Best for Outdoor dining - Expert review of Pavillon de Paris

This new garden restaurant serves excellent French food.

Pavillon de Paris - which has recently replaced the long-standing Le Jardin de Paris on this site - makes the most of its position opposite the French Institute, specialising in good-quality French cooking. There’s a small indoor dining room, but the restaurant’s trump card is its walled and leafy garden, and so you’re best heading here in summer months.

Food and drink: 

The kitchen prepares typical French dishes - there is a good côte de boeuf in truffle sauce, duck liver and pear tatin.

Ambience: 

It’s a top choice for a romantic evening meal, with soft lighting among the trees and candles flickering on the tables.

Service: 

It’s not been open long, but I found the service fine.

Location: 

It's located below Castle Hill, just off the main road running parallel with the river through the Víziváros ('Water Town') area.

Price advice: 

It's pretty pricey. The main courses cost around 5,000 forints; I’d say you’re likely to spend in the region of 10,000 forints for a three-course meal without wine.
