Went there for a business dinner and experienced excellent food and very friendly service. The starter with large plates of cold cuts, tuna tartar, goose liver, etc. was amazing and made a full dinner itself. The main courses of fantastic steak (enormous portions), pasta, fish etc. was delicious across the board. Desert was good but not as impressive as the... More

This is what I would call Hungarian tapas with the best quality one could imagine. This is a place you want to go back to over and over again as there is such an amazing choice. The staff is "simpatico" and you just need to have a bit of patience as English is not their first language. Truly a wonderful... More

I grew up in a Hungarian household, so I was familiar with traditional foods. Dining at Bock Bisztro was an amazing and modern punch of fresh, delicious and traditional ingredients. From the appetizers through dessert, the flavors were amazing and beautifully presented. The suggested wines were outstanding. Mom never cooked like this! We dined with my Hungarian cousin, so language... More

I love this place. I have been there several times and they can always surprise me. They cook modern Hungarian food always with a twist, but still can remain authentic. The portions are generous and the prices are ok. Good value.

We had a dinner there. The waiter was quite a person with humor, we enjoyed our time there. The room is perhaps a bit too small. I arranged 3 days in advance only available slot was 2100 on a Monday

The restaurant is next to the Corinthia hotel. Not a very glamorous restaurant but it's ok. The food is ok. Lots of meat and some refinement in the presentation. The service was better than expected and the waiters at least smiled and greeted you upon entering. Prices were about £25 per person, All in all I would recommend a visit.

The service is impeccable & reservations are a must. The food was really good. Try the prawns, guinea fowl, fish, & WINE!!! We ended up buying a case of wine to bring back with us to the States. The Hungarian wine is delicious.
