Expert review of Gerloczy
The Gerlóczy is a real favourite of mine. Sitting on a quiet, tree-shaded square, it’s something of an oasis among the busier streets of Pest’s downtown. With an elegant interior and tables on the square outside, you really could be relaxing in a café in the heart of Paris.
The Gerlóczy caters equally well for those after a breakfast omelette, a mid-morning coffee and pastry or a substantial evening meal. The main menu offers an eclectic selection of Hungarian classics (including stuffed cabbage and goulash soup), Mediterranean pasta dishes and more filling options featuring game, chicken, beef and pork.
There’s an old-fashioned elegance about this café, and a bustling, bubby atmosphere, with live harp music playing in the evening. It’s popular with locals and tourists alike.
The waistcoated waiters are efficient and polite.
On the peaceful Kamermayer tér, in between Deák tér and Ferenciek tere, it's a short walk east from Váci utca.
The food is good value. Main courses average at around 2,500 forints, and you can get lighter bites for a good deal less.
