (rightfully) a bit pricey we will...definitely come again!More

If you want to try the modern Hungarian Cuisine with a lot of art, new taste, you must visit Platan. The best experience for all my life. Excellent service! Happy New Year 2020!

Visited the place after a friendly recommendation. The place was full but the waiter Cava (the gray one) managed to us a lovely place next to the lake. Wanted to eat something quick but the waiter advised to us full menu with some wine. Will...return for sure.More

We love it a lot this cosy place. We ate there twice, first day we take dinner and next day we ate at lunch. Both times was everything perfect. We tried different dishes, and all was very nice and good. Staff are also very friendly...!More

If you ever find yourself in the area, you have to go check out Platan. We tried almost everything on the menu and everything was extremely tasty. They serve two types oh home-made beer, which are pretty good. Try some of the local wines, tasty...as well. Last but not least, if it’s warm, ask to be seated outside, the view is amazing.More

Ate lunch at the restaurant. We asked to be seated inside but we're told the AC was not working. Seated outside under the tree had to ask to be moved when the sun got too much and with smokers around us. Soup starters were good...although the potatoes in the gulyas somewhat crunchy/hard. Main courses used some fancy techniques but were not particularly special although better than usual restaurant fare. One had a sizeable portion, the other a very small portion. When we asked for desserts we were told we had to go and look at them inside. Too much effort required but they had no problem giving us the ice cream menu. Unless you are someone who likes marketing hype and large servings I would advise against the ice cream. Too much sweetness and cream after the meal really spoilt the earlier courses. Friendly service. Good food although overpriced for what it is (to me as someone who is hardly a gourmand). If I went again I'd just get a starter and be happy.More
