About
Welcome to Terv Presszó! Located in the heart of Budapest on Nádor utca since 1954. Originally created as a local neighborhood cafe/pub, the Terv Presszó later became the local hangout of writers and artists. The "presszó", once ubiquitous in Budapest during socialist times, functioned as something between a traditional cafe, a cukrászda and a pub. Such places are disappearing from the Budapest scene and the Terv, along with the Bambi, the Ibolya and a few others, are carrying on the "presszó" tradition. Now a cafe and restaurant, the Terv features a full bar, serving beer, Hungarian wines and cocktails. We also offer traditional Hungarian food like Goulash served in a bogrács, chicken paprikás,

We ate here based on reviews and were not disappointed. The service and the food were both outstanding. Very reasonably priced especially for the high quality meals

I love the vintage bar vibe here. Pork is high quality even though it's super cheap comparing other places. Beer is ok.

It is cozy place with friendly stuff (who spoke English). We ordered beef stew with potatoes and pork with fried potatoes. Food was very good. There are around 6 main courses, so not so much choice. Also, it is not a place where you can...have romantic dinner (tables are close to each other and very noisy, because it is usually full of people).More

Greeted by friendly servers on unbooked lunch for two. Inside is unpretentious but with character, and our goulash came in metal bowls filled to the brim. Tasted just great and one of of struggled with the portion size! In hindsight we could have shared just...one bowl for a lunch, if possible, but result was that we did not need any large dinner later in the day. Agreed upsold to a large glass of wine each, and bill still came to around £24 for two. Good value for what we got, and enjoyed!More

We reserved a table prior to our family trip for the first evening based on reviews and proximity to Sofitel hotel Chain Bridge. Glad we did as it was busy at 7.30 and full of local young and old. Very nice welcome attentive service as...when needed. No starters ordered (Glad we didn't as mains were ample size). Local pork stew, Beef and chicken dishes ordered and younger member decided on burger. All of these dishes were very tasty and excellent great value for money. Check out website for menu and prices. You can just go for drinks and nibbles if desired. Terv Presszo has great staff, ambiance and homely feel with interesting decor from the past. We would totally recommend a visit any time of day during any stay in the area. Thank you guys for a great start to our trip to Budapest.More

Stumbled on this place just after lunch time and stopped had some soup (delicious) and a few beers. A fantastic traditional place, a great find. The service was great and a good price as well. We booked a table for four that evening. Again the...service was fantastic and a very friendly atmosphere. The food came out in a very short time and was piping hot and absolutely delicious. A fantastic old authentic bar/restaurant with great service and delicious food at very good prices. If you go here first I bet you will go back, We will.More
