Description: "Red Mail Coach" - "Voros Postakocsi" is traditional Budapest restaurant. It cannot be said, that the Voros Postakocsi Restaurant in Raday Street really stands out from the others, but anyone looking for a Hungarian culinary experience shouldn't pass it by. Originally opened in the early seventies, this traditional fully licensed restaurant, specializing in authentic Hungarian dishes, has been a firm favourite for over three decades, serving authentic, well-cooked and reasonably priced food to its predominantly local Clientele. The restaurant offers a wide range of carefully selected meals from authentic and modern Hungarian cuisine. Traditionally heavy dishes are rendered light, courtesy of organic meat, dairy products and vegetables. The menu offers several vegetarian options. We formed the Red Mail Coach Restaurant's Menu around the Foie Gras and other Hungarian specialities. The restaurant's wide selection of modern Hungarian wines is a treat for all. The Red Mail Coach Restaurant offers more than 70 kinds of bottled wine, half of which is also available by glass at very attractive prices.

“Classic Hungarian food with superb price/value ratio”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

The place is located on Raday street, a fancy neighbourhood with many nice places. A local contact recommended this place when I was looking for a real Hungarian experience, and it was definitely worth a try. I am not a big friend of loud music, so first I was sceptical, but the live gypsy music was really enjoyable. The atmosphere was elegant yet very friendly. The beef paprikasch was tender and tasty, local dry redwine 'bikawer' went well with it. I have to tell I was surprised about the low prises compared to the quality service - this is rather uncommon nowadays.
