Food and drink

The chef believes that cooking is an evolving art, and he focuses on continually reinterpreting and inventing dishes. As a consequence, the menu is unusual and interesting, featuring dishes like deer with pumpkin gnocchi, and red ravioli stuffed with duck breast and prune. It’s complemented by a long list of Italian and Hungarian wines.

Ambience

It's sophisticated but comfortable.

Service

The service is top drawer.

Location

It's just off Andrássy út, a few minutes from the [node:173321], [node:173318] and Deák Ferenc tér.

Price advice

You could eat a three-course meal (without wine) for around 10,000 forints, but you could spend a few thousand forints more too. There are degustation menus: a three-course lunch for a very reasonable 5,000 forints and dinner for 14,000-18,000 forints.

Branches

There’s a cheaper, less formal sister restaurant called Fausto’s Osteria (1072 Budapest, Dohány u. 5; www.osteria.hu).
