We spent the whole day at this wonderful spa and thermal baths in Budapest which was a great experience in itself but to be able to break for a nice lunch at the Spa was an extra plus. The food was tasty, service good, atmosphere...More

You have little choice if you are enjoying the Gellert pools and spa. The café is basic but OK and works if you need or fancy a cool one.

Disappointing and very expensive. Felt somewhat a hostage to the system, we were in the baths and needed to use the restaurant. Ordered a bottle of wine to enjoy, however no ice, so it got warm very fast.

One of the most pleasant places to have a meal in Budapest on a warm evening. The terrace overlooks the beautiful Freedom Bridge and Pest beyond. I enjoyed my paprika veal and Bull’s Blood red. With mineral water the bill for one came to HUF...More

The Gellért Cafe was pleasant, with nice service and ordinary food. We were still in heaven from our bathing in the spa so it really didn’t matter. I’m not sure why but they made us walk outside in the freezing air from the spa lobby...More

The menu is quite varied and the goats cheese salad was delicious and the falafel were homemade. The service was excellent. The atmosphere was relaxed and there didn't seem to be a problem that everyone was in their swim wear.

Sat on the terrace for dinner. Slow at first, everything sped up after some minutes. Good food, ate local dishes and were better than expected. Inexpensive if compared with similar hotels around Europe. Inside, very decadent and old fashioned, baths need renovation. Live music, local...More

Gellert Hill
If you want to treat your camera to some amazing
scenery, Gellért Hill is a must on your itinerary. A
funicular journey from the Chain Bridge along the
hillsides provides a fast connection between Buda and
Pest, hoisting visitors to panoramic vistas. Once on
top of the hill, you’ll find the Citadel dominate the
landscape with its imposing 19th century construction,
a site that’s hard to keep your eyes on without being

No reservations required, and you can eat here without using the baths, but you will be in the company of people in swimsuits! Very good cocktails and excellent service.
