Enjoyable, good courteous service, pleasant surroundings. Popped in on way back to hotel, touted as a must see - so thought why not. Nice atmosphere but in my opinion over priced, could get quality as good if not better from most Hungarian eateries. However, would have to have a full meal here or... read more

The Boscolo hotel itself and the Café New York are so beautiful! Really, it's more a work of art than a café.... I could not stop staring at the beautiful ceiling. My waiter was really great, the food arrived quickly, making it a perfect experience. Yes, the prices are a little expensive, but very worth it.

This coffee house has seen different political systems and is a tradition for many years, thus is worth stopping by for some coffee and dessert! Beautiful interior and very good staff that make your experience even better. Would recommend!

The restaurant is really very pretty. You just can't stop looking at the walls, furniture, ceiling… The food and wine were excellent. I had the chicken and my boyfriend the duck. His portion was a bit small, but dessert made up for it. Trio of New York Cafe cakes is very good, especially the cake with a hazelnut flavor.

This place is so over rated and price with NO service. Then they have the audacity to charge you a 15% compulsory service charge. A tea and cake took over 1 and 1/2 hours and most of this was waiting for service staff to take the order, deliver the food and obtain the bill. Certainly not worth going for any... More

If you want to eat in an absolutely beautiful cafe where your surroundings will leave you in awe, the New York Cafe in Budapest is the place to go. Everything about the inside of this cafe is stunning and pictures do not do it justice. I went with a friend and we both agreed our pasta dishes were good but... More

I would definitely say it is up there. It is not surprising that artist and writers would get their inspiration here. There is a lot of history to this cafe and thankfully to the Boscolo Group restoring this cafe in 2006. The ambience is just soothing and the decor is eye opening. Live piano music playing, our brunch was one... More

A beautiful historical restaurant built in 1894. Should be included on your stay while in Budapest to appreciate the beauty of this restaurant, my pictures do not truly give it justice. Food and atmosphere delightful and service was good.
