After hearing great things from this restaurant, we chose to visit Budapest only to eat at Monks Bistrot at New Year’s Eve. This was the greater at choice we could have made as the dinner was 5/5. Do recommend.

Just had one of the best meals I have had in a long time. Really good atmosphere and absolutely exquisite food. Service is just right relaxed but very professional. Couldn't recommend it more, will definitely be going back there again.

District V / Inner City
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
