On our first evening in Budapest we dined here. We walked from our hotel and had a little trouble finding the restaurant. We were worried because we were late for our reservation. But we were heartily welcomed, told not to worry but sit down and...relax. This restaurant is charming, the food delicious, and the service excellent! Such a find! I highly recommend the Vagon for an entirely pleasant evening.More

Incredible ambiance inside, it's like travelling on the Transiberian railway. The food was really good, they improved it a lot in the last years. Especially I would recommend the roasted goose with really crispy skin, and it's not expensive at all. The service also was...excellent, Zoli, Norbi and Gábor were very nice with us, always polite and always with a smile :)More

Ordered the 4 cheese pizza and it was well topped! Packaging included foil beneath the pizza which I appreciated. I will definitely try more from this restaurant!

In an old railway dining car, in the park by Budapest-Déli railway station. Easy to find by catching the Metro to Déli Pályaudvar station and taking the underpass. It was a memorable evening and quite amusing to wave at people walking past in the park....The Eastern European food (pork cutlets Gypsy-style & Stroganoff) was deliciously filling. Probably best to book as it is only one carriage.More

Visited three years ago, having found it by accident. So friendly and welcoming, we returned a second time. The food was excellent and varied and well priced. Have just googled to make sure it is still there to revisit when in Budapest this year!

Visited this restaurant on the 15th Feb 2020 just a few metres from our hotel, wow absolutely fabulous. Train carriage at the side of the park turned into a restaurant, really authentic inside booking is advised service is great food amazing and big portions, although...I am giving everyone a wide berth today as I smell of garlic lol. Prices are great roughly 47.00 2 courses and 2 rounds of drinks , highly recommend this venue.More
