- MICHELIN Guide
Restaurant Stand has opened in the heart of Budapest in a peak downtown location last year. It offers re-tuned traditional Hungarian dishes. The owners are the famous Hungarian chefs, Tamas Szell and Szabina Szullo has returned to the Hungarian fine dining scene few years after leaving the one Michelin- starred Onyx restaurant. Since our last visit Stand restaurant have received their first Michelin Star, which is indeed very well deserved.
The restaurant has well balanced decoration, pleasant colours and well chosen interior design.
We had the four course menu but it was served along with a wide assortment of amuses bouches. Our selected wine was a bottle of Zweigelt rose 2017 from the Sandor Winery (Hungary)
Well presented tasty dishes, full of flavours with perfect texture, temperature and plating. The highlights for us were the pumpkin spaghetti and the suckling pig. Slight let down was the venison with puy lentils, it was not perfectly cooked and lacking of seasoning. But this had not minus the overall dining experience at all.
The service was polite, knowledgeable and helpful, just simply excellent.
Congratulations, we look forward to our next visit.
Brand new restaurant of the chef couple Szullo-Szell, who gained the Michelin star for Onyx earlier. Szell was also winner of Bocuse d'Or Europe 2016.
This place will get a star next March. Period.
Modern Hungarian, very professionally executed. Sets the standard for Hungarian classic cuisine like goulash, fish soup, etc.
