Gundel is also very close to Hero Square and beside the zoo. The veal and duck were absolutely delicious. Such a great variety of desserts it was very hard... More

We had Sunday afternoon brunch. We arrived to piano playing and escorted to a beautifull round table overlooking the dining room. It was a buffet style meal but with every element of fine dining. The food was amazing and the attention to detail from the staff made this a very memorable experience.

We came to the restuarant to celebrate my fortieth and boy did the team deliver. We were there on a Wednesday, and it was a quiet Jan evening. We ended up having the whole place to ourselves, with about 4 people looking after us. The were playing for just us for 2 hours, asked where we were from and played... More

While trying to find somewhere to feed our needs, we accidentally ran into Gundel. Lets just call it a happy accident, because after giving our jackets at the garderobe (giving us the impression that it will be an expensive night), we were luxuriously seated in a nicely decorated restaurant. The surprises did not end there, because while my fiancee was... More

First went here on August 1999 trip to Hungary for the total eclipse of the sun (down on the Slovenian border). 4th visit this time. The only thing that's changed is that they now sell different souvenir ties. Save up and go for a really old world experience. Nearly £350 for the full works for two. Multi course menu with... More

Nice experience, found it when we returned from the thermal baths - next time would take the effort to dress up because the place looks fantastic. Started with champagne and tasted different foods as we shared between group of 4. Would love to enjoy dinner again here.

It used to be a very famous restaurant and no doubt, it is still an excellent restaurant but one can find similar gastronomic pleasure for a more friendly price. Very good meals and drinks, superior service, nice interior that you have to pay a high price.

Old Hungarian, expensive, restaurant. Businesses take out of country clients here. Food is OK , service is excellent but very formal, live gypsy music . Had triditional stew noodles were cold. Desserts were presented with a flair, but what was hip in the 60's flaming swirling.... but not that memorable tasting, had the famous pusta cocktail, love cocktails but this... More
