The view from this place is superb (an equally excellent view from the gents toilet which is slightly unnerving) and it has a nice chilled vibe about it. There are two levels, a slightly cheaper 'cafe' on the ground floor and the more expensive restaurant...on the upper floor. The cheaper option was closed when we arrived so we were offered a seat upstairs for our drinks. We didn't opt for food as prices were very high and drinks were significantly more expensive than elsewhere. Clearly geared up for wealthy oligarchs over penny-pinching British/Hungarian families! Go for the view if you like or its a special occasion but its not for everyday.More

We’ve had our lunch in echo yesterday, and it was definitely our last time there (though we were returning guests off season). Upon arrival we asked for 2 glasses of tap water, we’ve been served a litre of filtered water. We’ve sent it back and...said we wanted tap water for a reason, we got a bottle of it, poured 2 glasses and left the rest in the bottle. We then had a decent lunch, and asked for the bill when we finished eating. We were surprised to see a bottle of filtered water on our bill that costed 2000 HUF and asked the waiter to correct it since we sent the first bottle back. He came back a couple of minutes later with the corrected bill, then came the shock - plain old tap water was even more expensive 😅 it was 2500 HUF. The bill has been corrected by hand, and as far as I know it is not the way you should correct one. When we told our waiter that it must be a joke that they charge 2500 HUF for a litre of water - again, which we didn’t ask for - he got angry, and his attitude became very rude. He said that they have a lot of work with tap water as well (😅), for example they have to clean the bottles the water comes in (😅), and we also should know, that it’s Tihany, prices are high, and a cubic meter of water is very expensive 😅 I lost it there. It’s not about the money - it’s just common sense. Hosting people and not giving them a glass of tap water when they spend money at your place is something I would never understand, but charging them this much money is just ridiculous. Food was not bad tho.More

An unexpected delight with great views. I must credit our guide Kata for selecting such a great restaurant and location. The food was exceptional and the service was beyond reproach. I enjoyed wild boar for the first time in my life. Authentic and delicious. Make...it a priority to eat here because you will not be disappointed. The bonus is the view and the quaintness of Tihany.

I visited this place a few times and I always had a good experience there but the last time wasn’t the same as earlier. One of my friend didn’t like her food and when the waiter asked what was the problem she told her complain...and she didn’t eat her meal at all however she still had to pay for it. We didn’t argue but I think it’s unfair to make someone pay for a dish that she didn’t eat. And they made us pay for 1 litre of water 2380 Huf which I think is extremely overpriced! We won’t visit this place ever again. Nice view thoughMore

Always eat here when visiting Tihany, roughly 3-4 times per summer. Never got disappointed with the food, the view or the hospitality.

As a Hungarian native speaker, overhearing the staff making comments on customers -including me- in hungarian is disrespectful. Drinks were nice, the restaurant setting is excellent. Shame for the waiter!

We ate here twice in a few days and both times the food and service was superb. On the first night we sat on the outdoor terrace with the amazing views over the lake. The second time we sat inside as it was windy, but...the view was still great. Food was very good quality and service impeccable. It is still low season, but I can imagine this place gets very busy in the Summer.More

Awesome spot with great views of the lake. Food and wine were great, and inexpensive. Staff were attentive and knowledgable. As it’s not tourist season yet, a lot of restaurants aren’t open yet. I’d saw this is one of the best in Tihany.

Top notch restaurant with heavenly views from a high ridge over the lake. Food to die for and a varied selection of cocktails including non- alcoholic ones. Staff is welcoming and professional. A must visit in Tihany!

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
