The delights of Hungary's cuisine and hospitality

Taverna Hotel and Restaurant Co.

Hungary brings to mind fine food and a rich culture and folklore and indeed, culture and gastronomy are among the most attractive features of this small country. The Taverna company offers not only these, but also high quality service to tourists and guests.

If you want to taste real Hungarian food, you would be welcome in our central Budapest restaurants - the only Hungarian restaurant chain in Hungary. Taverna is the official caterer to the Hungarian Parliament and the Hungarian State Opera House; our masterchefs cook for royalty and celebrities and our catering party service has made a success of many gatherings.

'Not only for the soul, but for the body as well' could be a slogan for the programmes organised by the Taverna Tourist Service. On Margaret Island, in the heart of Budapest, at our 'Hungarian Evening', guests will find everything; folklore shows and feasts, Hungarian dishes, drinking and joy. If you haven't experienced the 'Hungarian Evening', you haven't experienced the real Budapest.

And we must not forget our famous wines. At every wine festival, visitors can try Hungarian wines. This year at Vinexpo in Bordeaux, two Hungarian wines won gold medals, two others got silver medals and three got bronze medals. In Taverna restaurants, sommeliers help the guests to choose the best wines to accompany their food.

Every year, millions of people come to Budapest, one of the most beautiful capitals of the world. Taverna offers a range of hospitality, from the four star Hotel Taverna to pensions offering three star hotel comfort at reasonable rates. Our company has extended its services by opening a new pension chain: City Panzio Matyas (three star), City Panzio Pilvax (three star) and City Panzio Ring (three star) have been set up in the city centre. The Hotel Taverna is the only hotel in the famous and elegant shopping street, Vaci Utca. The three star Hotel Liget is a good choice for those who prefer to stay near to tourist sights like museums and parks and amusements like the circus, zoo and funfair. Our Epitok-Liget Congress Centre provides a hall for 1,200 people, and excellent function room facilities for business meetings, congresses and seminars.

At Lake Balaton in Balatonfured our three star hotel, Hotel Fured, meets everyone's approval for conferences and holidays.

We hope one day to welcome you to our hotels, pensions and restaurants.
