Expert review of Café Pierrot
Occupying the arching cellar of a 13th-century building, the Pierrot has been operating here for almost 30 years, and is a good spot for a meal after a day exploring the Castle District.
There are Hungarian and contemporary European selections on the menu, ranging from goose liver to Dover sole.
The atmosphere is relaxed in the narrow, arching restaurant. Its whitewashed walls are adorned with images of the pantomime clown that gives the place its name. A pianist plays in the background.
The service has been fine during my visits.
It's at the northern end of Fortuna utca in the Castle District, and a short distance from the Matthias Church.
Café Pierrot isn’t the cheapest of restaurants (although that’s not unusual in the Castle District where prices are at a premium); expect to pay up to 5,000 forints for a main course.
