It used to be a very famous restaurant and no doubt, it is still an excellent restaurant but one can find similar gastronomic pleasure for a more friendly price. Very good meals and drinks, superior service, nice interior that you have to pay a high price.

Old Hungarian, expensive, restaurant. Businesses take out of country clients here. Food is OK , service is excellent but very formal, live gypsy music . Had triditional stew noodles were cold. Desserts were presented with a flair, but what was hip in the 60's flaming swirling.... but not that memorable tasting, had the famous pusta cocktail, love cocktails but this... More

My wife and I were on an 18-day guided land-tour with Insight Vacations to nine countries in the Balkan region in May, 2016. Budapest, Hungary, was the city we visited last. This is our second visit to Budapest. Back in 2007 while on our Eastern European tour with Trafalgar Tours, we had light refreshments in the morning in a classic... More

I ate here on Christmas day and my partner and I were simply amazed. I'll start by saying a few things. If you plan to eat here, do take heed from the other reviews. If you show up without a reservation and not dressed smartly, you may not get the service you deserve. That just seems to be the facts.... More

We were there for New Year's Eve: it was all good: excellent creative food, good Hungarian wines, very professional and very friendly staff, and a very good band for live music. A perfect evening with friends. Only one thing to improve: please go for a more modern way for reservations: you should stop asking people to physically come the day... More

We arrived for lunch on Dec. 24th. We did not have a reservation, however, they were good enough to find a spot for us. However, we did not find them as overly friendly and service was up and down. Maybe this was because we did not have reservations. The soup for one of our group of four was cool at... More

We wanted somewhere special to eat Christmas lunch and Gundel restaurant did not disappoint. We were seated by the very helpful and friendly staff in a cosy corner where we were able to appreciate and admire our surroundings, the cheery pianist brightening the mood. The buffet was beautifully presented with lots of hot and cold choices and lots of delicious... More

Great food but a dud for New Year's Eve. There was a show but we were placed in a back corner so We couldn't see it. The band was adequate. The food was delicious but despite advisibg the restaurant by email and in person of a serious food allergy, the food was served to us. Fortunately I noticed before my... More

We were eating there with several friends and family. Ordered different food. The Christmas menu what I ate was good but not perfect. The price was really more than reasonable though. And we got even free drinks so I can say I'm quite satisfied. The beef had quite weird taste (my friend agreed with me on this too) . My... More

All said in the header: A unique retro-style place with great Hungarian cuisine and wine with exquisite service and very entertaining live band that made us feel pampered, special and even at home when they played some of the famous Caribbean rhythms we asked. In summary, a very unique enjoyable and memorable evening.

Thank Vacilon
