Staff was attentive, menu was translated into English (most are these days in Budapest) and food was above average. At current exchange rate, this was a bargain. Very easy to find (right behind St. Stephen's Cathedral).

Very pleasant meal. They tried to put a more contemporaty twist on some traditional dishes. Food very tasty and overall a very nice meal. I finally has stuffed cabbage. Not as good as my mother made but still well prepared.

We went for dinner on Christmas Eve. The food was just OK, really not anything special.. What I found insulting was the service, cost, and the wine tactic used. When dinner was supposed to come, the waiter comes and pretty much pushes a glass of wine on me. When I agreed to have a glass of house wine, I was... More

The Dio Restaurant is few steps form Erszebet ter, the central place of Budapest. The dining room is brand new with a special wood decoration very tipical. It is not the tyoical "hungarian food" as you can imagine but is is a sort of modern hungaria with lighter recipes. Price is really high compared to the hungarian averagre. Service is... More

After a long day traveling from the US, my wife and I arrived in Budapest on 20 August, and learned this was St. Stephen’s Day, a national holiday celebrating the founding of Hungary in AD 1000. It appeared that half the population of Hungary had come to Budapest. We met a Canadian couple that had also just arrived at the... More

This is a Michelin rated restaurant with excellent food and service. Prices are okay but not cheap- we paid about $150 for a group of 4, including dessert, wine, and tip. My only complaint is it's very empty. It's a large restaurant, and they had only 4 tables full on a Saturday. That makes for a dead ambiance, but otherwise,... More

This restaurant makes a big change on the standard Hungarian food . They take the standard goulash and really change it up. Don't know if it's for the better but the food was good . Service was great and the ambiance was cool. The restaurant was able to get 8 people seated on a Thursday night with no problem with... More

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
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 and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
