Good but touristy Hungarian restaurant!
Paprika Vendéglő in Budapest is a restaurant offering traditional, hearty Hungarian dishes in oversize. From traditional gulyásleves (Goulash Soup) to Pörkölt and family sized meat dishes you can find anything that foreigners would like to try. Not only the meals are traditional Hungarian but also the interior is kept in a countryside farm house style which reminds of the Puszta and horse riding men popping in to grab a bite and some Pálinka.
Lets get back to reality and the food in Paprika Vendéglő, meaning restaurant or Inn, which is as many people think Hungarian food is like, greasy. First of all the portions are not just big but useless over sized so that a grown up men has no chance to finish his plate without falling into a deep, long lasting hibernation. Without Pálinka your stomach will not recover for days. On top of the uneatable portions the food is swimming in grease which makes any food food heavy as stones.
To stay fair I have to admit that the food tastes really great and traditional Hungarian, that is the taste you would get from an old lady cooking traditionally in a small village far away from Budapest. However to manage the sizes you should bring an empty, big stomach to finish at least reasonable.
Paprika vendéglő is very nicely decorated and reminds of an old farm house in the countryside of Hungary which is quite inviting. A lot of wood, an old oven and massive chairs and tables bring a really nice Hungarian feeling into the restaurant so that many tourists will feel good and have a great time. Also the prices are moderate and seeing the portions I think even fair. So for people who want to experience a bit of Hungarian, traditional countryside in Budapest I can recommend Paprika Vendéglő however be sure to maybe chose the children portion in order to finish your plate.
