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.

This is a lovely and elegant restaurant, based on seafood with a special caviar menu. If one does not opt for extra caviar it is a fairly modestly priced dining experience considering the elegance of the surroundings, the variety of courses and level of service. The food is delicious without being inventive or avant guard. I would recommend this restaurant for seafood lovers wishing to experience regional cuisine.

We had lunch in the garden of Arany kaviár in late June 2014. The five course Kaviiar Menu was delicous. There was a nice twist of black/red (salmon) kaviar in each portion. The Chardonnay from Egri was one of the best we had during our visit to Budapest. The price was a nice surprise: 43000 HUF (140 €) for 2 prs. with French Champagne and lokal quality wines. Special thanks to David, who took care of the serving. Top professional!

The food, the presentation, the service, the staff, and the formal, yet informal setting truly made Arany Kaviar such a wonderful place to have a Hungarian-Russian dinner. The backyard patio is pleasant. It truly was an unbelievable eating wonder. The staff is wonderful! The food is too!!!

I do not mean to offend, but the chef tends to put excessive emphasis on the presentation of the plate than the flavor of the dish. When it comes to excellent cooking, priority order should be: first cooking and then presentation! To my disappointment, this restaurant takes the opposite philosophy. The menu price has no justification.

We have been to the Arany Kaviar five times now and have never been disappointed ones. The food presentation and the taste of every single dish is always excellent. The service is always nice and attentive. We would especially recommend the lunch menus as the they have by far the best value we've ever experienced. We'll definitely be back.
