“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

Food was fine, but not by any means the best we ate in Budapest. Service was ok, with the exception of a server who didn't speak enough English to tell us about more than one of the 10 specials listed. English is WIDELY spoken in Budapest; hole in the wall places cheerfully described their food in English during our stay - why not an upscale restaurant praised by the NYTimes? If the food wasn't as good as it is, I'd rate Borkonyha lower, since the attractive dining room is so noisy even the twenty-somethings with us were uncomfortable.

“One of the bests bistros”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

I believe there is a few new restos in Budapest that are really worth to mention and Borkonyha is one of them. Meals are made with creativity and passion for food. You can also find Hungarian specialties, a wide range of good wines.

“Fantastic food, fantastic service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

REALLY delicious food. A lovely restaurent. We went there for a business dinner with a very discerning clientele and everybody was elated- also due to the delicious wine recommended by the competent and friendly waiter. Super- tip for Budapest.

“A wonderful dining experience in a good environment”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2012

Recommend to a reservation in advance at this restaurant because it is often full. We visited the restaurant on a Saturday night, had booked a table in advance, otherwise we would not get a table.
We were two people who ate 3-course a la carte, drank several glasses of wine and paid approx. 700 Norwegian kroner.
Smiling waiters make dining experience very well.
Perhaps a little noisy premises when it is full of people.
