Enjoy a taste of history and indulge in an unique dining experience. The only restaurant in the fabulous castle of Eger, Restaurant 1552 is a true dining landmark in the region, much loved by locals and visitors to the city alike. Our authentical, yet modern, friendly interior will immediately make you feel at ease.
Alongside the best of the Hungarian cuisine and Turkish dishes you’d expect to find in such a historic setting, our new menu also includes items like Angus beef tenderloin, and many more starters and mains.
Head Chef Mr. Matyas Hegyi had been trained in upscale, busy restaurants in Budapest. Later on he decided to explore the treasures and trends of international hospitality and gastronomy. Among other locations, Matyas pleased his thirst for innovations and creative food concepts by working for Michelin star and Rosette-rated restaurants in England which opened up the impressive fine dining world of French and international cuisine for him. He has a special attraction to game dishes, and is dedicated to utilize the wide variety of high quality local produce that this region has for fine food enthusiasts to offer.
Like the defenders of the castle in 1552, our restaurant team is dedicated to bring about something very special. A memorable experience for a business lunch, dinner, an unrivalled family occassion in the restaurant or even a private romantic dinner for two in the bastion 20 meters above the Dobo square with your own waitstaff and with the best view of the city.
We take pride in creating great food, pairing them with a careful selection of quality wines or top-of-the-line palinkas, and serving you the best coffee in town. We look forward to hosting you soon in the castle, above the city!
