Contemporary European
Elysée Bistro offers tasty meals and great view of the Hungarian Parliament at Kossuth square in the heart of the city. You can relax on our unique terrace at the most beautiful location of Budapest. We are the proud successor of Elysée Cafe, the once legendary coffee house founded in 1931. Our aim is to become the meeting point of gourmets, open to the novelties of gastronomy. We combine typical Hungarian and French bistro meals, always using the freshest ingredients. We await our guests in a friendly, homey atmosphere that combines elements of old-fashioned cafés and modern bistros. We also have live swing&jazz music played on Friday’s nights. We’re open from morning until the evening and offer breakfast, lunch and dinner.

I don’t expect New Year’s Day dining to be all that great. We had decided to go to a movie, then discovered that the movie was dubbed with no subtitles. Thinking quickly, using the “near me” function, Open Table suggested Elysée.
The fried pork crisps spread on brown bread with pickled shallots were decadent. And I would have been happy to have a second bowl of lentil soup, but the duck confit with cherry gravy(?!) was impossible to pass up. We found a VERY reasonable bottle of Gere Attila Cabernet Sauvignon that tied everything together. What a find!

Very good location near the Parliament. Nice goulash and hot starters. Service charges are extremely high (12.5% from the sum of your lunch).
