We'd read in our guide book this was one of the places to try for breakfast. Located in the Jewish quarter, a traditional cafe serving European food with a Jewish twist. Good value set menu breakfast offering four or five items to choose from, juice and tea or coffee. Service was provided with a smile and fast. Good way to... More

Having read about this place, we were keen to check it out on our first night in Budapest. It's in the Jewish District and very easy to find. The staff were really friendly and the place had a great atmosphere - definitely helped by the live piano. The food is a good selection and we had a hummus dish and... More

We were staying in the area and Spinoza caught our eye, as it advertised Hungarian food with a touch of Israelian. The place is small and, as I understand, quite crowded for dinner, but we went for lunch and were seated immediately. We had the goulash soup, which was one of the best I tried ever and the Cholen, a... More

Went on the Klezmer night which included a meal. The concert was in a very small, hot room at the back of the restaurant. Too many people crammed in, would have left if I could have got out. Although the musicians were talented and the singer had a lovely voice, the show was a complete embarrassment. The singer going offstage... More

Neighbourhood Profile
District VII / Jewish Quarter
District VII is the very heart of Budapest and houses the city’s Jewish Quarter. Its streets are lively and colorful, its buildings narrate different histories in an assortment of architectural styles, and its cafes and bars are frequented and loved by the enthusiastic crowds. Grand and magnificent, the striking star of the district is the Great Synagogue, the largest in Europe and one of the biggest in the world. Distinctly Moorish in style, crowned by the twin onion shaped domes, the Synagogue is the very emblem of District VII and one of the main attractions in the capital.
