We found this Bistro more by luck than judgement whilst enjoying an exploring walk on our first evening. There it was just round a corner. We were just looking at the menu outside when the manager came out and explained the menu in more detail. We decided to give it a try and were not disappointed. I would highly recommend... More

Great menu of traditional Hungarian and International cuisine, in a lovely atmosphere, a live Piano player the night we were there. The staff speak good English and were really helpful and friendly. The location is good in the centre of the city close to the Parliament buildings. Very highly recommended.

I love this quaint place for its lunch offerings. The food is fresh and portions are decent. Service is excellent and if you're lucky, you can even get dessert on the house. They have a wide selection of traditional and continental meals. Superb cuisine served with a smile. Highly recommended ++

We were at Budapest Bistro for a bachelor party !!! It was really nice, the personal was really great. The food was tasty and classy !!! And there was a group. They were playing music, It was so perfect. This "jazzy" atmosphere was exactly what we wanted to. Thank you guys for this amazing time.

I wasn't convinced by the menu but my partner wanted to go here, and I was pleasantly surprised by a weekly specials menu. I had beautifully-cooked pork with saffron mashed potatoes (one of the specials) and the meat just fell apart. My partner had the stuffed cabbage with pork belly (regular menu) and he said it was one of the... More

Description
Legendary Gulyas soup....The most well-known dish of Hungarian cuisine and with good reason. This embodies everything the Budapest Bistro's philosophy represents. In our restaurant that seats more than a 100 persons inside and 150 on our terrace, we welcome our domestic and foreign guests with dishes that provide a casual or fine dining experience which is enhanced by our comfortable 510 m2 establishment. We take the conventional flavours which are based on the rich Hungarian gastronomical traditions and we fuse them with the expectations of the highest quality in modern gastronomy. We offer downtowns widest breakfast selection, handmade cakes and homemade pastries to those who like to enjoy food made to perfection and ,,life itself" just like us. Our Hungarian enclosed, view as you dine kitchen, which is unique in the city, and our state of the art walk in wine cellar which is home to the highest quality of wines available, is a joyful sight for those in love with gastronomy. To compliment the culinary pleasures we offer live music and classic ,,bar and piano" atmosphere. Visit us and enjoy the real Budapest Bistro experience.

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
