Good food but disappointing waiter service. Waiter made rude comments regarding the fact myself and my fiancée were unable to provide a tip each occasion we went. Furthermore, although we explicitly asked him to pay in local currency, he used our card and put it...in euros right in front of us.More

We had a daily menu. Very tasty food, quick and polite service. Nice, clean and cosy place. We were sitting inside, I think the terrace would be noisy (neighbourhood is in course of construction), the place by the window is lovely.

Lovely place and very cosy. We went there for breakfast. Coffee was very nice and Hungarian breakfast very tasty. Great place to visit anytime.

We have nipped in for a quick beer whilst walking the city. No lunch for us as we had our heart set on street food, but from what I saw being served.. ula lah! Extremely friendly staff and sweet little place. If it wasn’t for...my husbands stubburness, I would definitely order something from the menu. Worth your time!More

We came here on our first night of our break to Budapest. We came across this Restaurant when walking through the streets. It looked so inviting. Inside, the restaurant was cosy and had a romantic feel. The staff were friendly and were helpful too. As...for the food it was beautiful presentation and taste wise. l would happily return to it if ever in Budapest againMore

The restaurant offers a yummy yummy delicious 😋 meals with a good normal prices. We have 3 children whom enjoyed there Italian menu & the Hungarian one. The restaurant was full at the second day of Christmas & it took about 30 minutes to prepare...the meals for us. I think they must work more on the Goulash Soup ( it needs more Meat & Spices. The waiters were so kindly & friendly & all the time around us asking if we need anything. I liked the way of the service charge ( Tip) at the bill they asked me would you like to add 12% or 15% as a tip. This is a smart technique of them. I advice other tourist to visit & eat in the Cafe Vian BistroMore

This was a great find, we stumbled across this Bistro on Saturday and had a few glasses of wine watching the world go past. We then went back today to have lunch, food was lovely and great service. I had Hungarian chicken and my partner...had red wine beef stew.More

Lovely ambience, decent choice of food / wine, great service, generous tasty servings & fair value for money. Would return if visiting Budapest. Hope you enjoy the experience as we did.
