Frankly speaking, I have nothing to do with discovering this place, I was invited by a good Hungarian friend. I have to admit that, having arrived a little earlier, I was not at all impressed by the way this place looked. True, it was lunch time, the middle of the day, not a romantic evening. So, I was a little... More

We headed to this restaurant as it's been reviewed on previous occasions as being good for gluten free. The waiters are lovely and speak incredible English, so it wasn't obvious at first that they didn't understand what I was asking for. They told me it was "not a problem" and brought me a basket full of bread. Once I reiterated... More

Came here after seeing recommendations on trip advisor, we were not disappointed at all. The waiter explained all the dishes. If you have trouble deciding what you want, you can take two smaller portions and that way be able to try two different dishes. The staff is very nice as well. We really enjoyed the broccoli cream soup, the duck,... More

This place happened to be around the block from my airb&b and I'm sooo glad we walked in. Ate dinner there twice and it was fantastic. It's a few blocks off the main streets so it's quiet and lovely inside. Great bathroom signs too. Very friendly waitors and the owner is wonderful to talk to. He told us some history... More

Went for an evening meal. Owner was really helpful with recommendations for wine with food. Plus wine by the glass same as bottle so could have different wines with each course etc. Good was beautifully in both look and flavour would highly recommend this cafe to anyone. True flavour of Hungary.

This was an outstanding evening for the five of us. Not just because the five of us were together but because of the tremendous meal we had at the Cafe Bouchon! We were all very very happy with what we ordered! All of the items that we ordered were explained to us in detail on how they were prepared. In... More

To the review further down who moaned about how much he... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Budapest. The food is fresh, locally sourced and always delicious. The proprietor genuinely enjoys discussing the different options on the menu. And the wine list is fantastic.

Café Bouchon is real gem with a colourful and ever-changing menu. Food is delicious and always carefully prepared. The café has a unique and intimate atmosphere. We really like the service, and especially Lajos the owner, who is great at balancing being helpful and communicative, yet avoiding becoming too familiar. A great place, worth trying.

Thank eatondarrr
