In 2005, at the end of a long backpacking trip, friends of my then-girlfriend (who is Hungarian) brought us here for dinner. Trofea pushes all the right buttons for Hungarian cuisine. They have fantastic grilled meats of every variety and the most varied buffet salad bar that I've ever seen. The interior is tricked out like a hunting lodge with ...Popular withHistoryFamiliesLocal

Ornate and impressive and expensive. Made a sidetrip to have coffee and a slice of cake, just to enjoy the beauty of the place and because it is a touristy thing to do. Lovely decor but one stop was enough.Popular withHistory

When in Budapest you've got to try the local pasty, the kreme - vanilla crème, sandwiched between layers of mille-feuille and finished with confectioner's sugar. This family-owned pattiserie - they've been baking kreme here since 1901 - may lack charm but it's the place in the city to sample one of these yummy cakes.Popular withFoodiesStudentsFamilies

The tasting menu was ideal and matched the local chardonnay well. It is a perfect place for a long lunch break after a full morning of sight exploration. Service was slightly standard. The ambiance was ...

This is the place to be for those who like to endulge and have a huge appetite. If you just eat normal portions, order an appetizer or share a main dish between two people.

Eaten here several times.....atmosphere is very nice, food is 'not bad', although a bit overpriced. Good place to go with small or large group as its usually a fashionable, energetic crowd. Also, next door is bar called 'Mini' which they own and good for cocktails before or after.Popular withBusinessLuxuryDesign
Had one of the best meals of my life here. Real Hungarian goulash (a soup, not a roux as you'll find elsewhere along the Danube), a crepe-like dessert with poppy seeds, and Tokaji Aszu wine. If you are in Hungary, you simply must try Tokaji Aszu. Louis XVI called it the "King of the Wines"

Iguana has a great atmosphere, bustling and busy. The food is fantastic and served by cheerful and friendly waiters. We were able to get a table without a booking, but this was in February and not the busiest time of year in Budapest. The burritos were very good, as were the cocktails...Popular withFoodiesBusinessFamilies
Popular with the expat community since it's right around the American Embassy, Pomo D'Oro is a great place to go for some authentic Italian food. The atmosphere is elegant while still being comfortable, and you can come dressed up or down. I've only been here for lunch, but it does get quite busy from noon until 2. The number of ...Popular withFoodies

A nice little pastry shop, where you should definitely eat a piece of cake. It was delicious!
