We were here for a late lunch, and were blown away by the quality of the cooking. The duck breast and beef, in particular, were outstanding. Great wine selection, also. It was probably one of the more expensive lunches we've had, but it was memorable and one of the highlights of our visit to Budapest.

If you like Fois Gras this is the place to go. The main course was a delight and relative to London prices, very cheap.
The restaurant was well appointed and professionally run. Its position was good, near the Danube and the town.
We would recommend a visit.

An excellent meal. Each course was special. The waiter was very helpful, friendly and attentive although the restaurant was very busy with two large parties.

We decided to have dinner here based on a recommendation by colleagues. According to them it was one of the best meals they had in Budapest. With that kind of endorsement, how can one not give it a try. The restaurant was 5-6 blocks off the main shopping area and the Marriott, at which we were staying. Not many people in the restaurant at about 9:00 p.m., yet it took the waiter a few minutes to approach the table and take our wine orders. I had a Szepsy Furmint and my guest had a Kardos Tundermese, both were quite nice. As an appetizer we had the goulash soup (1200 Ft), which was quite tasty. The main courses consisted of the Rosé Duck Breast with Quince Textures (3900 Ft) and Beef Sirloin with Potato Soufflé (6100 Ft). My steak was perfect and my friend said the duck was one of the best she has ever tasted. That is saying a lot as there is a place in Pittsburgh that she constantly raves about! The food was fantastic, but my lemonade (980 Ft) was neither lemonade nor tasty. In fact it tasted like watered down tang. Very disappointing after a great meal. The service continued to be slow throughout dinner and even when it came time for the check, we had to track the wait person down. But overall, I am glad we stopped at Tigris for dinner as the food was delicious. I would recommend if in the pest side of town.
