The best restaurants in Budapest city centre

From local Hungarian food, Italian Pizza, Sushi and Thai Curry to exclusive French and World Cuisine in Budapest, Hungary

We at Apartments Budapest love good food and good wine. It is therefore always a pleasure for us to explore good restaurants in the city. We try each of the restaurant which we recommend and make sure that we only list those places where the food is good or excellent and the service is impeccable.

Local Hungarian Restaurants in Budapest

Hungarian food can be really delicious. Most people are familiar with Gulash, but what they don't know is that it is in fact a soup and it's called Gulyás leves in Hungarian. The thicker, stew like dish does exist, but it's called pörkölt.

We use a lot of meat in our cuisine, including beef, chicken, goose and pork, but we do also have some lovely vegetarian dishes. Peppers, tomatoes and other vegetables are widely used in these dishes and of course red, ground paprika (mild or spicy) for the flavouring.
