Great street to find all kinds of ethnic restaurants. For the high end shoppers there are some very unique boutiques as well.

Great street with every kind of shop. Comes alive in the afternoon and evening. Really good food here. Avoid this street when the tour buses are in town for the best deals and actual local feel.

I really didn't think this street was something special, few nice looking shops. You can find the St. Peter and St. Paul's Church here.

Paul Street car park very central for shopping or going to the Opera House. A few nice streets of Paul Street with a lovely selection of restaurants. Great atmosphere. Very close to Opera Lane which is a great shopping street

kbzs Thank you very much for the reference. I've been to that guided tour, and it was amazing ! The guide was full of information and knowledge about the book, the city at the time, about the author and lots of fun facts made this guided tour to be one of the highlights of my trip to Budapest.
Amicus (7 Replies)
Hi I just wanted to write a quick message regarding Amicus on Paul Street. We were there Saturday night for my boyfriends dinner. 12 of us in total. The atmosphere, food and service were very good. We were all very happy. I would eat there again, may have been a small bit cramped where we were, but the staff are very helpful, & attentive. One point to note they do include a 12.5% service charge for tables of 6 people +. its marked on the menu. When booking for 7pm they told me we had...More

According to Hungarian wikipedia, "A Pál utcai fiúk" (The Paul Street Boys/ No Greater Glory in English translation) is translated to Dutch, the title is "De jongens van de Pálstraat" if it's any help to you. I cannot help you to find the English/Dutch version in Budapest. I think the book is still mandatory reading in elementary school in Hungary. It's quite popular, several movies are made from this novel, even in English language. The story is about the life of scoolboys in the...More
