I picked out this place before going to Budapest as a must do for restaurants. It's at or around the top of TripAdvisor for a reason. Food was immense, service was brilliant. Well worth the visit.

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

There was a large covered patio with a stage and lighting and many small, intimate rooms. Furnishings were creative and rustic-I think NYE would be a lot of fun there!
