If you love meat, don't miss on this opportunity. This restaurant's menu has everything one could wish for when it comes to meat. I personally had the burger, which was amazing. The service is superb and the atmosphere elegant, yet casual. I found this to be my favourite restaurant in Budapest and would visit again every time, maybe even twice... More

What a great restaurant! We were a group of 10 ladies who had booked a table here. Service was very good from beginning to end. The waiter was in good mood, was attentive and made sure our glass was never empty. The food was very good! It was one of the best meals I've eaten in a very long time.... More

I visited Robinson with group of colleagues. Our table was reserved and perfectly prepared. The staff was very attentive, always prepared to advice during meal and wine selection. I had local goulash soup and paprikash, both very tasty plus the portion was big more than enough. My colleagues had mainly steaks and everybody was satisfied. I can recommend this restaurant...

We arrived without a reservation, but were seated immediately. The waiters were attentive and friendly, the menu had a lot of attractive choices. I had a plate of pork tenderloin and potatoes that rivaled any meal I've ever had in a restaurant. Their specialty is beef, specifically steaks, but the pork was very, very good. The prices were very reasonable... More

Beautiful restaurant surrounded by a park. I had cod fish with miso sauce and extra grilled vegetable and it was perfect. The staff is very professional and the somelier very helpfull with the wine list. A bit pricy for Budapest but I highly recommend.

Description
Robinson restaurant opened in 1989 on the small island of gastronomy at Varosligeti Lake, a few minutes on foot from Heroes' Square (Hosok tere).

Over the past decades it earned popularity among the citizens of the capital as well as the expatriate community of Budapest.

Numerous great celebrities - Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Robert Redford, David Copperfield and Larry Hagman to name but a few - have tasted the delicacies prepared in the kitchen of the Robinson.

The environment of the restaurant is no less hospitable. The Museum of Fine Arts, the Budapest Zoological and Botanical Gardens, the Amusement Park of Budapest, the Great Circus and several other landmarks are located in Varosliget.

Mediterranean environment, homely atmosphere, live Latin guitar music and an excellent kitchen guarantee a memorable evening spent here.
