Castro Bistro

The key attractions at this laid back, artistic bistro at the entrance of the party district (District 7) are the atmosphere and flavorful goulash, which comes with gigantic pieces of sliced bread. Beware though, that the food can occasionally be disappointing. On recent visits, the tastes of both the goulash and the Serbian pljekavica, previously signature plates of the house, fell short by a wide margin. Both sections of the space feature unique posters and other interesting work done by local Hungarian artists. A diverse, mainly local crowd comes here to wind down in the evenings. They offer cheap, and decent prix fixe lunch on weekdays.

Overall, the ambiance is the main appeal of Castro Bistro, but you should probably stick to drinks here, and go elsewhere for dinner.
