“great food, great staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

I spent a great evening at Araz with friends. Staff is attentive, the hall is very nice and the food is very good. Itt all comes at a very reasonable price, too. You can choose between Hungarian and French specialties, and they have some Budapest Jewish dishes (the restaurant is in the Jewish District, after all).
Definitely at the top of my list of upscale restaurants in Budapest.

“Not worth the price”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2014

For having visited some other places in Budapest, it appears clearly that this hotel restaurant is not the best value for money in town.
Yes it is a smart place to have an Hungarian dining experience but the meals I tasted were definitely not in accordance with the range of prices: pork fillet too dry, goulash too liquid, Jewish style cassoulet very disappointing. Besides I did not recognize the supposed French specialties in the menu. Yet I am French!!
Well, should make much better...

“Incredible Saturday menu for incedible price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014

Araz was such a surprise, the best thing that has happened to me this weekend! I mean, where can you get an incredibly delicious set three-course meal including a lemonade on Saturday for... wait for it... 1600 Fts! Besides, the service is seamless, and the environment is more than pleasant. Well, more Araz and less cooking for me on weekends! Yay!
