Fantastic, children friendly restaurant outside Budapest!
Actually restaurant Gesztenyés Kert is not located in Budapest directly but in Budakeszi which is approximately 15 kilometers from the city center but as I did it recently with restaurant Kistücsök at Lake Balaton I want to recommend good restaurants I have visited and that does not have to be in Budapest only. So the Gesztenyés Kert is a small restaurant which gets a lot of attention because of the nearby Vadaspark (Wild park) which is just like a zoo but with wild animals such as wolves, deer and so on. By the way kids love it. Nevertheless, the attention is justified because the food, drinks and the service in Gesztenyes Kert are really good and a visit there is a good choice even if you are not going to see the Vadaspark but you happen to be nearby.
In Gesztenyés Kert you can find international dishes on the menu such as Cesar Salad, lamb Italian style or a simple steak but also Hungarian cuisine is offered such as Goulash (Pörkölt) or the traditional Somlói Galuska for dessert. The majority of the food though is something that can be called international. The quality and taste of the food is really fantastic so there is nothing to complain about and even though it appears to be a bit expensive the prices are absolutely justified. Also the arrangement and decoration of the food is what you can find in restaurants all over Europe.
Gesztenyés Kert also offers so called “tasting manues” which are 3, 4 or 5 course menues with a bit of everything, as an example the 5 course menu offers “Duck Fingers on Rocket Salad”, “Red Lentil Soup”, “Garlic Shrimps Ravioli”, “Lamb Italian Style” and as a dessert the mentioned “Somlói Galuska” all together for 6.900 HUF which is around 25€. I think that is a good offer and you will for sure not go home hungry.
Concerning the facilities of Gesztenyés Kert in Budakeszi they have a very nice outside area where you are sitting under Chestnut trees (That is where the name comes from Gesztenye means Chestnut) with plenty of tables, some even under umbrellas and a small but good area for children to play. Inside the restaurant Gesztenyés Kert is really nice decorated and cosy so that there is nothing to stop you from a nice dinner.
