There is little to match Caviar & Bull by way of culinary excellence, sophisticated décor, location and impeccable staff. Marvin Gauci has expanded the name to the Corinthia in Budapest and we’ve no doubt that the superior service extends to continental Europe. Here you’ll find an elegant and finely-curated venue that never feels stuffy or imposing. Floor to ceiling windows allow the glow from the Corinthia pool to shine through on one side, and the vista of St George’s bay across to the Dragonara Casino on the other. In between there are chiffon curtained private areas that still allow you to feel part of the ambiance. In summer the deck is open for al fresco dining.
The menus are extensive, but the specials deserve serious consideration. Freshly shucked oysters and an impressive selection of caviar tempt you. Tuna tartare marinated with mango, chili, soya, avocado cubes and spring onions is delicate and refined, and the reconstructed mushrooms with micro greens, black truffle and honey emulsion, spicy mayo and caramelized shallots are too good to share. Pan-fried Australian wagyu rib-eye served with Chef’s sauce trio and slow-cooked lamb shoulder accompanied by roast potatoes and steamed seasonal vegetables melt in your mouth. The warm chocolate hazelnut brownie is impeccably presented. The impressive international wine list is perfectly complementary.
