“GREAT QUALITY AND REAL HUNGARIAN FOOD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

I accidentally found this place after having a dissapointing experience at the Central Market. I visited it 2 times in two days, the food was so good, real Hungarian and not expensive! I would recommend to have the "Business Menu": a 3 course meal included dessert for 5.5 euro. Also the waitress was really nice and made me some good suggestions about the house specialties. Looking forward to come back soon :)

“A hidden gem in Budapest!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

As soon as you step inside Cafe Intenzo, you can feel the warm atmosphere and see how even the smallest details are completely in their own places. You will be welcomed in friendly and homely way. The inside area of the restaurant is pleasant but if you step out into the garden you'll find youself in the middle of the paradise; the tables are situated under the huge trees and the area is peaceful and beautiful.

The food is delicious - simple and from good ingredients skillfully prepared proper food. The portions are large - you do not need a magnifying glass to see what you eat.

You will also get surprised by the very reasonable price of this restaurant!

I found this gem on 2013, in July 2014, our group had a wonderful dinner there. I can not imagine my next visit to Budapest without Cafe Intenzo!

“Great food for a good price in a nice location (garden)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

We had seen some reviews before but did not expect that much more then it should be an ok restaurant, but the food was great! Really great, the service was good and the value for money is easy a 5/5.

Simple enough def. a good option if you are looking for traditional food made well.
