Beautiful location with alright food on top of Normafa!
The restaurant Normakert is a small restaurant up in the near Budapest recreation area Normafa where people come for tours, Picnic or even for skiing in winter. In this large area Normakert is located on top of the hill near the parking space and the bus stop so in a very prominent place. The house it is located in is fairly old and nice though not really renovated to high end which brings me to the food.
It is rather classical Hungarian with Goulash Soup, Hortobágyi palacsinta and many deep fried things but overall it is very nice, especially the soups are great. Portions are very generous so don’t be worried to go home starving, a starter and a main course will fill up a grown up easily, for children rather try to get a kids plate or just share your dish. From pricing point of view Norakert in Budapest is I would say average and absolutely justified for the amount and the taste and also for such a recreation area the price is fair.
One little remark that I came across is the service which on weekends is overloaded with work and not really paying attention, so you need to fight to place an order or to get the bill.
As there are not many other restaurants nearby, except from the restaurant Normafa which is great, there is no other choice to eat if you want to have warm food during a cold winter’s day. However there are a lot of small little shops offering sausages and Lángos around so it is not mandatory to pop into Normakert if you are Hungary. I wouldn’t consider Normakert as one of my favorite restaurants in Budapest but it is absolutely no problem to jump in and grab a bite.
