“Wonderful!”
Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

We tried this restaurant on our last night in budapest, and it turned out to be a fantastic choice! We really recommend it. The atmosphere was intimate, with nice guitar live music, and the staff was really kind and polite. The food was simply excellent (try the roasted lamb, it 's paradisiac!).actually a bit expensive, but definitely worthy.

“Best in Budapest”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Probably one of the nicest meals yet in Europe and definitely the best in Budapest. Traditional Hungarian with award winning culinary edge. First the wait staff truly gets the art of service...formal yet very personable. Elegant, classical yet comfortable with live music. Sommelier was very helpful and large selection by the glass. Food was the best and presented like it was art. No surprise it keeps appearing on Michelin list. If in Budapest and you want a special memorable meal then you need to go to Alabardos. After dinner walk to the wall and enjoy the city lights.

“Wonderful evening”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

We had a really fabulous evening here - gorgeous crockery and glassware, attentive, warm, but not cloying service, a truly outstanding meal, (we all chose the four course tasting menu, and there was no problem about one person swapping out a dish that she didn't care for), lovely choice of very reasonably priced Hungarian wines...... This was fine dining at its best, and I would most heartily recommend it. (The ONLY small criticism was the coffee was made with UHT milk.)
