Neighborhood: District VII / Jewish Quarter
Description: The most beautiful garden restaurant in Budapest! Hidden inside of a historical building, the house of artists, which used to be the hang-out place for all the celebrities during Communist times (60-ies - 80ies). Great, homestyle cooking; peaceful, live music; trees, birds, fountain. Protected in rainy days as well. Fit for couples, families and big groups as well.

We went towards the end of May which made it warm enough to sit in the courtyard (blankets provided if you do get a bit chilly). Lovely setting and good atmosphere with pianist playing in the background. The soup was tasty (we had Goulash soup and Tomato soup). The calves liver was very enjoyable. Vegetarian options (like in most restaurants) was limited to two (tempura vegetables and a type of fried cheese).
Good value prices.

A former artist's club, where exhibitions, performances and cheap, but tasty food was on the menu.
Nowadays it is nothing at all, just an average restaurant with tired waiters and menu.

If you are looking for the old world charm you are used to at the Feszek, you will be dissapointed. New owners are turning it into a night spot like all the other cafes down the street on Liszt Ferenc Ter. While the building is great, as is the courtyard, it will not be what it has been for the last 90 years.

If you want to find the spooky charm of old Budapest while you dine on gourmet food, I suggest you go 2 blocks down to the Kis Pipa. Review to follow.

This spot is easy to miss, on the corner of a quiet street in Pest VII, but is worth finding. The room is spacious, if slightly overlit, and is beautifully finished and proportioned. Skip the nondescript starters and head straight for the Paprika Chicken and Beef Goulash, which are traditionally flavoured and just the right kind of spicy. Dessert was worth the little extra. Service from waiter Zoltan was unfussy yet attentive and he dealt smartly with a poor wine selection by suggesting a much better alternative. Music is alternately canned (not good) and live by San Francisco native, pianist Kherry, who's a bit of a Charlie Brown nut. All in all a Friday night well spent.

My absolute favourite part of budapest is the 7.district, jewish quater, full of alternative bars, retaurants. At my last visit I managed to find another amazing place. Its located in a huge building which used to be the club of the top artists. The building is a little bit shabby, but inside it has a garden which I've never seen nowhere in my life, with chestnut trees, arcades, romantic and beautiful. and its a restaurant!!
I ate carpaccio, my favourite, which was absolutely high standard and hungarian goose leg with red cabbage - alo fantastic. Our waiter was a charming-smiling girl, fluent english, all ok.
The inside tables and chairs are quite simple, summer style.
all in all its great and totally unique!
