as with other reviewers this pub *food place* is near the palazzo zichy
we dined there on our first night and it was just ok
the goulash soup was fine but the burgers although freshly made didnt really taste of anything much,we used the outside seating a few times but N.B. even if you are just drinking they add *10% * service to your bill
what this entails I am not sure but it is becoming more prevalent in the touristy parts of budapest
it is not optional and TBH is just a hidden charge
the Guinness was good in here ,but the drinks seemed expensive compared to the less touristy bars at the other end of krudy utca
the 2 fellas that work here are friendly enough but although not bad,not that great that i would rush back

Found this little place -- on Krudy utca -- around the corner from our hotel, the Palazzo Zichy, and dined there three times. It's nothing grand, just a pub, but the goulash we had there was better than any other we had during our stay in Budapest, and friends loved the Fiktiv's hamburgers. The service we received was consistently friendly, and their non-alcoholic fresh lemonade the perfect refreshment after a day of touring beautiful Budapest.

We stayed at the Villa Palazzo Zichy - do so if you can - and this restaurant is very close by, behind the old National Museum. it is one of several along a pedestrian mall. We had simple food - burger, salad - it was good, the service was good, the prices were good, and the people-watching was good. The beer, too.

Like most places in the Kálvin Tér area, Fiktiv offers a daily lunch special that hovers around 1000 HUF ($5). We go there quite often and the last time the special was a delicious grilled chicken breast with fresh mashed potatoes (no powdered potatoes here). The first course was a good, light cream of onion soup. In an area known for cheap lunches, Fiktiv is easily one of the most consistent in its quality and variety. We have yet to have a bad meal there.
