We found and dined here last year thought it was great food and service. Returned this year to discover motivation and standards have slipped. The Food was bland, small portions unless you want another burger! Fixed price menu for 4 with a bottle of wine + 2 Soproni an unbelievable 4,500 Huf as they add 12% for poor grumpy service... More

This restaurant was rather disappointing. We enjoyed the goulash soup and then ordered a mixed meat plate for two. It was pretty much inedible. We basically paid the equivalent of €60 for two soups an water as we couldn't eat anything else.

We stumbled upon this restaurant when looking for a good place for dinner. My partner is quite fussy and Bocadillo had a great selection of different food! Overall we had great service, delicious food and it's a cute setting with the lights and tablecloths.

Stopped by for a lunch to refuel me after a morning of site seeing. Nice big burger that needs a knife and fork to get through. Absolutely gorgeous and set me up for the rest of the day. Restaurant has a lot of charm to it and some character. Good service when I visited.

We ordered a duck salad that we had to wait for for approximately half an hour. There were no other guests and my friend saw the chef prepare the salad which took him three to five minutes. It mostly consisted of lettuce, cucumber and Ruccola with duck bites around the edges of the plate. We also order red Hungarian wine... More

This place looks very cute and cosy, and we came in because we'd given up waiting for a bus and were freezing! What we really wanted was a mulled wine, but it was pretty much the only cafe in Budapest that didn't serve it! We settled for a cup of tea, which was perfectly fine - the staff could have... More

We chose the place because of the charming and romantic atmosphere and not too expensive food. The food itself was okay, nothing that special, but the service was shockingly bad, no service manners, not even goodbye or anything. And plus, the receipt included the 12% tip! For what?! The food was edible, some dishes were good and some not that... More

We stopped by here as it looked nice from outside. The staff were friendly and the God was good. We ordered a variety from rooster stew to burgers. All was very tasty. The mains and starters are really good. Desserts aren't as good so probably wouldn't order again. Perhaps stick to a love cocktail for afters! Friendly and attentive staff.... More

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
