A very Good place for a quick bite. Food is good but could be better. You get what you pay for. Service is friendly and fast. Nice place to eat. Especially after a day of sightseeing in the city center.

This little place could make you think that you were in Budapest during the Soviet era. The decor is hip-retro. The food is a mix of traditional Hungarian and more modern choices. Of course, there's traditional beef goulash (served in an old fashioned kettle). Yet...More

Sometimes I wonder what people eat if this is the best food they had. Chicken paprikash was really average. Only chicken breast! No taste you usually get from bony parts. Gulash was rather watery. On the positive side, service was nice.

We tried this little restaurant on the basis that every time we walked past, no matter what time of day, it was busy - so we figured it had to be good. How right that assumption was. My friend had the ghoulish soup, which she...More

Welcome to Terv Presszó! Located in the heart of Budapest on Nádor utca since 1954. Originally created as a local neighborhood cafe/pub, the Terv Presszó later became the local hangout of writers and artists. The "presszó", once ubiquitous in Budapest during socialist times, functioned as something between a traditional cafe, a cukrászda and a pub. Such places are disappearing from the Budapest scene and the Terv, along with the Bambi, the Ibolya and a few others, are carrying on the "presszó" tradition. Now a cafe and restaurant, the Terv features a full bar, serving beer, Hungarian wines and cocktails. We also offer traditional Hungarian food like Goulash served in a bogrács, chicken paprikás, and beef stew served with homemade dumplings, salads and Hungarian desserts. The Terv Presszó is proud to be one of the few surviving neighborhood pubs in the 5th district, catering to locals, tourists and CEU students who enjoy a bit of Budapest nostalgia. Come visit and see our collection of original art and artifacts from the 50s, 60s and 70s! Open every day from 11 am. We close at 10 pm weekdays and at midnight on Friday and Saturday. Reservations and walk-ins both welcome.
