Salt received its first Michelin Star in September 2021, and in addition to this it got the Michelin Green Star in 2022. The restaurant is now in the Discovery section of the ‘World’s 50 Best Restaurants’ list.
Salt Budapest was created on the foundations of the traditional Hungarian cuisine, where Chef Szilárd Tóth’s kitchen herbs and wild plants play an important role. Majority of these is collected by the chef himself in the countryside, the rest is produced by farmers. Everything in the dishes is
freshly pickled and fermented.
Our poultry products come from Szilard’s own family meat manufactury from Szatmár.
Bread is a prominent part of the Hungarian food culture, and it is baked and served by us every day.
Alongside the meals, friendly hospitality defines the time and atmosphere of a meal spent together as if it was just a family dinner in the countryside.
The unique interior also contributes to this experience:
the Chef’s table stands in the middle of the restaurant so that guests could easily have a few words with the hosts.
The two hosts – the Chef and the restaurant manager, Máté Boldizsár – often serve the dishes themselves. We serve home-made fresh juices and wines from the best European wineries. In addition to the classics, we also offer natural wines. When choosing our selection, Máté Boldizsár dedicates special attention to locality, sustainability, and naturalness. Wines from the most important wine regions, well-known as well as smaller, organic wineries are also represented on our wine list. Natural and organic wines are the main stars of our wine pairings – Máté believes that these are the most fitting for our dishes – however, those who prefer the classics can choose anything from beautiful Champagnes to full-bodied bottles from Bordeaux from the over 180 wines in our selection.
