We went to the restaurant mentioned above. The service was slow, staff looked like they couldnt be bothered, the fizz was flat and the food was rotten.The waitress wanted to take our cutlery away before we had been fed!!!! Plus the tables outside are under trees so you get leaves, flowers etc all over the top of you.

No aircon inside, very long waiting, wine was already hot, when we got our salad, not to say about the main course. Average food and high prises.

Having eaten here 3 years before on our last trip to Budapest and totally enjoyed it, we thought to come again with our friends for one of our last nights in Budapest on this tour. We were not disappointed.The food was up to the same high standard. The service was great and we all sat outside on a warm Budapest... More

Strongly recommend the goose leg with mashed potatoes and cabbage. Amazing! The fresh lemonade is also a favourite.

We only had drinks here during a thunderstorm , we actually were lost and the staff were so kind with directions, maps and a tourist book while we enjoyed cocktails and beers and sheltered from the storm. Wide selection of beverages available. The food we did see being sent out looked great but cant comment on its taste. 12.5% service... More

We were looking for a restaurant for lunch close to our hotel, having just arrived in Budapest, and picked Vendiak based on TA reviews. The decor inside was very smart and stylish. It was mid-afternoon so the restaurant was quiet. Service was fine, and the food was good, but not spectacular. It was a little overpriced I think, given how... More

This all started off quite well - nice food , quite good service until we asked for the bill .They insisted on payment in cash - Euro or HUF - no cards. This wasn't explicitly declared before the meal. I hadn't enough cash to settle the bill in full. Despite having had a reasonable time up until then - we... More

We came here for dinner as it was not far from where we are staying, just off a pedestrian square, where it was warm enough to eat outside, although the seating inside looked very stylish and comfortable. We shared dips to start then Chris had porcini pasta while I had a local speciality of roasted goose leg with mash and... More

This modern styled cafe had tables both inside and outside. We only went in for a snack but the waiter was quite insistent that we had some Hungarian specialities. He was right to be proud of the Hungarian dishes - they were very good indeed. Although we ended up having a bigger meal than we had originally intended, it was... More

It is not THAT special for Budapest, as every decent cafe in Budapest could offer you something tasty and cheap. But in this very place Caesar salad is marvellous and steak is overwhelming) So, if you are close to this location and hungry as hell, you shouldn't hesitate at all.

Thank Aleksei B

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.
