Description: Our restaurant is located in the heart of the city centre, on Vigadó Square, looking on Duna-korzó. This wonderful walking path along the Danube on the Pest side has always been a favourite meeting and walking place for people and there has always been a coffe-house or a restaurant on the site of our venue ever since the 1870's. Duna Corso restaurant is run by the same family for more than 40 years. Now it is already the third generation working here, thinking over and recreating traditional recipes. The nostalgic old and the reformed new tastes of Hungarian cuisine combined with our own gastronomic traditions determine the selection on the menu. From early spring till late autumn we welcome our guests on one of the most wonderful, panoramic terraces whereas during winter time we await them with our classic and modern rooms. In the evenings the culinary experience is completed by live music. In 2015 we added a confectionary to our restaurant. We offer freshly made cakes and homemade ice-cream every day.

“Lovely interior”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

This restaurant is near the Korso statue. Very popular. We sat outside and found it a very relaxed place with good service and decent wine. Is fairly ordinary outside with addition of some pretty flower boxes, but if you go inside, you'll be very surprised by the attractive and classy interior. Didnt eat here but it always appeared busy, so very popular by all accounts.

This, out of all honesty, the best restaurant in Budapest. We went back time and time again. Brilliant Food, Brilliant service and Brilliant atmosphere. They have the best bread and Goulash Soup. I had to go there everyday, not just for the food, but for the delicious bread. The atmosphere is lovely, very romantic. It is situated right next to the Danube river and it is dressed in a very idyllic feel. The had a trio playing beautiful music around the table of the restaurant on a Saturday, I think it was. I Highly Recommend this to everyone.

“Whole experience made us angry”
Reviewed June 8, 2013 via mobile

Decent food. Shocking service. Ignored constantly and lazy lazy lazy waiters. They all wanted to spend time clearing glasses and folding napkins whilst ignoring all the customers. Several tables around looked very frustrated at how long it took to get a drink, get your food, then the bill. We waited so long to pay the bill, I even contemplated leaving what I felt was appropriate (which wasn't very much) and walking! I feel sorry for the chefs slaving away in the heat for their food to be served by such poor staff.

“Very appetizing”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

A very elegant restaurant. The service was great. Our waiter was very knowlegeable about wine and the food. He also had a great sense of humor. The food portions were small, but it was quite sufficient for an evening meal.

“Great Budapest Meal - Outstanding Ambiance”
Reviewed June 2, 2013

So darn charming it hurts. The waitstaff looks like they walked right off of a movie screen and the strolling musicians, the food, the view - Really, could it get any better? Please do not be an impatient traveler (you know who I'm talking about, stars and stripes) and expect the service to be quick. You are on vacation, so sit back, relax and enjoy yourself on a European time schedule. It's time to learn how to kick back and let life come at you. It'll be worth it, I promise, and Dunacorso is the perfect place to spend an evening learning that skill.
