Our last meal in Budapest was made extra special by our incredible waiter at this restaurant. Food was of extreme quality and wine matched perfectly. Go here.

Great place for a nice dinner! Made reservations and arrived early and was able to be seated. The music was excellent- live music with 2 persons, guitars-melodic and not too loud with amiable tunes.

The food here was amazing, we would compare it to when we have dined at Michelin star restaurants. The staff were lovely and atmosphere very relaxed. Would definitely recommend! The restaurant is pricey for Budapest but compared to London prices that we are used to it was amazing value!

Very good food, service and friendly helpful staff. Not open on a Monday, and worth making a reservation as walk ins will be limited and you will be disappointed if you do no visit this lovely restaurant.

This is the second time I visit this restaurant, and I liked it even more the second time around. I have had better food elsewhere, but it is by all means real good. It is the atmosphere that make this my favorite restaurant in Budapest. Its really cosy, with live gitarplayers and friendly staff, and you feel really welcome.

Our absolute favourite restaurant in Budapest.. Fantastic, interesting food. Charming and attentive staff that takes care of you, in a very nice way, the minute you step inside the door Lovely atmosphere. A very charming place all in all. We can certainly recommend the Borsso Bistro. You probably need to book a table in high season. Very popular. G&M Sweden

Having eaten in a few Hungarian eateries by the time I visited this Bistro I was just a tad 'over goulashed'! This place is a delight. The staff are attentive, the ambience is good and the food was exceptional. A goose liver terrine just melted in the mouth and the ox cheek was one of the best things that I... More
