Based on the ground floor of Hotel Rum, the fine dining restaurant Salt, is where Chef Szilárd Tóth’s kitchen herbs and wild plants play an important role. Majority of these are hand-picked by the team and the chef himself from the Hungarian countryside, then freshly pickled and fermented. Even the poultry comes from the chef's own family meat manufacturer and the way in which he brings together these fresh ingredient’s has won Salt their first Michelin Star in September 2021.
Expect an attentive experience, where the Chef's table is placed in the middle of the restaurant, so you can watch dishes being prepared and easily approach.
