Found this nice cafe within walking distance and was very satisfied. I had the roasted duck breast and my guest had the rabbit. Both were wonderfully flavored (not too subtle, but definitely not bold). The presentations, as well were beautiful and the sides were paired well with the main entrees. The service was great, as well as the atmosphere being open and not too stuffy (with old antiques, etc...). Everything was also clean. You can sit either outside or in, but if you sit outside, beware of car exhaust and cars driving really close and fast. Overall, this is another wonderful "cafe" in Hungary that is great bargain, especially if you have dollars (US).

We were walking around everywhere trying to find a Restaurant to eat. We decided on this one , as it was handy our hotel, but the service was slow. we almost got up to leave as they seem to be serving everybody else around us. We picked the food although mine was some kind of chicken with a potato scone. The potato scone was a huge deep fried ring with the chicken on top. wasn't what I thought it would be and I am not a fan of deep fried food. The waiter recommended some wine and not being familiar to the Hungarian dollar, we picked a white wine to find out after we got the bill that it was a $47 bottle of wine. I thought it was a $12 bottle. The food was reasonable but make sure you realize how expensive the wine is before ordering. Tip was added on to the bill. I was a bit annoyed over the wine but our mistake for not figuring out the exchange on their money. Would not go back there if we were in town again.

We had a nice dinner here. We decided on it out of desperation, and feeling like we had run out of options in the neighborhood. The chairs were comfortable (no small treat in this town!), and we had a nice spot on the sidewalk. Our meals were tasty and reasonably priced. We had 2 starters, 3 entrees, and 2 desserts as well as 2 bottles of Pellegrino for under 17000 HUF. Not bad.
We were serenaded by a trio of good musicians. While they did try to hawk their CD to another table, they didn't approach us with it. They did as if we had any requests, I assume expecting a tip. We didn't request anything and left shortly thereafter.
All in all, the Kheiron is a good option in a neighborhood near the basilica and the Budapest Eye.

To be honest the food was good but this restaurant is a rip off. First of all, in our bill instead of 3 beers we found 4. The waiter apologized and recalculated the bill. To my surpise the wine the waiter recommended to me was about 12 eur per glass. I know it is my mistake because I didnt even look at the menu as the waiter offered that very fast to me and I could expect him to offer this kind of pricey wine. Unexpectedly I had to pay 45 eur for three glasses of wine. I'm pretty sure that usually waiters offer you inexpensive wine first and if the price is higher than average, they have to warn you about this and show it in the menu. I strongly wouldnt recommend this place.
