Our familiar atmosphere, cosy Barack & Szilva Restaurant can accommodate 32-45 guests inside and further guests outdoors on the charming terrace in throughout the summer season. We created Barack & Szilva as a city-center venue to showcase our passionate hospitality, our Hungarian-inspired international cuisine and carefully selected Hungarian wine list in a rustical- chic atmosphere. We are looking forward to welcoming You in our restaurant! info: The kitchen and the terrace close at 11pm.
