It is hard to say much about a restaurant that the president of Russia has visited twice on the occasion of his last visit to the capital of Hungary. The food is delicious but I consider it a little over priced for Budapest. A tasting menu can set you back 280 EUR and the restaurant does not have a Michelin... More

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 August 2016 via mobile

Our best meal in Budapest! Food was exquisite. Service impeccable. Ambience was lovely. We cannot say enough wonderful things about our meal. I had the beef franz list- I usually only eat about half a plate of food. I gobbled the entire thing. One of the best steaks I have ever eaten. Hubs had the lamb. Also incredible. Please go... More

Gundel combines up-to-date cuisine with gracious traditional service. We loved our waiter almost as much as we loved the food! This is an essential Budapest experience. If you haven't had a meal at Gundel you are missing something special.

My contribution is only about a small matter of TIPPING, since I agree w the other reviewers that the food is pleasingly belle époque, the service is OK , the gypsy band plays great schmaltzy Viennese music ( better a few gypsy numbers mixed in) and the room is comfy and grand. Dinner for two was $309 as expected but... More

The restaurant is nice, service was kind and food was good. But for more than 100 euros per person, i would expect something special and perfect. The food: the cook was well presented but indeed very basic, nothing sophisticated, the meat was even pretty hard. The service was simply average, kind but not professionals. They even requested quite heavily for... More

We were there at our Sunday noon. Was thinking to visit this restaurant again as it rated as better publicity for Budapest as a shiplap of tourist brochures. Nicely greeted at the entrance hall, but here comes the disappointment. We assigned to be seated at coffee house as we decided to have coffee first. We did not get any table... More

I had a dinner here with my wife. Gundel is a traditional restaurant where you can breathe the classic atmosphere and watch the spirit of Budapest. Let's start with the food. We had a complete dinner. I liked more gulash, cheeses plate, desserts and the meat. Service is great and friendly. We have been on friday and there was also... More

The building was inside just splended. We were eating a family brunch, which was best in our life until now. We can warmly recommend to spend a Sunday afternoon at Gundel, while visiting Budapest. The butler was a lovely person. The young waitresses could understand English a slightly better, if any wishes about the future visit.
