These folks go to the market each day and create a menu with what is locally available. You have the option of a 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9 course meal! Lots of fun because the cooks explain what each dish is. Not cheap!...More

Excellent food, on the expensive side but worth it. Only complaint is that we got the wine pairing option and he was very mean with the amount in each glass

Olimpia is a small, cozy restaurant. They have a secret menu, depending on the season, and a good variation. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere is nice.

This place is absolutely worth trying. Booking for dinner in advance is essential, as it has few sits and dinner starts at the same time for all the guests. The dining concept is based on choosing the number of dishes and being surprised by what...More

3 fogás, vízzel, kávéval, borravalóval kb. 5000 ft/fő, de az ételek minősége és változatossága simán Michelin-csillagot érdemelne. A 3-course lunch chosen from the chalkboard with a sparkling water, coffee and tip should be around 5000 ft. You will get a Michelin-star quality for that price...More

I have been here years ago a few times, now we repeated the experience. The place is a bit noisy (bistro-like). It seems to be incredibly cheap, but the portions are quite small. For dinner you are just supposed to say a number, thus choosing...More

There are many places in the capital of Hungary to have your lunch, but this is the best! All the courses are created with fantasy and sense. The waiters are friendly, they learn your whimsies very quickly. Try it!
