I've been told that the ruin pubs actually just tourist traps and I've seen enough of overcrowded, overpriced establishments full of tourists but lacking any idea to agree. But this was a nice 'normal' pub.

I visited here with my mum last week and we both absolutely loved it! The house wine was decent and the beer served cold, which is all we were bothered about really, and the incredibly low price helped of course! There's a covered area which can accommodate large groups, an outside area with plenty of tables tucked away in corners... More

This bar is basically a big outdoor terrace (with some covered spaces) and has a very cool atmosphere. The drinks are plentiful and fairly priced, and there is a great taco bar at the back (tasty tacos cost about 500Hf, depending on the filling). This place was full and happening every time I went. The only drawback was that there... More

A buzzy ruin pub. Busy on the weekend but with lots of space. Some stag/bachelor parties, a birthday party with a dog, and groups of friends. Had a shot of palinka that was AWFUL, but we had a great time nonetheless

My boyfriend and I came upon this place by accident on a Wednesday night. To our delight there was a great band playing music (in English), a good ambiance and really friendly staff. This kept (beer garden) is one of the best in Budapest for a relaxing evening. The beer and food is reasonably priced and the tacos are AMAZING!... More

Best ruin bar in Budapest! Awesome, chilled out atmosphere. My favourite beer (was called kesaru meggy) cost about £1.20. Win!

Ruin pubs are one of the attractions of Budapest, and if you're a bar goer, don't miss this one! The atmosphere is laid-back and fun. Nothing special regarding the drinks - no different from other bars, but they make nice mulled wine.

It's a ruin bar and it's cool and trendy and has good drink selection but everyone knows that. I'm here to talk about the Mexican food. The burritos and tacos here are delicious and (fairly) authentic. The prices aren't bad for how much you get. Salsa wasn't great but their guacamole saice (I think I was mixed with mayo or... More

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.
