Jon and I ate dinner one of our three nights in Budapest at this restaurant. We did call in advance to make a reservation which I think was smart. When we left there was a line to get in the door. Our dinner was good. I had hoped for more but it was fine. The ambiance I think was more... More

Spend most of your time taking in the decoration, especially the ceilings. Attentive, relaxed service but food pretty standard.

Incredible, luxurious decor. We went at 5 and there was a trio playing lovely music. You'll feel like you're at the Versaille Palace. However, the coffees were lukewarm and weak and the Hungarian cake sample tray we had, tasted like they were purchased from packages bought at the grocery store. Food was incredibly expensive (18€ for three small cake samples... More

The most impressive thing about the New York café is the building itself. The ornate ceilings and beautiful architecture take us back to a bygone age. The food is very good and the service of a very high standard (although a smile or two from the waiters might be nice!). Even the classical music being played by the band was... More

Service was excellent though prices were a bit on the high side compared to other restaurants in the area but still very... More

My wife insisted that we go. I found the restaurant overly touristy. Not my favorite environment. The facility has been restored to its former glamour and its worth the visit to see its splendor. The food is OK and the prices are high. It's non stop people some dressed like they just came from the gym. I had a salad... More

Had to went in to see itr! it is pretty beautiful and elegant! a journey to the past Expensive, but not as much as should be expected. Anyway only had a melange, typical cafe with milk and honey, very well elaborated and presented with exquisite cookies. But breakfast seemed to be worthwhile trying. It is glamorous, but very client democratic... More

Lucky enough to stay at this beautiful hotel, booked in for breakfast in the cafe on our first morning. All staff were welcoming and looked after us during our quick visit. We opted for the breakfast buffet - 25 euro all you can eat. A bit pricey, but for a famous cafe with amazing art and culture and a beautiful... More

Tasting menu is exquisite and beautifully presented. I did not choose to go with the pairing wines but, on reflection, I probably should have.

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

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.
