Description: The restaurant of Attila Molnár and Szása Nyíri is waiting for their guests for more than 20 years already.Arany Kaviár is considered one of the best fine dining restaurants. They improve Russian cuisine. They prepare traditional dishes with contemporary methods, the way we like them.For five years the restaurant is recommended by the Michelin guide.Accordingly, one of the cornerstones of the menu is the “Traditional Russian cuisine”, the true and worthy representatives of the classic cuisine of the court of the Czars. The dishes are based on traditional Russian recipes, preserving their authentic feel, but are prepared with modern techniques and ingredients. The dishes are not reinvented, but improved.The other pillar of the menu is the wide selection of marine and freshwater “Fish dishes”, and their diverse compilations. The premium quality and year-round availability of domestic fishes are guaranteed by our close cooperation with fisheries; and our carefully selected seafood is supplied by the fish market of Strasbourg.The third and most important pillar of the menu is the “Caviar Gourmet Menu”, and the Caviar Card, listing the caviars produced and distributed by the restaurant and the dishes prepared with them, thus demonstrating the versatility of the culinary utilization of caviar. The Arany Kaviár Gourmet Selection has represented and conveyed the philosophy and values of the restaurant within and outside its walls. The “Hungarian caviar” successfully debuted on the international market in 2011. On the largest and most prestigious hospitality exhibition, the SIRHA in Lyon, world-renowned chefs sampled Arany Kaviár’s product.

Reviewed July 23, 2012

We had a wonderful evening in the Arany Kaviár Restaurant. We got a table in the garden, which was amazing. I had the Fish Menu, which was a good choice! They have very good wine selection and they recommended us a cranberry flavoured vodka as well. Friendly staff, good food, beautiful atmosphere!

“A good recommendation”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

We had a wonderful dinner in this restaurant. The concierge of the hotel booked us a table and now it’s clear that it was a great decision to take his recommendation! We had a table in the garden, which was truly amazing. We ordered a fish menu, which turned out to be a great choice, especially with the wine recommendations of the sommelier. All the courses were perfectly prepared, and the service was very attentive as well. It was one of the highlight of our trip!

“One word: Fantastic!”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

I recently had an amazing evening at Arany Kaviár with my friends! We were seated in the garden, in a wonderful ambience, if you have the chance, ask for a table there! I ordered the caviar gourmet menu with the matching wines, and it worth every forints spent on it. All the dishes were just perfect from the welcoming bits till the desserts, so as the wines recommended by the sommelier. The attentive service from the waiters made the dinner even more perfect. I'm pretty sure, that I'm going to return in the near future!

“Reserve a table at the garden!”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

I am really lucky as i have been at this restaurant few times before. But last week i had the best experience ever: we had a table at the garden, which has such a romantic atmosphere! It is quiet, simple and elegant, just perfect.
We have tried their Fish Menu, i would like to highlight the grilled fish with asparagus and spinach, and as i am a big fan of desserts, my personal favourite was the Citrus textures.
The service was outstanding, food excellent, ambiente is lovely. Highly recommended!
