Vitorlás in Füred could definitely compete for the title of oldest and most venerable restaurant around Lake Balaton, as it is housed in the building of the first Balaton sailing club in the centre of the Füred corso, where Tagore Promenade and Zákonyi sétány meet, by the piers of the marina. It comes as no surprise either that the walls are decorated with ship parts and design plans instead of cartwheels and geranium.

Traditional Hungarian dishes and Italian favourites, such as pizza, sit harmoniously side by side on the menu. On warmer days at the end of winter, sit out on the terrace and drink a cup of coffee in the company of the István Bujtor statue and fellow early sunbathers.

In spring 2015 theexhibition showcasing the history of sailing, called Vitorlázeum, was opened on the floor above the restaurant, where visitors can find pictures, audio recordings and touchscreen information system, a spectacular and interactive map of Balaton and various tools and gadgets related to sailing history. The storm simulator is an especially interesting feature of the display, which lets visitors experience what a Balaton storm feels like.
