We had the best night in Costes Restaurant while our stay in Budapest! The menu and wine pairing was absolutely amazing, not even mentioning the super entertaining and professional sommelier and Beata the waitress.

We had the five-course testing menu. Absolutely top-class - not just the flavours but the imagination. The pigeon was absolutely exceptional. If there is a quibble it's that the wine-pairing was good rather than brilliant, but the food part of the meal was magnificent.More

A tasting menu chosen entirely from custom "playing cards" was inventive, but the service and food proved to be even more imaginative, combined with great wine pairings and terrific service. It could have been NYC or Paris—but it was Budapest and a greater value!More

We visited the original restaurant, a friend went downtown, and comparing notes I'd say the original is best.

Hi there, you can the menu online as Dyan suggested and with this level of service, as Ben also shared, I would expect they will be more than happy to accommodate any dietary requirements you may have. Enjoy!

Description
Playfulness, based on fine dining and aiming at continuous novelties is one of the major criteria characterising the cuisine of Eszter Palágyi. The determining memories of pig slaughtering events taking place early in the morning, fresh milk and milk with cow hair inspire her not only to create dishes close to nature and to recycle the family recipes, but these memories are also essential for her in order to process the raw materials always with respect and competence. She bravely exposes traditional Hungarian dishes to the cooking technology procedures of the French cuisine; thus, continuous development has become the signature of her cuisine.
