We weren't pleased by the food or the wine here. My personal suggestion would be to avoid the promenade area (Liszt Ferenc) with restaurants. Our airline meal the next day was mor appetizing for both of us.

Ordered a good local red wine and Chicken Paprika. If ever I'll come back I will order that again. Don't order the Foie Gras starter. Try the platter instead.

Even company presentations or cocktail parties may be organized for a few persons in the private rooms. Our chef makes both international and domestic courses while is eager to serve such with care since both the mouth and the eye are to be pleased in our restaurant. Our guests may take the liberty of relying on the recommendations of our waiters – disappointment is excluded!

Here the Guest is given not only the drink from freshly roasted coffee beans but also mood, joy and buzzing. Or, may the guests of Buena Vista choose the convenient arm-chairs and easy chairs for this very reason? If so, it is needless to say that in addition to the dozens of coffee and tea specialties, light salads, food specialties as well as delicious desserts are also offered on the menu to our guests.
