The food that I eat was not good. The hostess was very friendly. I did not enjoy the food. Maybe this was bad luck.

We had a nice experience in January, it was cold outside and we had a warm lunch here. I had salmon curry, it was super delicious, the size and proportions of the dish were simply perfect. For dessert I had chocolate cake, it seemed small however it was full of taste and fulfilling. We are definitely planning to come back.

Been twice, business dinner and lunch in couple. Once tried salmon, second time the French steak. Both very good, tasty and did not leave any bad memory after digestion. Also the desserts were both good. I noticed a good variety of drinks, though I am not drinking any alchool, so I am not able to rate that. Prices are according... More

We visited this restaurant for a light lunch while in Budapest on a city break. We each chose the blue cheese frisée salad. My husband has coeliac disease and asked the waiter if it was gluten free and more specifically whether there was any bread or flour in it. He assured us it was gluten free but when the salads...

Description
Robinson restaurant opened in 1989 on the small island of gastronomy at Varosligeti Lake, a few minutes on foot from Heroes' Square (Hosok tere).

Over the past decades it earned popularity among the citizens of the capital as well as the expatriate community of Budapest.

Numerous great celebrities - Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Robert Redford, David Copperfield and Larry Hagman to name but a few - have tasted the delicacies prepared in the kitchen of the Robinson.

The environment of the restaurant is no less hospitable. The Museum of Fine Arts, the Budapest Zoological and Botanical Gardens, the Amusement Park of Budapest, the Great Circus and several other landmarks are located in Varosliget.

Mediterranean environment, homely atmosphere, live Latin guitar music and an excellent kitchen guarantee a memorable evening spent here.
