has always been and always will be!

Due to the current situation, from March 16, 2020 we will close temporarily.
To protect the health and safety of our guests and colleagues we have decided it’s best during the current situation to close for a short period of time.
We very much look forward to seeing you all soon!

One of the most iconic restaurants
in Budapest

Gundel restaurant’s executive chef, Zsolt Litauszki, who has been instrumental in the success of many restaurants during his career, joined the legendary restaurant in City Park because he believes in upholding tradition while also breathing new life into Gundel.

A meal at Gundel can make an ordinary day feel like a holiday. You can look forward to a combination of creative culinary highlights and exceptional service, complete with the sounds of a live gypsy band.


Gundel has always been and always will be!

Due to the current situation, from this day forward we will close temporarily.

During the 125-year history of the legendary Gundel, there have been several other occasions where the restaurant has had to close, for example, in 1944 during WWII, from 1972-1980 during a lengthy renovation, and from 1991-1992 during a complete rebuilding.

After a planned or required closure, Gundel has always returned stronger, reopening its gates, ready to face new challenges.

To protect the health of our guests and the safety of our colleagues we must close, and we hope that after a short transition period we can meet  once again!

The legend is forever. #thisisgundel
