On my last night in Budapest, I decided to splurge and go to Karpatia, the "fancy" restaurant across the street from my friend's apartment.

I was blown away the moment we walked in by the stained-glass work on the seats, the fine woodwork, paintings on the walls and ceilings . . . everything. I ordered a cheese platter to start my meal, enjoyed several kinds of hard and soft cheeses from around Europe, and washed it all down with a glass of Tokay. My main dish was something akin to lasagne: ham, cheese, and peppers between layers of baked noodles. Luckily the portion was just small enough to allow me room for dessert, and I chose (from an AMAZING dessert menu) crumb cake with baked pears inside--it was heavenly. My friend ordered goulash and also pronounced it excellent.

We had wonderful service from the waitress, who came around often to see if we needed anything--a rarity in Hungarian restaurants. I recommend this place wholeheartedly!
