We had a cozy and excellent cooked dinner at this restaurant. After trying several other options this was by far the best of all. Staff was attentive, atmosphere modern yet cozy and the food AMAZING. I had squid and scallops and my companion dover sole, all perfectly cooked. We finished with some sweet wine (Tokaji-- 6 puttonyos-- pricey but worth... More

The service was the best I have ever received in any restaurant. Very polite and courteous service. Food was out very quickly and efficiently. Also considering the quality of the food we all thought the value for money was very good

The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere and great staff. The food was made to perfection and presented nicely. If I'm ever in Budapest again, I will visit this restaurant.

When you go to a Four Seasons restaurant the expectations are generally a notch higher and Kollazs doesn't disappoint. Service and food are both impeccable and the Gresham Palace setting is unbeatable. Yes, the prices are a little higher than some other good Budapest restaurants but not excessively so and the experience makes it worth every penny. Great place for... More

A spontaneous decision to have a "little snack" on a Friday evening after shopping turned out to become one of the most marvelous gastronomical experiences ever. The very interesting menu made us so curious the we spontaneously decided to go for the "surprise menu". When asking how many courses this would mean, the staff just let us know that even... More

My partner and I had been looking forward for months to our pre-booked New Year's Day brunch at this restaurant in the Four Seasons Gresham Palace Hotel. As it turned out, we would have been better off saving the £120 we spent and going to any of the other lovely restaurants we'd visited during our trip, enjoying much better food... More

We had a perfect dinner at Kollazs restaurant at the Four Seasons hotel. Every dish was perfectly cooked and decorated, and tasted like heaven. The Foie gra was different from other Foie gras we ever tasted and was very delicious. Also the Lobster soup came with a large dumpling filled with lobster meat and we enjoyed it very much. The...

Starters of Bone Marrow & Porcini agnolotti both dishes superbly executed. Mains of Veal and Beef Cheek also very enjoyable. The sommelier recommended an excellent if slightly expensive wine which went with all of our meal choices. The service was excellent without being intrusive. We could not manage a dessert, sadly, they all sounded delicious. Would return if visiting Budapest... More

Description
Vibrant and inspiring, yet casual and affordable, KOLLÁZS - Brasserie & Bar is a contemporary European brasserie in a landmark Budapest location, overlooking the Chain Bridge and the Danube River. The Hungarian word for "collage," KOLLÁZS highlights creative combinations in all aspects of the dining experience. The interior design reflects the artistic era of the 1910s and '20s, honouring Art Nouveau style and Budapest's legendary coffee house culture. Conceived by EDG Design of San Francisco, the look is a collage of the old and new, the luxurious and simple, in keeping with the character of Budapest. Bringing together four distinct focal points - the rotisserie, bar, wine cellar and patisserie - as well as a convertible, all-season terrace, the environment feels hip and comfortable, whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner. To contrast the historic interior, the artwork on display is contemporary, featuring regularly changing shows curated by Art Market Budapest, the organizer of Eastern Europe's top international contemporary art fair. Chef Árpád Györffy - previously chef at Arany Kaviár and sous-chef at Alabárdos in Budapest - has created a menu that blends local and international flavors, as well as traditional and modern dishes. The focus is on modern European and French brasserie cuisine with signature Hungarian specialties. Cocktails are traditional yet with chic, modern flair, based on a bar menu created by Jaime Jones, the London-based international bar consultant and global gin connoisseur. Kollázs's sommelier, Mátyás Szik, has won twice the Hungarian Sommelier Championship - in 2013 and 2014 - and was previously head sommelier at Budapest's Prime Steak & Wine. The music at KOLLÁZS blends well-known songs, such as Hungarian and French tracks from the 1950s and '60s, with modern sounds - in a soundtrack selected exclusively for the restaurant. Headed by restaurant manager Mihály Kártyás, the KOLLÁZS team provides service that is casual, friendly and social. As part of the plan to create a lively atmosphere, the restaurant offers reasonable prices that are intended to attract an eclectic mix of people. As Budapest emerges as a modern metropolis, KOLLÁZS perfectly captures the dynamic spirit of the city: historic yet contemporary, timeless yet fresh, glamorous yet relaxed. KOLLÁZS promises to become one of Budapest's most popular dining destinations - welcoming with understated, informal elegance.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
