This is a cozy place with friendly staff. Vian has several restaurants. Compared with the one in Gozsdu and Liszt Ferenc Ter this one is by far the better one. The location is downtown but not in the very busy tourist traps.

District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube,
with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The
Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica

architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for
more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval
city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while
the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention
