Discovered this restaurant one lunchtime but had already eaten so booked for the evening when we got back to the hotel (Corinthia) . When the taxi arrived they met us on the pavement by name and welcomed us in ! Service was superb and the food excellent - I had the best wiener schitznel I've ever had accompanied by a gorgeous rose wine. Sat outside as the weather was lovely but each chair had a lovely wrap on the back if you were cold. Loved this restaurant nd would go back any time.

We were lucky enough to walk by 21 and give it a try. The food, presentation and wine were all high quality and worth the money. Service was also top notch. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and lovely outdoor area if the weather cooperates. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Budapest.

You wouldn't expect a modern restaurant in an old-fashioned place like Budapest castle, in Fortuna ut. Yet, 21 restaurant - or as it is also called: Hungarian Kitchen - is one of those places where they try to get away from the standard gulyas and what have you. On a recent visit they offered as a menu of the day: deercarapaccio with gooseliver, piglet with pumpkinrisotto and a creme brulee of cream of sweet paprika with a sorbet of basil. Cost arount 8000 forint, including a glass (two dl) of local wine.
The starter consisted of five very thin sliced pieces of deermeat, covered with a circle of gooseliver mousse. The desert combination was a surprise, but in fact quite tasty. Best of all: they didn't even suggest the most expensive Tokaj on the list, as a desertdrink, but came up with the cheapest, a late harvest, although still around five euro for 5 cl!
The family who runs this place also owns the top of the list (Cafe) Pierrot opposite and the cheaper Pest-Buda Bistro just down Fortuna Ut.

Excellent food & service. Very good wine list. We were staying just up the street at the Budapest Hilton & went here for a mid-evening (9:00PM) dinner on their terrace.

A nasty,rainy day called for warm soup...preferably goulash for lunch. This place hit the right note with food and service. Soup in a pot for two..how cute,and yummy!
