Wine lists compiled in a self-serving manner. Overrated Hungarian items. Wines that are liked only by the sommelier but do not go well with the dishes. What mistakes can we discover on a wine list when we go to a restaurant? Wine expert Attila Fiáth draws attention to a few important aspects.

“Summer in Budapest is sweet and sunny, and fun is always in the air! There’s joy of relaxation because it’s the vacation season, a period of good times with friends and family outdoors, moments to chill on terraces or along the banks of the Danube. For this year’s summer inspiration, we chose to represent the many frivolous faces of SUMMERTIME FUN” Read the inspirations behind our new summer menu.
Baraka is one of the most exciting restaurants in Budapest. It was one of the first restaurants which was focused on fine dining cuisine in Hungary. Year after year Baraka’s cuisine is recommended by the Michelin Guide. In the following video we will demonstrate how we are bringing our amuse bouches to the next level. Our talented chef prepares macarons and cakepops placed into a wheatgrass base, but these flavours might surprise you. The amuse bouche is a small teaser of the culinary journey before you.

Since opening Baraka in 2001, we can say that our concept has changed over the years. We are constantly learning about the business, our customers, and how Budapest’s culinary scene is evolving. One of the most important things lately that we have learned is, even after all these years, how much we still have to learn.
Peter Kovács has recently returned to his homeland of Hungary after several incredible years of honing his wine skills abroad in Aspen, Colorado. He has developed a broad knowledge of International wines and has brought his years of sommelier experience back to Budapest, and quickly joined Baraka’s team. He searched for a fine dining establishment that would allow him to use his expertise in international wines and at the same time explore the exciting developments with the wine scene here in Hungary. His passion and wide knowledge for wines from around the world help Baraka create some of the most interesting wine pairings that work wonderfully with our eclectic menu.
