“Lovely setting & service”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

First off, our lovely waitress was very friendly, polite and efficient. Thank you!

The decor is nice. I like the layout of the place and it's surroundings. A bit tacky some would say but it was nice.

In terms of desserts I tried the hazelnut mousse cake which was presented beautifully. The flavors were nice though but the base of the cake had an an interesting texture that was a little weird. The major disappointment was the macaron, which was very dry not moist & chewy.

There was a lot of cakes, ice-creams and chocolates to choose from. If you have a sweet tooth this place is def for you!

The coffee was decent. The textured milk was good, not the best but better than most places.

Overall, an enjoyable experience. Recommended for sure :-)

“Perfect Find in Budapest”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

We had read other's reviews of Szamos, and luckily found it on our first day of exploring Budapest. We were worried that it was out of our price range, but everyone was welcoming and the menu was fun and seemed reasonable. We loved their desserts of course. But we also tried their soup and goulash. We returned several times during our stay in Budapest. A great find!!

“The most amazing cake”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

What a fantastic place. I had Almond cake which was just fantastic. Coffee with vanilla milk was delicious. Would definitely recommend a visit. 3 cakes and drinks cost us 5400 ft which included service charge.

“Brilliant place to start your day with!”
Reviewed 9 April 2014 via mobile

We went there during our first morning in Budapest and had the gourmet breakfast. The service was excellent and when they bring you the breakfast which included eggs, sausage, bread, croissant, orange juice and coffee at first you think it won't be enough but it was!!! And the price wasn't that high for its service and quality of food! Highly suggested!!!

Thank Dennis S

A bit commercial, The aesthetics were beautiful, and the flavors were amazing.... I especially liked the florentines, and one of the walnut chocolates. My daughter fell for the cookies! My husband could get gluten free chocolate.
They offer chocolate making classes, reasonably priced, but you need to schedule in advance... our schedule didn't quite work... but the person who does the English classes seemed amazingly nice and accomodating... I will schedule a class for my daughters if they want it. (Four people is enough to schedule a private class, max six).
