What they call Hungarian food

This is 'typical' Hungarian food: heavy on meat, fat and starch. Not the finest dining exeperience, but you'd want to come here for a filling meal at a reasonable cost. The place is not in the city centre, not sure if it's worth the extra journey though.

Location in the business and residential district of Buda. Nice outdoor seating. Traditional wooden booth and benches inside. Large selection of traditional food. Poor selection of wines. Good food.

Kind of stumbled upon the place. Local restaurant but they have an English menu. Huge portions. Good food, think it's actually a Czech restaurant. Would highly recommend

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.

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
