14 of us went for a 90th birthday meal. Perfect arrangement in advance. Two different meal options incl a vegan one: no fuss. Lovely, attentive service. Glorious, tasty, well-cooked food. Reasonable prices. Friendly owner who is also head waiter. There's nothing not to recommend about this gem.

According to my rule to eat what the locals eat I wanted to find a restaurant serving traditional Hungarian dishes for reasonable price and a quiet romantic atmosphere. This was a great choice. The location is perfect, just at the back of the Opera house. The service was lovely and the portions huge, keep in mind you can order half... More

We have eaten here three times and the food is delicious, the service is excellent (friendly, attentive, and flexible with orders), and great atmosphere for either a special occasion with friends or date night. The prices are reasonable compared to the restaurants in the touristy areas and the dishes high quality. Call for a reservation even if it is last... More

Couldn't find a flaw really...chatted to the man who runs the place and it's obvious he has a passion for making Cafe Bouchon a brilliant restaurant. Italian families and couples swarmed the place that night and both the waiter & the owner spoke fluent Italian; was amazed. Worth a visit.

Cafe Bouchon is a terrific restaurant. The service is first class and the food excellent. The meals are large so they offer smaller portions as an options. Great idea. The menu is varied and they have a wonderful selection of wines. We used Cafe Bouchon twice during our four nights in Budapest - it was that good.

What a great little restaurant. Was only about a 10 minute walk from our hotel and located down a small side street. The service was fantastic as was the food and wine selection. I had the beef tenderloin and my Mum and Dad has the Goulash and everyone thoroughly enjoyed the meal.

Recommended by our hotel and luckily booked by em otherwise we would not have got in. This restaurant have very well trained and experience waiters serving excellent food but the highlight is the owner who is a real wine enthusiast and offers not only a very interesting Hungarian wine list but also lets you have a glass from any bottle...

Just around the corner from our Hotel (Star Inn). As it was late November we took a chance without booking and were lucky - in season you would need to book as it is quite small. Some of the best service we have had, good english, help with the wine list, very polite. Complimented by great food (duck with cherry;... More
