“nice place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

This was a very nice restuarant in a boat on the danube. The food was very good. The service was good, everyone was very nice there. It also was not too expensive. 60 dollars for 2 people,with wine and shared desert, and a delicious dinner.

“reminiscences of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in the middle of Budapest”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2012

This is the most beautiful and fashionable coffee house I've ever been in. The design is just awesome and remind of the good old times :-) You feel like in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Coffee is tasty and cakes are delicious as well. The location of the coffee house is great (near to Margit hid - Margaret Bridge). No idea why on the tripadvisor the Europa Kavehaz is classified as a hotel. Kavehaz means in Hungarian coffee house.

“Very disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 28, 2011

We were there to have a breakfast: drinks were ok but then the Apfelstrudel was not so good, the breakfast for 1900 ft was very poor (not even cheese included, three bad tasting toasts, jam and butter not even well presented - just make an effort!) which is quite expensive for Budapest.. We were glad to leave the place (which is very nice and well located I have to admit), and then on the bill, they made a mistake of 400 ft without even apologizing. The service was a little bitte condescending to foreigners. Too much for a single day, perhaps the wrong day!

“Great Pasty Treats”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2011

A nice espresso with a sweet treat is the perfect way to spend a break during the afternoon or a nice treat after dinner. The Europa Cafe has great service, excellent treats to try and is easy to find.

“There are better places for coffee & pastries”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2011

Although the Europa Cafe is lovely inside and has a nice terrace for outside seating, you can do much better for good coffee and tasty pastries in Budapest. I've been to the Europa Cafe several times and the coffee and pastries are adequate... never memorable, in fact, I've been disappointed several times in the quality. The location is good if you don't mind sitting outside on one of the busiest avenues in Budapest with a lot of noise... people, cars, trams, etc. It's ok for a quick cup of coffee. Service is fair... sometimes better than other times but usually nothing special. If you want to have good coffee and delicious pastries in a truly beautiful (but very old) place, visit Gerbeaud in Vorosmarty Ter just a 3-4 minute walk from Deak Ter and also from the Danube. Gerbeaud is expensive so beware, but the pastries are wonderful and the atmosphere superb. A must visit during a trip to Budapest. Europa Cafe's pastries are on the expensive side because they're in a very touristy location, but the quality doesn't match the price. If you're going to spend 4 times the price of regular pastries in Budapest, I recommend Gerbeaud for the experience. Otherwise, check out any smaller coffee and/or pastry shop and you won't be as disappointed as bothering with the Europa Cafe.
