Budapest Restaurant Week

Budapest Restaurant Week is a one week dining festival in Budapest. As the festival is relatively new (launched in 2011, May), there are no set dates yet. Budapest Restaurant Week was brought about by the worldwide movement of restaurants, the recipe of which proved to be a huge success: give a chance to a lot more people to eat out well at half the usual price.

Now who could resist to this offer? Apparently not many, not in Budapest for sure. B

ooking your chosen restaurant in advance is a must if you do not wish to wait for a long time to get in, and then get served.

Some say it is a great opportunity to try what Budapest has to offer.

But if you do not like waiting for your meals – not even for discounts – we recommend eating out on another day, or at another restaurant, which does not participate in this cool food event.

Not all restaurants are part of the Budapest Restaurant Week. But some of the top Budapest restaurants do.

Each restaurant in the Budapest Restaurant Week has a special fixed priced menu for approx. HUF 3,300  (the festival menu includes an appetizer, a main meal and a dessert). Reservations for the Budapest Restaurant Week usually start 4 weeks in advance of the event.

The official website of the Budapest Restaurant Week is, where you can book your seats in advance.
