We came here on our last night visiting Budapest, it was lovely from start to finish. The service was warm and welcoming and the food was delicious. We both had a starter each (the portions were massive) so we couldn’t enjoy the mains as much...as we had liked as we were so full! We know for next time. The pesto pasta was delicious! Really lovely atmosphere, would certainly return if visiting again.More

Out for a walk and decided to stop for lunch. Really nice pasta and pizza. Some beer and sitting in the sun. Staff were excellent. We really liked it here.

The service was excellent, as the waiter (or the owner/manager) approached us immediately and the drinks came in fast. They have a full water bowl outside, so the place is definitely pet-friendly (at least the patio). The food menu looked appealing as well, so I...might give it a try next time I'm in the area; Sophie's is now on my mental manp of the city.More

We had dinner at Sophie last week. The location is brilliant (near the Opera house), the atmosphere warm and the service welcoming and friendly. Above all, the food was very tasty; fresh and with proper ingredients, a must for Italian cuisine. In a city filled...with restaurants on almost every street, it's hard to stand out. But Sophie did for us!More

Just behind the Opera house. An Italian worth a visit. Helpful, friendly waiters. Very tasty food, good wine and a live jazz pianist. Really glad we didn’t follow the tourist stock restaurants....well worth a visit.

From the moment you walk into this beautiful restaurant to the moment you leave you will have a fabulous experience! The food was absolutely amazing, the service was 5* and the atmosphere with the piano player was brilliant. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening here and...would definitely return when visiting Budapest in the future.More

The place is really nice and cosy, the staff is extremely attentive, friendly and helpful. The food is absolutely delightful, we did enjoy it at its fullest, from the starters to the desserts ! It was a real pleasure to have dinner there. Plus, as...I’m French, I was extremely surprised by the « low » prices as the food seams to be really high quality !More

We had breakfast here on a Friday. Ordered Hungarian breakfast and an omelette with mushrooms. Plus green tea and coke. Hungarian breakfast turned out to be scrambled eggs with sausage and potatoes. Was ok but frankly nothing special and very salty. The tea was not...loose but teabags. They first served me a rather burnt omelette so I had to send it back to the kitchen. To be fair they did not object and very quickly made a new one. It looked good so I was really looking forward to it. Sadly it was ruined by an awful amount of salt. Overall the food disappointed. On the positive side the service was friendly and the place has nice interior.More

Had read about this place on tripadvisor and decided to go there for lunch. We didn´t know what to expect, even though the place had gotten really good reviews. The food we enjoyed (and we did enjoy it to the fullest!) was not only beautifully...presented, but tasted extremely good! Highly recommended!More

We went to this brasserie for the brunch, as the restaurant looked amazing from the outside. I always order french breakfast, so was very curious about this one. I ordered croissant, pain au chocolat with butter and jam. The jam and croissant was very nice...as well as the pain au chocolat. But the butter was terrible... I asked the staff if it is a real butter, as it was tasting exactly like a cheap margarine substitute. They told me it is a real butter. I know for many people it is not a big deal, but for me, it really does matter, if they serve the real butter and not the disgusting taste of margarine.. My partner had benedict eggs, which were okay, but the serving looked very cheap, the eggs were a bit overcooked, not really how the real wgg benedict should be. So disappointed, after this experience, not really coming to see this place. You should try the place nearby called bistro Brunch, its much much better and you will not leave disappointed ;)More

Understated elegance. Hungarian food with a French twist. Beautifully plated, good food (not great). Friendly, attentive staff. Reasonable prices. Limited menu which is ok. Best thing is that they don't require reservations on weekends as it seems every other decent restaurant does. The only drawback...is no/few vegetables. I don't think Hungarians eat vegetables.More

We were celebrating our anniversary with my wife in this lovely place with nice live music. Food was also great (burger and duck + tagliatelle) as were the waitresses. Absolutely recommended!
