The legendary GERBEAUD, in the heart of Budapest, is one of the largest, most traditional, and most famous café-confectioneries in Europe. The café was established by Henrik Kugler in 1858 and expanded by its later owner, Emil Gerbeaud, and by 1990 was already world-famous. Lovingly renovated in 1997, GERBEAUD shines with the cultured nostalgia of its original days: rich plaster work, magnificent chandeliers, marble tables, lavish fine wood paneling, and brocade wall coverings that characterise the elegant, yet comfortable atmosphere of this home of tradition. The Restaurant Gerbeaud is located in the covered courtyard on the Harmincad utca side of the Gerbeaud House. You will find the best dishes of the Hungarian and the International cuisine on the menu which is updated seasonally. Express Business Lunch is offered daily as well as the Candlelight Dinner. The historic vaulted cellars of Gerbeaud House, carefully restored and renovated in 1998, are the home of the Gerbeaud Pub. Meals at Gerbeaud Pub meals are hearty but not heavy. The menu ranges from beer snacks to grilled specialities to varieties of the beloved Hungarian pörkölt (goulash).
