Description: Pest-Buda doubles with Grandma’s homestyle Hungarian kitchen, using the best ingredients with love and care from our talented chef, Lajos Lutz . We only carry Hungarian wines rich with personality and like to highlight those special bottles that are the territory of true wine aficionados. Pest-Buda Bistro is on the ground floor of Pest-Buda Hotel, the oldest hotel in Hungary, originally opened in 1696. Pest-Buda is an important gastronomic institution honoring Grandma’s Hungarian kitchen for several decades. Together with Zsolt Litauszki we have worked for months to rediscover several Hungarian recipies and master the art of baking the perfect artisanal flamed pie. Chef Lajos Lutz is running a soulful kitchen devoted to Grandma’s Hungarian classics made with love and care. The combination of top-notch gastronomy and beautiful wines is both fresh and traditional without succumbing to typical Hungarian restaurant cliches. The whole experience is, of course, amplified by the Buda Castle’s stunning medieval setting. We only carry Hungarian wines and only those with a distinctive personality, reflective of a distinctive wine region. We feature several rare selections often not found anywhere else, and our extensive list is constantly changing. Pest-Buda is for You to enjoy 24 hours. Eat, drink, sleep… with love!

Excellent food. Our waiter was fabulous and very patient and explained everything. We had traditional dishes which were good. The setting was lovely and the price was good.

The location is great, just a street from the FIshermen's Bastion. The food is quite good, we had the hungarian pizza. Prices are reasonable and service is fast and friendly

My husband and I ate here for lunch. The restaurant has outdoor seating on a quiet street with pretty buildings. The fish soup and goulash were both good, as were the Hungarian pizzas. There was free Wi-Fi. Overall, the food and service were good, but it was pricier than other restaurants we ate at, perhaps due to its location in the touristy castle hill area.

First, Manager very obliging in every way - first class in every way. Our server was excellent too.
Now the food - extremely tasty at very reasonable prices.
Just across the street from where we were staying, the St George Residence All Suite.
The home made sausages were succulent and very tasty. The Crepes,as a starter, were ' to die for '. The Vienna Schnitzel so tender and good as was the cucumber in cream sauce - everything was so good. When back in Budapest, shall return. Highly recommended to say the least.
Thankyou other Trip Advisor reviewers, main reason we tried it!
