We visited Budapest several years ago and went to this Farmer's Market, so decided to revisit. We happened upon Fakanal on the upper floor and were attracted by the great live violin and piano music. Going in we found lots of choice in a buffet line - the food was fresh, the salads were crisp and the desserts were beautiful (we had no room to eat them unfortunately). My husband had goulash & noodles; I had salad and homemade sausage with yummy bread. I noticed big pots of soup at some tables and asked what that was about. If you have a large group you can eat communally with soup and bread - their speciality is Zoctan soup and it smelled delicious, as the people I talked to confirmed it was lovely. For two of us the price was about 22 euros - very reasonable and good value. I only wish I had room for the apple strudel, but alas, it was not to be. Maybe next time?

Fantastic music, great fun, delicious food, very good restaurant! The Hungarian speciality "toltott paprika" was really fine. It is worth to try!

The food wasn't bad, but it was not worth the price. To expensive and you can have much better food, more food for half the price somewhere else in Budapest. Clearly a tourist-trap!

Located on the upper floor of the food market, this is a very good place to eat in an interesting setting.
It has atmosphere and there is a varied selection to be found from the servery. You take your tray along the line and the staff will help you make choices. The goulash was excellent and the other members of staff who keep the place looking clean and tidy are also very helpful, friendly and efficient.
If you want something a bit different from the usual pavement restaurant, this is a good place to go.
It's also worth taking time to browse and buy in the market below. Good value for money.
