“Exceed your expectations!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012 via mobile

I had a romantic dinner here, nice atmosphere and perfect service. We understood straight away we would have enjoy the night. The owner (who speaks fluently 5 languages or more) offer us a nice Hungarian prosecco while waiting for a table. We had a nice Hungarian red wine, a nice main course and a wonderful dessert.. And he also offer us a local spirit at the end of the dinner. Everything was just perfect. I would highly recommend to everybody to have a dinner here!

“like everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

When we found it (the taxi took us happily to somewhere completely different) the food was very good, the wine excellent, the service friendly and helpful. If we had been in a hurry it might have seemed a little slow, but we weren't. It was pretty full on a midweek night so reservation is probably essential. I'd very happily go back.

“EXCELLENT, do not miss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

I travel quite a bit for work, 10-15+ countries, 200+ days / year and eat in a wide variety of restaurants and I can honestly say our meal at Cafe Bouchon was one of the most enjoyable I have had in quite a long time - anywhere in the world.

We had no reservation and 4 of us walked in at about 8:30pm on a Saturday night and were seated at a very nice table with no problem (though I would recommend making reservations, since there are not a lot of tables here). The restaurant has a relaxed feeling to it, almost like you are eating in someone's home, and it's clearly a "locals" spot as the owner was greeting people by name throughout the evening.

The service is really what made our experience great however. The staff was very accommodating to special requests and very through and thoughtful with their recommendations for both food and wine.

Would recommend this restaurant to anyone and will definitely return!

“A place clearly passionate about their food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

This has to rank as one of the most pleasant dining experiences I've had. Tucked down a side street we visited because of the previous comments and we weren't disappointed. We were warmly greeted and it became very clear very quickly that they knew their food. We had indepth explanations with fantastic recommendations. All resulted in a perfect evening - you should go here
