Beautiful Budapest

Since my amazing birthday, I have been in Budapest with my wonderful family. It has been such a lovely trip, albeit not finished yet, and it makes me appreciate all the wonderful things that I love about this city.

We have lived in Budapest for about 4 years now, and I still sometimes feel like a tourist. Every time I come back I find exciting new places to explore. Recently, I’ve been to a couple places in Budapest that I think is fantastic and thought I’d share some of them with you!

The first is Déryné Bisztro in District 1 on the Buda side. It is a beautiful restaurant that serves up tasty European dishes as well as selling HUGE meringues! It was such a lovely day, so we sat outside and enjoyed some Elderflower Lemonade and homemade bread while we waited for our mains. I ordered the Angus Burger – which was absolutely breathtaking. It came with some potato slices and sauce that the waiter drizzled over the top of the bun. Now, I have never seen a burger look that beautiful and posh before! I LOVED it.

Would definitely recommend visiting Déryné if you find yourself in Budapest. It is a little pricey, but the food makes it worth it. My mum had the duck salad, which was mouth-wateringly good! Sadly, I was far too hungry to even wait to take photos of my food, but next time I most certainly will!

The second place is Pata Negra in Buda. It’s a tapas restaurant with a Spanish feel to the place. There were quite a few of us as I tagged along to a dinner with my mum and her friends, but there was so much choice in food and wine, it was brilliant.

When we got there, the Waiters put about 6 small dishes on the table to share between 4 people so you could pick and choose what you wanted. This ranged from potatoes, olives, and couscous to chorizo sausage in red wine, meatballs, and lemon chicken. It was such a lovely evening that was topped off with some incredible white Spanish wine (the name of which has escaped me).

Overall, the last couple of days have been wonderful and I have been to so many lovely restaurants in Budapest. If you ever get a chance to go to Budapest, make sure you try these restaurants, as they were simply divine. I will update you so more on other places to go as my time here continues, but for now, I’ll leave you with these!

Love, Ellie

    Hi Ellie,
    Fantastic blog! Well done.
    We loved Budapest when we visited a few years ago and I do hope I will come back another time to explore further.
    Massive good luck with the job hunting – if there is anything we can do to help…
    Hope to see you soon,
