The Hungarian capital abounds with excellent fine dining spots, offering both local specialties and international cuisine, and showcasing the talent of the city’s top chefs. We take a look at 11 of the best restaurants in Budapest to make the most of a visit to the gastronomic city.
The story of Costes Restaurant started back in 2007 when the owners decided to transform the former restaurant that stood here into what you see today.
Before reopening Costes, the owners searched Europe high and low for the continent’s best suppliers, while the restaurant staff underwent rigorous training in France. In 2008 Costes took on Executive Chef Miguel Rocha Vieira – who once graced the kitchens of El Bulli – and with the help of two Michelin-starred chef Francois Rodolphe, a world-class restaurant was born.
The passion and commitment of both owners and staff brought rapid success. In March 2010 Costes Restaurant received a star in the ‘Main Cities of Europe’ Michelin Guide, becoming the first Hungarian restaurant to receive such an honor and only the second in the Central European region. Costes continues to win local and international awards.
