DESTINATIONS hungary balaton Dining Bacchus


At Bacchus you can enjoy a great dinner in an atmospheric rustic hotel restaurant. The menu contains the traditional dishes of the Zala County, fishes of the Lake Balaton and game specialties and wines from the region. The hotel has a wine cellar as well, where wine tastings are organised.


Lake Balaton is a gourmet’s heaven. The lake is surrounded by resorts devoted entirely to entertainment and leisure. Resorts such as Balatonfüred, Keszthely, and Siófok are crammed with restaurants, bars, cafes, and nightclubs offering mostly sturdy, meaty Hungarian cuisine, although Italian restaurants are extremely popular, too. The lake is home to 40 different kinds of fish and many of these make their way onto the table. The volcanic soil around Badacsony produces some of the best white grapes in the country, and the wine makes a superb accompaniment to fish suppers.
