Monday, April 6, 2015 — We Love Balaton

April and May are here to wake up those of our favourite Balaton restaurants, which choose winter hibernation instead of all-year-round opening. We revised our list dating from January and found that there are Italian pizza with Pavarotti and real Hungarian pickles cream soup available in April.

Baricska Csárda, Balatonfüred

The planned opening date for Baricska Csárda is 17 April, until then, try Chianti Restaurant, the Veszprém-based brother of Baricska.

Code Zero, Csopak

You'll have to wait until 1 May to see the opening of the containers that cook great beef ribs marinated in Port wine, by then, probably a fleet of sailors will be banging their doors for a manly portion of meat.

Ferenc-pince Csárda, Tihany

Mid-march, one of our favourite Balaton csárdas decided it was time to prepare for the season, so if you happen to pass by, drop in to see whether the pickles cream soup could make it to the menu again. The csárda promises full opening after Easter - only Tuesday remains a rest day, as it's their tradition.

Karolina Fűszerkertje, Tihany

Found (in part) on the terrace of the Echo Residence Hotel, the restaurant ofKarolina Fűszerkertje awaits everyone with an Easter menu of lamb rump and rabbit ragout soup with thyme, hence it's definitely worth a try - plus, granny Karolina won't let you leave hungry and that's a fact.

Mauro Ristorante, Zamárdi

The Italian of Zamárdi, the adored/hated Mauro Ristorante has a countdown clock on its website as huge as the 'Ciao!' its waiters shout at guests entering. closed down for winter. Based on this modest timepiece, we presume the place will start pouring pizzas and Pavarotti arias on us from 22 April.

Márga Bistro

We already wrote about the changes coming to the restaurant of Szent Donát Winery - only the panorama and the wines remain unchanged. Márga wants to deliver superior quality with new wave food and the manager of a top restaurant in Budapest. You can also test the test mode on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays throughout April.

Pajta Gallery, Salföld

The meeting place of artists in Salföld started its spring term at Easter. We wouldn't be surprised if the hundreds of pictures on the walls were joined by new ones this year.

Malackrumpli Bistro, Balatonfüred

The popular Malackrumpli is a typical summer spot, but its opening is less than certain. The managing „black sheep”, Tamás Járosi stated in his year evaluation that they are unsure whether to open, since they are dissatisfied with themselves. We, among many, however have been satisfied with them, so we sincerely hope that Malackrumpli will return.

Paletta Bistrobar and Vinoteca, Balatonboglár

In 2014, we fell in love with the newly opened Paletta Bistro in Balatonboglár with its excellent hamburgers and sail shades. This year, we'll have to wait relatively long for the opening: Paletta is expected to return to business on 1 May. By then, at least the weather will certainly be right for lounging on the patio.
