Very nice option on Castle Hill

This is a pseudo French restaurant I think. There are some very fine dining options on the menu and they offer 3 course meals with paired wines. They were a little snooty as I was alone but I'm used to this and I'm sure they always prefer to have a larger party. I opted for the boar ravioli to... read more

My wife and I were touring Budapest and had just finished visited the Fishermen's Bastion. We were hungry and tired and turning the corner saw 21. When I saw that it had a Michelin star I told my wife we had to try it. We had such a fantastic meal! My wife had deer stew with fried potato dumplings and... More

After having tried to book a different restauant, our hotel recommended and booked this restaurant. It was about 10 minutes taxi ride from the Cathedral. There is a varied menu as well as daily specials. Food came quick and the restaurant was popular, perhaps more with tourists than locals.

We were looking for a meal and ended up in one of the best restaurant experiences. The presentation was first class, the food excellent and the venue a quiet charming cafe setting outside in the Buda Caste area. The goulash, which is a pre-requisite in Hungary was 'ok', but then came the meals... A wild boar ravioli, thick slices of... More

Typical Hungarian food in a very nice area. Ideal place to eat outside in the summer. The leg of duck was excellent.

Like most places on Castle Hill, 21 offers sidewalk dining and has plenty of tables. They were quite busy yet managed to seat us without a reservation. Their location a block off the main square makes dining very quiet as there is really minimal traffic going by. The staff are all great although it was hard to tell who our... More

This was a wonderful find! The restaurant's decor is casual and trendy at the same time. The traditional hungarian dishes have a bit of a updated twist and simply delicious! The food was fabulously fresha and the service was terrific. Very well priced and we were so glad we chose it for our last night in Budapest.

We were eagerly looking forward to our last evening meal in Buda and had high expectations on the restaurant. We were initially greeted with enthusiasm by the staff however as the evening progressed the waiter became more and more miserable to the extent it brought our lively party of 9 down with a bit of a bump and left us...

Excellent in all respects. Service was good. Chicken Paprikas was as good as Grandma's; veal stew was indescribably good. All very affordable.
