Traveling and dining with a family of six can often be a challenge. This delightful restaurant with wide variety of dishes on their menu was exactly what we needed. Their staff was very friendly. They had a string quartet who went table to table performing classical music. We look forward to visiting Budapest again, and this restaurant is at the... More

This restaurant appeals to tourists and is on a busy tourist street. We were a group of 4 including 2 Hungarians. The food was very mediocre and obviously prepared ahead of time and then heated before serving. My husband's duck dish was cold. Our cucumber salad was covered with sour cream where the cucumbers had wilted. The best part of... More

Had a really nice relaxing meal at the restaurant. The portions were large but very tasty and the service was attentive but not intrusive. The price was £36 for two courses and wine for two people. The goulash soup was the best I have tasted. A great atmosphere and a small gypsies band was a added bonus. Defiantly recommended.

This place was home to my two roommates and I when we lived across the street while we were studying abroad Spring of '09. The owners are extremely welcoming and the food is great. A great place to relax and enjoy a nice breakfast and coffee any time of the day.

This small family run restaurant is a must to visit. The service was friendly and the premsies have been very well designed. We were there in winter with lots of snow outside and it provided a perfect place to rest and warm up. The hot chocolate was wonderful, the fresh fruit salad declicous as were the toasted sandwiches. We've taken... More

Cafe Cicero is a little hole in the wall restaurant my friends and I had accidentally stumbled upon during our trip to Budapest in Spring 08. It is a family-owned place with all items freshly made on the premises. Breakfast is a bargain. For about $6 US you can easily afford a combo meal of eggs, toast, juice and coffee.... More

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.
