Hello Budapest,
My name is Leo, Your Highness.
We haven’t met yet, but I finally have arrived to Budapest and I would like to let you in some secrets about me, just to make sure you will recognize me when the time will come. I have a very strong feeling about you and me spending this summer together.
So, who am I…
I am coming from a large and highly sophisticated family, but if I am honest I was always the black sheep around. Nothing serious - of course, I mean from my part. :P I am eager to swim against the flow and to do what others may not even dream or think of trying.
I love to travel, to get to know other cultures and people from all around the world. I love to eat…oh my God all those amazing flavors and colors of the world.
So, I highly recommend you not to leave me hanging and meet me at the top of Hotel Clark , where I can show you the most amazing view to our gorgeous city.
See you at my roof, Leo, Your Highness

Beautiful ambience, nice cocktails, very good music. We have tried the food at the Bistrot, it was very delicious. Very good service at the Bistrot. Thank You. The menu could be a little different in the Rooftop Bar and the Bistrot, as the Rooftop Bar has the exclusive views but the restaurant not. ( especially now with works outside ).

I wouldn’t visit again since the service or the food was not outstanding. The chairs are very uncomfortable. If it is only for the view, then it can be better from the Citadel.

Very disappointing. The food is below average, and way overpriced. In any ordinary restaurant they have much better food and service.
The reason Leo still exists the amazing view.
I was embarrassed because I have chosen Leo to meet our friends.
Even the simplest thing as a Cesar salad tasted horrible.
I’m sorry to say, but there isn’t one thing comes to mind, why I would recommend Leo to anyone.
Lots of room for improvement!

Views, music, location excellent.
Food decent, nothing special, small portions. Side dishes very pricey.
You would rather eat before you visit it for dinner!

The service was amazing, especially the waiter! He really looked out for us, had great recommendations & listened!
The elevator & bathroom situation was not the best, still the food, cocktails & service made up for it!
Definitely will be back more times!

The food ??? French fries like in mcdonalds. You know its not bad but there’s 1 euro and here??? 🤣 the view is beautiful but drink and food unnecessary expensive. Cos the values and the price Isn’t equal. The food are below the average. The waiters looks like boring there 🤣 and the table and chairs horrible, and to small to eat comfortable. I know that you pay for the view but it doesn’t mean u cannot eat a good food for this price.

Waste of money. Small tables, the chairs are uncomfortable. Food ok, but nothing special. Winecard poor, Outdoor seating, people were smoking next to me, while I was eating. Service > very poor. They don't even know how to properly open a wine bottle. Not to mention, our starter arrived together with our main course. When I told for me it is a nogo, I was offered
to serve the main later as you would expect. Temperature of the drinks couldn't be worse. We took a prosecco, then a bottle of redwine, both too warm. The only positive thing is the view, but since the quality of this service, the drinks, the food doesn't fit the price, I don't recommend this place, it's a rip off, really sad, they could make so much more here, most probably both staff and manager is not trained enough to provide that kind of service, one would expect from such a place. We paid about 200€, for this money you get much better overall dining experience around Budapest. Maybe it is rather a place for drinking something, however we waited ca. 15min for our first prosecco glas. So we left this place with mixed feelings. I don't think I will ever return to this place. If you consider price/value, maybe this is the most expensive restaurant in Budapest. I don't mind spending money, but if I spend it, I want something for my money. Here you get nothing. I was offered a bottle of opus one, however if you buy such a bottle, you want to enjoy it on the right temperature and of course have a wineservice with it, so I refused it. I can tell you, sitting there for 2hours on those chairs in the smoking area, your back will hurt for sure. Sorry guys, last night was a big 0.

Nagyon kellemes volt, az ennivaló finom a hangular jó, a kilátás nagyszerü. Egyetlen minusz pont hogy a pincérek lehettek vona egy kicsit kedvesebbek ill az árak elég magassak.
Összeségében nagyon jó volt.

Amazing views but unfortunately very inattentive and unfriendly staff all around. They clearly dislike their jobs very much and not making a secret that they find customers a nuisance. It's a shame as this place has some of the best views of the city.

Really nice view, the dining was amazing. The waiter was awful. didn’t asked if the food/drinks were okay. Took the plates of the mrs. away when i was still eating. wanted us to get out for extra room for new customers. The experience was ruined but we ate well & enjoyed the view.

I made a reservation for a special occasion (which I mentioned) and they gave us the WORST table, next to a big door right stick into the table with a bad view. Awful experience. It’s sad because I’ve been there before and I really liked it but this was totally bad.

We had a reservation for 3 and we got a table in the 2nd row which had sufficient space for 2 only. It was also next to the loudspeaker which was quiet noisy blocking us to have conversation even around this small table. When we asked a more comfortable desk or a couch with a better view, they said, those are reserved for other groups with more people. There were more than 3 free during our dinner. We also ordered a bottle of wine and when it got emptied the waiter removed its holder immediately signing that, we cannot order more. As the top rude reaction, they removed our glasses from the table while we had a selfie on the balcony. My motto is ‘Tipping is sexy’, but not here unfortunately. Also, we understood the message, that this restaurant is not for local folks. They are specialized for tourists which is a pity as we were looking for our next favorite restaurant. But if someone does not like local guests, then we will not enforce ourselves. So sad!

Food was acceptable, standard bistro style, but really nothing special. The servers were amateur, getting confused, forgetting orders, zero smile. At this price level a higher standard of service is expected. The panorama and the vibe of the place are excellent. Please step up and make the service quality decent to the prestige of the location.

The outside tables looking over the Margit bridge were very dark in the night, and it was difficult to see the food. For the overall value at Leo, the outside tables on the small terrace should be provided with better light. Everything else was great.
