The word "larus" means "seagull" in Latin and the restaurant took this name because it is where the Sirály utca (Seagull St.) used to be. They cook well at Larus, the braised beef that I had was excellent, but - a truly major but - the noise level was intolerable. There was a large party nearby, fair enough, but the two loudspeakers above us bellowed out some unspeakably ugly music and, despite my asking several times, the staff was quite unable or unwilling to switch them off. We fled as soon as we could. Still, there is an attractive terrace, so maybe Larus should be treated as a summer place only, unless and until they eliminate the noise. Why do restaurants think that they are made more agreeable by broadcasting music anyway?

The setting is really nice and the service is very professional and friendly.However I was not excited by the food. Maybe I made the wrong choice ordering Wiener Schnitzel with potatoes but I am sorry to say it was very average.

Wide choice of food with hungarian specialities, but here you can forget the common "turist menus" served in many places in the town. Here you can find international and traditional dishes sometimes in new forms, like "cottage-cheese pasta illusion" which is amazing dish where the pasta is changed for lettuce leaves. Try it wont regret. The flavours of foods are in harmony with proposed Hungarian wines. The chef, Buday closly monitor what his staff is doing so the quality and service is on high level.

Love this place. If you find yourself in Budapest, this is a must try restaurant. If you live in Budapest, why aren't you here now? I don't take the time to rate a lot of restaurants, but I felt Larus was really great and deserved my comments.
