This is definitely one of the best places to eat in Budapest. Very important to book if you want dinner reservations as we didn't so we chanced to see if we could get a lunch time booking and we were lucky. The staff were really friendly and enthusiastic about their food and home made wine(which was lovely). They gave us... More

We managed to get a table for two in the Zeller Bistro on our last night in Budapest. We were greeted on arrival by the owner and showed to our table. The owner was very passionate about the restaurant and where they source their ingredients from, most of which comes from local small producers and his parents own farm. The... More

Well, we decided to visit the restaurant having in consideration all the posts from "Tripadvisor". If you decide to visit the restaurant, you must reserve before - it can take up to 2 days. It is a very good experience - specially the treatment you will get. The food is a bit unusual, but very tasty. I´m not a person... More

The food was very good (nomnom for the truffle soup!), the ambient is playful. This is definitely one of the places to eat in Budapest in my opinion. A lot of young people, chatting, having fun and great staff, who keeps the vibe alive.

Such a fantastic meal which really did live up to the reviews. The setting was homely and romantic, the food was hearty, filling and delicious, the service was friendly and the fact that you could draw on the paper on the tables with colouring pencils that were provided was a fun novelty feature. A complimentary sparkling drink on arrival and... More

We had pre booked this highly recommended restaurant for dinner one evening and it didn't disappoint. The atmosphere in this cosy bistro was buzzy and vibrant when we arrived and it continued through out the evening. We were welcomed with a glass of bubbly although we swapped ours for a glass of delicious sparkling elderflower having over indulged the night... More

After a disappointing meal last night, I wanted to find a significant improvement. And boy did I manage that! From last night's rank #400+ to rank #1. The comparison couldn't have been more stark. From the attention to detail, through the great wine list, past the excellent food to the quirky decor, not a single detail has been overlooked. There... More

Lovely basement bistro, with friendly, knowledgeable staff / owners, and simple, local, delicious Hungarian food. The local wine was fantastic too, and really nice to be able to try a few before making a decision. By far the best restaurant experience I've had in some time, and all at a very reasonable price. Thanks for a great evening - will... More
