It was quite cold, and there was no outdoor heating solutions for the open-air restaurant area. I ordered glintwein, which came warm, not hot. However, the view was really nice.

Located within the Fisherman's Bastion, this cafe is an excellent place to pause for a drink or meal. There did seem to be an indoor seating option, however, I sat outdoors with a beautiful view across the Danube River to the Parliment Building.

An upmarket and quite pricey restaurant in the Fisherman's Bastion. Spacious restaurant with a good menu, good service and the food was good value. Stunning views across the Danube to the parliament building in the setting sun.

empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the
time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many

The Halaszbastya Restaurant is not just a restaurant, but an atmosphere, an expression of feeling which is much more complicated to describe than to try out and become a party to the miracle... Thanks to the elegant, neo-Romanesque styled internal space and the well-trained hospitability team the Halaszbastya Restaurant impress their guests with not only its beauty but warm atmosphere as well. Margareta Terrace is the uppermost terrace of the Restaurant with gorgeous panorama. We offer hot drinks in winter time and ice-cold refreshers during the summer heat, while the Danube Terrace, - which is in line with the Danube -, we offer hot and cold dishes from spring to autumn. An excellent venue with wonderful panorama of Budapest and intimate live music provides an unforgettable experience for our guests.The gastronomic style of The Halaszbastya Restaurant: innovative kitchen. We regard it as a challenge to participate in revive the most beautiful tradition of the Hungarian kitchen, and familiarize our typical flavours with our visitors. We paid especial respect to set up our wine selection highlighted Hungarian wines from reputed regions and offer prominent wines from abroad as well. Our sommeliers guide through more than 150 sort of list and recommendations help our guests to choose the best for excellent courses, their mood and gusto.
