I've been lurking and enjoying past conversations but my trip is finally starting to feel real -- and I can work on details now!
We're coming in on a Friday evening and will be there 5 nights. I'm wondering how far in advance I need to make a restaurant reservation , and for which restaurants it's necessary. I see reservation phone numbers on many websites. If there is an email reservation, that is simple. But some just have a phone number.
We are not going to the highest-end places, but I'd like to treat my daughter to 2 or 3 memorable restaurant experiences. She is vegetarian but as long as there are a couple of choices it should be fine. A couple places on JamesE's list really appeal to me. Paprika Etterem and RÉZKAKAS for the music.
Other times we'll wing it and go to a place like the Karavan, pubs, etc.
One of the days is May 1 - May Day. It looks like there could be something interesting happening that day. Does anyway have info on where to look or where to show up?
My adult daughter (21) and I will spend 5 nights + 4 full days in Budapest! We have train tickets to Prague on day 5.
