    The service is very good, as it should be in real good places, you are served in a professional way by real professional waiters.
    I had breakfast only, but I was fully satisfied. Cappuccino and a cranberry roll, very fresh, tasty and well presented.
    Situated at Kamermayer Károly tér.
    This square is named after the united city's first mayor (Budapest was only united in 1873 when it became an amalgamation of Buda, Pest, Obuda and Margaret Island). A statue of the mayor stands in the centre of the square. The two imposing buildings, which also stand on the square, are the Pest County Council building (painted a soft green) and the Budapest Town Hall over to the right.

    The Gerloczy restaurant & cafe: Italian food with Hungarian taste

    Gerlpoczy restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere. You can either sit inside and listen to live Hungarian music - the typical sentimental melodies sounding real nice, or if you prefer fresh air, you can sit on the terrace. You will not be cold - not only there are heaters, but you will also get a warm blanket.
    The service at Gerloczy is excellent. Waiters speak English - it is scented with that lovely Hungarian accent - and they are very helpful as to advising you or recommending their specialties.
    Food itself is excellent. Portions are more than enough for one person - although if you are American, they might seem small ;-). Gerloczy offers the combination of Hungarian and Italian cuisine (as you may have noticed, Italian cuisine is very common in Central Europe. What I like about this restaurant is that they tend to have their weekly offers - e.g. last Sunday when I visited it, they had so called "mushroom days". They even offered me Mushroom capuccino, but I did not dare trying it.
    I chose cold coffee with orange scent and milk foam - simply delicious!

    They also have quite a wide selection of Hungarian wines - and at very reasonable prices!

    Gerlóczy Cafe & Restaurant: How a restaurant should be!

    We discovered this restaurant on our very first night in Budapest, and it was the perfect start for our holiday. This was exactly the kind of restaurant I was looking for: on a nice and quiet square, small, friendly service, very nice and authentic eating room, ... . It had a great atmosphere, with an open kitchen and a man playing very nice music on the harp.
    We ate there twice and every time our food was delicious, as were the desserts. I can't describe it better as honest food: simple dishes that were very very well prepared.
    The house wine was good, and the prices were definitely ok (more or less one third less of what we pay in Brussels).

    Favorite Dish: It was a daily special, so it's not on the menu, but: Deer stew with grapes and Hungarian rösti. My god, I almost cried when my plate was finished. :-)

    Today Gerlócy Cafe is one of the best eating place in Budapest downtown. Some kind of french style restaurant in the heart of the city in a peaceful romantic square.
    Hungarian and international dishes, daily offers varied to suite the season, Fish-days on Friday, Jew delicacy onSaturday, wide selection of wines, freshly baked breads, breakfst from 7.00
    In the evening an old man play on the harp (jazz).
    Gerlóczy was a Parisian scene in Steven Spielberg's 'Munich' production.

    Favorite Dish: Hungarian foods made from excellent raw material.
