Delicious food, friendly staff and excellent service. This is what you get at Borsso Bistro. This was my second visit and we were here for dinner with a group of five people. My previous visit was two years ago and then for lunch. Despite it has passed a rather long time between the visits, it makes me very happy to... More

We had dinner at this excellent restaurant serving very imaginative dishes. We had the chicken, pork chop and the rabbit all were wonderfully prepared with great sides. The Hungarian wine was all excellent. The service was great and the atmosphere cozy with live music.

Been there with my fiancee, good food, very good service! They have a 12 percent service tax on the bill witch, for me, was ok because i didn't have any local currency on me for tips.

We were staying almost across the road from Borsso, and when we saw this restaurant from the outside, we knew it would be perfect for us, so we booked dinner for our last night in Budapest. The restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere, and on the evening we dined, there was the added bonus of having two guitarists playing. Entertaining and... More

This NYE we had dinner in Borsso Bistro, the food was so poor for the outrage price that we were charged. Service was very slow ( since its NYE ok we can accept but still...). The menu was around 120 euros and none of the course was excellent.... double think cause relation price quality is not word it!

Came here with my mom for her birthday dinner- we each got the 3 course tasting menu with wine and spirits pairing. Amazing! Each course incredible, especially the ox cheek (which I never had before but reminded of short rib), plus mulled wine shot with flaming apple with the check. Well priced and highly recommend! Great food and great vibes

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
