Bestia is a bustling restaurant in the heart of Budapest, specializing in grilled meats. With steep price points, a picture-postcard view of the St. Stephen’s Basilica, and a flashy, industrial chic interior, it's become a favorite for well-heeled, trendy tourists.

If you’re feeling adventurous, start your meal with the rich, roasted bone marrow arriving on two massive slabs of bone and pairing perfectly with the toasted bread provided on the side (€9). One of their signature dishes is the smoked pork ribs (€19)—made in a Josper charcoal burning oven—that packs a smoky flavor and comes glazed in a sweet-and-savory barbecue sauce. You are, however, better off skipping the undersized Angus burger with sad-looking roast potatoes for a whopping €15.

Bestia's full-service cocktail bar offers 12 types of local craft beers on draft. To ensure an elevated mood, a DJ spins ear-catching tunes five nights a week, from Tuesday to Saturday, from 8 p.m. on.
