Szamos is worth a visit even for its decor - it is very nice; grand and opulent. The atmosphere was very nice for an afternoon tea with cake. The waitress was friendly and efficient. We had the Gourmet Selection (a plate with smaller portions of three of their chocolate cakes: Eszterhazy, Dobos, Truffel morsels with Wiener dollar), which is perfect for anyone who cannot decide what to get from their wide variety of cakes and would like to sample a select few. The cakes were definitely satisfying for a sweet tooth like me but was a tad sweet in my opinion. The menu has a whole lot of other cakes and desserts to choose from and you can even get artisan chocolates from their display. They also serve savoury lunch or dinner meals. Definitely recommended to visit Szamos!

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 :-)

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!!

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.

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
