After that i politely said that would have been nice for them to... More

We weren't pleased by the food or the wine here. My personal suggestion would be to avoid the promenade area (Liszt Ferenc) with restaurants. Our airline meal the next day was mor appetizing for both of us.

Thought we would try a local place menu looked good etc. but after 1hour and 30mins and still no food in front of us we decided to leave, the waiter didn't even bother telling us there was any problems. Communication was awful I wouldn't even send my worst enemy here!

Liszt Ference Ter offers a leafy relaxed pedestrian area of restaurants in the heart of Budapest where you can relax for lunchtime or evening drinks and food all week long. Buena Vista is definitely one of the better places to enjoy a beer or cocktail in comfortable surroundings, with good service and reasonable prices.

I decided to try a local menu item which was chicken paprikash since its one of these must try foods in Budapest. Unfortunately, it wasn't done very well. Chicken was a bit tough and it's the legs and thighs which are suppose to be tender. I was expecting some kind of a broth but it came with the local pasta... More

We came here after walking from heros square. Their menu looked thw best out of the other we saw! I loved how their goulash soup was served. I tried schnitzel for the first time, wasnt quite what I was expecting but still cooked well. My boyfriend enjoyed his salmon. Staff were friendly, service with a smile!

Ordered a good local red wine and Chicken Paprika. If ever I'll come back I will order that again. Don't order the Foie Gras starter. Try the platter instead.

Our restaurant is an isle of tranquility in the hectic life of “Liszt Ferenc” square. It is an excellent place for business dinners or parties after theater performances. Even company presentations or cocktail parties may be organized for a few persons in the private rooms. Our chef makes both international and domestic courses while is eager to serve such with care since both the mouth and the eye are to be pleased in our restaurant. Our guests may take the liberty of relying on the recommendations of our waiters – disappointment is excluded! Café / Terrace ‘A coffee please’ – asks the guest without guessing that these words have an entirely different meaning in the café and terrace of Buena Vista than at other places. Here the Guest is given not only the drink from freshly roasted coffee beans but also mood, joy and buzzing. Or, may the guests of Buena Vista choose the convenient arm-chairs and easy chairs for this very reason? If so, it is needless to say that in addition to the dozens of coffee and tea specialties, light salads, food specialties as well as delicious desserts are also offered on the menu to our guests. Seats:- café: 80 persons - restaurant: 60 - 70 persons- wine museum. 24 persons- private room: 16 persons- brasserie / Club: 70-90 persons- terrace: 160 personsEvents:- birthbay parties- company parties- press conferences- presentations- wedding parties- bridegroom’s farewell parties, betrothal’s farewell parties
