The Zappa was the first of the restaurants to establish itself on what is now the string of eating places and bars stretching from Mikszáth Kálmán tér along Krúdy Gyula utca to the corner of Horánszky utca in Pest's increasingly renovated and hip inner 8th district (the Palotanegyed or Palace District). With this part of Krúdy Gyula utca now closed to traffic, the Zappa is a quiet spot, the real attraction of which is its extensive outside sitting area under umbrellas on the square.
Excellent Central European dishes including duck, schnitzels, sausages, salads - including a particularly good gherkin salad - and apple strudel. Good cold beer and white wine. Very friendly efficient service and that uniquely Hungarian endearing trait of refusing to accept tips because, they'll tell you, the service has already been included in the bill.
Only suggestion: they have large outdoor fans for hot weather but not the ones that generate icy mist and they should consider that these would make the Zappa even more popular. A feast for seven people came to an amazingly reasonable A$137.
