Borkonyha is a restaurant that has that cozy bistro atmosphere, just steps from the beautiful Saint Stephen's Basilica, some nice seating space outside and pleasant, unpretentious decor inside. The menu focuses on modern Hungarian cuisine, but nothing too extravagant, just fine dining style, classics like Mangalica pork, confit duck leg, rabbit or fish, but with a touch of creativity. It is not an extensive menu, but it's been carefully selected and together with the day's specials, it has something for everyone.
Having dessert just to have an excuse to drink some Tokaji is one of those nice traditions we embraced in this trip, and it didn't disappoint here either.
Prices are not extremely high considering the quality, portions and recently awarded Michelin star, our total for 2 main courses, 2 glasses of wine, 1 dessert and 2 glasses of Tokaji was of about 20000 HUF (around 70 euros). Sure, not the cheapest but OK for a special ocasion.
Since the restaurant is very popular due to its delicious food, location and of course, the Michelin star, you should book in advance (e-mail or phone).
