Gulas and beef stew on bread above any standards, cooked like at Hungarian friend grandma's place. Pilsner draft available, pleasant service. Different from plastic uniform tourist places around. Highly recommend!

I didn't expect such delicious meal. Beef tastes wonderful together with toasted bread with butter. The portion was quite big, but I couldn't stop item so good it was. Very satisfied

I came here because this place received rave reviews at TripAdvisor. However, I don't understand them at all. The food was quite poor and not very large either. Moreover, it was not a bargain. Prices were about the same as in other restaurants. So, no...More

We had goulash soup and it wasn't as people says here. We had better goulash soup in ´Turkish fast food. There was a good atmosphere, good service. Potatoes in goulash were edible (Wierd taste). If you want traditional goulash soup you dont find it here.

Waited for an hour for the main course , pork stew has rubber-like pork, chicken soup tastes like pepper water. Goulash was way too salty.

Honest food /servings and servings in a traditional pub/cafe of the old style . Not many left like this place that opened in 1954.

Welcome to Terv Presszó! Located in the heart of Budapest on Nádor utca since 1954. Originally created as a local neighborhood cafe/pub, the Terv Presszó later became the local hangout of writers and artists. The "presszó", once ubiquitous in Budapest during socialist times, functioned as something between a traditional cafe, a cukrászda and a pub. Such places are disappearing from the Budapest scene and the Terv, along with the Bambi, the Ibolya and a few others, are carrying on the "presszó" tradition. Now a cafe and restaurant, the Terv features a full bar, serving beer, Hungarian wines and cocktails. We also offer traditional Hungarian food like Goulash served in a bogrács, chicken paprikás, and beef stew served with homemade dumplings, salads and Hungarian desserts. The Terv Presszó is proud to be one of the few surviving neighborhood pubs in the 5th district, catering to locals, tourists and CEU students who enjoy a bit of Budapest nostalgia. Come visit and see our collection of original art and artifacts from the 50s, 60s and 70s! Open every day from 11 am. We close at 10 pm weekdays and at midnight on Friday and Saturday. Reservations and walk-ins both welcome.
