Visited here while touring the grounds of Buda Castle Districts. Lovely decor, not much food choice but the meals we had were presented well and tasty. Was probably the most expensive meal of the trip but was a nice lunch time stop in this quaint...villageMore

The Pest Buda is AMAZING! The restaurant is very nice, thoughtful decor. We got the chicken paprikash and it was the best meal we have eaten in a long time. If you are ever in Budapest looking for good, casual, Hungarian food please come here....We loved our meals so much we even got dessert and they were to die for. Our waitress Kitti was very helpful and attentive! Great food, great service, great vibesMore

For me this is the best part of the city - sleepy’ quaint and almost Parisienne in feel-this restaurant epitomises the area. Good service, friendly, really tasty local food and wine. Well worth a visit.

We went here twice and had two excellent meals. Try the flamed pie (pizza) it beat the pizza we had when travelling Italy. It’s seriously insanely good. Also good picks are the goulash and paprikash (but you’d expect that!)

We had a nice dinner here after a wine tasting. We enjoyed the chicken paprikash and wild boar stew, also the bistro plate appetizer. The service was efficient and helpful, overall a good experience since we were staying nearby.

A friend brought us here, and we had the nicest lunch after a morning of sight seeing. The amosphere is cozy and intimate, and our waiter Adam went out of his way to make our stay memorable. The Goulash Soup was perfect and it came...with freshly baked bread and delicious homemade Erös Pista, the famous hungarian chili-pepper paste. Adam recommended a wine which our friends so liked, that they even bought a few bottles to take home with them. And I was very happy about Adams suggestion to give the "Foti Zwickl", a local unfiltered lager a try, as it is really a nice brew. We can recommend the Pest Buda Bistro and will definitely return here.More

Really delicious! Soups were great (gulash and mushroom) and then mains were even better. Stuffed cabbage and wild boar stew. It is a little bit more expensive, but we paid 70 eur for a good meal for 2 with some beer and wine. Tips are...complimentary - 13,5%, so do not be surprised. Anyway it is worth the price!More

We came here by chance without booking even if we were 8 people. Luckily in less than 10 minutes the waiter prepared a nice table for us and he was super super friendly and helpful during the whole lunch. I took an offer of the...day made of spinach pottage with buttered shrimps and was amazing. Also tried the pike and was delicious. Price was fair for the quality of the food, the location and the friendly staff.More

We had a lovely meal here! The staff are very friendly and have excellent wine and food knowledge/recommendations. All of the food is traditional Hungarian food which we loved as it meant we could try some new things! Really reasonably priced for the quality of...the food!! Cannot recommend this restaurant enough!More
