Budapest is a Grande Dame: at the same time vivacious and grandiose, elegant and intimate, Budapest is Cafe Society, shops and boulevards, Baroque and Art Nouveau architecture, art and culture, charm and romance.

Situated on the banks of the Danube, Budapest has a grandeur, a beauty and a welcome without comparison - part of the triangle of civilisation, completed by Prague and Vienna. This is your invitation to visit the city and enjoy all it offer.

Astoria Hotel dining room

Eating out can be very inexpensive. The atmospheric restaurants in the castle area can be excellent value.

Restaurants:  Nowadays, every major world cuisine is represented in the city. So, as well as hearty traditional feasts, you can go Italian, Chinese, Mexican or even Russian.

Cafes:  If you're looking for the true café experience and while many of the late 19th-century coffeehouses are now long gone, some such as the New York and Gerbeaud uphold the fine tradition, retaining much of their period charm and elegance. See below for more info on cafes and bars

 Cafes and Bars

Kádár Étkezde
A fabulous little lunch venue in the heart of the historic Jewish district in central Pest. It's packed with locals enjoying the non-kosher Jewish home cooking served on a ceramic all-in-one airplane style plates. Uncle Tibi personally greets regulars from the neighbourhood as they pile in and tots up the bill at the end. The walls of the crowded room are crammed with photos. Sip málna szörp (raspberry cordial) at this non-alcoholic eaterie or help yourself from the old-fashioned soda water bottles on every table. The waitresses are the kindest and most efficient in Budapest, the menu is only in Hungarian, and you'll have to share a table but that's part of the atmosphere.

Tema
Part book shop, part bar, part cafe. Sit and read, or surf the net on free terminals or just chat to the English speaking staff at the bar whilst enjoying a cocktail. You may even find yourself sharing a drink with cast and crew from the local TV studios!

Szimpla Kért
Cool courtyard bar that stays open all winter thanks to a pre-fab roof and loads of garden heaters. Szimpla is full of people at the weekend although it never gets too busy and it manages to retain a relaxed but lively atmosphere. The decor is sparse but fun. Old cinema chairs and dusty sofas, along with the crumbling stonework lend it a decadent air.

Kérts - What have come to be known as the “kerts” are a series of ad hoc pubs assembled in the courtyards of once grand, now ramshackle, buildings. There is a very boho vibe to them and they have become a Budapest alternative institution since emerging from the rubble a couple of years ago.

To find the kerts, go to any bar and ask where the nearest kert is

Café Csiga
The light streams into this spacious high-ceilinged and plant filled café and bar through its large windows, giving it a feeling of a conservatory. It is also a perfect space for local artists to display their work. There is a small food menu that varies daily.

Extra Kávézó
This smoky little shop window-fronted coffeehouse/bar is a popular joint with the laid back alternative crowd. Art on the walls and free Ropi on the tables (Hungary’s straight pretzel).

Amstel Bar
With a downtown setting, a good selection of beers and pleasant staff.

Crazy Café
Around 20 draught beers 100 bottled beers,  virtually every cocktail under the sun. The bar menu comprises mainly of pizza and simple Hungarian fare.

Incognito
A large, trendy bar with loud jazz sounds and an adventurous cocktail menu. The young crowd alternate between here and Café Mediterranean just across the street.
