Celebrating the 50th anniversary of the day we met, and veterans of many memorable dinners at many wonderful and extraordinary restaurants, our evening at Arany Kaviar was a night to remember. The menu -- we did the seven course tasting option --was amazingly creative -- tastes, textures, and combinations we have not encountered previously, at least in American restaurants. The... More

I never tried caviar, well this is the place to do it! Food and wines are very nice. I can really recommend the St. Jacob scallops. But the decoration is a bit poshy and the music choice is interesting; it switches between classical and house. Its definitly good, but there are better options in town.

Arany Kaviar is well worth a visit! The restaurant offers several set menus, and a festive table if you book a few days ahead. The quality of the food is high, and you get to try a great variation of food. The sommelier is excellent, and happy to help. The staff is very friendly.

From initial greeting to desert, Arany Kaviar is exceptional in every way. Start with a flute of Dom Perignon and go for the larger of the tasting menus. The experience is one to remember and cherish with your loved ones and close friends. We will definitely return on our next visit to Budapest!!

The restaurant of Attila Molnár and Szása Nyíri is waiting for their guests for more than 20 years already.Arany Kaviár is considered one of the best fine dining restaurants. They improve Russian cuisine. They prepare traditional dishes with contemporary methods, the way we like them.For five years the restaurant is recommended by the Michelin guide.Accordingly, one of the cornerstones of the menu is the “Traditional Russian cuisine”, the true and worthy representatives of the classic cuisine of the court of the Czars. The dishes are based on traditional Russian recipes, preserving their authentic feel, but are prepared with modern techniques and ingredients. The dishes are not reinvented, but improved.The other pillar of the menu is the wide selection of marine and freshwater “Fish dishes”, and their diverse compilations. The premium quality and year-round availability of domestic fishes are guaranteed by our close cooperation with fisheries; and our carefully selected seafood is supplied by the fish market of Strasbourg.The third and most important pillar of the menu is the “Caviar Gourmet Menu”, and the Caviar Card, listing the caviars produced and distributed by the restaurant and the dishes prepared with them, thus demonstrating the versatility of the culinary utilization of caviar. The Arany Kaviár Gourmet Selection has represented and conveyed the philosophy and values of the restaurant within and outside its walls. The “Hungarian caviar” successfully debuted on the international market in 2011. On the largest and most prestigious hospitality exhibition, the SIRHA in Lyon, world-renowned chefs sampled Arany Kaviár’s product.

Staying in District I / Buda

Neighbourhood Profile
District I / Buda
The historical center to a city with a multifarious and intricate past, Buda has some of the most outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube. Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.
