Restaurant details
Good for: Large groups, Bar scene

Neighborhood: District VII / Jewish Quarter
Description: Szimpla Farm Shop under 7. Kazinczy street is open for you! We couldn't take it anymore that you can only buy these producer goods on Sundays, so we made the essence available for the weekdays too. Soups with meat and vegetarian, Mangalica hot dog, sandwiches from the best available materials from real producers. Cakes, cookies, strudels from sweet cheese, poppy seed, apple, all from Szimpla.

Probably the most famous bar amongst tourists. The word ruin pub says it all but if you do not know what to expect you can look at the pictures. However since they have become so popular with the foreigners their prices also went up a notch. Still you should not miss out on a chance to visit Szimpla at least to get a feel of this ruin pub because where else can you sit down in a bath tub or see bicycles hanging down from the walls :)

Very quirky dark lit bar with something for everyone ranging from shisha pipes to a cocktail bar the only thing I couldn't understand was the raw carrots that are sold but it made us smile

Well deserved top spot position in the Budapest bar rankings. Quirky, and nothing else like it that we found in the city - and reasonably priced too (about ?1.50 for a local beer, similar for wine). Miss this and you miss out!

I've visted Szimpla both times that I've visited Budapest, and always had a great time. There are a bunch of different rooms to sit in/explore, and the atmosphere is amazing. It's very eclectic. I would definately recommend visiting Szimpla while in Budapest!

We visited Szimpla Kert back in November 2012 and we loved it. It's different from your usual bar/pub/cocktail bar. I guess it has become very popularand touristy but who cares, some attractions should not be missed and this is certainly one of them. They did fabulous mulled wine. We went around the whole building, there is a different surprise through each door. If you are going to Budapest make sure you visit.
