Let us book your dinner and get 50% discount on the taxi

Budapest is a large city and it can be quite nice to have a taxi bringing you to the restaurant as you go out for dinner. To help our visitors arrange with this, we have made the following offer:

Let us book a dinner for you in any of the restaurants below, and we will give you 50% discount on the taxi. This means that from 2-4 persons the taxi price is max 2500 HUF (in most cases 1500 HUF), while for groups between 5-8 persons the price will be max 3500 HUF (in most cases 2500 HUF). The price is calculated based on the location of your hotel, so if it is far outside the citycenter the higher price should be expected.

If you would like to arrange with the transportation to the restaurant, just write it in the comment field the name of your hotel and that you request a transfer as you reserve your table, and we will write pick-up time and final price of the transfer in the confirmation that we normally send within 24-48 hours.

This offer is valid for the following restaurants, and only for dinner reservations (where the meal starts after 18.00):
Pampas Steakhouse
Matyas Pince
Sir Lancelot

2500 HUF = 9,40 EURO
3500 HUF = 13,15 EURO

Royal meal in Karpátia Budapest

Not long ago we got to enjoy an evening at Karpátia in Budapest, and we really felt good the time we spent there. Since the gipsy music starts around 18.00 every evening we went there 18.00 and got a table where we could enjoy the music, but still relax and not be disturbed by it.

Smoked farm ham with spicy cream cheese

As a starter we ate a “Hungarian appetiser platter with “mangalica” sausage and salami, paprika-flavoured ewe-cheese and vegetables” and a “Smoked farm ham with spicy cream cheese, blue grape jam and fresh baguette”. The portions were just perfect, and my wife commented that if she were at home she would stop eating after that. But, since we were out eating we did not stop after the starter.

After the good start we continued towards the main course with some real Hungarian meals; “Mangalica” pork medallions with spicy fresh “lecsó” and potato chips” and the second meal was “Pörkölt appetiser from veal, beef and chicken, with butter gnocchi”. I have never tasted three different Pörkölts at the same plate, but this was an easy way to find out which one is your own personal favorite. Both courses tasted great and with the starter already relaxing in our stomachs we started to feel very full.

Blackberry-yogurt cake

But, a good dinner needs to be finished with a good dessert. That is why we ended up ordering a “Piquant sour cherry strudel with cinnamon mousse”  and a “Blackberry-yogurt cake topped with bitter and white chocolate”. The strudel tasted as it should, the Blackberry yogurt cake was fine (nothing more), but by that time I felt so full that it didn’t really matter.

After a couple of hours we then headed home, completely satisfied and uncomfortable full!

It must be said that Karpátia is not the cheapest restaurant in Budapest, and the complete price of what we ate had a total price of around 18,000 Forint (appx. 65 Euro).  But it was a nice experience, the music was comfortable and we got to taste nice Hungarian specialities! So a visit to Karpátia can be recommend for those who want a nice Hungarian experience, in a traditional environment and at a central location.
