Kéhli, located in the oldest part of Buda, is over 100 years old. It first opened in 1899 as a small family-style restaurant. It still serves hearty, traditional Hungarian food. Portions are generous and very well prepared. This is the place to try traditional Hungarian dishes, like the hot-pot with bone marrow, which is truly authentic.
There is live Gypsy music every night (except Mondays and Tuesdays when Austrian folk music is played).
Insider Tip: Kéhli was a favorite of Gyula Krúdy (1878–1933), a Hungarian writer and journalist, who relished eating and drinking and wrote affectionately about Hungarian food and dishes in his novels. To date, Kéhli's menu contains some of his quotations.
