“Great modern Hungarian cuisine”
Reviewed 20 May 2014 via mobile

This is a very good restaurant, reliable and original. Food is very fresh and staff is kind, friendly, and efficient. The soup is tasty, with a touch of exotic flavours. The duck was outstanding, well cooked and presented with carrots puree. Go there and enjoy the Hungarian originality!

“Something different”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

Olimpia is a small restaurant with not many seats, but it offers a special culinary experience for a really great price (lunch menu). If you want to try something different, then this is the place to visit!

“Fine dining at affordable price”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

A special culinary experience where you want to take a photo of each meal.
I was waiting to get to to this restaurant for quite some time and then there was a reason to celebrate and we went for dinner.
No a la carte but fixed menu where you can select the number of dishes you want to take. I liked this surprise thing that they maintain throughout the dinner. You know the main ingredient as that is on the board, e.g. Dear, pork etc. We took the 8 course menu, which is 11 in reality but i did not feel sick as in some places after 2-3 courses.
Book in advance. Arrive for Dinner at 7 and expect to finish around 10pm.
Cosy place for approx 20 guests. Fortunatetly the 2 neighbouring tables were free as otherwise it would have been cramped.
The service was kind, professional and not too much.
It was a special culinary experience for us. The texture, colors, arrangement and combination of ingredients is special. The taste was also great but that is not the main thing I will remember, there was no dish where I thought this is just incredible.
At the end I had the opportunity to ask my technical questions to the chef Mr. Csaba Adam and he was happy to answer e.g. How they make cabbage sushi.
With the full menu and 5 glasses of wine plus tip we paid 30.000 HUF for 2 persons.

“The best lunch ever”
Reviewed 14 March 2014

If you will ever visit Budapest, you have to try this perfect restaurant next to the City Park (Liget) and Heroes' Square. I've been here more than hundred times and I couldn't recommend better place like this. I prefer the lunch menu because it's always worth the price!!!! The old grumpy waiter belongs to Olimpia. The Chef and the other ones are absolutely brilliant!
