I keep revising and changing this list as I often try new places. I’m a big foodie and I’m happy to take you to a Budapest Foodie tour so that you can taste the best local treats.

These are my personal favorite restaurants in April 2019:

  • Stand Restaurant (with 1 Michelin Star they got in 2019)
  • Wine Kitchen (with 1 Michelin Star)
  • Rézkakas Bistro
  • Mazel Tov
  • Aszu Restaurant
  • Kazimir Bistro
  • Spinoza
  • Café Kör
  • Kőleves
  • Budapest Bistro

 I’ve received this article from three guests of mine at different occasions – and thank you so much guys for your preparations before your actual trip to Budapest. I need to tell that most of the places recommended by The New York Times are both fun and nice, still, I have the impression I can show you so much more when you come to visit my beautiful city.

Feel free to ask for my special recommendations!

To show how much local people love the Széchenyi baths, I can tell you that we also have a nickname for it and call it simply ‘Szecska’. It opened in 1913 and has a total of 18 indoor and outdoor swimming pools. It’s one of the most richly ornate buildings of the city with an architecture combining Neo-Renaissance and Classicist elements. One really has to see the main foyer where both the statues and mosaics are all realted to water and bathing culture.

I only recommend going to the Szecska in the summer for those who don’t mind crowds but it’s really quiet and enjoyable in the winter. I can take you to the Széchenyi if you book the Baths of Budapest  walking tour with me.
