Bib Gourmand is an award by Michelin to "small, charming" restaurants that offer excellent food at good value—technically, two courses and a glass or wine or a dessert for $40 or less, excluding tax and tip. Currently, the below three Budapest restaurants can boast a Bib Gourmand. Here you can check out Budapest's Michelin-starred restaurants, too.
The sleepy outer part of Budapest's District 9 is an unlikely place for an upscale French restaurant, so it's against the odds that here hides Petrus, the Bib Gourmand-awarded bistro of Hungarian owner-chef Zoltán Feke. You might think that the vintage Citroën car parked inside the restaurant overdoes the French countryside vibes, but the snug space is comfortably elegant. Petrus's slim menu features both classic French bistro food — think onion soup and baked camambert — and fine dining fare. The tasting menu skews to the latter, the a la carte offerings the former.
