We dined at Cafe Callas before attending a performance at the Opera next door. Beautiful elegant old style interior, excellent service, traditional Hungarian meal choices. Slightly more haughty and pricey than our other moderate restaurant choices, but overall a very good experience.

The food was creative and beautifully presented. We chose the 4 course menu, which allows you to choose what you would like for each course. Our waitress was very sweet and explained where each of the wines came from in Hungary and a little history about them. The restaurant was a little dark which gave it kind of a somber mood, but we had fun!

The location next to the beautiful opera house and the atmosphere were very good.
We stayed around the corner in the k&k opera and eat at Callas on our first night.
I had the steak and vegetable house speciality,the food was good, along with the service.

We also stopped at Callas for coffee and cakes sitting outside most evenings.

One evening they were closed for a private party

The staff was less then cordial
In retrospect we should not have stayed.
That said the food was good.
I certainly cannot recommend them.

We stopped to have a light dinner in the late afternoon and were seated outside in the dining area. We each ordered a bowl of goulash soup and asked if they had paprika cream (Hungarian chili paste) to add to the soup. Our waiter said yes. Our soup was delivered without the paprika cream and we asked the waiter who delivered it about the condiment. He said they did not have it. My wife finished her soup and I was about finished with minhe when another waited arrived with the paprika cream. It wasw of no use at this point and they charged us for it. For soup and glasses of wine our meal came to approx $50 (USD). Poor service and pricey.
