Margareta Terrace is the uppermost terrace of the Restaurant with gorgeous panorama. We offer hot drinks in winter time and ice-cold refreshers during the summer heat, while the Danube Terrace, - which is in line with the Danube -, we offer hot and cold dishes from spring to autumn. An excellent venue with wonderful panorama of Budapest and intimate live music provides an unforgettable experience for our guests.The gastronomic style of The Halaszbastya Restaurant: innovative kitchen. We regard it as a challenge to participate in revive the most beautiful tradition of the Hungarian kitchen, and familiarize our typical flavours with our visitors. We paid especial respect to set up our wine selection highlighted Hungarian wines from reputed regions and offer prominent wines from abroad as well. Our sommeliers guide through more than 150 sort of list and recommendations help our guests to choose the best for excellent courses, their mood and gusto.

My husband and I have had many memorable meals over the past 30+ years at many wonderful restaurants. This is yet another we will never forget. The setting is idyllic, atop the Fishermans Bastion overlooking the Danube and Pest below. As the sun went down and the lights of the major buildings came on it was a magical sight. The food is excellent - that creative yet restrained touch that was certainly Hungarian in its foundation but cosmopolitan in its expression. The staff were attentive and informative, the music romantic if a bit overwhelming at times. It is hard to believe that this is a relatively new establishment - just opened for 3 years. We would recommend this restaurant for any special occasion or even if you are a visitor. Well done all round.

Apart from the outstanding views, superb location, ambience, architecture, the levels of service at this restaurant were amazing. Our Maitre 'D Bajan Tamas's attention to detail and need to satisfy his diners was really fantastic. Ofcourse, the food was also excellent.
Be careful if you are driving your own car. Get the parking ticket stamped from the restaurant, else you have to pay a huge fine beyond 1 hour car park. I paid, so I know..

This has got to be one of the best al fresco dining experience's you can have.
The food was very good, the live band was ok but the views were amazing.
The whole experience of eating al fresco on a castle was amazing.
If you are in Budapest this is a must.

Good food, good service. It is rare to enjoy these in a very touristic location. The "sommelier" was maybe not so convincing but the choice was good. I had a choice of local entrees and goose liver as main dish. Better than in a lot of places I tried in Budapest.

This restaurant is a definite "must do" in Budapest.

Brilliant atmosphere, enjoyable music, exceptional service and delicious food and wine contributed to a wonderful evening... and the views from the restaurant are truly spectacular.

However, this all comes at a price - so expect to pay in the region of £60 per person for a three course meal with wine, coffee, etc.
