Fantastic view from the terrace Don’t let the fancy descriptions on the menu fool you. It’s average if not less. Orders arrive via the elevator Maybe the ride is too long but it definitely doesn’t arrive fresh and sizzling. Cocktail choice is limited For a...place like this at least they should have a decent Bloody Mary. I must say, the duck liver was nicely done and presented but the rest of the meal was just blahhh … Go for a glass of wine and enjoy the view but dinner is not worth investing.More

Excellent food, very big dishes. Very polite and fast service. We took Gulash soup that was very good along with a steak that was perfect. And of course the view 😃

We were in Hungary for a week and the food at Echo was one of the best meals we had. The staff were very friendly and the view is great. We had strawberry soup and grilled duck livers which were both excellent as the Wiener...Schnitzel which was huge and delicious. Highly recommended.More

Great view, horrible staff and service. When you call them to make a reservation in English. There is a woman on the phone who is very rude and doesn’t want to serve English speaking customers. Hanging up the phone constantly, while asking for a English...speaking collegue. But “no” was all she said and hang up the phone. While a day earlier there were plenty of English speaking collegues. Later we ask an Hungarian guy to make a reservation, but than she wouldn’t pick up the phone anymore. But when I called with another number she did pick up. Such a shame for this restaurant.More

The food was delicious and the view is really amazing. But, there is room for improvement regarding the service, waiters/waitresses could be more professional and we had to wait more than 20 minutes for the bill.

To be located a beautiful place with awesome view facing the Lake Balaton. Menu list is perfect including fresh fruits and vegetables are in the season. Servicing kind and fast. Some title are overpriced eg. bottle water 2 euros however it come from the tap...so without any essential mineral.More

This restaurant has definitely the best view to Lake Balaton. The quality of the food and the service was very good. Minor disadvantages were the small portions of the food and the relatively high prices.

We've visited this restaurant in August with family. We didn't book a table and even though it was peak time and lunch time we've been seated fairly quickly. The waiter was very nice, was really looking after us. As per my experience in other, busy...restaurants, we always had to wait quiet long for our drinks and we've always finished our drinks by the time we received our starters, but not in this restaurant, serving was pretty fast even though all the tables were busy. The food was also delicious and the view is spectacular! Our overall experience was very good, will definitely return.More

The food is delicous, but the portions simply do not justify the price-tag. My friend had the vegetarian lasgna and she went home hungry!
