While staying at Hotel Palazzo Zichy, me and my family stopped here for lunch on our first day. My parents have been to Zappa many times before (this is their 5th year in Budapest, my 2nd) and highly recommended it. The service was great, although they did not have a few things on the menu despite it only being 2... More

Very convenient if you are staying at the Palazzo Zichy hotel. We were greeted by a friendly and attentive waiter. I had the duck breast and my wife had the chicken breast with a pear and Gorgonzola sauce. Both were freshly prepared and there was a good helping of food. Also tasted delicious. I had the local Hungarian rose which... More

Whilst looking for another bar we stumbled across this great place, great helpful English speaking staff. We sat outside and as it was much cooler in the evening we were supplied with blankets, large outside area for eating and drinking in a beautiful quiet setting. The food was reasonably priced as are the drinks, as this place is off the... More

Zappa Café is a quaint, romantic, old world type café/restaurant which is well worth a visit. The staff are friendly, and prices are very reasonable. We stayed at the Hotel Palazzo Zichy which is right beside the café and stopped in here every night of our stay.
