The restaurant in the Fisherman's bastion is a great place, if you want to impress foreigners coming to town. The setting of the restaurant is such that in the evening people's jaw's will drop. Ask for one of the tables in the different alcoves surrounded by windows and you will have stunning views of the Danube, the Parliament, the Cathedral and Pest at large.

And then there is the interior: a castle like set-up with amazing crystal chandeliers which would make a French king envious.

The service is very good and friendly and the food is very good, with a strong Hungarian stamp, yet not as heavy.

There is also music. I prefer it when it is only the cymbals and they do not go around from table to table, but that is a matter of taste. Sundays it is the way that I like it :-)

Even if prices are relatively high, it is worth it, as this may be the restaurant with the most stunning views in Budapest

We ate at this restaurant and we took the lunch menu including a traditional Hungarian Goulash soup and a baked leg of chicken with Garlic sauce and rice for the main course and it was very excellent.
The lunch includes a soft drink and coffee. The price is very attractive (+/- 11,50€/p.p) for who wants to eat in a good restaurant with a nice view of Budapest.

I reccomend this restaurant for all tourists who walks to the surroundings.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel as having excellent food plus stunning views - they were spot on. Inside it's highly visual with chandeliers and candles everywhere with friendly and attentive waiters. We had creamy goats cheese starters followed by steak and a paparika salmon. Through the window we could see the Danube behind which was the Parliament building all lit up. Definitely go at night time as the city views are wonderful.

We ate here on Christmas Day and it couldn't be faulted. The silver service was excellent, Staff were "on the ball" and most helpful (we could still be taking to the lady in reception), food was wonderful and the ambience was special.

We had stunning views of the Danube across to the Parliament and the bill was very reasonable considering the location, service and quality of food.
