Service impeccable but not intrusive, environment elegant --modern with comfortable chairs; table placement perfect for space-- good acoustics-- thoughtfully placed lighting... wise use of space and color throughout--many shades of warm and inclusive. Food presentation poetic -- but without the extra "overdone" plate feeling ( i.e. don't need parsley braided to highlight the meal). Many creative blends of surprise spices, utilizing fennel, ginger, mango and more -- but subtle!!! My carnivore husband of 35 years and myself ( plant-based vegetarian) were only disappointed that this was our last night in Budapest and we could not work our way through more selections on the menu. We will return to Budapest for this restaurant. We had not read a review -- were walking back from the Great Synagogue in Budapest -- and reading menus-- Fausto's was astounding --- Asked for dinner reservations and were told that the entire restaurant was booked for an event this evening... BUT if we wanted to come back before event they would be happy to serve us dinner from either ( or both) of their menu's. We did. NOTE TO TRAVELERS: There is a restaurant with a similar name so when we returned the taxi driver delivered us miles away. Ask to go to the Great Synagogue ( largest in Europe) which everyone knows-- can always draw a Star of David if you get stuck -- Fausto's is about ten meters on the opposite side of the street.
NOTE To Fausto's: Your patrons , now forlorn, living in other continents would purchase a cookbook -- or even purchase a recipe on line... Congratulations to all of the staff at Fausto's!!! -- only a true team of people who care about each other and work together could make food this wonderful!!!!! Dishwashers to Chef's all of you with gratitude --- Naya Arbiter and Rod Mullen
