Hungary’s most famous hotel has been welcoming its dear guests since 1918. When building such luxurious hotel that also houses an elegant restaurant and many lush lounges, they also planned a more casual spot to open for tourists and locals from the area to gather for a drink and some lovely snacks.
In 1927 Gundel, the famous restauranteur family took over the catering for the entire hotel from the pool bar to the cafe and all private rooms. Károly Gundel, head of the family was convinced that the former pub would serve as an excellent brasserie to host non hotel guests so he started improvements as well as opened the gorgeous terrace that offered a stunning panoramic view of the capital.
We are in 1960 when their own kitchen opened so Gellert Brasserie official became a restaurant. Today it is the local’s favourite place where grandfather and grandson often meet for an ice cold beer and some delicious food.
