At this restaurant you will not have a fancy dining experience. The food you will be served, is tasty homemade hungarian food. You get value for your money.

Very good traditional hungarian kitchen. Low mid prices, absolutely worth it. Large portions!!! Recommended if you searching for a non tourist trap hungarian restaurant.

I have eaten at Zold Kapu for many years. I enjoy it most because of the fantastic fried chicken - the best in Budapest I have eaten across the years. The menu is large and serves traditional Hungarian fare - with a lot (maybe too much) fried food. And in the cool months when the garden is closed, sure enough... More

Went there for a farewell party with my family. It is a traditional Hungarian restaurant, but it has vegetarian options as well, which was nice. I cannot stress how huge the portions are! You can't get through a 3 course meal for sure. Skip one or ask for half portions on the main course. :) The food tastes great, the... More

We often visit Budapest and we always go back to the Zöld Kapu restaurant in Buda. The garden area is quite lovely with green benches, very particular. The food is delicious, typical hungarian kitchen; they offer almost every kind of typical hungarian schnaps. Go there only if you are really hungry because the plates are enormous for a very very...

Being a Hungarian, I fully share what has been said about those two ugly specimen, ruining this town, cabdrivers and restaurant hyenas. Policemen are xtremely unfriendly too A hundred % of them speak no foreign language. The best Idea, not to ask them and take no taxi. This restaurant is -on the contrary inexpensive, and offers huge portions for those... More

I really can recommend this place if you want to eat really tasty hungarian foods! The portions are enormous - we always ask for "doggy bag" to take the rest of the food away - and the food was always fresh and tasty. I always go there on summertime or springtime as you can sit outside. We were there several... More

This is a typical Hungarian food, but the taste and size of your dish will be above your expectation. I think only a few people can eat a 3 course menu at this restaurant. If you are on a diet for gate to follow my recommendation.

The very typical Hungarian restaurant where everything is as it was 20 years ago, because the owner does not like to invest. The entire place smells of oil used many times for deep fried dishes, the portions are big but not tasty at all. The staff is extremely impolite and rude. This used to be a nice place a decade...

We were recommended to try this restaurant as serving the sort of food my Hungarian grandmother would have cooked. I doubt if she would have served portions half as generous, or half as good. It was just the sort of place I was hoping to find. Entirely without pretention, serving a huge variety of food in simply gargantuan portions. We... More
