Today’s Gundel is back to the original mission of “Gundel is for everyone!”

We’d like to introduce you to Hungary’s most famous restaurant, which has been open for 130 years. Today’s Gundel is back to the original mission of “Gundel is for everyone!”

We believe in and promote the founding idea of Károly Gundel, under the auspices of which we offer our dishes the most famous Gundel classics, surrounded by legendary hospitality! The Gundel family created nearly 140 Hungarian dishes, giving birth to the most famous Hungarian dishes that form the basis of today’s Hungarian cuisine. In the restaurant, we present to visitors from other countries and cultures what we Hungarians like, what we eat and what we consider to be the basis of Hungarian cuisine. In addition to the 11 iconic National Gundel dishes at the core of our menu, many other unmissable dishes are also included in this prestigious selection, the perfection of which is the responsibility of chefs Viktor Moldován and András Wolf. Guests come from all over the world to taste the famous Hungarian flavours. These include the goulash soup, the paprika chicken with “nokedli”, the Somló sponge cake and the world-famous Gundel pancakes.

Everything at Gundel is about heritage, which includes the location of the restaurant, the cradle of Hungarian gastronomy. Hungary’s most famous and only Hungarikum restaurant is unmissable, the most famous and bucket-list place in Budapest and Hungarian gastronomy! The restaurant is famous for its excellent hospitality and Hungarian gastronomy. It is located in the most visited destination of Budapest, near Heroes’ Square, in a 19th century palace building at the gateway to the City Park. The palace building is not only a restaurant, but also a venue for high quality events, balls, weddings, corporate and private events, conferences and trainings.

The Gundel is built with the slogan “back to the roots”, bringing back the atmosphere of the old days in both the interior and the garden, creating a space that pays homage to the golden age of Gundel, while at the same time offering the opportunity to be open to the widest possible range of guests at any time of the day at any occaison. It is both a café and a restaurant, where you can enjoy a cup of coffee and a pastry, a delicious lunch or an intimate dinner, accompanied by live music all day long.

In recent years we have welcomed more than 400 world famous and renowned people, including Queen Elizabeth II, Pope John Paul II, Pope Francis, King Harald of Norway, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands and many others. We’ve hosted well-known actors and singers such as Robert Redford, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Whoopi Goldberg, Tony Curtis, Brad Pitt, Antonio Banderas, Madonna, ABBA, Luciano Pavarotti, Andrea Bocelli, Aaron Eckhart and Alex Pettyfer, some of whom have a dedicated table in our restaurant.

Hungary’s most famous restaurant, the cradle of Hungarian gastronomy, is known all over the world. Our guests have happy memories and many of them return to Gundel.
