My husband and I were staying at an Airbnb near this restaurant. Our Airbnb host highly recommended it. We walked in on a Monday night around 7pm for dinner (no reservation) in mid November. The place was packed. We waited about 20 minutes, but it was worth it. I had stuffed trout and he had a chicken dish. The food... More

Delicious food and very reasonable prices, very cosy atmosphere. The restaurant was recommended by a friend and a reservation is needed since it was fully booked.

We thought we ought to eat before heading off to join an evening cruise along the Danube and discovered this restaurant purely by chance...and what a find ! Fabulous place, tastefully decorated, friendly staff and great menu. We opted for a shared goose platter and were not disappointed. The food came reasonably quickly, there was plenty of it and it...

We ate here twice; once early afternoon when it was not busy; very good service and excellent food. We ate again a couple of evenings later, it was a thursday evening and quite busy - we hadn't booked but they found us a table. Service was still good, but it was a very busy evening. One main course was not... More

In a good central spot of the city, we had a party of about 20. They placed us upstairs and made us all feel very welcome. Service was very good as was the food. Relatively simple menu thats not overwhelming and provides for much conversation over a wide selection of various beers. Got a tad warm being upstairs, but we... More

We absolutely loved this restaurant - the food was absolutely delicious, and the prices are very reasonable. I'm pretty picky when it comes to restaurant but VakVarju was really great.

We tried getting further away from the touristy places that were way to expensive and stumbled on this restaurant. At first when we entered they asked us to wait on a little bench for a couple of minutes because there was no table for us yet. As I was sitting there next to the playing area of the kids, I...

Our apartment recommended this for great Hungarian food and we loved it. We even took our friends back again later in the week. This turned out to be our favorite Hungarian goulash of the weeklong trip. Alot of local families and groups, definitely suggest a reservation. We went back with friends that had little kids and they were very accommodating... More

Description
Do you know what Vakvarjú is? If you have ever tried a finely crisped bread dough with a lacy brim directly served from the oven, you must have tasted "vakvarjú”, the original fried bread dough of Hungary . This is the name of the simple, but even more delicious traditional dish of Hungary, of which you could try many variations in our restaurant. If you prefer other specialties, you are also warmly welcomed. You can choose any of our delicacies from the menu. Would you like to taste homemade dishes? Our cooks are just preparing appetizing savories in the kitchen. Believe us, all are worth trying!
