Regős is a traditional Hungarian restaurant located a bit outside the city center on a tranquil street not far off Andrássy Avenue. The inside of this below-ground space is decked out in kitschy decor, red-and-white checkered tablecloths, and wooden banquettes. The long menu features traditional Hungarian staples like goulash soup, paprikash, various schnitzel dishes, and stuffed cabbage.
The food is far from memorable, but here you can sample a wide array of local foods at relatively friendly price points (mains are €8-10). The beef stew with egg barley (pörkölt), and the Gundel palacsinta, crepes smothered in chocolate sauce and filled with ground walnuts, are also good. Hungarian beers and wines are also served; many tourists come here so reservations are recommended.
