First Review by Ati

Wonderful experience - Edit

This place was such a great experience. Food was very tasty, served quickly by a very nice waitress. Faux foie gras was just delicious, my friend was also very satisifed. It is a very nice place to go for a date or another special occasion

Pros: decent atmosphere, staff, plating

Cute little cafe! - Edit

A very pretty little cafe with super friendly staff. They have a different menu each day with a cafeteria style service where you take a tray, queue and point at what you’d like. I think they also have an a la carte menu too. My boyfriend and I both had a deliciously creamy pumpkin and aubergine curry which came with a choice of sides - rice, potatoes, quinoa etc. The other options that day were a Thai coconut soup, lentil fritters, and a few others. There’s also a salad bar and desserts.
We also had a cappuccino and a latte with a choice of soy or rice milk. Altogether, it cost 3900 - about £11. Definitely recommend for a quick lunch!

Pros: Good choices, Friendly staff, Cute decor

Cons: The food could be a little hotter

New experience - Edit

The food was different from most vegan places I've tried. It was good but not great. And the staff were not the friendliest.

A must-try vegan restaurant - Edit

We had an a la carte style lunch which consisted of peanut butter tofu, zuchinni fritters (with a nice dipping sauce), mashed potatos, and a colorful salad. Every item was delicious! The meal felt very fresh and nutritious yet did not compromise on flavor. The quantity was very generous too and it provided fuel for a long day's walk exploring Budapest, having walked over from the Buda side. I like that the food was unique and not typical 'western' vegan cuisine. Staff was very friendly and helpful with our ordering. Highly recommend!

Disappointed - Edit

First of all, there was no breakfast, raw cakws nor fresh smoothies available at the moment (we came for this and the description suggested this). Second, the atmosphere was not very pleasant, crowded, elevator music, weird kitsh "doll house" deco.... and third, the food. It was dry, cold, lifeless, tasteless. We had the lunch menu which was very unclear to me. It was overpriced for what it was, I could do much better myself at home. I just don't understand the hype about this place, if I could leave 1 star I would. Looooots to improve

average place - Edit

it's a dual place, during office hours you can eat from menu, which is fine, but not too special. in the weekends you can order a la carte, these are more interesting meals, for double price

Fantastic - Edit

Staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. We found Great Bistro was the best place for breakfast in Budapest and visited twice during our trip.
The omelette with salad and bacon is delicious!

lovely breakfast place! - Edit

Finding somewhere which serves vegan food and opens earlier than 11am in Budapest is a challenge - Great Bistro opens at 8am and has a great range for breakfast. I had some lovely buckwheat pancakes with agave and cinnamon (you can have with jam and PB instead), and I've got my eye on the omelette for next time! They also do tofu bacon sandwiches. Only the breakfast menu was in English so I'm not sure what they do for lunch etc. Had a lovely rice milk coffee, and the fresh smoothies looked great too.
Friendly staff, good music, fair prices - definitely worth a visit!

Amazing restaurant and service - Edit

I visited Great bistro while I was in Budapest and a guy by the name of Akos was very friendly and provided great customer service. I needed to wait for a friend to pick me up after the restaurant closed and he allowed me to stay waiting. The next day I visited the restaurant again and I had an amazing breakfast. Food taste delishious and they are very friendly. Akos again provided guideance for the city so that I can enjoy time in Budapest. I will visit again and I highly recommend visiting Great Bistro. Thanks Akos!

Pros: Customer Service, Quality of Food, Location

Cons: None, None, None

Nice vegan - Edit

There are so many awesome vegan places in Budapest, and this is one of them. Great Bistro is unique, though, because it's a bit more "upscale" than others. That is not to say that they are snooty or prim - this is a casual and welcoming place. Rather, their dishes are crafted a bit more delicately, which was a nice contrast to the lots of (awesome) fried and hearty vegan offerings that we've had elsewhere in Budapest.

We ordered their chilled strawberry soup, saffron soup, risotto, and purple potato gnocchi. All of these were beautifully presented and had a nice balance of flavors and textures. Everything tasted great. The prices were a bit higher than we were used to in Budapest (especially given the modest portions), but it's because you're getting great quality. This is a nice spot for a date or if you're just looking for a more refined meal.

Pros: Presentation, Balanced flavors and texture, Bright, attractive interior

good food, good prices - Edit

They do a great vegan bacon sandwich which was amazing as bacon is one of the things I've missed as a vegan. Although the menu for breakfast is quite small but I found it to be a good quality food place.

breakfast - Edit

I was really happy to find a vegan place open for breakfast!
A bit disappointed cause they only had one sweet option and I only got 2 pancakes for the price, but it was good. Maybe it could be mentioned on the menu, as I was expecting a pile of them, like you usually see.
Nice atmosphere.

Pros: opens early

Cons: expensive
