Next to the opera, old décor and romantic music, fantastic food - just Callas café. Incredible Filete de mignon. Friendly staff and great service. Thank you!

Wagner's Siegfried starts at 5 p.m. and ends after 10 p.m. by which time you tend to be famished and Callas just across the street looks like the ideal solution since the kitchen closes at 11 p.m. Well appearances can be deceiving. The fact there was just another couple apart from us should have opened our eyes because our food... More

Next to the opera Callas offers great service, excellent coffees (Callas brant is highly recommended) and desserts, in a very elegant ambient. Low prices a pleasant surprise.

If you enjoy waiting for 25 minutes to get the menu and again 25 minutes to be served go here . We went on a Sunday afternoon and I went to the bar to pay otherwise I think I would still be there waiting.

Interior is nice with a 1930s feel and well-located for a visit to the opera. Cuisine leaves a lot to be improved, though. We opted for the chef's specials. Fish was not cooked properly (some raw parts). Risotto left bad aftertaste. Portions are rather small and prices too expensive. Much better value can be found easily in Budapest. Conclusion: good...

What an absolute perfect setting and such a delightful variety in menu selection. I was so impressed when I had lunch at Callas that I took my business guest there for dinner and the very next day also arranged a breakfast meeting. There are only two thing I can say about Callas. 1.) they have some of the best restaurant... More

Had an early dinner before Opera. We were dressed up and restaurant worked perfectly for that. Beautiful interior and very good service with just right tone of formality. Good food also. Drinks were a bit so-so, eg Kir Royal was far too sweet and Dry Martini had too much vermut. Anyway in overall very good experience.

The decor is stunning, with a gorgeous vaulted ceiling and a real feel of the 1930s. The menu is excellent and very good value. Service is friendly and attentive. Thoroughly recommended for a classy coffee or meal.

Beautiful place. We had lunch and few drinks. Stuff very attentive and smiley. Food was nice. Good choice of drinks. Be careful with those palinkas. Very nice but very strong too ;) I would say it's a bit expensive but worth a price.

Thank Krzysia G
