Dined at Callas this evening with my wife and daughter who is studying in Budapest and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The waiter was attentive, friendly and knowledgable. For example, he helped us find an excellent Hungarian wine to accompany our meal. We all chose meals from the weekly special including duck breast with porto grape sauce, prawns salad and St. Peter's fish in olive crust. Each item was excellently prepared with a modern take on traditional Hungarian cuisine. Dessert was fabulous as we shared a chocolate mousse with merlot jelly and the opera cake (chocolate and coffee). We sat outside on this glorious fall evening and enjoyed the view of the opera house. All in all, this was a special evening.

Great food and friendly knowledgeable staff. Food was modern traditional, the decor of the restaurant is reproduction old world. There is a great street side cafe outside watch the opera crowd come and go.

Restaurant with a lot of space. I was here with a group of colleagues and it was not difficult to find a table for 10 persons. Food was very good. Everybody likes what he/she ordered. As main dish, I took duck fillet with Dijon mustard mashed potatoes. It was SO excellent that I will definitely come here again!

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.
