In addition to discovering the Balaton’s beaches, sights and hiking trails, those who also want to explore the food this wonderful part of the country has to offer can gain new experiences. A host of experiences welcome hungry travellers with good taste, from waterfront fish fries to fine dining, and from lavender beer to Badacsony wines.
A gastro-revolution by the lake
While a few decades ago, most visitors identified Lake Balaton with classic beach food and classic Hungarian dishes in taverns, in recent years a real gastronomic revolution has taken place on the shores of the lake. More and more restaurants and bakeries have opened around the lake. They are offering modern, high-quality experiences, and their chefs and bakers are experimenting to transform and rethink traditional recipes. In the past, the Káli Basin was a favourite Balaton destination for gourmet travellers, but today you can find places that serve guests who are out for even more extreme taste experiences everywhere around the lake. True Balaton restaurateurs do their work with heart and soul and use local ingredients to prepare special dishes with great care.
