Excellent food and service. Beautiful atmosphere and live music too. I had the duck and it was excellent. Salads were great too. There are web sites that say this restaurant is closed, but it actually is open. Great food.

The interior is stylish, it has a bar-like vibe, it’s rather small. We have requested the VIP section because we visited for an anniversary event, yet when we arrived, they informed us the VIP is closed and they seated us at the regular section. We...didn’t get information on why the VIP was closed and why they didn’t let us know that when we made the reservation requesting the VIP. That was disappointing. The food was very delicious, the steaks are definitely the center dishes. Service was alright, the waitress was very kind and attentive, I’d like to highlight her. Given the large bar display, felt like the wine selection was a bit limited. Overall, good experience and outstanding food.More

We had a lovely meal here on a hot evening. Great advice on the portion size (not often the waiter recommends sharing a starter rather than getting one each). We would in particular recommend the Chicken Kiev (calling it a Kiev was a bit of...a strech - but as it was better than the standard Kiev I am not complaining). I would gladly come back hereMore

My son (19) and I came here for dinner during our short stay in the city. We booked last minute and were seated in an upstairs section which would be brilliant for a private party or similar. Live singer and pianist downstairs were very entertaining...and the place had a good buzz going on. Service was very friendly and exceptionally speedy. The Goulash soup, pasta and pork were outstanding. Would definitely recommend.More

Had a very nice meal here. Gypsy pork was very tasteful and tender and a good sized portion. Roast potatoes were perfectly done. The chicken with egg noodles was nice tender and flavourable and covered in a nice sauce. Waiter was excellent and explained about...the dishes we were having. Very close to the Basilica.More

The evening started with the waiter telling the meal options that were not available. Given the short menu this was rather surprising. Starters were both good but after getting the main dishes, we were both disappointed with the amount of fat remaining on the meat...The chocolate brownie desert with very rich and dry and we were unable to finish it. We also felt rushed by our waitress to finish.More

Dear Sorry about the situtation but as we told you than we have just changing menu so that was the reason why we had a shorter menu. Thank you for your understanding Csaba

One of the best dining experiences we have had. We booked a table online and we were given a table upstairs which felt a bit like a VIP area. Our waiter was friendly, polite and spoke very good English. The food was outstanding! Top quality,...well seasoned and generous portion sizes! Would recommend the traditional chicken stew and the kiev which has an original sweet potato twist.More

An experience beyond amazing. We didn't know what to eat and coming here was the best possible decision! The food was sublime, the waiting staff were quick to respond and knowledgeable. Best of all, they gave their own opinion when necessary - to avoid for...example ordering too much food that wouldn't be eaten or telling us that a certain combination wouldn't make as much sense as another. Where we come from, the price for a restaurant of this quality would easily be three or four times as high. Highly recommended! Only a shame we can't give 7 stars ;) (Not to mention the very good live Jazz band we got to listen to all evening long)More

We had a lovely meal at Little Budapest. The salmon and chicken were delicious and the service was very quick. They had a pianist on which created a pleasant atmosphere. We would definitely go back!

It's a wonderful restaurant in the centre of Budapest. The service was excellent and they greated us with a smile. I wanted to make sure I ate something traditional and they helped me choose. The prices are good when considering the portions and the quality...of food. Also, the atmosphere was relaxing with piano music, something we were looking for. Highly recommended.More
