About

Pierrot is a refined yet comfortable and relaxed, friendly restaurant run by our several generation restaurateur family. We are located in a 13th century old bakery house with an enchanting hidden garden and featuring live piano music every night!

The kitchen is lead by Mr Lajos Lutz, the menu features contemporary interpretations of Hungarian specialities.

Since Pierrot was founded in 1982 it has gone through several changes but one thing has remained: In our family gastronomy is not merely a way of making a living but also a vocation in the best sense of the word.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Pierrot!

We had a lovely meal for my husbands birthday while in Budapest. The food was outstanding and great service from friendly staff. He even got a birthday cake as dessert which was a lovely surprise! Nice, cosy restaurant for a romantic meal. Would definitely recommend Pierott.

A truly outstanding restaurant in the confines of Buda Castle.

The food was truly outstanding (I speak as someone who has visited many Michelin rated restaurants across most European Countries ) and has a range of light and more substantive dishes - including probably the best Wiener Schnitzel I have personally ever eaten - including in Vienna !

A great selection of wines to suit all price points from all over the world - but some truly outstanding Hungarian Reds, Furmints and Tokaji !

The incredible Hungarian hospitality and warmth of service and overall atmosphere make this Restaurant an absolute must visit for any weekend trip or business visit to Budapest !

Afterwards you walk on the castle ramparts and see the Parliament and Pest illuminated at night for the more romantic amongst us!

This restaurant came highly recommended and lived up to expectations. Excellent service from our waiter who was witty professional and knew how to make his customers feel valued . Beautiful live piano music and everything we ate was delicious. Pike was a first and very tasty and the scallops were delicate and complimented by celery ( which I normally hate but not tonight) Great restaurant- defo highly recommend

Warm welcome as piano player tickled the ivories. Service impeccable . Guided to wine that suited our palate & choice of food. Lovely touch of a candle lit dessert to celebrate my partners birthday.
We enjoyed the evening immensely.

This is a restaurant with outstanding service and great food. Hungarian style so lots of quince and apples. Large portions for each course so pace yourself. The foie grad salad was particularly good. Recommended for food that isn’t goulash but has plenty of paprika

The service is outstanding and the food is delicious, simple and elegant. The ambience is warm thanks to live piano music and the restaurant's calm and clean look. I informed the restaurant beforehand of my girlfriend's birthday. When it was time to order dessert, a birthday pastry was brought to her accompanied by dimmed lights and a Happy Birthday sing along.

Altogether a superb restaurant with great value for your money!

Fantastic experience. The restaurant was recommended and it did not disappoint. There were four of us there to celebrate my husband's birthday. He was presented with a delicious birthday cake for his dessert. The food was amazing and there was a pianist playing as you entered which made the whole evening a lovely experience.

Service was superb, menu was really imaginative and the food was delicious, extensive wine list. Waiter was knowledgeable about wine helping us select. Restaurant was tastefully decorated and I am sure in the summer it would be lovely to sit in the garden.

The waiter was very nice, but was a bit embarrassing such that friendliness for us. The prices are average, but there aren't many courses on the menu, despite of the fact, it's an elegant place which is highly covered with international guests. The dish was tasteful, mine was very satisfying, but my partner's was a bit disappointing due to the lack of side-dish, overall, we spent a beautiful night there. The interior is lovely, excellent. The music was entertaining also, we love piano, so will definitely visit again. Thank you.

Good restaurant, good flavors on food for a upscale restaurant. Only disappointment was when I ask to be charged in local currency, he charged me in USD, thereby paying a higher exchange rate than my credit card company would have. Hope it was not intentional.

Lovely intimate restaurant on the Buda hillside . This is located within the confines of a very old bakery . The ambiance was romantic and the good food contributed to the atmosphere. The staff was courteous and polite. I would recommend this place for lunch too since it is quieter and away from the touristy fray of mediocre restaurants near Fisherman's Bastion.
