Ordered the 4 cheese pizza and it was well topped! Packaging included foil beneath the pizza which I appreciated. I will definitely try more from this restaurant!

In an old railway dining car, in the park by Budapest-Déli railway station. Easy to find by catching the Metro to Déli Pályaudvar station and taking the underpass. It was a memorable evening and quite amusing to wave at people walking past in the park....The Eastern European food (pork cutlets Gypsy-style & Stroganoff) was deliciously filling. Probably best to book as it is only one carriage.More

Visited three years ago, having found it by accident. So friendly and welcoming, we returned a second time. The food was excellent and varied and well priced. Have just googled to make sure it is still there to revisit when in Budapest this year!

Visited this restaurant on the 15th Feb 2020 just a few metres from our hotel, wow absolutely fabulous. Train carriage at the side of the park turned into a restaurant, really authentic inside booking is advised service is great food amazing and big portions, although...I am giving everyone a wide berth today as I smell of garlic lol. Prices are great roughly 47.00 2 courses and 2 rounds of drinks , highly recommend this venue.More

I went to Vagon étterem for a late lunch on a Wednesday at 14:30. I found the restaurant in a travelling app. One thing that caught my attention was that both the app and the restaurants own website said: “Every weekday between 14:00 and 17:00...we give 50% discount to all our meals!”. I had a nice garlic soup for a starter and a roasted goose leg for main course. Good food! When I received my bill no discount where to be seen. I pointed this out to the waiter and showed him they’re on website. After a moment he came back and said that they had no such discount, only a -15% on a few Chefs specials. So, in conclusion this is a restaurant with good food and a nice setting, but they take advantage of tourists: Tourist trap.More
