When weekends arrive I usually have my lunch at Castro. It is a kind of place where you lose the sense of time, I can sit there for hours enjoying the lively spirit. It seems,others too: Julian Moore an English author wrote his novel (Fragments of Berossus) at Castro, for 3 years (2006-2010) every single workday he was there from 11:00 till late afternoon. Next to his ex- table there is memorial tablet.
It is an underground bistro where the warm and laid-back atmosphere will always enchant with good cheer. Guests (locals and tourists as well) adore their food and music, usually it is really hard to get a table there.
I have already tasted everything from their menu, they have a good offer and serve delicious food in a moderate price. Despite its name (it was supposed to be a Cuban restaurant, but before opening they changed their mind) there is no Cuban food, but they have Indian and Serbian dishes and vegetarians meals as well. I adore their onion soup and the spicy rice balls filled with cheese, but I am usually in a big trouble, when time comes to choose.
One of the places in Budapest where is good to have breakfast, lunch, a relaxing afternoon, dinner and an evening before a party!
