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.
