As a child, I used to walk here from my grandmother's house with a few forints in my hand for a scoop of ice cream. The prices may have gone up since then, but not by much. The ice cream can call forth a line around the building, and the pastries -- both sweet and savory -- are flaky and ...Popular withFoodiesStudentsFamilies
Gundel is “amazing”! This traditional Hungarian restaurant serves delicious dishes. The décor is beautiful, elegant, welcoming and very romantic — never good for solo diners! 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. It feels bad throwing all that away, which you can't eat. The food is good and there is a nice atmosphere in this little gem of ...Popular withLocal

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
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
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

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

I came here with some friends on my first night in Budapest and I remember it being both chaotic and a lot of fun. It's a pizza joint with a collection of Communist era regalia decorating the walls and tables. You can choose to leave your own propoganda on the customer created graffiti laden walls if you desire or sit ...Popular withStudentsFoodiesBudget
An excellent restaurant specializing in traditional Hungarian dishes and wild game. When visiting Budapest, one must sample dishes such as stuffed cabbage. Kis Pipa Vendegio is the perfect place for a relaxed dinner that will give insight into the lives of the average Hungarian.

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 withBusinessLocalNightlife
Really nice little restaurant/cafe. If you're sitting outside on a colder day theres blankets around the chairs to put round you, which is nice as it's a shame to miss out on fresh air. Some really nice Hungarian dishes. I had the beef stew (cheapest thing on the menu) and it filled me up nicely and tasted lush.Popular withFoodiesStudentsBackpackers
