“I will never forget the moment when I saw this fairyland…
I stopped as if my feet had taken root.”

Károly Eötvös


Casually elegant, understandably contemporary, classically Hungarian, romantically intimate. Fine but not dining, it is bistro. All this together is Tihanyi Vinarius, and much more. The view of the Inner – Lake, the vineyard, the basalt, and the limestone that is the backdrop, is just the beginning. The real surprise is the peace and quiet, even though it is only a few minutes from the centre of Tihany.

Here you’ll find a 200-year-old press house and cellar, where the wines of the Benedictine Abbey used to be made and rested for many years. But it is the past! Now the press house is a restaurant and a show kitchen, and the cellar is an event room. There you can also see the wine cellar, with the inside of the hill as it was formed by the last axe blow in 1822. There are still 5,000 bottles of Somlói Juhfark sleeping here behind the carved barrel bottom, from the last total solar eclipse. They won’t wake until the next one.

Of course, there’s plenty of wine for those who can’t wait until then. Among them, many bottles around the Balaton from smaller wineries. Folly, Guden Kisbirtok, Tánczos, Szászi, Szabó and Son, Bökő Dávid are just a few of the local wineries on the wine list.

The food selection is refined and varied. Classic Hungarian and international dishes, homemade desserts, and a wide range of specialities. All dishes are the fruit of the collaboration between Executive Chef Imre Vadász and Head Chef Dávid Horváth. In this kitchen they even use the secret spice called passion.


Spending time here, enjoying the food, the wine, sitting on the terrace and listening to the silence is an experience that makes you say, “We’ve seen it all on the North Shore.”

“Every wine is social and truly reveals its essence when enjoyed in the company of others.”
Béla Hamvas

Wine tasting

Back in 1822, the building opened its doors as the cellar of the Benedictine Abbey. Over the course of nearly two centuries, wine has been a constant presence in the life of Vinarius, and that remains true to this day. The presence of wine can be felt from the moment of arrival, as vineyards surround the restaurant. Stepping into the wine house and then into the cellar further intensifies the feeling. Barrels, wine bottles, and a wine vault await the guests, creating a truly immersive wine experience.
