This is one of the cafes that we visited on our trip to Budapest. We ate outside in the lively Vorosmarty Square, but the incredible interior is worth a look as well. Prices are high, but the ingredients, their combinations and presentation are very and worth it for a special occasion. I had an iced cappuccino with ice cream and whipped cream, and my husband had one of their specials, which was an ice cream concoction that mimicked a Sacher torte--with apricot and chocolate--very rich, and probably more suited for sharing, with something lighter and more refreshing. We saw a young couple with a little girl eat an entire lunch there (not just drinks and desserts), and wondered how they could afford it; we can't imagine that it was anything but a special occasion. Our dessert diversion was pricey, but how often will we be in Budapest and have this opportunity? Splurge, if you can afford the prices and the calories!

On our 5 day visit to Budapest we had our evening meal at Gerbaud twice. The food was good and nicely served. We preferred to Hungarian specialities and our waiter helped us make choices of these. The location in the large square is good and very central. As for the cost, we thought it represented good value.

I live in Budapest, and it is sad, that the Gerbeaud is not the same than it was years ago.
Unfortunately it lives from the old fame, lot of tourist go there, but the quality is poor and it is very expensive. There are a lot of confectionery in Budapest that are much better and cheaper. I would recommend the Szamos, that is an old, traditional confectionery also in the Vorosmarty square, next to the Hard Rock Cafe. Or the Daubner im Szepvolgyi street. The Auguszt in Kossuth Lajos Street is also very good.

Guests cannot order a single piece of the famous gerbeaud tart, only way to taste it if you buy a whole cake. It is true that you can find a desert plate on the menu card which offers 3 different pieces of each: gerbeaud, dobos and eszterhazy for about 3500 HUF...

We had lunch here and very much enjoyed the food. Staff were polite and helpful and the location was great. The selection of cakes and ice-creams was amazing, but we were unfortunately so full we could not manage to try them! This place is great, but perhaps slightly overpriced.
