A bustling district that makes up downtown Budapest, District V is a lively area filled with shops, bars and restaurants – including some of the finest in the city (3 of its 4 Michelin-starred eateries can be found here). There’s plenty to choose from when it comes to finding a great place to eat here, so we’ve rounded up some of the best places to grab a bite.
One of Budapest’s most popular restaurants (booking is essential), Zeller is a family-run establishment that takes pride in offering locally sourced ingredients and delicious Hungarian cuisine. Formerly located in a small cellar-style eatery slightly off the beaten path, the restaurant recently moved to a light, bright and more sizeable space in downtown Budapest. Dishes toe the line between casual and fine dining, with home-style cooking given a sophisticated update. High standards, mouth-watering flavours and friendly service are all to be expected, and those lucky enough to get a table are unlikely to be disappointed.
Tip: Can’t get a table in the evening? The restaurant is also open at lunch, and reservations are easier to come by.
