Best Bar Food in Budapest

April 25th, 2024

You’re ready to go out on the town and you’re wondering: Where is there good bar food in Budapest? You can’t wait to eat, you can’t wait to drink--so why not do both at the same time? Here’s our roundup of Budapest bars with the best bar food!


Meaning “little plant”, Kisüzem is a popular local hangout with a solid kitchen. Although it’s on the fringe of the party district, this little bar still overflows with people looking for a hip night out, and you can be one of them!

During the day it doubles as a gallery for local artwork and a sunlit working space, and you can take advantage of its rotating menu (vegetarian options available). If you’re looking for a cool place to drink and dine in Budapest on a budget, try Kisüzem out!

Hoff House

Have you been craving hot wings, nachos, or other American-style bar food? Head on over to Hoff House. Hoff is an expat-friendly bar with an international crowd, live music, and weekly events.

They take their bar food very seriously (why else have so many wing sauces to choose from) and are always adding new tasty tidbits to their menu. Whether you’re there for a pub quiz, karaoke night, or just to chill, rest assured you’ll have lots of delicious bar food at your fingertips!

Mátra Borozó

Head over to a quiet street in Buda and find that simplicity reigns king. Here at Mátra you can feast as if you were in the Hungarian countryside: Fluffy bread, tart mustard, and greasy sausages make up the plates, and we’re convinced that there’s nothing that pairs better with a cold beer! Book a table and dig in!

Vicky Barcelona

Located on sparkling Gozsdu Udvar, Vicky Barcelona Tapas Bar makes sure that you can drink and snack all night long. Dive into Spanish wines and finger foods, or get a plate to share! And if you time it right, you can catch a flamenco performance or some lively music. Dinner and a show--sounds good to us!
