The food was good, the service was excellent but the setting was simply spectacular. This stunning venue is a must when visiting Budapest. Its a real time journey to opulent days gone by.

As suggested by our private tour guide, Emily, we stopped for lunch/dessert on last day of Avalon Waterways sponsored tour. We had heard of the cafe....but were near overwhelmed by its ambiance and beauty....unbelievable! Lobby of adjacent 5-star Boscolo Hotel is directly accessible from the restaurant.
We were promptly seated and had near-immediate waiter assistance, though this may have been faciliated by Emily's presence, who seemed to know one or more staff at nearly every stop we made during the day. I had goulash which was good. My wife had pasta with light sauce and basil (she felt it was lacking in basil, which we both dearly love).
We planned dessert.....however the above proved filling, so we settled with viewing the dessert menu (photos of a page of dessert menu and other photos are attached to this review).
This cafe demands a visit by anyone based on its visual beauty alone. We readily recommend to any person visiting Budapest.

We were going to stop and have a coffee in the Cafe but we stood by the entrance for a good 10 minutes while waiters kept glancing towards us and ignoring us, so we just went in and saw it and took pictures, and they just kept ignoring us. So I wouldn't go there to eat but I would go to see the place. It is stunning!

Absolutely wonderful coffee and cakes to die for. The interior of the Cafe is sumptuous and the service A-one.

Incredible meals and incredible service. We ate here many times during our stay at the Boscolo. While we were at Onyx we heard a patron asking the waiter who had the best cake in Budapest, the waiter told him the NY palace had his favorite. This was by far the most beautiful restaurant we have had the chance to enjoy.
