“This place should be number 1 in rating!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Every person who is visiting Budapest probably trying find a good value nice restaurant with local food be cooked homemade style. If exactly you are this person, stop reading that and head to Hungarikum ! Cafe is situated in centre of town close to Basilica. U will eb greeted by friendly bistro manager who will provide excellent service together with waiters. Menu is good and honestly prices are cheap. Whole atmosfere is very warm , nice old style music is softly playing. I had a traditional goulash soup , apple pie dessert and home made lemonade. All was very delicious.
My only advice for everybody will be to prebook restaurant before coming cause from what i saw this place is always fully booked. I got my place by some luck and savouring my soup was watching many people coming and leaving cause place was full !
The only thing i would advice to the restaurant is add some fish meals. In the rest its totally amazing hungarian restaurant right in the heart of Budapest!

“Authentic, Great service, great fresh tasty food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

We went to the restaurant based on the trip advisor reviews and we weren't disappointed! It was not busy when we went but this was due to our timing rather than anything else. The staff were great and helped us through the menu brilliantly. The food was tasty and fresh, everything was clean and we would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting authentic food. The prices were also very reasonable and should we be in Budapest in the future we would definitely return!

“Excellent Food, Authentic Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

The two of us had a 3-course lunch with wine on our last day of a 4-day trip. This was the best food we had--very authentic, all ingredients fresh and beautifully prepared. We had a nice chat with the owner, who is Hungarian, but lived in the UK. Even though it was our only time there and we were clearly tourists, we were treated as valued customers and friends. Fantastic experience and we left with the memory of some wonderful food. Total price was less than 14,000 Forints, or £40 GBP.

“Lovely genuine Hungarian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

Went to this restaurant after recommendations from Tripadvisor and the minute we entered we knew this was a right decision! A warm and genuine welcoming by the owner, a really lovely place (small and cosy), excellent service and fantastic Hungarian food at very reasonable prices. Easy to book online as well!
