Description: Pierrot is a refined yet comfortable and relaxed, friendly restaurant run by our several generation restaurateur family. We are located in a 13th century old bakery house and have been here for three decades. We are featured in the Michelin Red Guide since 2005 and have been awarded 2 hats by Gault Millau in 2011. Since Pierrot was founded in 1982 then as the first private café-restaurant in Budapest, many important people - actors, superstars, artists have visited Pierrot, among them the bands Depeche Mode and AC/DC, actors Marcello Mastroiani, Sir Roger Moore, Antonio Banderas, Jeremy Irons, Robert De Niro, Harrison Ford, Eva Mendez and Ryan Gosling. Pierrot has gone through several changes since 1982 but one thing has remained: In our family gastronomy is not merely a way of making a living but also a vocation in the best sense of the word. For decades we have regarded it our mission to make Hungarian cuisine and gastronomy shine in its old, pre-war glory again – you know, when Károly Gundel and Escoffier were still colleagues ...

We didn't eat here, but we thought them quite kind to permit us to have a drink even though the outside patio area was closed.

By unique wines I don't mean ropey - they were unique to the restaurant and well worth a try. Both my husbands food and mine was just fantastic, well worth a trip - but leave room for pud!

We sat out on the patio and enjoyed a wonderful dinner with excellent service and presentation. There are heaters and blankets for the cooler temperatures or you can dine indoors. We enjoyed the patio and garden ambiance. Easy walk from the Hilton in the historic district. Food was great! Chicken paprikash and Pike Fish.

Nice to have a high quality meal after countless simple food places with cheap beer. Here there are obviously real, highly competent cooks in the kitchen. All the dishes, including Hungarian, seem to say "this is the correct way of making this dish". Excellent wine selection and the best service I have experienced in Hungary. Don't mind paying for quality...

Too bad this was a lunch visit and not dinner. Could have stayed forever. Our group of 10 found this restaurant from a recommendation of a hotel guest at the Gresham hotel. So glad we took her advice. The decor is so charming and we would have loved to have drinks in the garden But didn't have time. The staff was extremely professional and we enjoyed talking with them. And the star of the experience was the food! Because we were there during st. Stevens month we were lucky to have the opportunity to try the goose leg confit with braised cabbage. Four of us had it and it was so delicious I hope they have something like it on the regular menu. That was truly the standout dish of the meal but I can highly recommend the small green salads, the risotto with arugula, blue cheese and pears, the pulled chicken with pancake and the goulash soup. And of course the home made bread.
