One of Malta’s premier restaurateurs has just had his flagship Budapest restaurant named as the Best in Class in Fine Dining Restaurants according to diners and editors in the Hungarian capital.
Marvin Gauci, the brain behind other top Maltese restaurants like Tarragon, Buddhaman and Dinner In The Sky, spoke to Lovin Malta about the excitement of winning the award.
“I am so honoured to receive this prestigious award,” Gauci said. “I want to start by thanking the entire Caviar & Bull team to have made this possible to be awarded Best Fine Dining restaurant in Budapest. I’d also like to thank all of you that believed in our restaurant and our brand.”
The gala event was held in the heart of Budapest, hosted by the Best of Budapest publications
There were over 420 attendees at the gala dinner, with some of the biggest names in the Hungarian hospitality industry in the room.
Special guests included Alexandra Szalay-Bobrovniczky, Deputy Mayor of Budapest, Dávid Farkas, Deputy CEO for Tourism Strategy at the Hungarian Tourism Agency, and Tamás Flesch, President of the Hungarian Hotel and Restaurant Association.
Peter Freed, Founder of the Best of Budapest & Hungary quality assurance system, congratulated this year’s special awardees, winners of the Best in Class awards and those receiving special recognitions.
This latest award comes ahead of some very big moments for Gauci – rumours abound that he is being eyed for a possible new series with broadcasters like Netflix, and ahead of the launch of a new international franchise of restaurants that will entice the five senses in a futuristic take on the food experience.
