Budapest - wining & dining and clubbing

In order to save you guys some trouble I took it as my responsibility to visit as many places as possible to get a good overview of what’s on offer:) Budapest’s got loads of places for having a good time – cafes, restaurants, pubs, clubs, fast-food places. Altogether I visited 15 of them. Here’s my selection.

For a nice lunch with good food for a reasonable price go to Castro – the meals are big, delicious and they also offer a selection of Serbian food. Another place with more traditional food selection is Central Kávéház.

For a good and BIG coffee I suggest you go to Goethe Insitute where you can virtually buy a whole 400 ml bowl of excellent café latte. For somewhat smaller coffee and a nice chilling on pillows there’s an adorable little place called Mai Manó. And for a coffee and the best cheesecake ever, go to Soul Café.

For the first drinks in the evening a cool place is Szimpla Kert, which is a bit more on alternative side and probably better in summer but a great place to go and seems like always full of people. After that you can head on for more drinks and dancing in a club called Szoda – upstairs for chilling and drinking and downstairs for dancing.
For an after-party-middle-of the-night snack head to Nagyipalacsinta …mmm…all the varieties of filled pancakes. This is a place to go also for breakfast or lunch or dinner as it’s open 24 hours, the food’s delicious and the prices cheap.
