Macesz Bistro is an Eastern European bistro in the Old Jewish district of Budapest. It offers the hidden and well known treasures of the Hungarian and Jewish cuisines, with traditional and reimagined courses for their guests. The continuously updated menu is ensured by chef Ákos Tasnádi, beyond the á la carte assortment the daily offer’s seasonal specialties diversify the selection.

We take great care of assembling the wine list, offering from the best domestic wineries with some specialities.

We reopened Macesz after the pandemic in the spring of 2022. We can not wait to meet again our haunters and new guests as well.

The restaurant is suitable for exclusive events with up to 60 people as well.

Macesz Bistro is one of the most exciting culinary spots in downtown Budapest, an excellent choice for a romantic dinner, a family lunch or a business meeting.

    Generally I would recommend the place but unfortunately the staff is quite money oriented it seems. I left with a bad feeling in me after I had received the bill including service fee and the waiter expressed his need for tip on top of that. The place is anyway not cheap which is fine but this kind of attitude is a no go for me.

    I have no complaints, the cuisine is excellent, the service is cheerful, direct and friendly, but the price of the dinner was more than I expected. But I have no regrets, it was very good.

    Az ételek nagyon finomak és bőségesek voltak. A kiszolgálás kifogástalan volt, nagyon jól éreztük magunkat.

    A classy place to eat. Food is fantastic and the wines outstanding. If you are not Hungarian listen to the waiters on the wines.

    Charming cafe- felt quiet and comfortable. Also a friendly waiter who helped us pick a mid-price local red wine (Takler winery) that was delicious. We loved trying some local favorites: beef stew and goose dish. Wouldn’t normally eat goose, but Hungarians do so we tried it. It was so good!
