An amazing restaurant within the Hilton hotel in Buda. It's a lovely environment with fantastic view oft the city. Lazelo Tolin looked after us, no request was too much trouble. Fresh ravioli starter fantastic, beef steak was fillet cooked perfectly, even the ice cream in a bowl wD served creatively. Best vodka martinis a great night. Piano layer was wonderful. More

We sat overlooking the Fisherman's bastion watching the pedestrians out for an evening stroll. The 3 course meal was delicious and the waiters willingly explained the ingredients of the Hungarian dishes which were very tasty and full of goodness.

Overall for a hotel chain the meal was reasonably prepared; generous portions with a hint of imaginative delivery......like most things I suppose it's what you are use to. Service professional but cold, a little more time invested in smiling would have made the meal flow. Overall very good despite the old eastern bloc customer service.

Staying in District I / Buda

Neighbourhood Profile
District I / Buda
The historical center to a city with a multifarious and intricate past, Buda has some of the most outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube. Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.
