After touring the parliament building my husband and I were looking for a place for a late breakfast. We found Elysée Bistro & Kávéház. The menu was extensive and everything sounded good. We finally decided but our server was a little absent and service overall...was pretty average. The place wasn't very crowded, and we sat in the outdoor patio so could people watch some and look out on the square, it was a great location. Our meal was very good. I had an omelet with mushrooms and it came with a fresh salad. My husband got a dish with sausage and veggies on bread with an egg. We both were very satisfied. We'd return.More

The waiter couldn't have been nicer to us, he even taught us some basic Hungarian while he served us. We sat out in the front of the bistro which has really good views of the parliament building. The frozen cocktails are delicious and really cheap...tooMore

Seated next to 2 very noisy student groups and then given a chicken panini instead of the two cheesy panini ordered. Very limited choices for me(am used to that as a nut allergy and a veggie) but disappointed to be given a meat sandwich! Looked...pretty but waiter either not listening or not interestedMore

We had terrific salads (never had a nicer one actually), and a great main course. Do not pay in euros but ask to pay in local currency.

Located in a convenient place near the Parliament. Nice ambience in the restaurant. Food was good. Unfortunately service was really bad!!! One of the staff was extremely rude.

An impudent waiter who brought us something we didn't order - (we just discussed with each other and eventually ordered something else, 6 menu items all together), as he started to assert with a sassy grin that we ordered it, thereby demonstrating absolutely inadmissible to...a waiter character, and making us look as complete fools to everyone sitting around. As a result of the bickering, I suggested that maybe we should get up and leave, hoping he might change his mind, apologize and stop all this nonsense, to which he said "yes, leave." We could stay and discuss it further, getting manager involved, but didn’t want to ruin our New Year mood and obviously have any food at this place any longer.More

Located directly at the Parliament a wonderful place to grab some hearty food and drinks. Very stylishly decorated and great food, unique to say the least. I had the lamb which was incredible but it was on a tortilla bowl with beans and a Mexican...sauce, which did not really fit in my opinion. (I still ate it!) Worth the visit if you don't mind bored-looking and not so friendly service, which is only slightly annoying, the lamb was that good!More

We had breakfast here in a rainy weather, good value for the money spend. In the restaurant everything is in it's place, in the bathroom the smell is great. If you visit the parliament you must go there!
