My wife and I visited this restaurant for dinner and I would certainly recommend it for visitors who want to try authentic Hungarian Cuisine.
It's one of those bustling restaurants with efficient waiters dashing about and live accordion music giving the place a delightful atmosphere in which to enjoy a meal - and what does it matter that Hungarian food is not the greatest in the world ( at least for me it's not).
But please make sure you book beforehand as it is unlikely you will get a seat on the off chance!

Being Hungarian visiting my country I can tell that Bock Bisztro as authentic as it can be. Unbelievable wine selection and wonderful kitchen. The staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. The service is flawless and timely. I would give 6 star if I could

Two dinners in one week at Bock Bistro confirmed this as an excellent place. The servers are friendly and full of good humor and are knowledgable on the menu. The atmosphere is bright and cheery. Good wine list with many very good and very affordable selections. The appetizers we tried included a sheep's milk cottage cheese ravioli and a pot of peppers and onions--both delectable. Chicken with paprika dishes were deeply flavorful and tender. Two different goose preparations--including a sous vide breast that was meltingly tender--were real-deal authentic Hungarian. A fun and delicious place to eat in Central Pest!

If you are looking for one great place to experience hungarian cuisine at its finest- Bock Bisztro is the place to go. You can choose from a variety of foods from the well known classics to unusual specialities. The chefs of Bock Bisztro always find new ways of interpreting hungarian cooking but always manage to maintain the character of the dishes. Bock Bisztro offers an outstanding wine menu and the sommeliers know to always recommend the perfect match. The service is great, friendly and fun. We come to Bock since 2007 and they manage to maintain their high standards. The only minus point is that you'll need to make a reservation since they're always busy, even on weekdays.

We dined here with friends who live 'up the road' from here. While we thoroughly enjoyed it, they were a little bit disappointed with the unusually limited specials.

The waiting staff were friendly and professional, explaining several dishes to us; the food presentation was lovely.

The duck main course was very small, and we laughed when the noodles arrived - they were more like chips than noodles. The other two mains were nice, tho one was bland.

Had our friends not have eaten here before, they probably wouldn't go back. Maybe a new chef, or for some reasons supply was limited, but in their words 'it wasn't as good as it usually is'. For our first time it was very enjoyable
