This restaurant transforms itself from organised chaos during the morning breakfast time, when tens of people potter around the buffet, to a lovely and chic environment at night. We had ravioli with truffle oil and the mushroom risotto - both very tasty. The menu has a good choice of dishes, in French, Hungarian and traditional Jewish styles, so there was a lot to choose from. I can see that many reviewers seem to like the homemade lemonade, but I must say that it was not for me - tasted like sparkling water with a slice of lemon thrown in. If in Budapest, I would go back.

Dear Guest,
Thank you for being our guests. Yes, the atmosphere during breakfast and dinner is really different. I am delighted to read that you enjoyed the Araz atmosphere in the evening and the flavours of our dishes. I am very sorry to hear that our home made lemonade didn't meet your expectations and was not at your taste.

We are looking forward to your next visit.

Best regards,

I think this restaurant was one of my best choice in my life. We spent here a
beautiful evening. The milieu was perfect. We got a very nice and elegant table.
The waiter was nice and helpful. He answered all our questions about the food
kindly. Choice for vegetarian way great and also very tasty. Wine list is good
you can find great wines in it. Music was also chic and it made our evening
unforgettable.

I can recommend their set menus - three courses for 1590 forint. Surprisingly cheap for such a luxorious environment. Service was ok and the lemonade very good. I had a vegetarian two course-meal. You get a vegetarian course and the soup of the day, so do make sure that the soup is also vegetarian. Ask the waiter, if it's not clear what the soup is.

There is not a lot to choose from the menu, but the food they do serve is delicious. Be aware of the 10 % service charge. Our vaitor tried to convince me to eat a sallad, even though I said I wanted something else. The strawberry lemonade looked great, but had a lack in taste. I was suprised about the table decoration, the free apetisers and the short waiting time.

Thank Theos007

Dear Theos007,

Thank you for your review. Pleased to hear that you were satisfied with our food and you loved our table decoration. It is good to hear that the free appetisers were for you a surprise too. I am sure that our waiter just wanted to help you and he just offered you one of our most delicious salads we are very proud of. We are sorry, if he seemed to be too pushy. Our home made lemonade is also very popular among our guests, so I am sorry that it did not meet your expectations. Despite of the aboves I do hope you’ll choose our Araz Restaurant next time again.
Best regards,

Had dinner recently - was not too busy, mostly with hotel guests. This is a ptiy becauase the standard of the food and service was excellent. A fine, elegant but not stuffy atmosphere, adn chef is really trying to be innovative but not extravagantly so. All food was of high quality material, well prepared and served. Wine list v. good. They give a whooping 50% discount on drinks if booked from your room - given that restaurants in Budapest seem to work with outrageous mark-ups on drinks (inc. bottled water), this can save a fair amount on your dinner bill. warmly recommended.
