I have not tried them all, but I am sure this is currently one of the top restaurants in Budapest. The food is tasty and delicious, and ever wine on the list is also available by the glass. The service is attentive but not overbearing and the atmosphere very lively. And, all at a reasonable price. I am told they... More

We found this restaurant whilst reading up on Budapest before going and it looked lovely so booked a table online & it was lucky we did - the restaurant is quite small inside & was fully booked when we arrived. The restaurant has a very relaxed and informal atmosphere and the staff are all very helpful & polite. We also... More

This is a restaurant which has received recently the Michelin star. Still the doses did not decrease and the prices did not increase. Food was very nice (fish and beef), service kind and we did not leave hugry (not like in the two other Michelin star restaurants of Budapest). And on top of all: we got a decent dinner late... More

Never in my days did I expect to come to a Michelin starred restaurant and eat the full round of courses with wine for two people, with 10% on top and still walk out the door with change from £100 This was a happy coincidence because even if it hadn't been so economical on price we would still have been...

Great many people consider Michelin star restaurant to have nice interior and perfect service. Not true, there is only one measure to get a star and that is “what’s inside your plate”! And this is perfect example of that standard. Service is efficient and friendly, interior is average but food? Food is excellent, with typical Hungarian dishes. I’m so glad... More

At Borkonyha I ate the best fish and the most interesting dessert ever. The lemon cake with blue cheese ice cream was a dream. The restaurant definitely deserves its Michelin stars, prices are affordable, the atmosphere is friendly and the look unpretentious. Must visit, must return.

Great experience of Hungarian kitchen. I had chuck of pork and my wife took polenta. Good, basic food with great value for money. We also had an salad (goat cheese) on side to share - this was good as well. Service was good and wine selection excellent - although local. Had some local dry tokaj, which turned out to be... More

Just casually walked in right after they been nominated the Michelin star, and luckily they had a cancellation so we had dinner with wine. I can't even choose a highlight, everything was well balanced and appetising, the wine selection is amazing and the service is what I call an example of fine service. Would love to come back!

Managed to visit the Borkonyha for the second time while on a short trip in Budapest again. Given its popularity I decided to book well in advance, three weeks before our dinner, for a table on Friday evening. The gent I spoke to said there wasn't too many bookings yet, so he fitted us in without a hitch, and I'm... More

Overall I was very happy with my meal here. Two starters, two mains, dessert, coffees and a bottle of wine totalled €80. The standard of the food was very good as you would expect and the portion sizes were fair. The prices maybe on the higher side of things for Budapest but you will eat in similar priced restaurants in... 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.
