RESTAURANT REVIEW: COSTES – RESTAURANT / BUDAPEST

This August I visited Budapest again after 4 years. Definitely it brings me some memories, but it’s amazing any time. I always discover something new about Budapest and about the things that it has to offer.

So, this time it was nothing different from my last visit. I was searching for a place where I can eat well and where the ambient is warm and welcoming. I found all that and much more in Costes restaurant.

WHAT DID I TAKE?

The restaurant is an intimate cozy atmosphere, very colorful and does not hold a lot of tables.

Is there any better start than with a glass of campaign?

My suggestion is to go with a 4 course menu, it’s enough and you won’t be hungry after taking it.  With 4 course menu you got 3 dishes and dessert.

Our choice was:

COLD STARTERS
1. SMOKED SZENTGYORGYVAR STUGERON (“Tejfol”, Hungarian osetra caviar, potato, leek)

2. DUCK LIVER FROM THE KUNSAG REGION (marinated in Tokaji wine, cucumber, granny simple apple, homemade brioche)

FISH AND PRE-MAIN COURSES

  1. LILLAFRUNED TROUT (Hungarian green split pea dish – fozelek, green beans, caviar, savory)
  2. BALATON (LELLE) PIKE (summer truffle, wild mushrooms, sabayon, spring onion)
