We were a group of 14 guys. Nothing to complain about. I had the Gulasch soup and the Wiener schnitzel. Both were ok. The price is acceptable and not that expensive. Service was great. Really good service.

A solid local eatery with good service, good food and interesting decor, Belvarosi Lugas is hard to beat for anyone seeking that Hungarian touch in dining. We checked out the reviews first and it didn't disappoint.

This is my favourite restaurant in Budapest given the cooking, service & value. We ordered the goulash, duck liver terrine, ratatouille, poppy seed cake with sour cherries and all were fantastic. Service was cheery & prompt. Fantastic value & highly recommended. It was also right...More

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
stand out as two of the finest examples of
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

I went there twice on quite busy days and no booking was needed. If you are just a couple I think you're fine. If a group of more people, make a booking :)
