Costes Downtown: the newest Michelin restaurant in Budapest
Posted by Ágnes Taraszovics · Mar 25, 2016

Costes Downtown got Hungary’s 5th Michelin-star.

The 2016 edition of Michelin Guide Main Cities of Europe has just been published: the list of 44 major cities (including Budapest) in 20 European countries introduces the best hotels and restaurants. Leafing through the brochure it turns out: Costes Downtown became the 5th Michelin-starred restaurant of Budapest after Costes (the big brother), Onyx, Borkonyha and Tanti.

Two more restaurants have the „Bib gourmand" certification, which means delicious food at an affordable price: Laci! Konyha! kept its previous received title and Petrus got the acknowledgement just now. The fact that these restaurants are mentioned in the magazine represents a serious recommendation itself. Not to mention the ratings: the one, two or three stars indicate the best restaurants. Nothing shows more the current tendency of gastronomy than the fact that the new generation of chefs cook at more and more higher standard.

The guarantee of the same high quality is the Portuguese star-chef, Miguel Vieira, who is fundamental team member in the Costes family.

In Downtown they await guests with more friendly, more “bistro-like” environment with relaxed atmosphere, lower prices and bigger capacity.
