“Top notch - probably best restaurant of an 11 day stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2010

Our family agreed it was the best meal of the 11 or so days we had spent in Budapest. The meal was excellent, and the service extremely attentive. It was a very relaxed pleasant space and environment. We were there in June and it was covered but open air (open walls). Also outside dining but it was raining that night. Seems very popular with local residents - we may have been the only tourists there that night. The menu is extensive and has good variety, even of fish - it seems unusual in Budapest to see a good variety of fish on the menu. I had the red mullet which was perfect. You can check out the menu online and it does have English translations. http://www.mannalounge.com/gastro.d2 The restaurant is located on the back side (not facing the river) of Castle Hill in Buda, below the top of the hill. You can take stairs down from near the "Hospital on the Rock" attraction, but if you're not taking a taxi there, be sure to get someone to mark it well on the map for you.
The area is leafy green residential.

“Tucked away and fabulous!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2010

My wife and literally walked past this reataurant without knowing - it is hidden from plain sight, but once inside, it definately gets your attention.
It appears as something of a tapas/ cocktail lounge, but the quality of the menu testifies that it has the heart of a restaurant.
We sampled a few treats - all of which were terrific, tasty, creative and showed that the team making it, were talented and passionate. I pinched one of their ideas for entree accompaniment which has impressed every time.
It would be hard to compliment this place enough. If you can, go with friends and plan a good few hours there, so you can progress from cocktails to dinner, then relax in the lounge areas.
It has a fabulous view too - which we had all to ourselves. It wasn't the cheapest of options, but you can easily see where the expense goes to.
