“Lunch is the best deal”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

Went to Onyx last week for lunch. Be sure to make a reservation. What a delicious meal. The service, atmosphere and food clearly explain why this restaurant earned a michelin star. I think we paid the equivalent of $15 for our amazing meal. The portions are average for a fine dining establishment, but those who are expecting the usual huge Budapest portions may be disappointed. Overall a great meal from start to finish.

“You won't find cheaper michelin star prices”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

Onyx is great value for money! The wine list was extensive, the food exemplary and the prices were very affordable. Its vital to book a table to avoid being turned away due to the popularity however they have extended the restaurant towards the back.

“Unequalled and Divine”
Reviewed 9 April 2012

Restaurant Onyx in Budapest is a one star Michelin restaurant can thus be considered a very up-market venue. I have been there twice, once in 2011 and recently in March 2012. It was a surprise to experience that the quality has gone up again, not only qua food but also qua service. I had again a wonderful time as a guest here. The starters were just superb. I do not have words enough to describe the mains (venison and filet steak). The meat is so unbelievably tender and the method of preparation unequalled. The desserts...divine! The restaurant also possesses an extensive wine-list that of course also offers a wide selection of excellent Hungarian wines. The Onyx restaurant can expect me back the next time that I visit the Hungarian capital.

“One of the best in Budapest”
Reviewed 6 April 2012

I have been to Onyx a couple of times for business and with my wife for lunch. The lunch menu is a great option but the selection is a little limited until the bill starts to add up. Bread is delicious and overall a great experience. Service is oustanding. The only irritating aspect was a table of American, British and Hungarian business men who believed speaking louder meant the other party would understand them better.

“Average, average, expensive”
Reviewed 6 April 2012

We ate here with my son a lunch. Definitely is not among the ten best in Budapest. It was not bad just average. 10 tables, 6 waiters, heavy silver… I felt a little bit not welcomed, I can’t explain really why, probably because some of the personal were familiar with some guests and in a such little restaurant you cannot miss that you do not get the same attention. The food taste good as in very many other lunch restaurants in Budapest. Not excellent, but good. The mushroom soup was less than average, the pike file better than average… The price definitely not average, very expensive, but we are in the middle of the tourist district…
