We selected the restaurant from reviews from TripAdvisor and were not disappointed, the food was excellent as was the service, the waiter knew his wines and made great recommendations. We found this restaurant great value and totally enjoyed the food.

We have just ate here as it was around the corner from our hotel and not because of trip advisor. No surprise though that it makes the top 10. Our 4 course chef recommendation of poached egg on toast with parma ham sauce, potato soup with crispy carrots, beef medallion with creamy garlic gnocchi and apple souffle with vanilla ice... More

Unfortunately, we are leaving Hungary after four and a half years here. Some of the time has been spent umpiring cricket and the HCA took us out for a farewell meal yesterday. We had never even heard of the Cafe Bouchon before (!) but were very impressed by its character, the friendly staff and the excellent food! My wife had... More

One night, I had too much fun and Unicum in a ruin pub. The next day, I had quite a chunky hangover, but I was determined to add some structure to the day, by having a delicious dinner in the evening. I was part of a party of 9, and was entrusted with a particular role in the booking process.... More

Having arrived late to our hotel, they booked us a table at this lovely family restaurant. The owner served the best tomato jam with garlic bread and then printed out the jam recipe for me! The meals were great, particularly the garlic spaghetti. It's cosy, quietly elegant and not over priced. Shame we were too tired to try dessert but... More

A great place to go for good food in a really friendly atmosphere. We ate from the table d'hote menu listed on the wall. Starting with fruit soup followed by duck and semolina pudding this was a good meal, but it was the service that stood out. He made you feel like were a guest in his house, because it... More

We ate at this restaurant twice and could not fault the meals and certainly not the friendliness and efficiency of the staff. We were given garlic bread together with a tomato paste to munch on whilst waiting for our meals. We had the duck breast with cherries and the beef tenderloin both of which were cooked to perfection. For dessert... More

Excellent service, cozy atmosphere, diverse menu, excellent wine selection, delicious starters and main courses for two of us: duck pate, zucchini soup, veal, and goulash, homemade bread and desserts. Easy to find - near Opera House. Highly recommend!

We really enjoyed our meals and the service was terrific. This restaurant feels like a small local restaurant with a French flare. The owner and staff are extremely accommodating. The only negative for us was that the meals are traditional Hungarian preparations (saucy and rich). The prices were quite reasonable compared to US standards.
