4.5

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 [node:173299] 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.
