Good afternoon. There is only one part of the restaurant that is on the lower level, the main room is higher and there is a staircase of 6 steps.

Description
We provide unlimited food and drink for our guests. Taste the best specialities of Italian cuisine, eat as much as you can for a fixed price. In Budapest, Ape Regina is the first restaurant which alloys irresistible Italian tastes and the popular “All you can eat” concept. Both the selection of the location and the design of the interior required careful preparation. After nearly 1,5 years of planning and construction, we opened our restaurant for gourmets in downtown Budapest, in January 2016. Apart from the unique culinary spectacles we provide, our guests can admire the special shapes and colours of interior spaces, as well. Our menu includes a wide range of traditional and southern Italian specialities. Our buffet table offers a great variety of Italian hams, salamis, mortadellas, cheeses, starters, Sicilian specialities, fresh pastas, grilled dishes and instant meals. Our salad bar offers fresh vegetables, green salads, seeds and delicious dressings. Our bakery products are baked in our own oven. In addition to our permanent menu, our chef’s special offers, which consist of Sicilian dishes, vary week by week. All of our pastas are made in our own pasta factory based on our Sicilian chef’s family recipes. Our pasta dishes are made a la minute upon request. As our pizzas are baked from crispy, thin dough in wood-fired oven, they preserve traditional tastes. A wide range of fresh meat and vegetable dishes, including chicken and seafood, are grilled on lava stone. Our desserts include classic Italian confectioneries. Some of our pasta dishes and pizzas are available in gluten-free version.
