Budapest's first restaurant to receive a Michelin Star was Costes back in 2010. Since that year three other restaurants have joined to the Michelin-Star prestigious group of fine dining restaurants.
Only in 2015, Budapest's fourth restaurant to make the cut - Tanti - received a Michelin Star; a huge feat considering Tanti had only been open about half a year.
With the release of the 34th edition of the French Michelin Guide books, we take a look at Hungary's Michelin Starred restaurants. If you have a special event coming up you should visit one too - it will be a most memorable and treasured experience.
Costes was the first restaurant in Budapest to be awarded a Michelin Star in 2010. We recommend this gastro powerhouse for the celebration of special events or to impress business partners. With its minimalist, modern interior, and its silverware and crystalware, Costes radiates elegant 21st century bistro vibes.
