Lots of fun. We were surprised by an hour night tour of this city before we went to dinner. Great food and wine. Good company and our guide Francis was a delight. Would recommend this as a fun night out

Budapest Folklore Show with Dinner
The pick-up from and return to our Hotel worked well. The concept of holding a folklore show and dinner in an old cellar was very appealing. Unfortunately, this event was a bit disappointing. The cellar utilized is long and very narrow with bench tables lined up along each side of the cellar with a narrow passage in between. The show was performed essentially at one end of the cellar and difficult to view by most patrons due to this seating configuration. The night we attended mid-June the temperature there was unpleasant due to poor air circulation. The meal - by necessity of the number of patrons, was batch prepared for quicker distribution. However, the standard of food could have been improved. Plenty of house red or white wine was available and included with the meal.

First we were told pickup at hotel would be 6:15, but when they didn't come, we called and time was really 7pm. Show was average. Dancing not bad but difficult to see as the room is long and narrow, so stage is a long way away. Goulash soup was good, but rest of meal so-so. Given brandy on arrival that was awful. Worst part was when the quartet came to serenade at each table and were very aggressive about getting a tip--leaning over you, holding out money for change. The evening with poor food, poor venue, did not need extra cost to tip the musicians! Not the greatest evening.

We visited the Folklore show with dinner in Budapest 5 adults, the food was average - not relay Hungarian except the Gulash soup.
This is a very nice vine cellar the show is at one end of the place so if you are not sitting near to the performers its hard to see or hear.
Not recommended.

Our group was small, but friendly. Our guide/leader, Ildiko sp?, was friendly, knowledgeable and fluent in a number of different languages. The restaurant and its staff were welcoming and friendly. The food was of very good quality--and quantity! Because we had some time before we were due to arrive at the restaurant, we appreciated that Ildiko had the bus driver take us into the hills of Buda to get a breathtaking view of the city lights far below.

This event was well orchestrated from hotel pickup to hotel return. The venue was fun. The private room to the side was better than being in the larger hall. We had our own musicians who played the entire dinner. The lead violinist was VERY good. The dancers were what you would typically expect. The meal was tasty and they generously placed entire bottles of white and red wines on the tables. Over 30 years I have from time to time booked viator tours in several countries. I would consistently rate them 4 to 5 stars.

The tour guide, Stephan Tall Guy, was outstanding while the show was good and the dinner was OK. However, Stephan, made the whole experience outstanding. Why? For an English tour his English was good to the point of understanding humor. He took on a tour of the town on the way to the dinner and gave us a night tour on the way back that few tourists are able to see. Besides my wife and I, there were two other couples in the van. We all thought his experience was outstanding. While showing us around town and pointing out the significance of various sites, he explained the history of Hungary and Budapest. He is very proud of what Hungary has accomplished since their freedom from communist rule.
