Out for a walk decided to eat here. Good choice. Evenings looks like booking is best but single man can eat at the bar. Goulash excellent, goose fat with herbs, nice touch. Mains of duck with pasta! Wow!. Nice ambience, good service. Lovely place

Recommended by our hotel on first night. Starters were nice, soup and goats cheese (nicely presented). Wine choice was limited and we ended up having to order a mid range bottle, as the cheaper ones hadn't been delivered. Not sure if this is the case...More

Please take off “vegan option” because just a green salad cannot be considered a real lunch/dinner option. And the cost cannot be the same of the ceaser salad! Wine was ok.

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.
