Gastronomy is our profession, but it is also our life’s passion. For decades we have made it our goal to resuscitate Hungarian cuisine and restore its glorious, pre-war reputation - a thrilling era when Károly Gundel and Auguste Escoffier were colleagues. Slowly, we are re-creating this story. It all began on Fortuna Street in Buda, where an elegant restaurant named Pierrot opened in 1982. In 2017 twelve restaurants, cafés, terraces and two hotels belong to the group. Each has its own personality both in cuisine and in design - in the Buda Castle Gastronomic Quarter and in downtown Pest.
