I can't fault this place. The service was friendly and quick and the food was great. We even got a free drink each as we got a leaflet from our hotel. We would definitely go back. :-)

Lado Cafe was the best meal of our 2.5 week, multi-country Europe vacation. The food was excellent, traditional Hungarian. The cafe has a lovely, relaxed atmosphere. The service was great and the prices reasonable. Lado Cafe is a must visit restaurant when in Budapest.

the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and
colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in
an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes
and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic

the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in
Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly

We prepare the classic meals of the Hungarian cuisine. We recomend the popular goulash soup, the little bit spicy vegetable ragout "Lecso" and the city's popular "Budapest style beefsteak with goose liver". Besides the meals, there are live jazz concerts every evening from 20:00 till 22:00.
