While I was in Budapest I had the opportunity to visit the Four Seasons hotel for dinner at their Kollazs brasserie. If you didn’t know, a brasserie is French for brewery and also typically describes an informal restaurant which serves hearty food. I have to say the initial impression of the styling of the hotel and restaurant were very good! The hotel has a nice classic luxury look and feel. This classic styling flows right into the restaurant.
The bar has a very interesting design and they sport an open kitchen so you can see what’s going on behind the scenes. Pierre is really fond of the design and layout of this place!
We started our feast off with some very unique handcrafted beverages. They put a lot of work into their cocktails and it showed from the presentation along with the magnificent taste. It warmed up my mouth for a workout and put me in a great mood to start with the food! I must say that I could easily visit Kollazs simply for a cocktail. So good! I really can’t stress enough how amazing the drinks are!
The waiter was very amusing and knowledgeable about all of their offerings. We put a lot of our trust in his hands. Living life on the edge. The dish that stood out the most in the entire meal was the muscles which I would recommend you to try!
Another high point in the meal was all of the wine that was served. Pierre didn’t plan on it but he got turnt up (this means slightly inebriated for you folks that don’t understand.) It was irresistible alcohol! I swear I’m not an alcoholic.
Last but certainly not least was the dessert. It was some amazing ice cream with raspberries and a sort of upgraded and luxurious french toast. Phenomenal. Overall, I must say there were many great parts of the meal. Some dishes didn’t get me super excited but I believe that it was more of a personal preference situation because I tried some dishes I wasn’t very familiar with. If anything, it’s definitely worth going even if only for a drink! Give it a shot and let me know what you think!
