TASTE BALATON – 08 – 17 / 03 / 2023

TASTE BALATON, a 10-day gastronomic and cultural festival, harmonizes the finest restaurants, hotels, and cultural events across the Balaton region. This collaborative effort involves 26 Balaton restaurants, gastronomic hotels, cultural institutions, wineries, and Balaton Bike 365. From March 8 to March 17, 2024, each participating restaurant will showcase an exclusive menu and program, available only during this period, ensuring each event is distinct and unrepeatable.

At the heart of the festival lies the idea that, alongside the exclusive tasting menus, each restaurant curates a cultural program. TASTE BALATON presents a diverse array of daytime activities and evening entertainment, featuring over 100 special programs. Beyond exceptional gastronomic experiences, guests can delight in concert dinners, book and fashion presentations, gastronomic tours, as well as exhibitions and workshops.

TASTE BALATON deviates from the conventional festival model; our objective is to let restaurants showcase themselves within their own distinctive environments— their ‘homes.’ During this event, it is the guests who embark on a journey, exploring and discovering the diverse restaurants of Balaton. We deliberately selected early spring for this occasion, confident that Lake Balaton has just as much to offer guests during this season as it does in the summertime.

As a proud partner of the TASTE BALATON festival, Balaton Bike 365, the premier service provider of cycling experiences, eagerly awaits those seeking an active adventure. With multiple pick-up points, Balaton Bike 365 organizes thematic gastronomic tours around Lake Balaton during the festival.
