We tried visiting here for a meal after the baths but unfortunately could not find the restaurant. Looks like another more expensive one is in its place

Definitely worth finding. Totally unique! We found this place amazingly individual, and went back twice. Cheap drinks, as anywhere in Budapset, didn't eat there though.

Give a try, you will surely like it. The gravy for less than 1 euro with fresh home-made bread is a real must.

If you are after a laid back, relaxed, not complicated place with one of the best views in Budapest, then Szaft is where you sud go. Ask for a fröccs at the self service bar, eat a gravy (szaft) with fresh white bread and pickles....More
