“What a find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Absolutely worth hunting down the backstreets off Andrassay Avenue to find. A delicious saturday lunch to top off a fab weekend in Budapest. Many locals eat here and it gets busy in the evening. The owner is such a helpful chap, he amended everything for me as i have a wheat and dairy allergy. Nothing was too much trouble. Make it a 'must visit' on your trip! Authentic taste of Hungary.. and you'll leave full and satisfied :)

“nice local restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Cafe Bouchon is a nice little gem that sits in the small streets close to the Opera house. It is a small family run restaurant that offers daily "Chef's special" menu. Their soup is awesome, one of the better ones I have had. Would totally recommend this place. Not open on Sundays.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

A hidden gem! Visited after reading excellent reviews and was not disappointed. Food was reasonably priced, beautifully presented and tasted fantastic. We had the cheapest white wine on the wine list (around £8) and was one of the nicest wines I have tasted. For dessert I had crepe Suzette which was beautifully delivered with flamed Grand Marnier. Staff were really pleasant and nothing was too much trouble. Would definitely recommend.

“Great Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

Superb food in an atmospheric location up near the opera, I would highly recommend. Would have got an excellent review if the wine waiter had not selected a 30 Euro bottle of wine when asked for a recommondation.

“Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

A terrific meal. Terrific food at every turn, great service, a delightful bottle of a Hungarian Bordeaux blend (70% Merlot) -- this is a down home restaurant that serves excellent food at reasonable prices. Not inexpensive but very reasonable for the quality. We are going back for our last night in Budapest, and already looking forward to it.
