Not much more to say. Had a fantastic drink before seeing the fantastic Budapest philharmonic orchestra. The building was beautiful and really set the scene before the magnificent opera house.

At the conclusion of the closed street festival on Andrassy street we had an excellent outside table at Callas. We had two of the Hungarian designated dishes, the Perch and the Filet. Both were exquisite. The service was attentive but not overpowering. Our bonus of course was the simulcast of the opera shown at the Hungarian state opera house next door. This won't happen for everyone but I am sure the in house music usually featured would be very good.

The location next to the beautiful opera house and the atmosphere are very nice. Our first meal was fine. On the second evening, it took nearly an hour to get a glass of wine on the table. A duck ravioli dish had amazingly little duck but lots of pasta and sauce. A pork dish had remarkably little pork, but quite a lot of potato. Overall, a bit of a tourist trap?

Hard to resist this cafe when you look at the cakes displayed in the window!
We sat outside with a view to the State Opera House. Fittingly, I had Opera cake which was a lovely coffee and chocolate concoction.My husband had walnut and cream cake which I think was called Esterhauzy cake. We both opted for Callas coffee which was a delicious mix of coffee with ginger and honey and topped with cream. Expensive but worth every HUF!!

Right across from the opera house, this is the place to go after your visit for just coffee or a pastry or lunch. It will transport you back to Budapest's Belle Epoque.
