Named after the most famous Hungarian actress of the 19th century, Déryné is a traditional yet sophisticated bistro. The history of the bistro goes back to 1914 when confectioner Jozsef Auguszt opened his café here. Later, in the 50’s it becme a social meeting place for artists and three years ago it underwent a complete renovation and redesign. This actually took longer than expected, as World War II relics were uncovered in the cellar. This opened up the space and the cellar became an extention of the restaurant.
The wine list is extensive with a selection of Hungarian vintage wines from the best wineries and wine regions like Villány, Tokaj, Eger, Etyek and Szekszárd. The signature ‘house’ wine, especially made for Déryné, comes from the Takler Winery in Szekszárd.
Their signature lemonade, flavored with citrus grape, elderflower, raspberry, apple and mint is a favorite drink. The on site bakery and patisserie makes delicious baguettes and other delicacies, like plum strudels.
Déryné is a café, bistro, wine cellar, piano bar and restaurant. The special lighting, changed four times a day, sets the mood for a cozy atmosphere. You can come for breakfast, coffee, lunch and dinner or enjoy some pastries. There is live piano music every afternoon and jazz and swing in the evening on weekends.
