Castro Bistro – A must go!

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 its good mood. Guests (locals and tourists as well) adore their food and music, usually it is really hard to get a table there. In Summer they open the terrace as well.

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 international kitchen and vegetarian meals as well. They offer lunch menu, you can check it on their facebook page.

From time to time surprise concerts are held here with famous Hungarian bands (1 of them: Intim Torna Illegal was formed here), but Caspian Hat Dance, Les Touffes Kretiennes were also playing here.

One of the places in Budapest where it’s good to have breakfast, lunch, a relaxing afternoon, dinner and an evening before a party!
