Budapest, Hungary: Firkász Kávéház-Étterem (video)

We decided to try some Hungarian cuisine at this small restaurant that was described as a popular place for locals. We ended up encountering more foreigners than locals in the place, but that did not detract from the great experience offered here.

Upon entering the restaurant, the atmosphere washes over you, with the antique items on the wall and wine bottles lining the perimeter of the room accentuated by the full-bodied tones rising from the corner piano player. Class.

Not bad prices either- for approximately the equivalent of 60€ we each were able to get a two course meal of traditional Hungarian offerings along with a bottle of wine to share between us.
