Great choice from menu, food well cooked and presented, home made iced teas were refreshing, though a little sweet, coffee not bad - and staff friendly and English speaking. Great value for money too.

French style bistrot, quite touristy spot but good service and nice choice of some french food (did not try) and some local favourites.

It was busy when we passed earlier in the day so booked a table for 7pm. Staff were friendly and attentive. We sat inside and ordered food and wine The Caesar's Salad was excellent but the Paprika Chicken needed to have more Paprika for me....More

This is a cozy place with friendly staff. Vian has several restaurants. Compared with the one in Gozsdu and Liszt Ferenc Ter this one is by far the better one. The location is downtown but not in the very busy tourist traps.

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
