I've been here a couple of times and I quite like the place. It used to be the children pools of the neighbouring Gellért spa, so the atmosphere is unique. The food is good, Czech beers on tap. The staff is friendly but the quality...More

The food was good , service fast and staff very friendly and they speak good English. My only concern is the place itself and the atmosphere , place could use some decoration and some renovation as well. Other than that all was good.

As a foreign "local" I finally found my home! Great terrace, friendly waiters and fantastic food! Try the special burger and you will be disappointed every time you eat a burger somewhere else!

Pagony is a nice garden restaurant in an old pool. The atmosphere is very pleasant, but unfortunately the food is not at the same level! Almost all dishes are rather average and the tastes are mediocre. Besides the service is quite messy. Orders do not...More

A well kept secret and fantastic restaurant when going to gellert hill or baths. The food was great and service was speedy. All Its missing is some atmosphere, but eating In a pool is a cool novelty. Really recommend this

Pagony was formerly a public swimming pool for children and the owners decided to keep the buildings and pools and substitute the water with tables and benches. Just this makes Pagony worth visiting, the great burgers and craft beers only add to the joy. It's...More

Gellert Hill
If you want to treat your camera to some amazing
scenery, Gellért Hill is a must on your itinerary. A
funicular journey from the Chain Bridge along the
hillsides provides a fast connection between Buda and
Pest, hoisting visitors to panoramic vistas. Once on
top of the hill, you’ll find the Citadel dominate the
landscape with its imposing 19th century construction,
a site that’s hard to keep your eyes on without being

Pagony opened behind the famous Gellert Bath on the Buda side, formerly known as a part of the bath itself. The place used to be the official child bath with a huge garden and therefore the shallow pools are still there, however instead of water there are tables and chairs in them.
In this gorgeous open air garden resto you can order breakfast, lunch and dinner made of fresh ingredients, in this special historical environment, along with Czech beers and home made cookies.
The place's business model is very flexible: they let guests form and reorganize the place the way they want, and Pagony is also open for movie nights, family programs, outdoor events, and exhibitions. They also have WiFi so it''s good for working while having lunch and studying as well.
