“Our favourite restaurant in Budapest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

We recenly stayed in Budapest for four days and came to the Borkonyha twice. It was our favourite restaurant. The food and service was first class, with an excellent choice of traditional Hungarian dishes with a modern twist. Our waiter was most knowlegable about Hungarian wines and recommended two first-class selections.

You can eat outside (great for dinner) or inside, in air-conditioned bliss (great for lunch).

Great value for money as well (especially when compared to Dublin restaurant prices).

I highly recommend it.

“So good I wanna lick the plate”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012 via mobile

OK. First things first: my and my husband travel the world and taste excellent food where ever we ger the chance.
Borkonyha made me wanna lick the plates. The food was amazing and we got a perfecr wine to the starters and the main courses. The food is the modern Hungary. Forget everything about Gulasch soup.

“Excellent - definitely worth it......”

Fantastic food and atmosphere. Couldn't fault it.

I pre- booked by email because seemed always busy which must be a good sign.

Go and enjoy...

Thanks

“Small disappointment”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2012

Maybe I had to big expectations. I was expecting outstanding dinner all in all it was just ok.

Food was fine, quite tasty but nothing special, price reasonable, for me no Hungarian flavor.

Restaurant was not full, there were few table free inside. I was sitting outside – what was definitely mistake.
There was very strange and not nice smell from basement windows, tables were on narrow sidewalk.

Service was ok but again nothing special, I can say professional but not customer friendly.

Overall experience ok, but there is many restaurants which are just ok …

“excellent food avarage service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

try the pigeon it's fantastic
the service is just a bit better than acceptable
it’s a bit expensive for a Hungarian but it’s avarage for a western guest
