The food here was awesome, the pizza had a great crust and very good sauce..mark of a good Italian place. The floating island dessert was also a nice surprise, for any vanilla lovers...go for it, it's delicious. I also have to say the ambience of this place and the service are wonderful, we really enjoyed our meal after a long... More

Excellent choice and location was this restaurant for our wedding dinner on a beautiful autumn day. We were very satisfied with the standard of service, fine food and crew as well. Quiet but perfect work was made by the stuff, discretion and sufficient flexibility are their labels. The manager was permanently present and supervised the work, which was really impeccable....

Having walked the length of Buda Castle you find yourself leaving by a NW gate. Take an immediate left and find Riso within 100m on the right. It is an oasis of quiet, clean calm - close to the action but far enough away not to attract the coach parties. The menus are in English, the pricing is average for... More

Dinner was lovely last night. Great waitress. Food was fresh and service great. However I can't say the same about breakfast. I felt that this mornings breakfast was left overs from yesterday's, the food was cold due to the burners not on and bread stale, I felt they didn't even top up the pastries, fruit or bread from yesterday's breakfast....

Dear guest! We regret that the problems arose at breakfast, but if you ask to take a separate evaluation of the restaurant, because we do everything to be happy, and 2 points is not good for the restaurant. If the restaurant were satisfied, please think about how many points will you give us the restaurant. In the future, we will... More

My husband and I recently got married in Budapest and held a big dinner the night before the wedding at Riso on the terrace for all our guests. The staff prepared a wonderful buffet dinner for our guests and lots of delicious wine and cocktails. They decorated the terrace beautifully (with absolutely no help or guidance from us!) and the...

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.
