Walked in without booking, the waitress was very friendly and accommodating, spoke excellent English, and our food was delicious! Marked down one point because the bathrooms were quite dusty and pokey, but I'd happily return.

Located in a quiet street in the busy Budapest. I ordered Goulash Soup and Papprika Chicken. Their Goulash Soup is good not so sticky; meat tender and vegetables crunchy. The paprika chicken comes with homemade pasta. The pasta is a little bit different, not the usual you see in the groceries. The taste is heavy but good; typical Hungarian with... More

Nice place near the centre of Pest, the food is very good (try the goulash if you like it spicy!) and the waiters really nice

I have walked by this place and often seen it empty inside; it only seems to get some business in the terrace area during the tourist season. I finally had the chance to try it when I was with a large group looking for a dinner spot. Points to the staff for happily accommodating a large group with no notice,... More

I visited last week (Thursday 12th May) and had a wonderful experience. The indoor area of the restaurant was full of people and the outside area was nice and quiet (and I'm a smoker) so we sat outside under the covering. The bottle of wine I ordered was among the best I've had in a restaurant (and that's saying something)... More

I ate 2 times a year ago and I loved it so I thought I could bring my mother in this year. The whole atmosphere /waiter group is changed. We ate a daily menu. The foods were very little and not fresh. The waiter was very impolite. I asked lemonade with still water, he brought with bubbles, my mother asked... More

It was an interesting experience on New Year's Eve in Pesti Bistro Bar. We had a fine dinner although we had to wait quite a lot. An athletic-looking, black hair waiter was very nice. A huge disappointment at unfair billing! We got a handwritten piece of paper which could not be verified. When I complained the waiter wasn't as nice... More

The food was really tasty. Paprika chicken/catfish amd goulash are must-try as they were really tasty. We also tried the lemonade in mango, green apple and grapefruit flavour. They were all refreshing and nice. The service was really nice too! All waiters and waitresses wore a friendly smile and were really attentive to customers. Some didnt speak good english but...
