The menu has a great range of choices, the vegan tapas and non vegan tapas looked great and had some great elements. Duck breast was very tasty although skin not crisp, beef in the tagliatelle also very tasty

We stumbled upon this gem when looking for options for dinner on a Saturday night and were pulled in by a couple just leaving who said the food was amazing. We were not disappointed! Staff were super energetic and friendly and the atmosphere felt so...welcoming. Food was also incredible and the menu offered great variety. A must visit!More

A quirky yet delicious dining experience. Myself and my boyfriend both agree that this is a must visit in Budapest. The service cannot be faulted, food was incredible and the value for money..?! WOW. Great gluten free main options too for my fellow gluten intolerant...and coeliac people - I had the duck and can highly recommend.More

One of a number of outdoor spaces for the 'ruin bars' of Budapest . Great place to have a few drinks. The whole surrounding area is definitely where you want to base yourself for evenings out.

This place has a nice garden in order to drink your beer and get out with friends. It is a cheap bar and you can relax and have fun. It is one of the best bars in Budapest.

5/5 stars for a wonderful and cozy garden. Yet, we are here for the food. And sadly the napi menu and Hungarian food recently has been replaced with an overpriced and tourist-minded menu. We got (very delayed, but hey - that all right) a dry-as-hell...chicken breast and a tourist-chicken-burger. 1/5 stars for the food. I hope this is not the way the Budapest cousine is heading :-(More

Kőleves offers very nice pub food and a pleasant atmosphere in the garden, which is enjoyable even when the weather is not that reliable. The menu is changing depending on the season. We went for staples like thai stir-fry and fish 'n chips - they...did not disappoint either.More

We ate lunch here, and had the Beyond Burger with sweet potato fries. It was absolutely (should I say 'beyond'?) delicious! The staff were attentive, polite and nice, and the place was spotless. We visited during the Coronavirus outbreak, when the city was eerily quiet...and empty, but this place was lovely.More
