Ate here twice in a one week trip to Budapest. Small and covivial. Food is good and wine is excellent. Portions are large, so share.

Although in a slightly "seedy" part of the city this lovely little café well deserves a visit. It is rare to have the owner serve you and do it with such enthusiasm and you can see why. From start to finish ( and I mean the bill !) this is a great advert for the city and well worth the... More

Stumbled into this place as it was near my family's accommodation. There were only 2 other tables with guests, so we were worried about the quality of the food. This proved to be unfounded, and we had our best meal in Budapest. Food was well priced and the service was impeccable as well. This deserves a higher ranking on TripAdvisor!

Ate there two nights ago, ate there last night and most likely will be eating there tomorrow. How this wonderful little restaurant isn't in the top five on TA I'll never know. Imaginative Hungarian food, beautifully cooked eaten a cosy, intimate atmosphere should mean this place is packed to the rafters every night - so why isn't it? For anyone... More

I keep going to Cafe Bouchon whenever I come to Budapest. The place offers great food and service in a beautifully decorated and relaxing space. Prices are very reasonable, too. Never found any reason to complain.

Cafe Bouchon is a lovely small restaurant with excellent service. We showed up at 4:30 and were served as delicious a meal as we would have gotten at an actual dinner hour. My dinner partner said she's never had better risotto - not even in Italy.

Came here with my sisters today and we had the best Hungarian gastronomical experience! Try the sponge cake with dark chocolate and cream to end your meal to perfection. We added decaf cappuccino too :) Oh, and the service was on point! Love!

My partner and I have been to Budapest twice in the last year. Each time we make an imperative stop to Cafe Bouchon. We both just love it. The food is wonderful, perfectly formed and explained in fluent English. I endeavor to try a different dish each time, the chicken is beautiful as is the pork. On the occasions we've... More

We ate here at the strong recommendation of our rental host. So far the most disappointing meal of our trip, just don't understand the hype. Both entrees were just OK, my pork tenderloin was just average. My wife ate 1/4 of her fish. Very warm in the restaurant, really felt like they are used to pushing people through here (perhaps...

Was looking forward to my dinner here as this cafe restaurant is recommended in so many travel guides and has a good TA rating. The waiter who served me was fantastic, patient in explaining all the menu options, kudos to him, not many restaurants treat solo diners as well. I guess I chose the wrong menu - degustation with 4... More
