Lovely five course tasting menu, paired with wine.
Each dish was beautifully presented and matched the wine very well!
Went at lunch time and so the restaurant was fairly quiet. Service was perfect and friendly.

The food here is truly excellent. For a five course tasting menu it is also fantastic value for money. The menu, based on a book (and changed every few weeks) is very creative and tasty. Your waiter takes you through the story and how each dish relates to the book. It's a great experience - would definitely recommend!

We had an amazing dinner there and I would highly recommend it.
The food was delicious and beautifully presented.
The staff were friendly and well informed.
Great concept and the menu changes monthly we were told.
All and all it’s one of the best restaurants we have eaten at in Budapest.
It wasn’t cheap but well worth every penny.
If we ever get to Budapest again we’ll surely go back there.

We visited this restaurant on the recommendation of a friend who used to live locally. We were not disappointed. Fabulous food, every course of our Joanne Harris “Chocolat” themed dinner was an event. Can recommend the paired wines, added so much to an already great experience. Expensive but we felt you got what you paid for. Thanks KönyvBár for a lovely night!

Came here on a solo visit whilst travelling, following a recommendation from my friend.
Ambience and interior was fabulous!
My waiter was lovely - he spoke just enough to me, but not too much ether. He was genuine and authentic instead of being over the top! He explained the dishes well.
I had the 5 course taster menu with paired wines! Everything was absolutely delicious. Theme was the book Chocolat.
Couldn’t recommend more! Hungarian wine is divine!
