We recently returned from a visit to Budapest.
We ate in the following restaurants that we would recommend.
La Pampa-A Argentinean type steakhouse. www.lapampa.hu. Very contemporary, good service and steaks. 106 Bajczy Zsilinsky ut21. I would recommend reservations.
Hungarikum Bisztro wwwhungarikumbisztro.hu. You definitely need reservations, I think they turned away 20 parties while we were eating dinner. Service and food very good.
Cafe Bouchon, www.cafebouchon.hu-1066 BP. Zichy J. U. 33, located just a couple of blocks off Andrassy.Ut
