When in Budapest my wife and I make a point of visiting here for a quiet relaxing lunch. It is right by the Metro but slightly away from the main bunch of tourist restaurants. Locals probably out-number visitors. The outside is very unassuming, on Google street view it is hidden by a tree. If you do find it, you will... More

We found this amazing restaurant because it was walking distance from our hotel. It was our lucky day. Very unassuming from the street, we walked in and were escorted to a lovely patio. Staff was friendly and interactive, answering our questions and guiding our selections. Our meals were so good, so beautifully prepared and presented. And when it came to... More

We attended on TripAdvisor recommendation and was not disappointed. The food was good, the service was good by Hungarian standards, and the price was reasonable. If it Hungarian cuisine your after this is a good choice.

Lovely food, great atmosphere and very friendly people. To put the icing on the cake, after I discovered I had left my hat behind and did not have time to collect it before leaving Budapest, these lovely people took my hat over to my dentist's surgery who have now returned it by post. Can't beat that for service!

My partner and I went to Cafe Intenzo after our hotel recommended it for dinner. It's in a cute little square and has the nice Hungarian menu. The staff are incredibly welcoming and nice. I went to order a schnitzel and he suggested I save that for Austria and try a local dish instead. I ended up getting the chicken... More

The food was great and the service excellent. The tomato soup is a delicatese. The prices are also very good compared to the city and location. Can't wait to eat here again.

In a nutshell, you have to eat here in a pleasant atmosphere where the portion of the Goulash I ordered was too much I had to leave some! The staff were so nice that I wanted to stay more and take advantage of not only their kindness but also the free wifi. I will come back for the soup I... More
