My sister and I ordered the Hungarian breakfast and the Wiener breakfast. They were terrible. The Hungarian breakfast was served very poorly, and the Wiener breakfast had awful sausages. The previous day, we had dinner at the same restaurant, and it was excellent. The restaurant...is always full, and it's a shame they serve such a breakfast if they are that popular.More

I really enjoyed this cafe. Great atmosphere, friendly and efficient service and the food was absolutely amazing. It appears to be a favourite of both locals and tourists alike and I can understand why. They offer a great selection of meals and desserts as well...as a wide variety of drinks both alcoholic and non alcoholic. Probably a good idea to book a seat if you are going here as it is very busy. Fully recommend this hotel.More

Very unhappy with a rip off experience for a very average food in this cafe. They automatically charged us 27% of gratitude ( paid by credit card) , which is not normal for Hungry. The water Balog Balint ( his name on our recept) deliberately...overcharged us as he understood we are tourists and later he was ashamed to look at us when he was passing next to us to serve other ppl. On our way to leave the cafe, we expressed our dismay to other waters who was hunging around and we said we are not coming back again as we feel being ripped off... They just laughed loudly to our words. They felt so superior to us, stupid toursts. So our first day impression of Hungry- uncultured, uneducated and have no idea of good service ppl. They dont understand their job as waters depending on the tourists. They are so oblivious to the correlation of the more tourists = more business = better economy = better life. So far no signs of any european progress in their soviet attitude. Their attitude - take it or leave it! Wine was also grossly overpriced on their menu. 15 minutes later , we discovered the same wine in shops was 3200 versus 9120 in the cafe. Almost 250% surcharge. And they still charged us 27 % of gratitude and loughed in our faces. I strongly do not recomend this placeMore

Excellent staff make you feel welcome. Our server “Zsolt” was particularly helpful; he went out of his way to find a special item we requested. Chef was also incredibly gracious. Chicken Paprikash and Lamb Chops were both delicious.

After arriving in Budapest, my husband and I chose Cafe Vian for our first dinner, and we were very happy with our meal of Chicken Paprikash and Rack of Lamb. Both meals were exceptional; I especially loved the roasted vegetables served with the lamb. Our...server, Norbert, was attentive and friendly. Fortunately for us he spoke English, so communication was easy. We look forward to returning so we can try their soups and desserts!More

This restaurant is conveniently located in central downtown yet off the Main Street with a nice outdoor eating area. We ate there twice with friends from our tour group. The food was very good as was the service. The evening we had dinner with 10...of us, Norbert was our server and he was OUTSTANDING! He was very attentive, helpful and took great care of us.More

For lunch, we only ordered soup (goulash soup and beef clear soup), and I have to say objectively that these were the best soups I've ever had. The second time we visited for dinner, we had a salad and chicken paprikash. The paprikash was fantastic,...but the salad was a bit underwhelming. The service was TOP - friendly, helpful (we wanted to change our drink after it was brought to the table and the staff brought a new drink without a word on request). The food was excellent, the atmosphere was great, the service was top notch, I can't say anything more. TOP!More

Came here for my sister birthday and we ended up coming 4 times in our trip. Despite being very busy, the service was great and food delicious. Highly recommend the Pineapple pina colada and chicken paprikash. The atmosphere is perfect for a summer night and...special thanks for Mark and Benita, they made our nights even better. We will definitely return when coming to Budapest again.More
