Chez Daniel Restaurant (Chez Daniel Étterem) with its French cuisine orchestrated by French chef Daniel Labrosse, smallish quaint terrace and numerous wooden, and brass French cocks brings a glimpse of Provence in Budapest. The restaurant is on the way to or from the Heroes’ square (Millennial Monument, Museum of Fine Arts, etc.) on beautiful Andrassy avenue, which is flanked by Paris-like 19th century buildings.
Chez Daniel is on the list of Top 33 restaurants made by the Hungarian food blog, Chew.hu. Vegetarians watch out for the camembert chaud aux truffes (warm camembert with julienned white truffles). Likewise the cheese platter shows an allegiance to the tenets of French cuisine. Steel on the Food Police blog writes Chez Daniel has “definite highs and some strange and unexplicable lows” – like a marriage with ups and downs.
