A restaurant in heart of the city center where wonderful catering according to the old school can be presented. Where they cook in front of the guests. Where regulars need only to think of what he would like to eat and the chef already cooks it in the open kitchen. Where foreign guest see why the Hungarian catering and cuisine is the best. Where the elegance of the inner city is accompanied by affordable Hungarian reality. This is the place where the answers to all questions are yes and where meal is also a real event. In Evidens we can find perfect tastes, ample portions and state-of-the-art kitchen technology. Are you looking for a long time for the restaurant that you can enter and you feel

This is a traditional Hungarian restaurant that was recommended by our hotel. Very centrally located near the big ferris wheel in the city Center of Budapest this restaurant is a great show of Hungarian food and cultural heritage. Not only do they make excellent and...delicious traditional Hungarian food (lots of meat) , but the live music while you eat is surprisingly good. The violinist played not only well known classic pieces but appropriate old pop songs. You can even make requests as they come to your tables. The waiters are also very friendly, open and attentive and have their own characters. Definitely go with their recommendations! What did make the night, was definitely the surprise birthday song and dessert after only mentioning we were celebrating my sister's birthday in passing conversation. Definitely worth a return visit!!More

My family and I enjoyed this restaurant. The staff was friendly and outgoing and made you feel welcome and appreciated as a customer. Evidens serves really good food with very generous portions. The staff entertained us and made us feel very comfortable. The local entertainment...that evening was a plus and added to the fun of the experience. Would definitely recommend Evidens Bistro to your list of places to enjoy good food and company.More

Good service and location. Tasty food. The portions are pretty big. The only bad think is the price of the food. It's quite expensive.

The best mozzarella I have ever eaten and my husbands beef steak was lovely. However the rest of my meal was pretty average. Not a cheap meal and had better elsewhere.

My third time at this modern yet traditionally Hungarian bistro. In the past we have sat outside but the ambience is just as good inside. The best goulash and fabulous bbq rib. Shame they were not doing their usual table side cooking-can’t recommend this place...highly enough.More

Low quality food but at the same time one of the most highest prices in Budapest , you will need at least 80euros for a meal of 2 . The place is awful , the only thing that is good is the location . Don’t...make the mistake to have a meal thereMore

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel. We experienced pleasant friendly service with a lovely violinist playing. We ordered the venison goulash and lamb shank. Both were very tasty, rich and generous portion, (wouldn’t have had room for starters!) The wine was ver complimentary...as was the grappa at the end of the meal. Definitely worth a visit for a little upmarket Hungarian food and wine.More

This restaurant is a Hungarian “trattoria” the food was good and the courtesy of the service also. The restaurant was almost empty but the service was slight slow. Not particular attention to details, it’s more about the quantity than the quality. The portions are very...generous, however there is not much of an excellent quality. Price for the center of Budapest is ok, slight high though.More

We were recommended to Evidens by our hotel concierge. The place was charming and the staff was great, and the food was outstanding Hungarian food, similar to what I grew up eating.. We enjoyed it so much we returned again and were not disappointed.
