I was so torn about how to rate this Michelin starred restaurant. Almost every course of the Hungarian Evolution tasting menu was outstanding. Unfortunately, both my husband and myself were underwhelmed by the wild boar stew. I found the meat to be a little too chewy, and the dumplings to be gooey (possibly how it is traditionally prepared, but it... More

Five star reviews somehow feel imposing. As if it was the most singular event and thusly needs nothing but lavish and praise. This is not the case for our visit to Onyx. It was excellent, but the trout dish was lacking in flavour and disappointing, the non-alcoholic options for my pregnant fiancee seemed slapdash and did not meet our expectations... More

The tables are well dressed, the staff high class, the plates very large and the food very small, very very small. The price very very high. It was good but really it's not serious to practice this kind of price.

A really wonderful dinner. The food was absolutely faultless throughout. We had the Hungarian tasting menu on the suggestion of the excellent staff and were not disappointed, it is the best to go for if you are visiting the city for the first time to see their take on Hungarian food. The staff were courteous, informative and friendly. A wonderful... More

Although a Michelin star restaurant in Budapest is cheaper than other European cities, this is still an expensive dining experience. Whether it's worth it will depend on how much you value the creativity of the dishes (highly subjective). I would recommend the shorter tasting menu as you get numerous extra bites before/after meal. For the longer menu, budget about 4... More

This Michelin starred restaurant is excellent. Fantastic presentation of beautiful, tasty dishes. They also had a great selection of Hungarian wines which were first class. The staff was friendly and we enjoyed ourselves and stayed for hours.

Living in Budapest, at some point we had to visit the "best restaurant in town". And it was worth it. The service is something that I have never ever experienced before, and the food is simply amazing. I never thought that these hungarian dishes could be prepared in such a different way. It was truly an unforgetable gastronomical experience.

It is a rare experience for many people to eat in a Michelin-starred restaurant, and when you do, you expect the best of everything: this is what we received at Onyx.

The whole visit was perfect from start till end. We chose the hungarian menu and wine. We had some special requests which was no problem for them. The food was excellent, with a slightly 'a bit to familiar' gulash and spetzle, but the other dishes were great! With good portions and flavours. The wine was great 5/6 - all from... More

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.
