We stumbled across this restaurant by accident on the way to our accommodation and we have been in nearly every day of our stay in Budapest! The staff are so lovely and the food and drink is equally as good. Definitely recommend coming here !

Very nice place - especially for fans of trains. Inside you can find a lot of things connected to trains. Tasty desserts and very nice staff makes this place very interesting.

This restaurant has a very interesting and cool theme, as you are literally sitting in an ex-railway wagon while you eat. The menu has lots of choice, but personally all of us had the porkholt with cheese dumplings and enjoyed it greatly. We also had...great and helpful service from Edina, who went out of her way to explain the menu. I would highly recommend having a meal here while you are in Budapest!More

A lovely restaurant houses in an old fashioned train carriage. Ambiance is nice and quiet, great for talking over dinner with friends, food was very well made, service very professional and kind. Edina was a lively, genuinely kind host.

We went here for supper on our first night in Budapest. It was exactly what we were after and lived up to all the best reviews written here - staff were friendly and efficient. The food was great - we both had goulash soup followed...by confit goose - both were delicious and served well. Service is quick and there was no fuss at all. Well worth a visit, especially as the location and design of the restaurant are a bit quirky and fun. Definitely would visit again.More

My wife and I waited at the host stand for 10 minutes with no assistance at all. The staff saw us several times and nobody came over. Finally we just left in frustration.

On our first evening in Budapest we dined here. We walked from our hotel and had a little trouble finding the restaurant. We were worried because we were late for our reservation. But we were heartily welcomed, told not to worry but sit down and...relax. This restaurant is charming, the food delicious, and the service excellent! Such a find! I highly recommend the Vagon for an entirely pleasant evening.More

Incredible ambiance inside, it's like travelling on the Transiberian railway. The food was really good, they improved it a lot in the last years. Especially I would recommend the roasted goose with really crispy skin, and it's not expensive at all. The service also was...excellent, Zoli, Norbi and Gábor were very nice with us, always polite and always with a smile :)More
