Expert review of Café Pierrot

This is a long-standing cellar restaurant in the Castle District.

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.

Food and drink: 

There are Hungarian and contemporary European selections on the menu, ranging from goose liver to Dover sole.

Ambience: 

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.

Service: 

The service has been fine during my visits.

Location: 

It's at the northern end of Fortuna utca in the Castle District, and a short distance from the Matthias Church.

Price advice: 

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.
