We picked this spot for an early dinner before the opera - it's next door and beautiful early 1900s style. So glad we did. Hubby had lamb and a salad. I had goulash - the potato/noodle accompaniment (not sure exactly what it was) was so amazing, even my non carb eating hubby couldn't get enough. Space spectacular and wait staff up to the task. Food came quickly, in and out in an hour, which was important given opera.

Only saving grace is proximity to opera house. Waiters cheat you if they think you are a tourist. Pay by card. If you use cash, theyy will "forget" to bring change.

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.
