Citadella Restaurant: "District XI: Gellert Hill" Top 5 Page for this destination Citadella - CLOSED Tip by antistar
Citadella - CLOSED, Budapest: 1 reviews and 2 photos
You'll come here more for the location than the food, although the food isn't too bad. The food is mostly Hungarian, and even that which isn't is local in style. But amazingly for a restaurant of this kind, there are even a number of vegetarian options.
The restaurant is 19th century oak panels and throne like seats, with swords and bear skins on the wall. According to my nationalistic Hungarian friend, the Citadella was built by the Austrians to lord it over the Hungarians below, and it certainly feels very lordly in the Citadella Restaurant.
Note: the pictures were taken at our Christmas party out the back of the restaurant. The poker table was imported especially for the occasion and isn't a regular feature :).
Address: Citadella sétány 1
Price Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: Take Bus 27 to the top of Gellert Hill. If you are taking a taxi back, remember that they can't come into the Citadella itself. You'll have to walk down to meet it.
