We had visited Callas on our last trip in 2010 & were looking forward to going again.
This restaurant does not disappoint , they have raised good service to an art form, & nothing is left to chance . The food is sublime, certainly not cheap , but worth every cent, especially when you have been anticipating a real treat !
The decor is charming, with beautiful traditional architecture & fittings ( ask for a table inside to enjoy this ) & dinner is accompanied by a 4 piece orchestra ( we are next door to the Opera after all) . On some evenings they also have an opera singer , but we missed out on that.
Relative to Aussie prices for dining out, it is really good value .
Highly recommend Callas for a special night out in Budapest .

Great food and excellent service. I had a pork dish cant remember the name of it but it was on a skewer and my fiance had the duck. Both were excellent I will visit here again.

Dinner at Callas, where we dined outside on a beautiful August evening in Budapest, was a real pleasure where wine, food and music all came together to create a perfect night. The menu, which features both traditional Hungarian dishes such as Veal Paprikas and modern interpretations based on local ingredients, was thoughtful and creative. The atmosphere was delightful, with musicians (violin, piano) and vocalists presenting a variety of delightful music from Mozart to Puccini to Hungarian waltzes and folk tunes. The wine list featured a good selection of mostly Hungarian wines highlighting the talents of local vineyards. We quite happily could have eaten here every night of our stay in Budapest ( though we then would have missed out on a number of other culinary delights in this really delightful city.

I wanted to go to the Callas Cafe because they had veal paprikash on the menu and I had been wanting to try that. It was excellent as was the roast duck breast my husband ordered. For starters we had a tappas plate that included goose liver, marinated parprika, prawns, cheese and other delicacies. Including wine, beer and hard cider, the bill came to arond $85.00 US. I definitely recommend this fine restaurant, nestled under the beautiful Opera House.

Prompt and courteous service coupled with wonderful outdoor atmosphere and warm indoor dining for cooler nights can't be matched. Waiters allowed us to share meals (HUGE servings) without complaints. Food being terrific, especially the desserts, and a decent wine selection, made this a restaurant we returned to during our Budapest stay. Some nights there was also entertainment, an operatic singer and dancers, that added to the holiday spirit!
