Quality of the food is excellent with nice garnish. A continuous delightful surprise dish after dish. Wine chosen for pairing matched the food very well. Service was also excellent. Waiters were responsive, helpful and very courteous. The service greatly enhanced the enjoyment of the evening. I highly recommend this restaurant. Prior booking of table appears to be a must.

If you want to have a fantastic food experience in Budapest this is the place to go.

Central location in authentic atmosphere and decorations.

The selection of tasting menu is split in 2 either domestic or foreign food.
We decided in foreign which didn’t disappoint for a single bit.

Great, well prepared food with lots of flavor and taste paired with local wines.

The waiters stood ready at all time and were able to answer all the questions that came to mind, with a nice tone and a smile on their faces.

Accompanying the coffee I had a 1941 apricot snaps, which was a real experience.

We were lucky to get a table on the day for two but reservations is recommended

All the best recommendations

Thank Nikolaj B

I love experiencing new food and I simply love eating, but my Husband is quite a picky eater. When we got the gift dinner reservation at Onyx Restaurant, my Husband was frowning from seeing the menu of "Within our Borders..."
He only eats chicken, pasta and a few variety of these, so when we saw goose liver with coffee and almond, catfish, oxtail and brain, we almost had to cancel the booking. But we went ahead and tried it regardless and it was THE BEST DECISION ever.

We experienced the best culinary night of our life and we quite literally ate everything on the menu and off the menu.

On the menu, there were 6 courses: 2 cold starters, 1 hot starter, a soup a main course and a dessert. But we received an extra 2 pre-pre starters, and at least 4 more desserts. It was a night where we experienced a true GASTRORGASM - if there is such a thing.

I have never ever eaten such amazing dishes. When you first taste the food, you experience one flavour, and once you start enjoying the bite, you feel the next flavour, which will bring out an even better taste in your mouth and just when you swallow the bite a new and unexpected taste comes which completes the entire feeling. The menu did not only fill my stomach, but it gave me such an emotional and physiological satisfaction, I have never though food can do.

Every dish on the menu is carefully paired with delicious wines making the most harmonic and fulfilling tastes ever.

The staff is absolutely fantastic: polite, knowledgable, kind and they somehow always make you feel you are the most important guest in the full restaurant. (I heard other tables say the same, which is outstanding.)

All in all the restaurant is a 7 star experience and is EXCELLENT on every single level. I could not say one bad thing about the place. Well done to the entire Team of Onyx Restaurant and a special congratulation to the Head Chef, Mr. Adam Meszaros - you have made my husband eat raw meat and he LOVED it! You should definitely have to visit our children one day to make them eat their food too. :)

We were in Budapest with friends after our Danube cruise and we so looked forward to our dinner at the Michelin starred Onyx which we booked months ahead.
We were given a table in the first room near the door. We had to order the same menu despite the fact that there were some courses which we did not like; there was no flexibility at all. The cooking was not bad but we found their sweet tooth exceeded our limits. The chairs were too big and uncomfortable and the meal took a bit too long to serve so much so that two friends had to leave early.
The restaurant staff were arrogant, unfriendly and snooty. The ambience was stiff.
That was a meal we could have done without. We did not enjoy it at all.

The service and menu were very sophisticated and high quality. The wine menu did not disappoint, and the each of the six courses were ambitious and creative.
