The Gundel's treasured memory book is filled with notes from famous guests from far away.
Visits from royalty and church dignitaries, princes, politicians and world stars enrich the history of the 130-year-old Gundel Palace.

Signature of Queen Elizabeth II

On 4 May 1993, Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Prince Philip of Edinburgh, arrived in Hungary at the invitation of President Árpád Göncz.

For the first time in a thousand years, an English monarch visits Hungary.

During their 4 days in our country, the royal couple dined at the Gundel Restaurant on 5 May. This was a particularly big deal because it was reportedly the only occasion in the four days when the royal couple did not eat a meal prepared by the royal chef.

Visit of Queen Elizabeth II at the Gundel Restaurant

On 5 May, Prime Minister József Antall and his wife hosted a formal lunch in honour of Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, Prince Philip of Edinburgh. The protocol lunch for 32 guests began with a reception for the royal couple in the Queen Elizabeth Ballroom on the first floor of Gundel Palace.

Before the celebratory lunch, the kitchen prepared 10 test menus to make sure they fit into the 1 hour 40 minutes available. Of course, in addition to speed, quality was also a priority. The menu was written by hand and the waiters were taught a special choreography.
