We found this place walking around the neighborhood and were very pleased not only with the service (friendly waiters) but with the quality of the food and variety of beers. This place is located on a quiet street very close to the main boulevard. We...sat on the terrace and enjoyed the experience.More

We went here for a business dinner. Service was correct, not blazingly fast though. Food was a bit overpriced more or less standard bar food. Certainly not bad, but our burger was pretty much standard. Beer selection is really extraordinary, I guess that is why...people come here.More

The beer that’s currently on tap is displayed on a TV screen! When we visited they were all local craft beers, many from a local brewery called Mad Scientist. The beer was absolutely amazing and the food matched. I had the spicy BBQ burger and...my wife the chicken quinoa salad. Both were delicious. We came for an early afternoon lunch and there were only a few others there. The service was perfect. Too bad we only found this place on the last day of our visit. We will return! Highly recommended.More

If you are searching for a good place to chill out with friends go to Bölcső. Reasonable prices, tasty food and big variety of beer. Stuff is very friendly and helpfull. We have been here twice with colleagues. Recommended

This is such a great bar and restaurant, a very cool cellar bar vibe hidden away in Buda ,but near the tram stop and the Gellert Hotel, its full of locals of all ages enjoying beer and wine, the food was really fantastic, two of...us had the burger with all the trimmings my mum had the pork with apple which was equally good. The prices were very reasonable and the dry rose, an elegant pale colour ,was very very drinkable.The staff were friendly and very helpful. the menus weren't in english but the waitress who served translated brilliantly ,I will go backMore

Very nice atmosphere. An excellent place for groups of 2 to 6 people. Larger groups can of course still come but they can't maximize the box benefits. Good choice of beer specialities and quality spirits. I highly recommend the Hermelin.

Recently visited this place with my colleagues (about 18 people). The place is big but they had hard time to accommodate such a large group. We have ordered our drinks and the waiter came back to take our food orders. After a while surprisingly he...brought our food first. I cannot recall is this happened with me before. It is not the end of the world but quite unusual that you are almost done with your burger when you get your beer. Overall the service needs improvement. They have wide variety of beers but some of them are insanely overpriced. i.e.. 2000 HUF for 200 ml of craft beer from Sweden....ridiculous.More

The food is not fancy, but nice, people mostly come here for craft beers, which are not the cheapest here, but the atmosphere is warm and friendly. In the evenings a table booking is a must, otherwise you will have to stand awkwardly.

I had a simply fabulous burger here!!! It is a cosy and very casual place, not fancy but very welcoming! On an average evening it is full of youngsters as universities are just around the corner but t weekend in the afternoon you might be...l8cky to spot a few slower hours when you can enjoy silence and the fantastic taste of some handmade burgers. Not a very wild choice but really authentic! Bölcső burger and BBQ budgets are absolutely recommended, I will.also need to check out the other offers: chicken burger with green pesto and weisser curry wurst ;) yummy :DMore
