Description: Our new menu and cocktail assortment is compiled to enable everybody to find the real thing. The one he/she likes, in the way we prepare only in Buena Vista. Our restaurant is an isle of tranquility in the hectic life of “Liszt Ferenc” square. It is an excellent place for business dinners or parties after theater performances. Even company presentations or cocktail parties may be organized for a few persons in the private rooms. Our chef makes both international and domestic courses while is eager to serve such with care since both the mouth and the eye are to be pleased in our restaurant. Our guests may take the liberty of relying on the recommendations of our waiters – disappointment is excluded! Café / Terrace ‘A coffee please’ – asks the guest without guessing that these words have an entirely different meaning in the café and terrace of Buena Vista than at other places. Here the Guest is given not only the drink from freshly roasted coffee beans but also mood, joy and buzzing. Or, may the guests of Buena Vista choose the convenient arm-chairs and easy chairs for this very reason? If so, it is needless to say that in addition to the dozens of coffee and tea specialties, light salads, food specialties as well as delicious desserts are also offered on the menu to our guests.

I visited the Buena Vista restaurant in late May 2013. The service was very good, warm, welcoming staff with a cheeky sense of humour. The menu has something for everyone and the two meals we ate there were pretty good in terms of quality, although the Tapas portions were a bit on the small side. The cost of our meals for 4 people eating 3 courses, with drinks came in at around £17 sterling..... very reasonable for a city centre location.

This is one of several low to medium priced restaurants around a pretty little park off Andrassy St. We ate there a couple of times as the food and service were good. The outdooe terrece is pleasant and there are blankets to keep you warm ( sadly even at the end of May ). The 2nd time we ate the food we wanted was no longer available but it was OK.

Prices are generally quite reasonable but most places seemed to charge between 10 - 15% for service and on our 2nd visit the waiter asked for a tip in addition. We didn't mind as we'd had a nice time.

Foie gras on the menu was sold out, the tapas were OK, the goulash soup was tasty but with very little meat, and the wild boar dish was also tasty but again with very little wild boar or wild mushrooms. Atmosphere, service, and wine were all good.

We reserved this restaurant a few weeks ahead of time as we were looking for a place which had a small conference room and equipment available for a power point presentation. The dining table was set up nicely prior to our arrival,and once everyone arrived,we started.Our
presentation lasted longer than we had planned,but the wait staff were very patient and would check if we needed anything regularly until we were ready to order. We enjoyed a variety of excellent starters,main courses,and desserts. The staff were quick,and the food arrived in a timely manner.Overall, a great experience. I would definitely return,especially when we do another seminar.

Not sure why this place was rated 456 out of 1,000 plus? we really enjoyed our meal, the blankets (if chill in the evening) and service was quite acceptable. The drink prices were surprisingly low and food yummy. the following night my wife talked me into going to an organic restaurant highly reviewed on Trip Advisor and our meal was literally served with a pebble in it and almost chipped my tooth - and they charged me for the remainder of the meal. Another reason we like the Buena Vista!
