Our shop is located in the heart of the Danube in a corner (District V, Beer House and Molnar street and area) is located adjacent pedestrian street. Intimate restaurant on two levels in the atmosphere of the last century, the center of the ancient atmosphere. The restaurant is located in a small gallery of 8 people business - dinners, meetings, interviews can be a great scene. Masterpieces was home to Hungarian wine - wine tastings, wine dinners framework - which date shall keep the wine lovers. Our wine list only domestic wines from wineries offer you great emphasis on the fact that any of our guests - even just a drink as well - you can taste it. Wine Enthusiast guests can offer custom home wine tasting, which can be a great help in our structured test sheet and a multitude of wines. The menu includes traditional Hungarian dishes as well as international favorites. The cold dishes and desserts that everyone can find the right one for him, and even if not, then cook in mind, think about it and we will make you dinner. We do not insist on the best form, because we have a motto "we cook together and cook together." I hope will soon be among our guests to welcome you and your friends, both!

Perfectly cooked meat and excellent service

We had such a lovely evening at Chef Cafe. Starters are not very special, but still good. Main dishes were wonderful, meat was just perfect! We ordered 5 different dishes and they were all amazing. And the dessert was also mindblowing (triple chocolate) Expect to pay around 20€ per person. This is... read more

Cafe chef was recommended by our hotel as an authentic Hungarian meal. We were overly impressed but the food, service and atmosphere. The restaurant is family run, Father and son on the floor with Mom in the kitchen. The attention to detail is impressive. We had a difficult time deciding what to eat and the staff went over the entire... More

It is easy to see how this is such a well recommended place to eat. The goulash was by far the best we tried whilst in Budapest. Portion sizes for mains matched the ample flavour of the meats and the cheese selection for dessert was authentic and plentiful. Topped off with fantastic attention and assistance from the waiter, this is... More

Stayed in Bohem Art Hotel and we asked them to recommended a traditional restaurant. Two minutes to walk and what a treat. A lovely restaurant, very friendly staff and the food was excellent and great value. A good choice of food for all tastes. It was so good we went again the following night. Certainly worth a visit.

The owner was so amazing and nice. I went in alone on a recommendation, I am not a big fan of Hungarian food and it was such a wonderful surprise. I had homemade noodles. As well as a wonderful salad. The owner offered me suggestions, he even showed me some traditional Hungarian recipes. It was such a pleasant dining experience.

We had our Christmass Diner there. Atmposphere was nice, food was very nice (we had deer), price was normal. As we learn is it a family business and it is very sweet when you see all the family to work together!

Very pleasant meal! The owner took our coats for us when we came in and was very friendly. I ordered the catfish and my friend ordered the pork bbq and the triple chocolate dessert, everything was delicious. We both had a few cokes and paid +~15€/person
