Callas is next door to the Opera and is a beautiful Art Deco cafe. It looks pricey but it's not!

The cakes were gorgeous and the waiters excellent and professional. Go there!

Positioned right next to the Opera it's a beautiful restaurant with a great selection of food.
Recommended by our hotel we booked a table for 8 and it was surprisingly empty until after 9. However they had live music - a band with opera singer which was very nice.
Me and my friend had the traditional hungarian dishes (but there were a lot of other on offer) - beef fillet budapest style and duck leg and are both superb.
The dessert was great too! We had french chocolate cake and crumble. The price is very reasonable for a restaurant with such a posh decor and I would high recommend it!

Went here during a short city break. Recommended by our concierge at the hotel and didn't disappoint. Food and drinks were brilliant, I had the tapas plate and my girlfriend had goats cheese both were lovely, I would highly recommend the Angus fillet but my girlfriend had the fillet Budapest style and she would say the same about hers. The evening we were there had live music which was lovely, would have been nicer if they spent more time playing as they'd play a few songs and then sit at the bar for 20 minutes but all in all a highly recommended place to go. People have made a few comments about price, yes it is expensive for Budapest if you had the same experience in London would pay much more. For 2 cocktails, 1 bottle of wine, 2 starts, 2 mains and 1 dessert inclusive of service was about £110.

We walked past the Callas the day before and peaked inside, the waiters were so friendly and helpful and as we loved the ambiance of the restaruant decided to book for the 6 of us on the Saturday evening, we were not dissapointed, the service was brilliant, food excellent, we chose Hungarian dishes, they were delicious, we all loved our food and only had food envy becaused we would have loved to have tried each others plates too. The string quartet and pianest were a wonderful addition to the evening, picking up on the type of diners eating during the evening played the old favorites which ended up with everyone getting dancing and singing along, Speaking to our waiter he said it depended on the diners how the evening evolved. This eveing for us was one for a memory book, could not fault it, prices were probably a little higher than some restaurants in Budapest, but still very very good compared to the quality, service and atmosphere you would pay for in London, average main course price was around £10-13.
