Fodor’s travel guide writes: “The new digs for this celebrated Budapest restaurant couldn’t be more inviting. The leafy outside terrace looks onto majestic Andrássy út and Heroes Square; the spacious interior dining room is all grown-up big-city glamour. Dimmed crystal chandeliers, sleek black tables, and massive vases filled with calla lillies suggest a sophisticated evening in store. Expect innovative seasonal dishes … Prices match the ambition of the place, but there’s a reasonable two-course lunch special daily.”
