We had a really nice evening here, the food was great (goulash, langos, dumplings) and everything was good value for money. You can get all the traditional Hungarian dishes here, and the staff are friendly and attentive. There are also some options for vegetarians. We were lucky to get into this restaurant as it was fully booked for the evening, so might be worth making a reservation.

This is a great traditional Hungarian restaurant, small but perfectly formed. Local food at good value prices and you can view each menu item on an iPad at your table. Staff very friendly and knowledgeable about the dishes, but it’s a pity they don’t know more about the Hungarian wines they rightly want you to try.

Enjoyed a 9pm dinner on the Friday- convivial and welcoming atmosphere, friendly staff, nice traditional food, live music and all at a very reasonable price. I would highly recommend

Make a reservation if you want to go. We did not and got lucky they had one table for two that did not show up. We still had to wait for about 30 minutes but it was worth the wait. The people there are so incredibly friendly and attentive. They have menus with pictures on it, which normally mean tourist trap, but that is not the case here. It is located on a quiet street and reminded me a bit of the restaurants in Paris that are tucked away off the beaten path. The food was amazing. We did have the goulash soup and it was incredible but everything we tried was fantastic. My favorite was the Hungarian Gnocchi, to die for. My husband kept trying to eat it all before I could get another bite. There are so many great options. The ambiance is low key but adorable. They say it is mid to higher priced for restaurants but you have to remember you are in Hungary and everything there is so inexpensive so you won't have to break the bank to eat here. When we are back in Budapest that will be the first place we eat at.

We visited Hungarikum Bisztro on Sunday. We arrived at 17:45 and had to wait until 18:00 when it opens. We were suprized to see many people waiting outside for the bistro to open. The bistro was fully booked but fortunately they gave us a table for 1.5 hours since we hadn't made any reservation. The food was delecious and the waiters very helfull. The prices also were very reasonable. It was one of the best meals we had in Budapest but you need to have made a reservation first because it usually is fully booked.
