Best for Dining alone - Expert review of Cafe Kor

This is a popular, buzzy restaurant near St Stephen’s Basilica.

Café Kör has been a fixture on the list of Budapesters’ favourite restaurants for a few years now. It’s generally busy, particularly at lunchtime when it gets crowded with business types.

Food and drink: 

In my experience, the food is good but not outstanding. You can choose from Hungarian and international dishes, with daily specials handwritten on a roll of paper attached to the wall.

Ambience: 

The restaurant has the flavour of an old-fashioned bistro, with neat wall lamps, terracotta colours and diners reading newspapers over lunch. In truth, I suspect that Café Kör’s popularity has as much to do with its ambience as its food.

Service: 

The service is friendly and efficient. 

Location: 

It's very central, on the quiet Sas utca a short distance from St Stephen's Basilica.

Price advice: 

The menu falls within the medium price band, with main courses around 2,500 forints to 4,500 forints. Note that credit cards are not accepted.
