Our restaurant seating capacity of 120 people is divided into two parts. To the left of the main entrance, on the corner of Nyár utca and Dohány utca is the restaurant`s lounge for guests who would like to have a drink, chat and have less time for culinary pleasures at that particular occasion. To the right of the main entrance, is the central section of the restaurant, which is kept with the preserved stylistic features of the former Hungária Spa and radiates an art nouveau ambience.

On the menu of the new restaurant ARAZ, the finest masterpieces of the Hungarian and French cuisine can be found and prepared for you with the most modern kitchen technology-related procedure of the XXIst century by the chef, Áron Barka and his team.

The French cuisine is at least as exciting for the lovers of flavors as the exploration of a new continent for a globetrotter. The unique harmony of flavors, odors and sight is perhaps best expressed on a plate filled and decorated with French food. Uniquely rich basic materials, unbelievably fresh ingredients, extremely rich fantasy and the aspiration for maximal harmony of flavors characterize the French cuisine, from which we offer the most exciting dish phenomena prepared with the most modern technology for the lovers of flavors, exploration and new adventures. The unique flavors, the well-defined seasoning, and the typically abundant combinations of the Hungarian cuisine are inviting the guests starving for a unique flavor-experience to an exciting gastronomic adventure. Our kitchen – just as our language or music – strongly differs from the neighbouring and western nations, and it is at the same time at least as dominant in our national consciousness as our national anthem or flag. Although a Hungarian kitchen can not exist without paprika, gulyás or stew, it is much richer than this: dishes of the ancient periods coupled with the most modern kitchen technology-related procedures – that is what we offer you on our Hungarian menu.

In 1996 a foreign-owned company purchased the sites, and wished to build a 210-room thermal spa hotel in the place of the Hungária Spa and the former Continental Hotel, which by then had been razed to the ground, preserving the spa’s main façade and first staircase. In September 2001 the relevant authorities did not approve the demolition, and asked for guarantees regarding the protection of the building’s main facade and first staircase. The committee for the protection of the city image ordered the investor to carry out measures to protect the substance of the building within half a year. Those measures were not carried out and in fact the rear swimming pool area collapsed as a result of the owner’s earlier demolition work, so in summer 2002 the building was declared a safety risk and the owner was obliged to fully demolish the entire rear tract. In summer 2004 the National Office of Cultural Heritage ordered the interim protection of buildings at risk in the area of the former Pest Jewish ghetto, including the Hungária Spa. On February 7, 2005 the remaining section of the spa was declared a listed building.

In the 1920s the Hungária Spa entered the ownership of Ingatlanbank. In the Nyár utca wing of the spa Continental Hotel was opened, the public spa on Klauzál utca was demolished, and in its place a six-story art deco block of flats was built in 1929 based on the plans of László Vágó (today Dohány utca 46.). In the remaining art nouveau-style part of the building, the Kamara Motion Picture Theatre opened, which from the 1950s made way for several theatres operating for relatively short periods of time. Performances were given there by the Bányász (later Honvéd) Theatre, the Fővárosi Nagy Varieté, and finally the Tarka Stage until 1963. From 1965 the neighbouring Continental Hotel used certain parts of the increasingly neglected former Hungária Spa, but when the hotel closed its gates in 1970, the spa building became more and more rundown.

In 1897, the Ringer family acquired the Hungária Spa, which had several bathrooms, four guestrooms and a relaxation garden and turned it into a bathing complex, meeting the modern requirements of that time.

In the 1820s the owner of the site where the Hungária Spa later stood, the silk trader, András Gamperl, discovered cold water rich in mineral salts while digging a well, and on May 23, 1827, he opened the Gamperl Iron Spa. However, the 1838 Pest flood, washed away that first building, and the Pest residents began to refer to the rebuilt spa by the name of Hungária from the 1840s. At that time and up until the 1920s, the spa consisted of a huge block bordered by Wesselényi utca, Nyár utca and Klauzál utca (on the plots at Dohány utca 42 and 46 today). Around 1890, the Nyár utca wing was reconstructed significantly based on the plans of Imre Novák, and the bathhouse operating earlier with just 15 tubs was expanded.
