We went there with my boyfriend for a dinner, the location is so nice and the atmosphere as well. The food and the service was really good. I recommend this place for a perfect dinner with friends or for couples!

First trip to Budapest and this was one of the recommended restaurants. I didn't go for the typical Hungarian food but whatever I ordered was great. My friend ordered a burger and it looked amazing. (I'm sure it tasted good as well)....Chicken Paprikash is also another good choice. I would recommend these two for everyone. Very friendly people and amazing... More

Tried here on a whim and first of all the service is great - very attentive However the food (although generous) was pretty average and to be honest I had to add a lot of salt and pepper to get some flavour. Perhaps it was just what we ordered (chicken paprikash and schnitzel) but food was very boring - no... More

It was totally fortunate for us to enter there for lunch. We were very surprised : the environment is incredible, very classy, quiet and beautiful. The food is nothing less than incredible, as well the meat as the pasta and the desserts. The waiters are very kind, nothing compared to the very low average of the city of budapest !

It could have been a wonderful night... We ordered the chef's menu, all we got was a main dish. We said that we ordered the whole menu, but the waiter said nobody ever does, so he thought we only wanted a main dish. There was no possibility to talk about a solution, this was it. So we enjoyed the dish.... More

Description
Robinson restaurant opened in 1989 on the small island of gastronomy at Varosligeti Lake, a few minutes on foot from Heroes' Square (Hosok tere).

Over the past decades it earned popularity among the citizens of the capital as well as the expatriate community of Budapest.

Numerous great celebrities - Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Robert Redford, David Copperfield and Larry Hagman to name but a few - have tasted the delicacies prepared in the kitchen of the Robinson.

The environment of the restaurant is no less hospitable. The Museum of Fine Arts, the Budapest Zoological and Botanical Gardens, the Amusement Park of Budapest, the Great Circus and several other landmarks are located in Varosliget.

Mediterranean environment, homely atmosphere, live Latin guitar music and an excellent kitchen guarantee a memorable evening spent here.
