Editorial Gastro

When the worst of winter has already passed and springtime is within arm’s reach, lovers around the world gather to celebrate the driving force behind ah, so many books, poems, songs – maybe life itself? Here are our top 3 spots to plan a candlelit dinner at with your loved one on 14 February this year.

Ristorante Krizia

Located in the heart of the city, just a stone’s throw away from Oktogon and Andrássy út, Ristorante Krízia awaits you with a warm, Mediterranean atmosphere, as authentic as only real Italian restaurants can be. Chef and owner Graziano Cattaneo does not only know how to prepare a wide range of traditional meals with a modern twist, he can also capture the very essence of each delicious creation. Krizia, the love letter to his homeland cuisine, is a great choice for a bit of romancing, a treat for the soul and for the taste-buds!


Located only a few steps from Kossuth tér, Iguana has been a real gem of the city’s culinary map. Founded by „three Colorado dudes who missed their Mexican food”, Iguana has been spoiling Budapesters with the best Mexican-American repertoire since 1997. Celebrate your love with a few shots of the best tequila in town, one or two (or more) glasses of margaritas, a bowl of fiery Jalapeño Cream Cheese Soup and a mouthwatering Iguana Quesadilla while enjoying the cheerful vibes of the place! If you’re looking for a hip downtown restaurant that offers unique flavors, Iguana is a safe bet for sure.

Déryné Bistro

If you would like to go for a chic spot, hidden in the green belt of the Buda side, Déryné is the one! The glamorous atmosphere attracting artists, movie starts, fashion icons and celebrities alike, will definitely leave both of you with a memorable experience. Enjoy a selection of tasty food or order their Valentine’s Special, consisting of some fantastic Portuguese ceviche, angus tatar, octopus salad, Alaska black cod and crackling duck. The contemporary French bossa melodies and lounge classics should also elevate your mood.
