Cute, classic, informal restaurant serving delicious, traditional food. Had scrumptious goose-themed prix fixe, as well as great chicken paprikash. Well priced. A satisfying meal.

This Jewish-style (rather than kosher) restaurant came highly recommended, and we weren't disappointed. The food was fresh and beautifully prepared: our only problem was we couldn't do it justice. We just aren't used to goose liver fried in goose fat and the portions are very generous. Still, we had a great meal and the cost of such excellence was embarrassingly... More

As for the good ratings we gave it a try but must say that we were rather disappointed. Unfortunately we got a table at the room behind the main restaurant, close to the kitchen (by the end of the evening it became really smelly in there). The food itself was very heavy and in our eyes not very tasty. The... More

we ate here on a holiday (1st of May), as a group of 7. the food is very good and there are plenty of options to choose from, as they have both Hungarian and Jewish dishes. there is a 10% service fee included in the bill, main courses are around 10 euro each (including the 10% fee), beers are around...

My Mom was of Hungarian descent and she was a good cook. May her soul rest in peace and may she not strike me dead when I write that the food at Fulemule was much better. (Love you mom.) I ordered the matzo ball soup and my wife ordered bean goulash soup. The flavor was rich and amazing; a bowl... More

Small, family style restaurant in the Jewish quarter. Great value for the money. Food is above average; had the schnitzel and the goulash. Both well flavored; the meat could have been better trimmed or grizzle but small critique for a very cute restaurant

The menu was quite varied and looked very traditional with a Jewish touch - different to anyone else we ate in Budapest. I had the beef goulash which was delicious! Friendly service, although the atmosphere was lacking a little, but great value and I definitely recommend you try this place!

If you like nouvelle cuisne and fancy food,forget it! If you like traditional Jewish food, this is the place to go. I will remember for a long time the goose cracklings, the home--made pickles, the cholent, not to forget the wonderful black cherry palinca! At Fülemüle,which means the Nightingale, the real existential question is no longer "to be or nt... More

The high rating eateries are not open on a Sunday in Budapest, so we thought we would try this place on the strength of the reviews. The venue is cosy and clean but the food is very basic , over salted and very expensive for what it is. The service is functional. The menu is traditional and home cooked but... More
