Expert review of Robinson

This is an atmospheric restaurant set in a pavilion on City Park’s boating lake.

It’s not the cheapest place, but I love Robinson’s location and character. At its core is a glass-sided pavilion, while outside is a sprawling terrace with wood-decked walkways and tables set beneath large umbrellas. It makes a lovely spot from which to enjoy a meal and the view of the ducks messing about on the lake.

Food and drink: 

The food is good, featuring a mixture of Hungarian dishes and international choices; specialities include pork cutlet with creamy spinach, and grilled camembert with a fruit salad. You can also stop here just for a drink or an ice-cream.

Ambience: 

There’s something of a Mediterranean atmosphere to the Robinson - more because of the decking and the water than anything else. The fireplace inside makes it cosy in winter, while in summer the terrace is popular and lively.

Service: 

Generally I’ve found the service good, although on one occasion it was perfunctory - let’s assume it was an off day...

Location: 

It's anchored on a small island jutting out into the lake at City Park. Heroes’ Square, the Szechenyi Baths and the Museum of Fine Arts are on its doorstep.

Price advice: 

Appetisers hover around the 3,000 forints mark, and you can assume a main course will set you back between 3,500 forints and 6,500 forints.
