Me and my boyfriend visited Zona on our last day in Budapest. We hadn't heard anything about it, we just found it and thought it looked like it could be nice so we gave it a go. I'm so glad we did! The drinks were lovely (lots of choice) and the food was amazing - we haven't stopped raving about... More

The color of the walls - are they Tiffany blue or green? The luscious color of the interior walls drew me into this restaurant. Once seated inside we were so happy to be able to see the city and river lights of the bridges from the windows. Add on to this modern well appointed interior, amazing food and live music*... More

Visited Zona whilst on business with a colleague. We walked for quite some time and came across this delightful place in the evening. The 5 course French taster dinner was excellent, washed won with a few glasses of wine. Friendly staff that outlined each course. Staff were attentive, humorous and friendly. Highly recommended.

Had some what high expectations for the restaurant based on all the awards and solid reviews. Service was impeccable by very polite and friendly staff. Food was good, but lacked that "wow factor " which I had hoped for. Main course of venison was sadly a bit bland, but the ginger bread based dessert made up for it.

Went there with colleagues and we were very disappointed. Service is rude and pushy , place is awfully noisy and food is less than average. It is absolutely not an upscale restaurant , but a "fake" upscale place. Food has nothing special as they like to advertize: it is neither hungarian neither international, it has no taste. Lunch menu has... More

Description
Every tiny detail of the renewed ZONA is inspired by our trips to global cities.

The cuisine is influenced by their diversity, the respect for their cultural heritage and the current gastronomic trends. Exciting flavors, blustering colors unite in a unique location by the Buda side of Chain Brindge, but almost in the downtown. We add an honest, accomodating but professional table service to make your stay a unique experience, so we could show what guest and restaurant relation really means to us.

ZONA got 17 Gault Millau points in the past two years (3 hats) and received Dining Guide's Restaurant of the Year award last year.

Staying in District I / Buda

Neighbourhood Profile
District I / Buda
The historical center to a city with a multifarious and intricate past, Buda has some of the most outstanding buildings in Europe and an enviable natural landscape with stunning views onto the Danube. Centered around the Royal Palace, it provides a glimpse into the golden years of the Austro-Hungarian empire and the lives led by the aristocracy at the time. Matthias Church, beside the palace, hosted many events attended by the royal family and was the chosen place for the coronation of Franz Josef, one of the Hungarian Habsburg kings. Having admired the palace and the church, a visit to Buda will be unforgettable by the stunning and memorable panorama over Pest offered by the seven towered Fishermen’s Bastion.
