“Good standard pub”
Reviewed November 26, 2011

We went here for a weekday lunch and beer and were rather hesitant given it's location in the prime shopping streets. But it was packed with locals having their lunch time set menu which we took as a good sign. Range of beers is very good, all the standard global brands. Prices were what you'd expect given its location and target marget, so above average but you can always have a 0.5l of Dreher for 670h. Bottled fancier beer we paid 1290 and 1190h for. We didn't go for the set menu, which was probably a mistake because the huge burgers going to other tables looked great! We had a platter (1990h) of tapas style things which was delcious, the chicken soup (950h) was good too. I don't recomend the beef tartar (2390h), it was more of a strong paprika meat paste than the traditional tartar. I liked this place, for a shopping break and quick lunch and drink. It was comfy, warm, service quick and friendly.

“Good pub food and drink behind unpromising exterior”
Reviewed October 14, 2011

The Silenus looks pretty unprepossessing from the outside, being housed in a modern glass and concrete block rather than a typical Pest Art Nouveau mansion. However, the interior is pleasant and comfortable enough and, most importantly, it serves a huge range of beers and good, very reasonably priced Hungarian food (e.g beef stew, pork knuckle). The goulash soup is particularly recommended. Service is friendly and efficient. The atmosphere is relaxed, perhaps slightly studenty. A shared starter and a main course each, washed down with plenty of beer, came in at around GBP15 per person.
