“Paulaner brewpub and restaurant. The place looks very good and the food is delicious. Paulaner beers on tap. The service is okey. Sadly, it’s in a shopping mall.“

“Located close to a lot of restaurants and bars in a cellar. Couple of Hungarian beers on tap and a two fridges with bottles. Totally uninterested bar staff. Double charged my girlfriends wine because he poured a big glass and refused to open a tab for my table. Decent priced as everything in Budapest.“

“A beutiful garden with a fountain on it’s center. Mostly bottled beers from the Békésszentandrási Szent András Sörfozde and some other craft and mainstream beers, bottled and tapped. Not a beer pub/garden, there is a lot of other drinks. Children playhouse and toys in the garden.“

“Dive-y looking cellar bar with outdoor seating area also. Service was pretty good, there was a mix-up with my food order, which was put right but not without a certain degree of grumbling. Tap list was OK, I tried a local IPA and an IIPA, both of which were decent. Saw quite a few bottles but did not see a proper list, so difficult to tell what they had. Food (I had the ribs) was rather good. Price of both food and drink seemed very reasonable. Worth a visit for sure.“

62 /100 TUZOLTO STR. 22. / TűZOLTÓ UTCA 22.
“Was rather disappointed with this place. Location is quite cool - the bar is in a partially covered courtyard along with other bars and restaurants. Decor has a somewhat shabby industrial feel to it. The guy that served me was quite surly, was reluctant to answer a pretty simple question about which one of the two IPA’s on tap he would recommend. Tap list is an impressive 20 beers BUT only 8 were on when I visited, which I found a bit crap really. Can understand one or two beers being off but not more than half of the lines. No food here but stuff in other places in the courtyard looked good. Prices were decent. Not a bad place but a bit off the beaten track and not worth the effort if they have less than half of their taps on.“

“Well-lit, modern bar with funky colourful decor. Only downside for me was that they were playing some kind of horrible dance music the whole time - not loud enough to be really annoying but definitely a bit distracting. Service was friendly and knowledgeable. Tap list was good and bottle list even better. Didn’t see any ’real’ food on offer but they did have a fridge full of cheese. Prices seemed OK, imports were obviously more expensive. Definitely worth a look, the nicest place that I experienced in my short stay in this city.“

“Visited the 11th June 2017 - Nice place with great beer selection, you really enjoy it in summer near to the river. Good selection and good price. Service is friendly but not so efficient.“

“Excellent beer in the Castle district just off the wall with better prices then anything inside the wall. 3 taps or over 50 bottled beers from all around the world. Expert, helpful staff. Well worth for several visits to taste more of the varying selection of craft beer.“

“A small place in a lovely area with only Hungarian craft beer (and also one Brewdog’s). Goodservice and very low prices. A nice lace for someone who’s looking for local beers.“

“Really fun and pleasant atmosphere. The bartender is very friendly. If you need any recommendation on stuff from their selection, just ask him. There are 10 taps and many bottles. One fridge is full of local craft beer. Definitely one of the best bars in Budapest.“

“Visited on 26th May 2017. Brewpub a few doors down from Szimpla Kert. It’s got 2 floors with a large single room downstairs and upstairs being split into two with a hole in the centre of the larger room, seating arranged around it to peer to the bar down below. Had around 8 taps of their own beer on, a mix of styles, pumpclips were hand written with the style of beer and hop on each of them, service was good as where prices and the quality was pretty solid. We were also allowed to bring in food from the many takeaways and food carts around the area. It’s in the area where a lot of the best venues are so take a stroll down. It’s a decent venue.“

“Visited on 27th May 2017. Stopped off here as it’s about a 10 min walk from Nyugati station. It’s a cellar bar which goes back a long way, bar at the front and plenty of seating in a large room at the rear. A decent range of beers from local craft brewers, prices and service was good. A decent place, not sure it’s a brewpub.“

“Visited on 27th May 2017. Large, modern, café bar on a main road in central Budapest. It’s a bright place, lots of seating and some tables outside, food served was burger and chips that was OK. Beer range was pretty good with a good mix of styles, don’t think this is a brewpub but may act as a taproom. The breweries weren’t listed which really didn’t help finding beers. Service and prices OK. Decent enough stop.“

“Visited on 26th May 2017. Large bottle shop with a bar inside over the road from Hopaholic. It’s got a huge range of world beers, all well laid out in country order. It was really popular so had to stand which wasn’t a hardship with lots of good beers to look at, especially as I had a beer from the bar in my hand whilst doing this. Staff were friendly, prices good. Really liked this place and a must visit.“

“Visited on 26th May 2017. Large brewpub on a main road and tram route in central Budapest. It’s a huge place, loud music, modern interior and at least 2 floors. A good range of Rizmajer beers on tap, language barrier was a little difficult here and about the only place we had trouble but nothing insurmountable. Prices were OK. Not sure I’d dash back but another good ticking stop off.“

“Visited on 26th May 2017. Small bar on a main road and tram route in Budapest. It had a few tables outside and sat on one of those. No menus with the beer range so had to look in the bar, looked quite a nice place. Service was a little slow and took ages to serve us and then to collect payment. Beer range was actually pretty good with some good Hungarian craft beer on tap. Prices were decent. It was OK and a handy stop off as a few bars in the area.“

“Visited on 26th May 2017. Small bottle shop with some home brew supplies not far from Beer and Cheese. It’s got a great array of both Hungarian and German beers, some of which were dusty which just added to the ambiance and feel of the place. Staff were super helpful and friendly and picked up a few more bottles. Prices were good. Liked this place a lot“

“Visited on 26th May 2017. Smart, modern looking bar on a busy main road and tram route. It’s got a large single room with plenty of seating, a bar at the front and a cheese fridge toward the back. Beer range is decent enough with a good range of local craft from a couple of breweries. Opted for a cheese plate that was pretty good and accompanied the beer really well. Service was really friendly. Liked this place, if you like beer and cheese then this is a must!“

“Visited on 26th May 2017. Nice bottle shop on a nice quiet street. Have a whole wall of beers plus some wine. Really good range of Hungarian craft beer, picked up some bottles for the next days trip. The staff were friendly and helpful and the prices were decent. If you need some Hungarian craft beer this is a decent spot.“

“Visited on 26th May 2017. 2 roomed bar on a busy main road in central Budapest. It’s quite open plan, at the bar the seating is a pair of swings that is pretty different and a little odd. Seems to act as the brewery tap as Monyo but does have a couple of guests on and a few bottles in the fridge, service and prices were good. Definitely worth a stop, didn’t see much of their beer elsewhere in the city.“

“Visited on 26th May 2017. Modern craft beer bar on the ground floor of the Marriott hotel in a nice square by the river. It’s quite modern and stark inside, the marionettes are on each of the taps, which is cool. A decent range of Hungarian craft beer on tap, prices and service was good. We sat outside and another nice place to enjoy the sunshine with a beer.“

“Visited on 26th May 2017, stopped at the nearest venue after a days walking around Pest and the Castle. English style pub in the city, it’s décor is pretty decent and it’s got the classic features, it definitely appeals to Brits! Beer range has some UK beers and a selection of Hungarian macro beers, scooped in a couple of new pale lagers and had a little rest before pressing onto better places, service was OK, prices OK. Wouldn’t rush back but it served a purpose“

“Visited on 26th May 2017. Cellar bar with a few tables on the pavement across the road and tram lines from the Danube and with a few Belgian bars nearby. Inside is pretty nice, lots of wood, the steps down are pretty cool and a minor miracle of design. Opted for an outside table and watched the trams go by, decent Belgian beer range, service was good. We shared a cheese platter that was pretty decent and good value, service and prices good. Liked this place.“

“Visited on 26th May 2016. Corner Belgian bar on the riverside on the opposite bank to the impressive Parliament building. We sat outside on the covered verandah and ordered drinks. The range of beer is OK, pretty standard macro Belgian beer, picked up a new tick but nothing that rateable, service was good, prices OK. It’s a nice spot to watch the world go by with a beer in your hand but better places in the City“

“Visited on 25th May 2017. In a block of quite a few decent venues this is the place I liked the most. It’s got a nice modern feel to it, plenty of seating on ground floor plus upstairs, a great range of Hungarian craft beer on tap, the range had beers we didn’t see in many other places and some interesting stuff, service was good, prices good value. If want some good Hungarian craft beer then this is a really good start.“

“Visited on 25th May 2017. 2 level craft beer bar. It’s got a modern look to the place, it was very popular with the place being heaving, the upstairs seating area being packed. Beer range is a good mix of local and more exotic craft beers, the prices are decent and service was good. It’s a decent place, and one I would recommend.“

“Visited on 25th May 2017. Small bar just around the corner from Start. It’s very similar decor to Brewdog, modern, industrial chic. Beer range on keg had a couple of Brewdog beers plus international guests and a couple of Hungarian beers, bottle selection was good but not much local stuff. Prices were a lot steeper than other places in the city, service was decent enough. I liked the place but not in Hungary to drink Brewdog!“

“Visited on 25th May 2017. Hard to describe this place but I’ll give it a go. It’s a multi level collection of rooms around a courtyard, the decor is crazy with different themed rooms and bar in many of them. It’s like an Irish Theme pub gone rogue. It’s certainly a popular hang out with tourist and locals. Beer wise the range is not that exciting although I did scoop in a Slovenian beer (Lasko Dark). It’s more mainstream than craft beer. Service and prices are decent enough. It’s definitely worth a visit for the pub.“
