It was a cold evening. I and Shayan after a day long walk around Budapest city felt tired. We were looking for a place to relax and spend some peaceful time while enjoying the beautiful evening in Budapest. Halo lights at Buda castle were turned on. The greenish water of the Danube river reflected the sunset sky in its flowing water. We had crossed the river from Buda side to Pest side of the city. For those who do not know, Budapest is a combination of two cities: Buda and Pest. Buda side of the city is situated to the west of the city and Pest to the East.
We had walked down from the Buda castle and crossed the iconic Chain bridge across the Danube river to the pest side. The evening was spreading her dark shawl over the city. We took a right turn after crossing the chain bridge and crossed a station called ‘Eötvös tér’. It’s a small railway station where tram shows up. We walked little further towards the North and there were a series of restaurants. The name of that street is ‘Belgrad Rakpart’. On this street, After the intercontinental hotel, there is a series of restaurants offering the view of the Buda castle across the Danube river. If you want to know the exact location of the area, here is on the google map:
Restaurants in Budapest Offering nice View of Buda Castle
The Ambience at the restaurant was very peaceful. They lit candles and dim lights all around the restaurants. Ships will be standing at the ferry point in the Danube river. However, they do not obstruct the view of the Buda Castle. Some street musicians will keep on playing very nice music to ears. We had ordered pizza for ourselves.
Yes! the food they serve is very nice. You can also book your dining on the ship tour. However, that will be little costlier I guess. So we stuck to eating there. Every restaurant has a menu card displayed at the street. So we didn’t find it difficult to choose the price according to our budget. However, the exchange rate at Budapest is much lower than Euros so it was not much difficult for us to have a nice luxury dining.
Here are some of the pictures of the Buda Castle in the night taken from the restaurants across the river:
