Great meal overall, we settled for the traditional testing menu for my girlfriends birthday. Good variation in menus and we enjoyed the wine selection that came along with it. Staff were very knowledgeable, friendly and attentive to our needs. They even prepared a custom cake and took a Polaroid photo when I explained to them about the birthday visit. Only... More

We had the lunch bistro menu (3 courses) which was delicious. I don't think we could have gone wrong no matter what we chose to eat. The lavender ice cream was something out of this world! The staff were attentive, friendly and knowledgable. The place itself has a really nice atmosphere, somehow it feels both small and cozy but also... More

Dear cadburyboy2000, We were really happy that you enjoyed yourself so much and stayed with us. I'm sorry that nobody from us was paying attention to the music, the selection was over for lunchtime, that was the only reason it was not playing anymore. We would love to welcome you back soon!

Glamorous restaurant with perfect service, smiles and excellent food served in a very nice dining room. The restaurant was a little less expensive that other of our dining adventures during this trip to Budapest and we actually had the prestige menu with a lovely glass of Dom Pérignon 2006 for our beluga caviar starter. This was followed by scallops, langoustine,... More

My wife and I went there for dinner multiple times. We've lived in Budapest for a while and have also been to all the Michelin Starred and Rated restaurants, and are still surprised that this place is not Starred. The menu is elaborate and yet pretty straightforward. It's either a tasting menu or a la carte. There is also caviar,... More

Description
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.
