Prime costumer service. Smily waiter thoroughly answered all questions and provided guide. The sushi is a French-Hungarian fusion and a most try. The same applies to the on cheek

Shame.. as highly recommended we thought to give it a try on a Monday evening. ..walked in hoping for a table, not booked, but plenty empty. Barman said wait a minute, waiter came over and rudely said 'full' and walked off. So we left and found somewhere nice.

So, there we are, five weary travelers that have just been traveling for 24+ hrs. We check into the Boscolo Budapest and walk down the street hoping to find something worth eating and walk past the most amazing looking restaurant. We walk in, we are asked if we have a reservation, of course we don't, "No problem" is the reply.... More

Second time there after 3 years and the same wonderful experience. Tasty, good variety, not very light but just savoury. Great wine list and efficient service. The value for money is fabulous. Everyone at the table was pleasantly surprised.

The food is excellent here as the other views attest. But beware of ordering wine by the glass. The prices are fine ( e.g. Their Pinot noir by the glass a little over $7) but the amount of wine must be measured in micro amounts. I've never encountered smaller portions. When mentioned this to the waitress she acknowledged customers complain.... More

We were eating at this place on our arrival to Budapest. After trying a few other places I would say this was one of the best, both for th food and the very kind waiters. We tried classic Hungarian dishes like chickens paprika and goulash. Both were really good. An other friend tried schnitzel which in my opinion was the... More

We were in Budapest to celebrate our Silver wedding anniversary and wanted somewhere special to dine on the 'big day'. We could not have chosen better. The Bock bistro is a real gem. It's fairly small so definitely recommend booking. The place is buzzing and the welcome's warm. The food is Hungarian dishes with a little 'twist'. There's a varied... More

Some of the favourites are here - veal schnitzel, paprikash and hortobaygi (forgive spelling). What makes this good is the sure touch with cooking and nice things like the homemade pickles. Locals were certainly dining here too. A good selection of local wines by glass too. Service is friendly and multilingual.

We were recommended Bock Bistro by a friend who's work have an office in Budapest. They bring colleagues to Bock Bistro for great Hungarian wine and food - and that's exactly what we got! Really enjoyed our evening; friendly staff who paired excellent wine with our courses. Thoroughly recommend.

Compared to many other Budapest touristic restaurant, this one offers the best value for money, with a 3 courses daily menu for 3200 forints or 4 courses for 4200 forints (service not included). The 3 courses menu was already more than enough and really enjoyable, very tasty, well cooked and nicely presented. Very fast service also, which was appreciated.

Staying in District VII / Jewish Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
