Expert review of Bock Bistro

This highly regarded bistro-style restaurant is in the Corinthia Grand Hotel.

With links to the famous Bock winery in Villány, the restaurant has a good wine list, a relaxed atmosphere and a solid reputation for superb food at a fair price.

Food and drink: 

The bistro serves refined versions of Hungarian dishes, including carpaccio of mangalica pig (the traditional Hungarian breed), crispy goose leg and chicken goulash. The quality is excellent.

Ambience: 

The bistro is intimate in size and informal in atmosphere, with an accordion player entertaining diners. It’s light and airy - indeed, a not infrequent criticism is that it’s a touch too bright for those after a romantic evening meal.

Service: 

The staff are efficient and knowledgeable.

Location: 

On the ground floor of the Corinthia Grand Hotel Royal on the Great Boulevard, it's a short distance from Andrássy út and the bars of Liszt Ferenc tér.

Price advice: 

Given the quality, I reckon the prices are reasonable. The main courses average about 3,700 forints, while the mangalica carpaccio starter will set you back 1,700 forints.

several times, must book especially in the evenings, and if you want to dine outside in the summer, but of course this could be for smokers!
traditional hungarian updated. Staff are extremely knowledgable on wines. I love to see them slicing meats and the bread with 'dripping' is fantastic but dont eat too much it spoils dinner.Ask about the specials on the boards, as depending where you are sat you might not notice the extras, but normally they are pointed out, don't be shy and ask for help choosing.
