Barátnőmmel egy romantikus vacsora keretében ültünk be a Pierrot étterembe. A hangulatos terasz, a finomabbnál finomabb ételek és a háttérben szóló kellemes zongora-dallamok mind-mind hozzájárultak ahhoz, hogy az este emlékezetes maradjon. Külön köszönetet szeretnék mondani Szijjártó Szabinának a közvetlen, de mégis szakszerű és figyelmes kiszolgálásért....More

Since Pierrot was founded in 1982 then as the first private café-restaurant in Budapest, many important people - actors, superstars, artists have visited Pierrot, among them the bands Depeche Mode and AC/DC, actors Marcello Mastroiani, Sir Roger Moore, Antonio Banderas, Jeremy Irons, Robert De Niro, Harrison Ford, Eva Mendez and Ryan Gosling.

Pierrot has gone through several changes since 1982 but one thing has remained: In our family gastronomy is not merely a way of making a living but also a vocation in the best sense of the word.
