Had a very nice meal there, the starter of asparagus and serrano ham was light and delicious. We also tried the salmon pancakes and were delighted that it was light and tasty.
Wine in Hungary is excellent and we were not disappointed with recommendation that the waiter provided. The staff were all well informed, polite and helpful.
It was very difficult to decide on a main course so in the end we opted for the suggestion on the menu of trying three dishes and sharing it. it worked out at about 5,500 forints but between two this seemed very good value. We were delighted with our choice. The duck was superb, as was the foie, the pork a little too dry.
We seem to have arrived during rhubarb season, and so we ordered the rhubarb cheesecake. it was the least satisfactory of the dishes, being very heavy and not very rhubarby. I was surprised because the rest of the meal had been so light and tasty. Can only assume that cakes may not be their strong point or that Hungarians have a different view of what a cake should be like.
We had a tokaj to accompany and then tried a further tokaj upon the waiters recommendation.
Living in London, we found the price exceptionally reasonable. We came to try Hungarian cuisine and thats exactly what we got. We were very pleased.
Ambience, well it was full of non Hungarians - most likely tourists but that did not mar the atmosphere. It seemed to be full of appreciative diners.
We walked there and so it was a nice walk down Andrassy Ut. and then up through a restaurant lined street.
Would very much recommend visiting Cafe Bouchon.
