Is the Dohanyi Synagogue the one with the names of the missing written on the walls or am I confused with Prague?

Anyway, we went to Vienna, Prague and Budapest last year. Glad to hear you had a great time. It's a place we resisted going for many years but finally went and look forward to going back.

Did you see a restaurant called Tom George? Did you go? It's right near the 4 Seasons at the Chain Bridge.

Seafox, some men were in jacket and tie, and some in dressy shirt and slacks. I wore a skirt and dress boots. I guess elegant casual sounds about right. Think Lincasanova is right about start time around 6:30 (we had a later reservation). We loved our evening there. I do think it's worth it to try to reserve a table in the atrium area with the soft light and candles.

Pugsly, I do not recall names of the missing on the Dohanyi Synagogue walls. Perhaps we missed that, or it may be in Prague as you mention. The Synagogue tour was very compelling, many interesting details and the place itself is magnificent and cathedral-like.

We don't remember a restaurant in Budapest called Tom George near the Gresham, but to be honest it was so cold we may have missed a lot with our hats and scarves obscuring our vision! As I remember there was also ice on the sidewalks a couple of days, so we were looking down much of the time and focused on not slipping and falling!

We did really enjoy Budapest, but I would like to go back in better weather!

Lincasanova, did you enjoy your evening at the museum dinner? I will look for your trip report!

yes, i did enjoy my evening and would go again with friends who hadnīt been there.

it was a very special night with my mom.. very elegant.. as we were luckily seated in/under the dome area.

it would not be as impressive if you were put in the side room along the windows.

the center dome area is the best place to have the table, so if you go, ask to please be under the atrium area.

the food was good. but it is a little pricey..( 43 euros PLUS drinks, PLUS museum entrance) but again.. it is different to any other restaurant experience, and unlimited buffet. the meats and vegetables were all good, as were the first plates. i found the desserts uninspiring although they were picture perfect!

you can wander around checking out the different rooms of art .. have a bite to eat.. wander some more..

i had eaten there years ago, but only during the day as a snack shop set-up. but on these evenings they turn the place into a candle-lit VIP area.

hope you enjoy it if you decide to go. i would have also liked going to a musical/concert dinner.. maybe next time.
