Review of ZONA Budapest

Restaurant details
Dining options: Breakfast, Late Night, Dinner, Lunch, Reservations
Neighborhood: District I / Buda
Description: Every tiny detail of the renewed ZONA is inspired by our trips to global cities. The cuisine is influenced by their diversity, the respect for their cultural heritage and the current gastronomic trends. Exciting flavors, blustering colors unite in a unique location by the Buda side of Chain Brindge, but almost in the downtown. We add an honest, accomodating but professional table service to make your stay a unique experience, so we could show what guest and restaurant relation really means to us. ZONA got 17 Gault Millau points in the past two years (3 hats) and received Dining Guide's Restaurant of the Year award last year.

Perfection in art and in thing pleasing my senses touches me deeply. The chef of Zona is a true artist and hedonists like myself will surely have an intimate sensetaion of perfectiontasting these dishes. They are very creative and the chef has brilliant ideas. Everything is very simple in a good sense. Marvellous balance of just a few ingredients, true harmony and every dish has a little "plus", a playful idea. All this skilfully prepared and served. The level of the service is excellent. The staff is professional, polite and kind. The atmosphere is friendly, one will not feel uncomfortable, and can dress casual. The decoration is pleasing and the view is gorgeous on the Chain bridge, the Danube and the Pest side. The wines are excellent, although we all arrived by car and could taste only one of them. I recommend Bortársaság next door: an excellent and very professional wine shop with a very knowledgeable staff.

Zona Restaurant is located on the side of the Danube, great view to Pest. Dishes are perfectly prepared and served. Basically brings the Michelin star level. It is worth to visit before they are reach the first star, afterwards prices will be rising to different level. Lunch is 15 Euros for 23 courses, 5 courses diner is 35 Euros.

We were in Budapest for a few days in September. Zona was a few doors away from our hotel, Lanchid 19. We had passed it every day commenting on how nice it looked then on our way back to the hotel one evening stopped for some excellent Hungarian wine. The following day we had lunch here. It was delicious. The staff are very efficient and friendly and the atmosphere is calm, modern and welciming.

Brilliant gourmet restaurant. It's one of the best in Budapest - if you take price into consideration then clearly the best one. Go and eat there before they get their michlein star and double their prizes.

The design of the location and the service is bisto style so noone minds if leave your tie home. The staff is regardful well-trained and friendly. But of course the strength of this restaurant is the food what isn't just very tasty but interesting and creative as well. I was lucky to visit Zona several times for business launches but yesterday was the first time I got a dinner there with my family. We ordered the tasting menu and liked all the five courses. They can offer a different glass of wine from open bottles for every single plate and their wine selection was very good. It would be pointless to describe what have we eaten there and what do we suggest to other people since they change their menu on a daily/weekely bases. So what we suggest is go a try it!
