Bustling landmark café and bakery since 1914.

Open for warm breakfast, espresso and fresh house pastries. Classic short café menu till late night with simple local and french favorites.

Déryné's kitchen is proud to be featured in the Michelin Guide Main Cities of Europe, as Bib Gourmand or Recommended since 2014. Please note that a service charge will be included in your bill to benefit our whole team. Any additional tip is appreciated but absolutely not expected.

Déryné is in the Royal Castle neighborhood, in downtown Buda. It is a 5 minute walk from Chain Bridge or Matthias Church. Drop ins are always welcome but reserve for occasions to make sure you get in front of lines. See you soon!

There were a slight selection from vegetarian meals and the live music was too loud - we had hardly heard each other so we left earlier than planned.

Food was sub-par and very expensive for Budapest. Quite disappointing. Dessert was good. They charge for everything, even things you do not ask for (like toasted bread).
They almost forcibly served us a very expensive wine, which they said was "medium priced".

Service was in all other regards good, and the locale very nice. But not even close to worth the price. I would avoid this place.

We could appreciate a bit more quiet atmosphere.

The live music has never been a good choice in our opinion for 5 years now (since my first visit at Déryné).

This was the first time when the waiters were a bit too much.. I’d prefer elegant service instead of showman perfomances.

Overall it’s still one of the most outstanding restaurant in the city with gorgeous interior design!

Seating was not well organized, all double tables were jammed together while other tables were completely free (Monday, early afternoon), we could overhear other's conversations. Superior food, rest of service was very nice.
