“Vaci Street”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012 via mobile

This is the main predestrian street. It is amazing. There are all the top brand boutiques there. You will want to shop till you drop. Then you can relax in one of the lovely cafe bars, have a coffee and watch the world go by.

“avoid tourist crowds!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

way too touristy. move to surrounding areas, prices get cheaper and food quality gets better. plus you avoid intruding waiters yelling at you in your (?) mother tongue while walking on the street.

Very beautiful buildings, nice promenade and a lot of shops. Many restaurants - be careful Gulasch soups are not the same everywhere.

“Overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Seems that this street visit only tourist, there are almost only shops with souveniers and restaurants, both are overpriced compared to the local prices. You can have a better dinner somewhere else (see tripadvisor recommendation).
