Café Liszt also offers breakfast to the guests: in addition to the classis egg dishes, the menu includes eggs Benedict, eggs Royale and eggs Florentine, homemade granola with yoghurt and French pastries. A selection of exciting coffee desserts is available all day, and from midday onwards, desserts on a plate are also available.

The Aria Hotel Budapest’s street front turquoise velvet and crystal room and the salon, evoking the atmosphere of elegant libraries and cigar rooms, were designed by Zoltán Varró, a designer who has been awarded the Gold Key Award, the most prestigious international award for hospitality design.

Executive Chef

Viktor Hiermann

Viktor Hiermann gained much of his experience from the culinary tradition of the Aria Hotel. He spent his student years in Austria and after he returned home, continued his career in the center of Buda’s most elegant restaurants, where he began to explore the more modern trends that are still a major part of his current interests. For Viktor the classic French cuisine is a constant inspiritaion: however spectacular his fine dining creations may be, aesthetics never become an end in themselves under his hands. The primary focus is always on creating a harmony of flavours and presenting the natural taste of quality ingredients.
