Looked on Tripadvisor where to go for our last meal in Budapest and saw this one! It was an easy walk of our hotel so wouldn't be too bad if we couldn't get a table as did mention about reservations. When we arrived we were asked if we had a reservation, so immediately my heart sank as it looked as... More

Thank you TripAdvisor and all who have reviewed this restaurant. This was the best meal of my 5 day trip to Budapest. We were a party of 4 travel weary women looking for delicious food in the area of our appartment. (next to the Opera House) I picked Cafe Bouchon based purely on the TA reviews. The restaurant is beautiful,... More

Family of four arrived without a reservation and were welcomed without a problem. The staff are attentive and knowledgable and were happy to guide us through the menu. We wanted a real taste of Hungary and feel that we really got it here. The food was wonderfully prepared and accompanied by some great local wine. The restaurant felt very homely... More

Staff very accommodating and service spot on. Quaint with a rustic and relaxed atmosphere. Really enjoyed the great selection of food, written in many languages. "The Hungarian wine is a must to try".

What a wonderful place. We specifically sought it out purely based on reviews we'd read prior to our visit and couldn't have been more happy with our decision. The staff were very accommodating and friendly with helpful (but not pushy) suggestions for both food and wine choices. And the food ..... Fabulous! We enjoyed the experience so much that we... More

Convinced by all the good TA reviews, we chose this restaurant and weren't disappointed at all. As others said, it serves upscale French bistro-cuisine in a warm, cosy, dark atmosphere. As apero I highly recommend their dry Pannonhalmi Salve Tokaji or the Hetszolo Szaroz Szamorodni Tokaji. My wife chose, upon the staff's recommendation, a salmon carpaccio marinated in honey and...

We recently had dinner at Cafe Bouchon. We arrived late having gotten lost trying to find the place. When we arrived the owner was very sensitive to our frustration and served us two glasses of sparkling wine on the house. He then went through all the menu choices with us providing details about each selection. He continued to look after... More

With my friends visiting , I invited them to Cafe Bouchon, which the place is in the central and a lot of bars around. We ordered a full plate of starter, and different main course, like chicken breast , veal neck and pork, but a common issue is the food is too salty for us. However, we got the best... More

The service was absolutely fantastic, the restaurant was very romantic and welcoming. The location was easy to find and located next to numerous good bars/pubs etc. our only complaint was that our duck was over cooked and the food very salty. Our starters were lovely it was only our mains that weren't to our taste buds, but the staff were... More

We stopped in the Cafe Bouchon between lunch and dinner and were treated to excellent service and food from the manager/owner/waiter.
