Paletta Bistrobar & Vinoteca is only a few minutes' walk from the Balatonboglár railway station and Highway 7. The building is accessible from the street as well as from the direction of the marina. Looking at it from the outside, the place looks like any cool, urban bistro: the symbiosis of huge, shady planetrees, colourful paper lanterns, pallets and herbs, a modern and tasteful design with an abundance of natural materials.
Stepping inside, you’ll not only feel the trendy urban vibes, but the Balaton spirit as well: from behind the colourful sail-like dividers you have a splendid view of the Balatonboglár marina, and you can even hear the clinkering of the ships moored outside. The setting: lush flower beds, blue-and-white sailing boats, wooden planks and the water of the Balaton, of course, which is an angry green colour one minute, and a calm blue the next. This is what you get served at Paletta, together with the pastrami hamburger, which is made from ingredients supplied by Hungarian, if possible local, small producers.
The hamburger, the pride and joy of Paletta, is by no means the only delicacy you’ll find here: a cup of coffee in the morning goes perfectly with any of the cakes from their seasonal selection, which changes daily. In terms of drinks you have a lot to choose from: a wide range of wines, delicious coffees, and various fröccs and lemonade creations. If you time your visit right, you can sip on a drink that is spiced up with fresh mint and basil leaves picked from the herb box on the terrace, while listening to a live jazz concert.
