We have just had a family dinner here. We are not very often but regular customers. For long years, the food, service, wines are the best in Budapest i have ever met all together, as an experience. We had the degustation menu - with slight change for 2 of us. The foie gras creme brulee, just awesome! As all the... More

We have been visiting Fausto's with my family, girlfriends etc since more than 4 years. Every time I spend a night in Budapest it is sure to eat there... Why? :) They do a really good fine-dining kitchen with a regularly changing menu, mostly from seasonal dishes. The food quality is always outstanding, I never had a bad choice even... More

This Italian inspired restaurant in Budapest is centrally located and I have to say beautifully appointed. We were a party of some 25 people and it was a great experience - the food was very good - well prepared, ingredients were of a high quality and the chef was delivering on all accounts. From the starter to the desert this... More

Coming from Italy I wasn't too keen on my first dining experience in Budapest being Italian food! My husband and I dined with my sister and brother in law for lunch and we were pleasantly surprised by the outstanding service and contemporary Italian dishes with such exquisite taste and elegance in presentation that we were met with. The staff were... More

An amazing dining experience from start to finish. The waiters were attentive, patient, observant and kind, humorous and service minded. We were 8 who had booked a table, but 10 upon arrival and the table upstais was rapidly set for 2 extra. Once seated we were treated to varieties of fresh bread and a glass of prosecco. After having heard... More

You know it's not going to be your cheapest night out in Budapest before you walk in, so I see no reason to lamentate about that. Back Home in Germany, this type of dining would have not been affordable. Stellar location and athmosphere, fantastic service and food quality, able to adapt options according to allergy restrictions. A memorable evening to... More

We just walked in, looking for a place for dinner, and didn't have a reservation. We had no idea what kind of restaurant this was, but when they brought out a small table for our handbags I knew we were in for a treat (I've only ever seen that in Michelin star restaurants). The menu choice in the Osteria is... More

First time to Faustos and have booked to go back tomorrow. Set menu was superb and fantastic value. Salmon tartare with wasabi was excellent. Lobster bisque was sensational. Gnocchi with octopus was super as was the swordfish. To end we had the blueberry ricotta cake. All was fantastic. Would totally recommend. Staff were super efficient and friendly. A must if... More

We ate as a party of 8 and had the most amazing evening. Our wonderful waitor, Chubba, looked after us like royalty suggesting the 5 course tasting menu which was exquisite. Excellent value too.

Neighbourhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
