40 of the Best Budapest Restaurants, Cafes and Markets

Wondering what and where to eat in Budapest Hungary? 

We spent a month eating our way through the sprawling Hungarian capital city.

Check out our Budapest Food Guide with the best Budapest restaurants, cafes, and markets.

Kispiac Biztro


The tiny bistro serves seriously solid Hungarian fare that satisfies culinary purists as well as more adventurous diners.


We didn’t expect to eat great Hungarian food at a ruin bar, but that’s exactly what we ate at Most in the 6th district.


Belvárosi Disznótoros

A cafeteria-style restaurant that serves enough meat to satisfy any carnivores who walk through its doors – including us.



If you like big food for small prices, then out-of-the-way Pléhcsárda is the place for you. The food stand is far from fancy and orders are placed at the counter.


Fakanál Restaurant

On the upside, the self-service restaurant’s atmosphere is cheerful and festive with its red checkerboard tablecloths and roaming musicians.
