This is one of the top restaurants in Budapest. Its ranking in the Budapest top restaurants do not do it justice. The place is centrally located, near the Basilica. The restaurant has a nice decor with friendly staff. The food was excellent as was the wine we tried. We tried the Quail consomme soup and the Goulash soup and for... More

I had a big party of people (17) and the restaurant luckily had a private room out in the back where they accommodated us. The service was brilliant and the food was excellent. I would happily recommend this restaurant to anyone who comes to Budapest

We really enjoyed our dinner in Tigris. Even it's more expensive than most of dining places in Budapest, the cuisine is exciting, kind of author cuisine. They have selection of foie gras in different ways of cooking, and have very nice cutlery. Local wine selection is great as well, special golden sweet wine - tokaj wine szamorodni. I would recommend... More

Coming back from Tigris few minutes ago and I have to say that it was amazing. Professional staff, very attentive and knowledgeable. The food was fantastic, and selection of Hungarian wine impressive. Would come back with French family for another Foie gras degustation.

Thank GuimouL

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
