Interesting menu, including an imaginative vegetarian option (something not easy to find in Budapest). Well-presented dishes. Portions more 'nouvelle cuisine' in size than 'pile it high'. Attentive but discrete service. Pleasant surroundings indoors and out. Excellent value. Strongly recommended.

The location is good, near the Fovam M4 station, but very quiet and pleasant, just besides the market. I took " Pork tenderloin, knuckle, confit mangalica spare ribs, with bacon-garlic potato pie", among which the tenderloin is juicy and delicious, and my personal favorite would go to the potato pie in it, you can imagine it as french crepe with...

I had a booking of 15 people and after calling ahead to warn of our late arrival, we were welcomed and shown to our table. The service from here on in was brilliant - not intrusive but incredibly attentive. All but 2 of us ordered starters which all arrived at the exact same time and this was also the case... More

Went to Borbirosag with the family while visiting Budapest after reading good reviews on TI. We weren't disappointed! Good food and excellent service. Our waiter was very helpful and spoke good english. The duck breast was divine. The restaurant is quite nice and all that at a very reasonable price. Would go there again. Recommended!

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel our first night in Budapest and we were not disappointed. The menu features modern takes on Hungarian classics and the food is delicious. My partner was particularly taken with the chicken with pear tartin. The Hungarian wine list is good, the service is excellent and it delivers great value for money. We happily... More

We ate here at lunch time after visiting the Hungarian National Museum. Easy to find behind the central market. Small menu but with daily specials. Serves well cooked Hungarian dishes. Very interesting wine list with knowledgeable staff. I had goulash soup followed by veal steak with foie gras which was absolutely delicious. Highly recommended
