Expert review of Klassz

This is arguably the best-value restaurant in the city.

You won’t find a more understated restaurant than Klassz. There are no flashy signs outside and it doesn’t accept bookings. Instead it lets good food and superb value do the talking.

Food and drink: 

The menu features modern creations that fuse Hungarian and international flavours. During my last visit, I had a sour-pickle soup to start and a main course of pork belly, made from mangalica (an ancient native breed of pig). Both were excellent. The restaurant is linked with the Hungarian Wine Society, and so there’s a decent range of wines and you can buy bottles to take away.

Ambience: 

It’s a fairly small restaurant and the atmosphere is intimate and friendly.

Service: 

Attentive and respectful - gets high marks all round.

Location: 

On Andrássy út, it's in between Liszt Ferenc ter and the Budapest Opera House. Keep your eyes peeled because the restaurant is easily missed.

Price advice: 

You’ll spend far less than you’d expect at a restaurant of this quality - a meal here is an absolute bargain. Main courses are around 2,000 forints.

Tables to book: 

You can’t book. Note that the restaurant isn’t enormous, so in peak periods you might need to wait at the bar area in the centre until a table becomes free.
