Mandara Modern Italian Kitchen

Mandara Modern Italian Kitchen

The choice of name for the restaurant is special because neither the Mandara (or Indian coral tree in English) nor the special, crested, colourful flower of the tree is known in Hungary. We would like to display the abundance of colour and variety of this special plant at Mandara Modern Italian Kitchen. Mandara Modern Italian Kitchen is open all year round. From September to June, it awaits guests on weekdays as a patisserie, and on weekends as an Italian-style restaurant, also offering our confectionery specialties of course. During the summer season, both our patisserie and restaurant are open every day.

Let the Pictures Speak


Mandara Modern Italian Kitchen

Italian gastronomy is deservedly famous all over the world, its roots going all the way back to the Roman Empire. Like any Mediterranean cuisine, Italian cuisine is healthy yet nutritious as well as delicious, thanks to its use of more vegetables and olive oil.

In the name of variety, try our Italian-style dishes! Mandara restaurant presents unadulterated and traditional Italian cuisine with a slight detour, made from natural and carefully selected ingredients, with the utmost care. Try our chef’s Italian specialties, colourful pasta variations!

Our pastry chef’s pastries are made locally, from seasonally selected ingredients. We make sure to only include the best ingredients, such as using only Belgian chocolate to make desserts, which are free of artificial flavouring and food colouring.

We also cater to special needs, as our menu also includes sugar-, gluten- and lactose-free options, sweetened with dates, so that everyone can indulge themselves in some guilty pleasures at our patisserie.

Mandara Modern Italian Kitchen also offers an alternative for guests who only want a refreshing drink. They can choose from a selection of homemade lemonades, syrup sodas, home-made craft beer specialties, premium drinks and coffee specialties.

There is nothing better than a deliciously sensual espresso or a glass of pinot gris that you can enjoy while admiring the panorama of Lake Balaton in any season of the year.

The waterfront terrace offers a beautiful view of Siófok’s Golden Beach, so in summer you can enjoy your favourite Italian dish in a real seaside atmosphere, accompanied by a glass of fine wine or a refreshing cocktail. In the evenings during the summer season, smooth jazzy, easy listening style live guitar performances set the mood for a genuine beach feeling.
