We had our last dinner there, before a nice walk to the riverside. The dinner was traditional, great, good food. Alive traditional music. You can ask from the menu or a dinner set. Perfect place for finishing our visit to Budapest.

I happen to love duck, so when I saw this place being near me during holidays in Budapest, I immediately went in. And I wasn't disappointed - they really know how to make excellent duck meals. I ordered big "Duck Plate", and especially loved crispy/roasted...More

This is the best restaurant we have been at so far! The service level is high (relative to the many “tourist trap” restaurants in the city) and the food is delicious! Furthermore, the restaurant is located in a cosy neighborhood which makes the experience even...More

Description
The 'Kacsa' (Duck) Restaurant is situated in Buda in the heart of Vizivaros spreading at the feet of Castle Hill on the corner of Fo and Kacsa streets. Vizivaros (Watertown) ows its name to being part of the strategic waterways in the Roman times with its vivid harbour and bustling commerce.It still preserves the atmosphere of the old times with narrow alleyways in many places. The restaurant having been in operation for more than fifty years is established in one of these tarnished buildings. In 1987 it was the first restaurant in private ownership in Budapest. We offer typical Hungarian dishes beside the main specialities of the restaurant,the famous duck meals,which are served with an excellent selection of wine exclusively originating from Hungarian wine-cellars. 70 Different courses can be found on the menu from cold starters to desserts,among which 9 are duck specialities. Live gipsy music provides a memorable experience every night together with the intimacy of the dinner. The kind and friendly staff, the beautiful cover,live music and the elegant setting create a splendid atmosphere for consuming a family, a romantic or a business dinner as well as a meal with your friends. Visit our restaurant and make sure in person that it is not by chance that this restaurant is listed to be as one of the best of Fine Dining Restaurants.
