The Gellért Cafe was pleasant, with nice service and ordinary food. We were still in heaven from our bathing in the spa so it really didn’t matter. I’m not sure why but they made us walk outside in the freezing air from the spa lobby...More

The menu is quite varied and the goats cheese salad was delicious and the falafel were homemade. The service was excellent. The atmosphere was relaxed and there didn't seem to be a problem that everyone was in their swim wear.

Gellert Hill
If you want to treat your camera to some amazing
scenery, Gellért Hill is a must on your itinerary. A
funicular journey from the Chain Bridge along the
hillsides provides a fast connection between Buda and
Pest, hoisting visitors to panoramic vistas. Once on
top of the hill, you’ll find the Citadel dominate the
landscape with its imposing 19th century construction,
a site that’s hard to keep your eyes on without being

No reservations required, and you can eat here without using the baths, but you will be in the company of people in swimsuits! Very good cocktails and excellent service.
