The Bagolyvár Restaurant (the name means Owl's Nest) was opened by
Károly Gundel in the year 1913. Its cuisine features Hungarian homemade
food. The building is a Transylvanian-style turreted cottage, right next
to the Budapest Zoo. The concept is that all the good tastes in life
are associated with women, so the Bagolyvár is one of the few
restaurants in the world where only women work (although the last time
we were there, the hammered dulcimer player was a man). The restaurant
and its garden together can accommodate about 170 guests.
