A family owned place with excellent food, home made wine and very friendly service. Try the fried fish as a starter. The chocolate cake is outrageously good.

This is a small familiar bistro. The service is fantastic and the dishes are even better... You just have to make a reservation because the restaurant is usually full. I strongly recommend!

You definitely have to have reservations at Zellers. We wanted to eat there our first night in Budapest so we made reservations via skype from the United States. My only regret is that we didnt make reservations for more than one night! The atmosphere was cozy, the staff was friendly and so helpful to our jet lagged crew of travelers. We enjoyed every aspect of this dinning experience and the food was excellent! The rest of our trip we struggled to find a place to eat this enjoyable and did I mention affordable? We would go back in a heartbeat! Keep in mind - make more than one reservation!

We ate at Zeller Bistro on our last night in Budapest and found it to be excellent in all ways. It took us 2 days to get a reservation, so if you make one make another for the next night. The couple that operates Zeller are very friendly, professional and service driven. The food was excellent, service excellent, portions filling and the value was excellent. When ordering wine, you may taste before you buy. Great concept. Quaint little downstairs bistro on the Pest side.

After seeing reviews on tripadvisor on the city guide app thought we would try on a rainy evening with no booking. We were given a table much to my surprise with a time limit, no concerns there at all after just walking in. The service was just excellent and very friendly. Explained that I was vegaterian and what options were available other than menu and again really helpful, I now have a new take on a veggie burger. Sad we could not stay for a sweet/pudding although the staff made no effort to hurry us, we felt that we did not want to exceed the table time and let the next booking in on time. Thanks to the team at the Zeller
