Émile – Buda’s new culinary centre. The quality of Gerbeaud and Onyx have arrived in Buda, located in a villa built between 1921 and 1928. Here, guests can enjoy a gastronomic experience the likes of which is still relatively unknown in Hungary. The Émile villa is home to a restaurant, a confectionery and a cafe, and a bar. The style of the restaurant is unique: it is neither fine dining nor bistro fare; you can simply enjoy the flavours and the one of a kind service. Émile is named after Émile Gerbeaud, to clearly show the association with its Pest counterpart. The knight in the logo represents “the knight of cocoa” and was registered as a trademark in 1908. The design was hand drawn by Émile Gerbeaud himself. The owners began renovation of the building in 2014 with the goal of creating a true culinary gathering place. Whether it be for breakfast, business meetings, lunch, a light afternoon snack, a family dinner, or take-away pastries, Émile is the solution for Buda. The target customer is families and business people in Buda. There is a separate room for new mothers where they can feed their babies and attend to their needs. The house is under the direction of Anna Niszkács and Attila Niszkács, who, in addition to Émile, maintain their duties at Gerbeaud House. The restaurant manager, Herr Péter, previously worked in the world’s best workshop - Heston Blumenthal’s iconic Fat Duck. He passes on the guest-centric perspective he acquired there to his colleagues at Émile. Chef Gergely Kövér spent five years in Spain and three years in Holland, working at numerous Michelin-star restaurants; sous chef Ferenc Jóvér comes to us from Costes; and Tamás László is in charge of the confectionery.
The style of the restaurant is unique: it is neither fine dining nor bistro fare; you can simply enjoy the flavours and the one of a kind service. The kitchen is open, so the chef’s every move can be followed through.
The cake counter is located at the entrance, where you can find our take-away pastries, and the special handmade Gerbeaud packaged products such as cat tongue, bonbons, cognac cherry and macaron.
The Café - Bar is located in the upper part of the house, where guests can taste our breakfast, pastries and the magical „Émile after- noon tea”. In the evening, we create a real atmosphere of a bar where you can enjoy champagne, cocktails, spirits and life. With its 55 seats the Café - Bar offers breakfast between 8 and 11:30 in the morning, and the „Émile afternoon tea” between 3 and 6 pm. Our guests can enjoy the pastries, wines, cocktails during the entire open time.
