This restaurant in the Jewish quarter is less formal than it looks from outside - you can have anything from a drink to a snack or full meal. The portions are generous and the food tasty. You can pay in £, HUF or €

The restaurant is really pretty, staff was also very kind but unfortunately on my opinion, the food that we ordered had nothing special that could make me go again. Place to improve.

In our trip we nearly visited 20 bars and restaurants and Spinoza was the worst experience sadly. Not the foods but manners of the waiters had a bad taste. The athmosphere was good, food taste mediocre but service quailty was terrible. If you accidentally ask...More

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
