Prime Steak & Wine Budapest

Prime is a downtown Budapest steakhouse that's on par with the top steakhouses around the world, not only in quality, but (unfortunately) also in price. They serve imported premium meats from the United States, Australia, and Argentina, including Prime-grade Black Angus and Wagyu. Prime doesn't dry-age its meats, instead, they are wet-aged for about two weeks before arriving in the kitchen. You can also try a Hungarian beef, from grey cattle, but it pales in comparison with the imported ones.

The menu at Prime Steak & Wine is restricted to the best cuts: ribeye/ tomahawk, top sirloin, porterhouse/T-bone, and filet mignon. Their specialty is the filet mignon, which makes up most of the steak options at lunchtime, as the larger cuts are only part of the dinner menu. Order the wonderfully creamy and garlicky spinach as a side dish. For wine, guests can choose from 200 bottles of excellent, largely Hungarian wines. The setting is formal, but the dim lighting helps to create a more relaxed, intimate atmosphere that's best enjoyed during the evening. You can nurse a drink at the cocktail bar, which serves as the centerpiece of the space, if you need to wait for your table.
