The food was very good with side bread and in a perfect portion size. The service was very fast and with a few details that really stand out.

We stepped in to get some real, Hungarian goulash and we weren't disappointed. Although the price was quite high (about 1800 HUF, 6 eur), the portion was enough to make us feel full. The waitress was very nice and spoke English (not so obvious in Budapest).

To be honest, we did look at Trip Advisor to find a venue for dinner and came up with this one and it definitely lived up to others and our expectations. Go there as it was excellent.

This restaurant it´s an excellent option if you want to taste the typical dishes from Hungary. I went with a friend and she ordered the Goulash while I ordered the Steak Sándwich ( I don't remember the exact name but it is mentioned in the menu as one of the highlights of the house) and it actually was really good,...

We popped in here to get out of the cold on our first day and had some amazing mulled wine, I can't stop thinking about it! We didn't eat, but the food looked and smelled quite nice.

We found it by chance. It is close to the St. Stephen's Basilica (Szent István-bazilika). We want to try some typical food so we entered in different restaurants but only this one stroke us. Really nice interior design: there are a lot of pictures and vintage stuffs on the wall. Kind and helpful staff. We ate delicious meat soups and... More

Decided to eat in the next place we passed, as it was dark, cold, and we'd walked 25km during the day. What a pleasant surprise! It's warm and quirky here, and the staff are so friendly and helpful. The staff speak english perfectly as well which was nice. My boyfriend and I shared the sausages to start and these were... More

Went here on our first night and found this lovely quirky cafe. Food was basic, local, quick and hot; so it was just what we needed on a cold Sunday night. Loved the ambiance and found the staff to be very helpful and tolerated my poor attempts at Hungarian

Welcome to Terv Presszó! Located in the heart of Budapest on Nádor utca since 1954. Originally created as a local neighborhood cafe/pub, the Terv Presszó later became the local hangout of writers and artists. The "presszó", once ubiquitous in Budapest during socialist times, functioned as something between a traditional cafe, a cukrászda and a pub. Such places are disappearing from the Budapest scene and the Terv, along with the Bambi, the Ibolya and a few others, are carrying on the "presszó" tradition. Now a cafe and restaurant, the Terv features a full bar, serving beer, Hungarian wines and cocktails. We also offer traditional Hungarian food like Goulash served in a bogrács, chicken paprikás, and beef stew served with homemade dumplings, salads and Hungarian desserts. The Terv Presszó is proud to be one of the few surviving neighborhood pubs in the 5th district, catering to locals, tourists and CEU students who enjoy a bit of Budapest nostalgia. Come visit and see our collection of original art and artifacts from the 50s, 60s and 70s! Open every day from 11 am. We close at 10 pm weekdays and at midnight on Friday and Saturday. Reservations and walk-ins both welcome.

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.
