Description
The Gundel, an iconic Hungarian institution of Gastronomy, has established itself over the past 100 years as the reference for the ‚Magyar Konyha‘. The traditional silver service dining experience; The atmosphere of an imperial dining room; The modern style culinary cooking concept; All this makes the Gundel restaurant a ‘Must’ during any visit to Budapest or the ideal spot to celebrate your special occasion. A Gundel, a gasztronómia ikonikus magyar intézménye az elmúlt több mint száz év alatt a ,Magyar Konyha’ referenciájává vált. A hagyományos, elegáns ezüst, porcelán fine dining szerviz által nyújtott étkezési élmény; az uralkodókhoz méltó art deco étterem; a modern stílusú konyhai koncepció; mindezek „kötelezővé” teszik a Gundel étterem meglátogatását egy budapesti program részeként vagy egy speciális alkalom megünneplésére.
