Apostolok is an historic place in Budapest and really is a very nice space to be in. The food is as good as it looks. It even had some live traditional musicians that were very entertaining. We've found it to be an excelent option near the busy Váci utca.

This is truly the most beautiful restaurant I have ever been to, it has to be seen to be believed. The food was really great and reasonable, the staff were very helpful. There was live music and we had a really fantastic time, laughed so much I still have a sore throat.

We had dinner here with a groep of 8 people. Very attentive service from the staff, nice live music and nice decorations. The quality of the food was excellent. I had the apostolok salad: salad with beef, croutons and a poached egg. Others had a goulash soup, or goose liver on toast, which was all very tasty and of good... More

Food was great. Decor was great. Enjoyed the live 3 piece band who also did requests and made the meal that little bit special. What ruined the evening was the bill. 10% service charge added on automatically which we were very happy to pay as the service was good up until that point. 20 mins after paying asked the waiter...

We tried this place as it was right next to our hotel and we wanted to get some authentic Hungarian food. We were very happy with the food, it was tasty and the portion sizes were perfect and the service was excellent. If you come here you have to try the Hungarian wines, they are fantastic.

All I can say is wow! Spectacular goulash, with tremendous flavours and super tender beef. Incredible crispy pork knuckle three times the size of what I was expecting. Great service, and authentic ancient decor. A must in Budapest!

Staying in District V / Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
District V / Inner City
Discover the Inner City along the banks of the Danube, with its fashionable shops and iconic buildings. The Inner-City Parish Church and St. Stephen’s Basilica stand out as two of the finest examples of architecture in the area. If you are still hunting for more historical treats, then the ruins of the medieval city walls on Kecskeméti Utca are a must-visit while the Soviet War Memorial is also worthy of attention and relevant to Hungary’s more recent history. If shopping is on your itinerary, then be prepared: the market squares in this area are an absolute delight, particularly during the Christmas period, but even throughout the year you’ll find the latest trends in the shops on Vaci Utca.
