  • We had an absolutely wonderful wine tasting here. Learned about wine production in Hungary and had some delicious tastings. Service was excellent. Don’t be put-off by it being in a Hilton hotel, they have some historic buildings and the cellar was lovely and felt very authentic. Be sure to book ahead as it’s a small space which fills quickly - we booked over the phone and had no trouble. Thank you!
  • While the wine here is good, the price they advertise is not what they charge. They don't tell you that if you select all red wine you have to pay a premium. It ended up being 40 USD per person for what amounts to maybe 3 glasses of wine, a major rip off. Do not waste your time here.
