I've been to Pata Negra several times in the past, but our visit on Saturday was the best so far. Very friendly staff, super fast service, fresh and very tasty tapas. We ordered at least ten different tapas, and were all super delicious. We had a very good time and looking forward to go back soon.

I have been here many times. The atmosphere, food, sangria and beer is delicious. The staff are friendly. Just make sure you make a reservation as they tend to be pretty packed out most days of the week.

I've been there just before Christmas with my friends for the first time. Small dishes giving a chance to try several of them if oy are not that hungry 3 may be enough but very difficult to choose for the appealing offer. Definitely try duckliver with caramel sauce and shrimps in chili/garlic sauce. Planning to return already this week. 😊

Very fun to go with a lot of people. They have so much to offer. As typical of tapas, dishes are served in smaller portions. So we ordered a lot of dishes. I particularly loved the garlic spinach with Serrano ham, pan fried duck liver and pan roasted tiger prawns. But I didn't care for the fried sausage in red... More

Been to both restaurants both sides of Budapest, got to be the top tapas places in the city. If you can see my previous reviews I/we cannot fault this place. We went through the menu and had dish after dish, wine, beer. The owners have this place well sorted. Good value for money as it always is. Bill in HUF... More

Four of us visited this restaturant. The dishes were fresh and very delicious! I think they serve the best tapas in Budapest. We almost tasted everything! Service was fine. Reserve a table before you go!

One of our favourite restaurants, wide variety of excellent dishes, from simple pork chops to scallops. Definitely worth a try!

We came here on my birthday and had an excellent meal of tapas and wine. They have a great selection for reasonable prices and the service was good. Would recommend.

We arrived for a Sunday lunch at noon with my family. The place was almost empty then, but became fully packed in an hour, which really slowed service down, but also showed its popularity. Service was little confusing as we were served by 4 different waiters but they were reasonably good at keeping the orders in mind, although the dishes... More

Pretty high priced for Budapest and the portions are ridiculously small, even for tapas. Seems to have a Hungarian twist on tapas and very little to do with the original Spanish recipes. The fried potatoes came pretty oily, drowning in mayonnaise! The butterfish tasted pretty bland. I commented to the waiter that the portions were pretty small and he suggested... More
