My wife and I ate a late lunch here in October. Cafe Kor was recommended to us by a tour guide and we had no regrets. The restaurant was very busy and we were lucky to get a table without a reservation. The ambiance was...More

I've eaten here maybe 6 or 8 times. Delicious authentic Hungarian food. Generous sized portions and well presented. Fast service by very pleasant waiting staff. Looking forward to a return when I'm back in Budapest on November 11th

Based on a recommendation from an expat, our party of six had dinner here. Although located amidst lots of restaurants, this did not seem oriented to tourists. Great food, great drink, great service. Best wine selection that we found in Budapest, lots of local wines....More

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

I don't know if you can book - we had a party of 4 on a Friday night, and were able to be seated within 10-15 minutes. We arrived about 9:00 p.m. at night, though, so rather later in the evening.
