Trendy places obviously focuses on wine, therefore wine bars and wine restaurants are featured frequently. However, we have realized that Hungary has several exciting, though not wine centered places. Craft beer is a hot topic, the national spirit, ‘pálinka’ is another story to tell, and we have many fabulous restaurants, bistros and bars, which are worth recommending – even if wine is not a key element of their concept

Macok Bistro – the place to eat in Eger

One of the 10 best restaurants of Hungarian countryside (Dining Guide magazine), Macok uses local ingredients like trout from neighbouring Szilvásvárad or artisan cheese from Bükk region. The wine list amazing: guests can choose from a wide range of Eger wines and some carefully selected wines from other wine regions of Hungary.

Macok is run by two couples: János Macsinka is the chef, his wife, Éva Csorba does the controlling, while Péter Szternák is the manager and head of the wine shop within the bistro (called Peti’s wine shop), and his wife, Tímea Dudás is responsible for marketing. So much love must be felt all around, and indeed it does! And the same care and attention characterises their other restaurant, Brumbrum and their hotel, Imola Udvarház Dessert Hotel.

Good for me if it’s good for you.

Nyereg – a “culturbistro” in the City Park of Budapest

When the idea of the Nyereg was born, the founders wanted to create a peaceful oasis where children, adults and forever youngsters may find a place where they can spend their time together. Nowadays guests can enjoy the harmony of the Park and the feeling of the culturbistro among the old oaks and willows at the center of Budapest second biggest park.

The building in which the family and dog-friendly restaurant is located came a long way through centuries, and as the oldest building of the City Park is its own living history. The cultural heritage once served as the side building of the Artesian Bath. Later on, it was the capital’s first holiday hotel where travellers who arrived from far away had the opportunity to take a rest, but for a couple years, the civil guards also used it as a cavalrypatrol. Years went by and the building eventually became one of the most popular meeting spots in Budapest.

Arrive on foot, by bike, by running or even on horseback, our gates are always open for you.
