Prime Steak & Wine Budapest

Prime is an upscale steakhouse in downtown Budapest, on par with the top steakhouses around the world, not only in quality, but, unfortunately, also in price. The restaurant serves premium imported meats ribeye, porterhouse, top sirloin from the U.S., Australia, and Argentina, including prime-grade Black Angus and Wagyu. While steak in Hungary was never a major part of the diet, you can also try Grey cattle, a native breed.

To help you ease into your meal, a selection of more than 200 bottles of top Hungarian wines are also available. The dark interior fittings can lend an overly formal ambiance to the space, but the tables near the oversized windows feel more intimate. You can nurse a drink at the cocktail bar if you need to wait for your table.
