Gorgeous old and very stylish cafe facing the Opera. Stepping inside means stepping into another era. Spacious, elegant, discreet, welcoming and with charming service - all one wishes for. Go there for tapas and Taittinger before the Opera, where the crush at interval will spoil your thirst and appetite. (Use opera interval instead to view the gorgeously dressed opera goers ... )

In an idyllic art nouveau setting, we were seated by friendly efficient staff, the food was just supreme at very reasonable pricing, my T bone steak cooked to purrrfection. What more can I say but next time if ever we are in this city again we will definitely eat here more than just the once.

Thought I should share our experience there, since the service at Callas has been somehow criticised. Honestly, we might have been lucky, but everyone was just friendly and very efficient.
The venue is lovely, old fashioned in a nice way.
As for the food, I had a great piece of duck (served on a fruity sponge cake - perfect).
Two of my friend were a little less impressed by the gnocchis - nice, but nothing spectacular. Nice choice of cocktails and wines.

I was told that this was an historic old cafe/restaurant. Maybe in an era gone it was something special. Across from the Opera (great location) but sadly the food was just "OK". I know good Hungarian food, this was just OK. Nothing special about the salad or the lamb which I ordered. A friend had some special dish with pasta that was also blah. Maybe at one time in history gone by this was a special place, but now it rides on its past reputation. Sad...
