It’s always rather exciting to discover an amazingly unique restaurant, rather unsuspectingly. The bar has been set high in the restaurant world, but Halazsbastya Restaurant is officially our favourite restaurant in the world. Fit for a princess it proudly resides in a beautiful tower of Fisherman Bastion in Buda. The mystical fairy-tale castle, that is so enchanting one can almost imagine Rapunzel waiting at the top of the tower.
With a bar in the spire, a restaurant terrace overlooking the Danube river for al fresco dining and an extravagant fine dining room, this is perfect for any special occasion. It’s an idylic venue for a wedding and the most romantic setting for an anniversary. The views of Parliament are unprecedented.
The dining room looks medieval and it evokes memories of childhood fairy-tales. With beautiful arches and splendid chandeliers overlooking views of the river, it’s really rather special. With dining rooms fit for a King’s banquet. Each course is served with a cloche, swiftly and immaculately presented. Starting with warm breads and an amuse bouche of pumpkin soup was delicious. The lamb rump with vegetables was tender and delightful. The chicken served on a bed of warm apple salad was brilliantly refreshing. Dessert was a delicious trio of chocolate and was scrumptious.
The drinks trolley is well stocked and at the ready to celebrate. Celebrating an anniversary here is sure to be a cherished memory. In fact a momentous birthday, Valentine’s day would be utterly dreamy. The restaurant is truly magnificent and we really can’t wait to go back. The setting is out of this world, and the food outstanding, which is always sure to be a winning combination.
