Perfect place for a saturday diner, not too expensive, nice ambiance, and creative food...in our favorite neighborhood, the most culturally interesting, Dob street.

Went here for a couple of beers and loved the whole atmosphere. A very friendly vibe, spacious and colourful garden, a nice place to relax.

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

Great outdoor beer garden space, with eclectic furniture and colours. Good beer, good food, good value.

Really nice restaurant, recommeneded to us by a local. They don't serve traditional hungarian dishes, but burgers and steaks. List of good wines.

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

I was recently in Budapest and this restaurant was a real culinary highlight. I'm gluten intolerant and I loved the menu which had loads of great choices - really good allergen labelling and a variety of tasty dishes. What made this place stand out was...the service and the atmosphere. It was welcoming and friendly, I really felt that the staff cared about our experience. We loved our dinner so much that we came back for lunch the next day! I can't speak any more highly of this restaurant, it's a true gem.More
