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.

“Always extraordinary quality”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

We are always love to visit Arany Kaviár. We start loving russian meals, after a visit in Moscow.
Here we always got great service, and excellent foods.
Every time when we visit the restaurant, we can forget everything outside, and we can concentrate on the experience which the foods and beverages gives to us.
If someone like vodka, here always will good choices.
I could recommend to everyone who visit Budapest.

“Best of the Best”
Reviewed November 18, 2013

Undoubtedly one of the best restaurants in Budapest and the chef competes with the best found anywhere in Europe. Located just outside the castle perimeter on the Buda side this is a cosy restaurant with outstanding service and modern cooking, but not to the extent that you don't know what you are eating!
You don't have to like caviar to enjoy a meal here (my wife had a rack of lamb which she said was 'out of this world'), but if caviar is your thing then the set gastronomic caviar lunch menu for €40, 5 courses, is the best value I have ever experienced. Mention must be made of Nora, the extremely knowledgeable sommelier who selected for us an extraodinary Russian vodka and a delicious Hungarian white wine. Hungary is fortunate to be one of the best wine producing countries and one of the few that can successfully cultivate just about every grape variety, so you can taste a great wine at an affordable price.
Michelin inspectors please take note-why it doesn't have at least 2 stars is puzzling.

“Best russian restaurant in Budapest”
Reviewed November 16, 2013

I've been frequently going to Arany Kaviár with my husband for the past 12 years Sometimes, also with friends.. The quality is standard if not better and better! Pleasant ambience, excellent food and deserts. Good vodka and wine, and their smoky tasting tea with jam is really something uniqe! The stuff is professional.
I can highly recommend this restaurant to caviar and fish lovers, but their other dishes are wonderful too.
