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.

Not just Simpla kert, but all the Kazinczy street is full with nice, relaxed and rather cheap pubs. The atmosphere is hard to explain - eccentric, rather bohemian. It definitely give the feeling of freedom!

Visited Szimpla after the reviews on here. We arrived quite early, about 8pm, and it was quiet, filled mainly with locals. However, the place soon filled up. Easy to imagine how busy it is in the summer! The drinks are cheap and the decor is quirky and cool. Can see it as a place for young people more than anything, but locals of all ages appeared to visit. Ended up staying for whole night - an enjoyable experience.

We have read some bad reviews of this place however we only have good things to say about it. Really cool ruin pub which just happened to be literally around the corner from our apartment which was so handy. We went two nights where the vibe was really chilled, there was loud music but if you didn't want to hear it so much you could go into one of their many little rooms. The staff were friendly and the drinks were cheap 700 huf for a Jaegermeister (which was probably too cheap as we kept buying them!). We didn't eat here and only came at night so cannot comment on that. We really enjoyed it both times and would return if back in Budapest.

OK, we were older by a generation than most of the folks in the place. But we though we'd give it a try, having read about ruin pubs and this one in particular. The beer was fine, and cheap. But when my wife found the sharp piece of broken glass at the bottom of her beer, and couldn't find anyone in the place who showed any interest or concern, we beat a hasty retreat. Beware.
