“Overpriced but above average”
Reviewed November 1, 2012 via mobile

Nice classy setting by Jewish Synagogue area. Untraditional pasta dishes with interesting combinations and very fresh products. Reason I am rating it average is that we tried to make simple modifications to some dishes but due to lack of English or other non Hungarian language these dishes fell short of our expectations. Also they serve no housewine so good luck with the unknown Hungarian wine lis.

“1st class restaurant”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

The restaurant was mentioned as one of the top 10 restaurants in Budapest in 2011. We went there without reservation and got a table without problems. The restaurant is located off the normal tourist spot but appears to be quite popular among locals. There was a large group of people sitting in the table next to us. I noticed that every dish served in that table looked very well prepared. I had the seabass which was grilled very well but I expected a bit more flavor. Both my girlfriend and I had dental treatments so we could not really fully enjoy the food anyway.

The restaurant was trying very hard to make customers feel comfortable. Will definitely go back again.

“Sublime food.”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

A friend suggested Fausto's to us and it proved to be a wonderful restaurant. The staff were very polite, friendly and efficient and the food was sublime.
I had the duck breast with cabbage and riccotta lasagne and the flavours went perfectly together.
If we go to Budapest again Fausto's would be the first place we would eat at.
Not cheap, but not expensive. Wonderful for a special evening.

“Excellent wine and food pairings”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

All the food was cooked perfectly. We tried the chefs "surprise menu" with matching wines. The waiter was very well informed about all the wines. Had a great night here!
